Illustration for article titled How to Watch Super Bowl 47

This Sunday, the San Francisco 49ers will battle the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl 47. The action will air on CBS. Kickoff is at 6:30PM ET. Here's how to watch it no matter where you are.



The game will stream live online at both CBS Sports and It might be fun to keep these streams up even if you're watching on TV because CBS will be offering multiple camera angles as part of the service.



The video player will be optimized for tablets and smartphones, which we assume means it won't use flash.

Furthermore if you've got Verizon you can stream the game live using the NFL Mobile app for Android and iOS.


CBS will broadcast the game live in HD to everyone in America over the old fashioned airwaves on your local CBS station.



Aside from watching the game on your local cable provider Time Warner Cable will let you stream the game live online using your home Wi-Fi LiveTVAnytime or the TWC TV app for iOS or Android. Comcast Xfinity doens't have live TV streaming for CBS.


Satellite TV

  • DirecTV: The game will air on Channel 47. The DirecTV mobile app doesn't have CBS.
  • Dish Network: The game airs on channels 243 and 244. Its also available using the Dish Anywhere Mobile App anywhere using both Wi-FI and 3G/4G data. The app is available for both iOS and Android.

Don't have a TV?

Go to a friend's house. Or a bar. Which bar? Any bar. Hooters! The local dive! Everyone will have it.



Sadly, the online streams won't work if you're in the US unless you sign up for NFL Game Pass. Luckily, there are slews of sites that let you watch online live TV illegally. Try First Row Sports and Stream Hunter first.
