Here’s the short, to-the-point way to watch the New England Patriots battle the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII, for free: Stream it here, courtesy of CBS Sports.
If that’s not working, download the NFL app for whatever device you have. You can do that by clicking here. You’ll should be watching the Super Bowl online, for free, in no time.
There’s no login, no request for the name of your cable provider, no nothing. You should be able to just watch.
If for some reason it doesn’t work on your device, click here for the Yahoo sports app. (If you’re like the Patriots and Rams, even your backup plans have backup plans.)
Why are we going so hard for the NFL and Yahoo options? Because they’ve been working great for us all season, since the start of Patriots’ and Rams’ long fights to the Super Bowl.
If you’re willing to do a little more typing, sign up for CBS All Access. You can get a free trial, and watch plenty of other programming, too. We recommend “The Good Fight.” Also: Mark your calendar or set an alarm on your phone to remember to cancel if you don’t want to end up paying for CBS All Access long after the Super Bowl is over.
Or maybe you’ll want to keep it. “The Good Fight” really is pretty great.
Those are the fastest options, and all assume you’re internet connection is pretty good. The game is at at 3:30 PT and 6:30 ET, so depending on when you read this, you may also have time to run out and buy an antennae for your TV. Don’t laugh: It works.
Of course, since you’ve clicked on a story called “How to Watch the Super Bowl Online for Free,” we’re assuming TV isn’t an option at the moment. But if it is, you can of course watch the game on your local CBS station.
Also, if reading this has exhausted you, and you’ve decided you don’t want to watch the Super Bowl after all, we’ve compiled a list of What to Watch on Super Bowl Sunday Instead of Football. Or seriously, check out “The Good Fight.”
