Super Bowl LI, pitting the New England Patriots Super Bowl 2017 Live Stream against the Atlanta Falcons, is coming up Sunday, Feb. 5, and in anticipation of the massive audience there are options for both pay-TV subscribers and cord cutters to stream the game live.According to Sports Video Group, CBS saw 3.96 million unique viewers livestream last year’s Super Bowl, and Fox is expecting that number to grow this year.
The number of viewers could stand to increase dramatically for Fox because the broadcaster is electing to use an non-authenticated stream for the Super Bowl, which means that anyone can watch the big game via the Fox Sports Go app.
The Fox Sports Go app works with both Android and iOS devices, as well as on connected devices like Apple TV, Roku, Android TV, Chromecast, Amazon Fire and Xbox One. The stream is also available online at FoxSportsGo.com.

Viewers looking for something a little more immersive have the option of downloading the Fox Sports VR app and watching the game from a virtual suite. The app, which works in 360-degree mode or with a VR headset like Samsung Gear VR or Google Cardboard, will also offer views from down on the field. For the VR experience, viewers will need a pay-TV account to authenticate the stream.
Viewers going with the livestream will also get access to Field Pass, which will offer up less-produced footage of the field leading up to the game.
Even though Fox made the Super Bowl 2017 Live Stream free for everyone, like CBS did last year, the broadcaster will still be under the gun to provide a high-quality experience for viewers who tune in online.
The quality of the livestream becomes even more scrutinized when it’s delivered exclusively, such as Fox’s stream of the big game. When cord-cutters and other OTT-only viewers don’t have another option for watching the game, they expect a broadcast-quality experience, and that demands that the provider have the information required to detect and address issues as fast as possible, before the stream failure becomes tomorrow’s big news story,” said Kurt Michel, IneoQuest’s senior director of marketing, in a statement.
One thing that may make the Super Bowl livestream seem a little more relevant this year for viewers across the country will be Fox dynamically inserting local ads.

Fox Sports has teamed with 170 local Fox affiliates to sell ad inventory for the livestream. The ads will be dynamically inserted into the livestream based on the location of viewers.
Our pioneering collaboration with our affiliates to allow streaming local ad insertions will make commercials even more relevant for viewers and help make this year’s game even more of a personal experience for every fan,” said Fox Sports President Eric Shanks in a statement.
Super Bowl week has arrived, so CBS is paying tribute to the other pomp and circumstance of the big game with its one-hour special Super Bowl Greatest Commercials 2017.
CBS Sports personality and former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason will team up with NCIS: Los Angeles actress Daniela Ruah to count down what audiences have voted as the greatest TV spots from Super Bowls past.
Remember Budweiser’s adorable “Lost Dog” Super Bowl 2017 Live ad that made us all tear up? Or Apple’s “1984” spot that portrayed a bleak future until something came along and shattered it? Then there are the ads with star power, like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson hyping milk and some Victoria’s Secret models.
There has been no shortage of creative ideas for Super Bowl commercials, and every year the bar seems to get raised higher (or at least more outlandish). Now CBS is gathering all the best ones for audiences to enjoy in one hour.Here’s how you can watch Super Bowl Greatest Commercials 2017 live, on TV and via live stream.
It’s that time of year again, folks. The top players from the NFC and AFC will collide to see which conference is superior. This is the first time since 2012 in which the Pro Bowl will be played under the conference-based format.
You may not see players deliver big hits in this game, but you will get to watch exotic play calls and fancy celebrations. Coaches and players will try to get creative and leave fans in awe.
The NFL’s all-star game, our last chance to watch football before Super Bowl LI, will air at 8 p.m. ET Sunday night on ESPN, with a live stream available at WatchESPN. Unlike previous years, the game will not be held in Hawaii. This year, it will be played at Camping World Stadium in Orlando.
Although many players voted into the Pro Bowl won’t participate, there are big names who will still take the field Sunday night.
And don’t forget about Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce and Raiders punter Marquette King, who will surely entertain us in some fashion — perhaps a dance-off?
Last year, Von Miller couldn’t play in the Pro Bowl because he was getting ready for the Super Bowl, and he would go on to win Super Bowl MVP. This time around, with the Broncos missing out on the playoffs, Miller gets a chance to shine in a game that no one takes too seriously.
Two Super Bowl winners will captain the AFC team: Jerome Bettis and Ray Lewis. For the NFC, it’ll be Charles Woodson and Tony Gonzalez.Aaron Rodgers, Larry Fitzgerald, and David Johnson won’t play for the NFC, but the leading vote-getter at Super Bowl Live running back is all ready to go. Cowboys rookie Ezekiel Elliott was nothing short of amazing in his first season. His blend of power, speed, and agility was on full display as he ran for a league-high 1,631 yards.
There are star players at wide receiver, too. Doug Baldwin will replace Fitzgerald, and Dez Bryant will also play in the Pro Bowl as Jones’s replacement. New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who showed off his incomparable one-handed catching abilities in the Pro Bowl Skills Showdown, will also bring the fireworks.
The NFC will be coached by the Cowboys staff, while the Chiefs staff will oversee the AFC team.While this matchup will be competitive, it’s Super Bowl all about having fun. With a new location, a new format, and big personalities, the Pro Bowl could be entertaining this year.source
