How to watch Super Bowl 50 streamed live on your Android, iOS or Windows device


CBS is making it inherently easy this year to watch the Super Bowl streamed live online to your viewing weapon of choice, as it will be broadcasting the game directly on its website for all fans willing to tune in. There will also be commentary studios, and even a dedicated section for the best ads that air during the Super Bowl, all streamed to most every gear with a screen you have lying around the house. Here are all the details:

What: Super Bowl's 50th anniversary game

Who: Denver Broncos vs Carolina Panthers

Where: Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, home of the San Francisco 49ers

When: Sunday, February 7th, at 6:30pm ET/3:30pm PT

How to watch: go directly to the live stream link, or download the CBS Sports app for Android, iOS or Windows Mobile

Which devices are supported: iPads and Android tablets using 5.0 Lollipop or higher, Roku, Apple TV, Xbox, Chromecast and others with the CBS Sports app/channel

As you can see, phones are notably absent from the platforms you can stream the Super Bowl live to, as there is a licensing agreements with the NFL and other vendors that the games are restricted for desktop or tablet viewing only, and CBS does not have the rights to stream over smartphones. Who would want to watch the game on a puny phone display, you'd ask? 

Well, plenty of people stuck with just their handsets availble, so here's one official way around the CBS/NFL licensing restriction -  if you are a Verizon Wireless subscriber, then you can stream the game directly from within the official NFL Mobile app for iOS, Android or Windows Mobile

Bear in mind that CBS will dedicate the whole day on the Super Bowl 50 coverage, so if you want to tune in much earlier with Bud, chips and salsa, as usual, here is the channel's Super Bowl coverage schedule for game day:
