How to watch the Super Bowl from your Android phone or tablet; Cortana picks the Pats to win

How to watch the Super Bowl from your Android phone or tablet; Cortana picks the Pats to win
If you have an Android phone or tablet, there are really just a couple of ways for you to watch the Super Bowl tomorrow, as the game action is streamed to your device. Those sporting an Android powered tablet should head over to the Google Play Store to install the NBC Sports Live Extra app. The tablet version of the app will allow you to set a reminder to notify you when the game between the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots is ready to begin.

Even though the app does work on smartphones, the game will be available only on the tablet version. That is because NFL Mobile is the only mobile app for your handset that will stream the game. This year will be the first time that the Super Bowl halftime extravaganza will be streamed, which means we hope you dig Katy Perry as much as John Mayer does.

To get the NFL Mobile app, you need to be a Verizon Wireless subscriber. Those who are signed up for the More Everything plan will see the game streamed for free. The rest of you will have to pay $5. If you need to earn the five bucks, we hear that New England is paying people 50 cents for each football they can deflate. That's just a joke.

What isn't a joke is that Cortana has made her prediction and she says that New England will win. You can't poo-poo the Windows Phone personal assistant; she was 15-1 during last year's World Cup! She is also 8-2 in the NFL playoffs, and has the Patriots winning 24-23.

Well sorry cortana your wrong soccer is easier to predict football has more action and I am English so don't give me crap people just started watching this is 3rd year and I am a seahawks fan I looked them because of there uniforms hahaha but after seeing them before they went to super bowl I told everyone they are the best in defense they control the game take out the quarter back you own the team but Wilson is not the deciding factor of the seahawks this is why I was right last year and this 6 and they will win again this year tomorrow

Did you just said that American-football has more action than football? Please go away.

IMO rugby union and rugby league are the best viewing sports No constant ad break, unlike american football No diving soccer/football and basketball Very very physical and no protection, helmets and pads, unlike american football Only problem with rugby union is the All Blacks (New Zealand) have been too dominant recently, and the northern hemisphere teams aren't as attacking as the southern hemisphere teams So it would have to be rugby league if I had to choose one

You think a one hour game with 3 hours of breaks has more action than soccer?

Maybe not more action, but more interesting action.

Unless falling down and crying like a school girl in order to fake an injury is considered action.

That's better than domestic abuse, assault and drug use.

Is that referring to the fans at the European football stadiums? If so, add racism and it is extremely accurate.

That's true. NFL halftime shows are great.

My history teacher is a huge Seahawks fan, and he drew a picture on the board of Paul Revere, with the Patriots' logo over his head, yelling "The Seahawks are coming!" at George Washington, who has a Seahawk logo over his head.

I just watch the Superbowl for the commercials and halftime show. I hate sport, especially football. I still don't understand the excitement people get for these games. I guess it's just because I am a geek.

Cortanta is picking against her hometown team?! I hope she is right. As much as I love the idea of the Seahawks, and I dislike the Pats... Niners fans hate the very idea of anything to do with the Seahawks.

Just so everyone is aware, NFL mobile does not have mirroring support, so no Chromecast or Apple TV.

Well, it looks like Cortana was slightly off.
