You don’t have to pay for cable or satellite TV to watch the Super Bowl on Sunday. You don’t even have to own a television.

Fox has announced several ways you can tune in for the big game.


Fox will air the Super Bowl nationally. Because it’s a broadcast network, no pay-TV subscription is necessary — all you need is an antenna. You can find an antenna at various online retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy and Walmart.

Dan Schointuch, Money Talks News’ vice president and resident tech guru, recommends visiting before buying, though, to see how powerful of an antenna you’ll need to get the channels you want based on where you live.

If you already have a pay-TV subscription, note that the game will also air on the cable network Fox Sports and its Spanish-language equivalent, Fox Deportes.


You can watch the game for free on a computer or tablet at

You can also watch the Super Bowl broadcast for free on Fox Sports Go, which is Fox Sports’ streaming platform for live events.
