On Sunday night, the atmosphere at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, will be electric as the New England Patriots meet the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI.
Whether you’re rooting for the Patriots, cheering for the Falcons, or just tune in for the commercials, here are three ways you can catch all the action of Super Bowl LI.
Stream The Super Bowl With Your TV Subscription
The simple way: tune your TV to Fox! In addition to listening to seven-time Emmy Award-winning play-by-play announcer Joe Buck and three-time Super Bowl Champion—and Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback—Troy Aikman call their fifth Super Bowl together, you’ll get to experience what Tom Taylor of Sports Illustrated calls “a far richer experience than those on the ground.”
Fox has partnered with Silicon Valley tech-company Intel to bring you “Be the Player,” which provides a 3D reconstruction of a player’s view on the field. To get it, Intel installed 38 5K cameras that act more like sensors in the rafters around NRG Stadium. The cameras point down to the field and send visual data to servers located elsewhere in the stadium. So when Fox wants to show viewers like you what Tom Brady saw as he stepped to the line of scrimmage, it’ll send a request, and a minute or two later, you’ll see the field from Brady’s point of view.
So on Sunday, if you’re a Frontier customer, tune your TV to channel 83, or 583 to watch it in HD.
Stream Super Bowl LI Without A TV Subscription
Just as you were able to stream the Summer Olympics last year without a TV subscription, you can do the same with Super Bowl LI.
You can stream it using Fox Sports GO on pretty much any device: iOS, Android, Windows, and Amazon tablets. You can also use Fox Sports GO on connected devices, including Apple TV, Roku, Android TV, Chromecast, Amazon Fire and Xbox One.
Speaking of connected devices, you can stream Super Bowl LI with the Sling Blue package, which includes NBC and Fox in select markets, or through PlayStation Vue, which has the same deal as the Sling Blue package.
Have other plans Sunday during the Super Bowl? Or perhaps you’re not particular about watching sports in real-time. Whatever your reason for doing something else Sunday night, National Football League (NFL) has you covered with its NFL Gamepass. You can watch the Super Bowl any time after midnight.
Streaming The Super Bowl In VR
Following in the footsteps of Stanford University, and the Olympics, Fox is pulling out all the technology stops for Super Bowl LI. It’s partnered with LiveLike—which offers “the world’s first virtual reality platform to watch live sports with friends”—to bring you Super Bowl highlights in VR.
You can watch Super Bowl highlights in VR via the Fox Sports VR app—for iOS, Android, Gear VR—and you don’t need additional hardware to check out the VR stream. If you have a cardboard VR viewer, like Google Cardboard or Samsung Gear, you’ll be able to have an “enhanced experience.”
