You do not have to be in the cold and wintry stadium to experience the Superbowl this year. Avoid the daylight robbery ticket prices and experience the championship game on a TV as large as two football stadiums and 12th man sound decibel sound bars and the good news is you do not even have to be near a television the whole time. Fox Sport and the NFLTV have decided to partner up and expand streaming for the 2015 NFL super bowl via the web and on selected devices on live from Rutherford New jersey on the 2nd of February. This effectively means that the game broadcast follows you around unavoidably. The hardest thing you will have to do is to decide which app and device to buy to watch the title game between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Hawks.

How to stream the Super Bowl
The live stream of the Superbowl 2015 will be available on Ipads using the FOX Go sports app and using FoxSportsGo.com on desktop for users within the U.S. The NFL already has a deal with Verizon that does not allow Fox to stream on smartphones, fans have to subscribe to the NFL Mobile from Verizon. Verizon’s mobile app is free to download on Android, iOS, BlackBerry and Windows phone, but is only available for Verizon subscribers for a premium of $5 a month. Fans however can stream the game to the FOX Sports Go Ipad app.
Online and mobile viewers will not see the same ads that appear in the television braodcast. Fox is selling the digital feed different from the online feed. The TV inventory sold out in December with the Fox Sport’s senior VP for mobile and online platforms saying that they are still looking for digital advertisers. He however refused to give out specific company names for the digital advertisers.
The live stream from Fox will have both an English and Spanish broadcast. This is the first time in the U.S. that there have been two separate live streams. NBC was the first to broadcast the live stream for the SuperBowl on the internet for free in 2012. They had 2.1 million users in the first year. In 2013 CBS streamed the game attracting 3 million users an increase of 43% from the last year.
The NFL has launched the NFL On Super Bowl app that has push notifications in case of any changes in the schedule due to the weather or any other reason. The app provides a map to show which showa all events taking place in the stadium and is available both on Android and iOS. This is essential for anyone who decides to go and watch in the game live in the MettLife stadium. For those who will be streaming, there is an equally commemorative magazine, the Super Bow 2015- NFL official program available on Ipad.
The streaming methods and the apps will help everyone to have a festive game viewing experience this year.
