The Cord-Cutter’s Guide To How To Watch The Super Bowl

For a few hours on Sunday, Fox is nixing subscription requirements and opening its Fox Sports Go app to anyone who has cut cable from their lives or has a temperamental TV antenna. After the game ends, Fox’s live stream goes back to paid users only — or those with a decent antenna.

“Live TV, particularly live sports, has long been a challenge for cord cutters,” said Brett Sappington, senior director of research at Parks Associates, which tracks the internet TV market. “Because those rights are so expensive, they are often held behind a paywall or are only accessible via a local broadcast network.”
