How can I watch the Super Bowl on my phone or mobile device?

Whether you’re planning to watch the Super Bowl while you’re on the go, or simply want the flexibility of watching the game on a smaller screen, there are plenty of options for viewing on mobile — from your iPhone and iPad to Android devices. The Super Bowl will air on the NFL mobile app, and you can watch the game by signing up for an NFL+ account ($5 per month). Fox Sports also has a mobile app. If you have an existing cable TV subscription, just download the Fox Sports mobile app to your device of choice, and you’ll be prompted to sign in using your cable account. Additionally, Fubo TV, Sling TV, YouTube TV and Hulu all have mobile apps.

How do I watch the Super Bowl in 4K?

According to Fox Sports, the game will be shot in HD and then upconverted to 4K, instead of being shot in 4K. That means the broadcast won't be in "true" 4K, but it should still have improved sharpness and vividness compared to the regular broadcast. Fox will also record the game in an HDR format called HLG and then convert it to HDR10, a widely supported format.

If you have cable and want to watch the game in 4K, you'll need to contact your provider to see if it supports it. TV service providers such as Altice Optimum, Comcast Xfinity, Cox Contour TV, Verizon FiOS, DirecTV and Dish Network have already said they would support it. Additionally, Comcast Xfinity has said it would provide the Super Bowl in Dolby Vision 4K HDR.

If you don't have cable, you can watch the game in 4K through YouTube TV (requires an extra $20 4K Plus package) or Fubo TV (4K streaming is included in the $70 base price).

You can also watch the game in 4K through the Fox Sports app as mentioned above.

What do I need to stream the game and watch Fox without cable?

You'll need a streaming device, such as an Amazon Fire TV Stick, a Roku or an Apple TV. You can select one from our Best Streaming Devices list.
