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.

TV

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 AntennaWeb.org 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.

Online

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

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

While Fox Sports Go is included with pay-TV subscriptions, you will not be required to enter a pay-TV subscription user name or password to access the Super Bowl broadcast. So anyone with an internet connection can watch this way.

To watch on your computer, visit FoxSportsGo.com.

To watch on a mobile device, download the Fox Sports Go app, which is available for:

  • Android
  • Apple iOS
  • Kindle Fire
  • Windows

Connected device

You can also stream Fox Sports Go’s Super Bowl broadcast on a smart TV or other TV that is connected to:

  • Amazon Fire
  • Android TV
  • Apple TV
  • Google Chromecast
  • Roku
  • Xbox One

Radio

If you have access to any of the following, you can catch the Super Bowl on the radio:

  • Westwood One (Westwood One Sports)
  • SiriusXM (NFL Radio)
  • TuneIn (NFL on TuneIn)
  • Entravision
