There are several ways viewers can stream the Super Bowl for free. And the even better news? You can watch the Super Bowl online for free legally.

Watch the Super Bowl Online on Fox

Fox has the right to air the 2023 Super Bowl, which means that anyone with cable access to Fox can easily watch the Super Bowl. You can also watch the 2023 Super Bowl online at with your TV provider login. Another option if you’d like to stream the Super Bowl for those with access to Fox through a cable TV subscription is to watch online at

Stream the Super Bowl Free on FuboTV

If you don’t have cable access, fear not! There are still a number of ways to watch the Super Bowl online. Among those is a streaming service called FuboTV that not only grants you access to NBC, and thus the 2023 Super Bowl, but also has a 7-day free trial. If you’re hankering for a way to watch the game but have little interest in any additional content, you can cancel your membership after the big game before your free trial is up.

Stream the Super Bowl on SlingTV

SlingTV is another live TV subscription service for those who want to avoid cable. You can choose from different channel packages, most of which have access to Fox and thus the Super Bowl. SlingTV also has a free trial, but only if you sign up on a Sling compatible device like an Apple TV or Roku. That means you can sign up, watch the Super Bowl for free, and then cancel during your trial to avoid any fees.

You can watch the Super Bowl on YouTube TV

In addition to Fubo and Sling, the Super Bowl is also available through YouTube TV. Like Fubo and Sling, it also comes with a free trial, and offers access to Fox, which should allow you to watch the game without paying. YouTube TV should be available on most devices.

Watch the Super Bowl on Hulu + Live TV

If you haven’t heard from the fairly insistent advertising campaign, Hulu also has a live sports package. Hulu doesn’t seem to have any sort of free trial, though, and it costs $70/mo, so you should be confident you’re going to use this service before you decide to sign up just for the Super Bowl.

worst and best super bowl halftime shows beyonce

The Super Bowl isn't just the biggest football game of the year — it's an entertainment spectacle that captures the attention of millions of people all over the U.S. Hardcore football fans may be more focused on the teams competing on the gridiron, but more casual viewers tune in for the laughs during commercial breaks and the talented musicians who take over the halftime stage. While the show has been a longstanding tradition of the game, it wasn't until the 1990s that the National Football League (NFL) realized the potential of using the intermission to keep people glued to their couches. The artists who appear during halftime have been diverse and memorable, though not always for the right reasons. We thought it was a good time to remember the best Super Bowl halftime shows — and some of the worst — ever.
