The biggest football event of the year is almost here, so we’re giving you all the information on how to watch the Super Bowl 2020 live stream online, even if you’re outside the US on February 2, 2020 (kickoff time is at 6:30 pm ET).

San Francisco 49ers (National Football Conference) will battle for the Vince Lombardi Trophy against the Kansas City Chiefs (American Football Conference). The game will be played at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. The game will be broadcast by Fox.

How to watch Super Bowl 2020 live online?

The Finals between the 49ers and the Chiefs will be broadcasted by the Fox network. For the first time, the stream will be available in 4K on, FOX Sports, and FOX NOW apps for those with pay-TV providers DirecTV, Dish Network, Comcast Xfinity X1, Altice Optimum, and Verizon Fios.

Many of these online platforms are geo-restricted and unavailable outside the US or UK. However, there is a way to live stream without any geo-restrictions.  You can do this by using a VPN (Virtual Private Network).

Here are the top 3 VPNs to use for the Super Bowl in 2020:

VPNpro rating: 9.6 / 10

The fastest and most secure VPN on the market, NordVPN boasts a network containing 5400+ servers in 59 countries. If you don’t like it, use their 30-day money-back guarantee after the game is done.

Surfshark VPN

VPNpro rating: 9.4 / 10

Surfshark is a great VPN service, but where it kills the competition is cost-effectiveness. Prices start at the low number of $1.94/month, and each subscription offers unlimited connections – with Surfshark, your friends can catch the Super Bowl too.

VPNpro rating: 8.4 / 10

CyberGhost was built with casual users in mind – it’s slick, intuitive, and the app looks really cool. But don’t be fooled because this is a powerful VPN tool you’ll appreciate well after the Super Bowl is over. If not, just use the 45-day money-back guarantee.

How to stream Super Bowl 2020 live with a VPN

If you don’t have an easy way to stream Super Bowl 2020 or it won’t be available in your location, the best option is to download and install a VPN.

After launching your VPN service, the next step is choosing a server in the United Kingdom. Super Bowl 2020 is broadcast for free in the UK, meaning you also won’t have to pay a penny to watch the whole event without commercial breaks.

Once you have a UK IP address assigned to you, simply go to, which is both a free and legal streaming service. Now you only need to find the BBC One channel,  sit back, and enjoy Super Bowl 2020, ad-free. However, if you want to stream it on different platforms, you can use BBC iPlayer, Sky Sports, or Sky Go as long as you keep using the UK IP.

How to watch Super Bowl 2020 live for free in the US

You will need a US IP address to access the Fox live stream. If you don’t, you’ll need to use a VPN like it was explained above and choose a server in the US.

But there will also be other streaming services that offer a free trial, in addition to plenty of other channels. Here’s some of them that you can try:

  • YouTubeTV – $49.99/month. You get CBS, Fox, NBC, and ESPN.
  • DirecTV – $50/ month. You get CBS, Fox, NBC, and ESPN. NFL Network is $5 extra.
  • Hulu with Live TV – $54.99/month. You get CBS, Fox, NBC, and ESPN.
  • FuboTV – $55/month. You get CBS, Fox, NBC, and the NFL Network.

These options are for those who don’t want to miss the commentary of Joe Buck and Troy Aikman.

How to stream Super Bowl 2020 for free in Canada

CTV/TSN is the official broadcaster of the Super Bowl in Canada. Those who won’t be at home sitting in front of their TVs should download the CTV Go app. It works on multiple devices and will help you not miss a thing.

Not having a cable doesn’t mean you won’t be able to watch Super Bowl LIV in Canada. Getting a DAZN subscription is probably your best choice. That’s because it has a 30-day free trial, which you can cancel after the event.

Streaming Super Bowl LIV in Australia for free

Free-to-air network Channel 7 is the #1 option for those in Australia. NFL fans that want to watch Super Bowl on their mobile device should use the 7plus app.

There are more options for watching Super Bowl 2020 in Australia. Kayo Sports, Foxtel, and ESPN will be also broadcasting the event. Once again, if you happen to be outside of the country, using NordVPN to get an Australian IP is your best bet.

Illegal Super Bowl 2020 live streams

There will be plenty of illegal Super Bowl 2020 streams live online when the match starts. While it’s possible to watch Super Bowl for free using this method, we strongly discourage that. Putting aside the whole legal context, links to such streams are filled with various malware that auto-installs itself onto your browser and computer after you click some suspicious button.

Not infecting your computer is hard because such illegal streams often add loads of banners that you have to close before starting to watch the Super Bowl 2020. And even if you get away from all of this, there’s no guarantee that the illegal Super Bowl LIV stream will not go offline at the worst possible time of the match, leaving you to scramble for an alternative source to watch the biggest NFL football match online.

Where will Super Bowl LIV take place?

Super Bowl LIV will take place at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, where the Dolphins play their home games. This is probably not the last Super Bowl game at the arena, especially since the stadium has already hosted five Super Bowls (XXIII, XXIX, XXXIII, XLI, and XLIV). It makes sense why it was such a popular pick as it can comfortably contain more than 66,000 people.

What is the Super Bowl 2020 kickoff time?

Super Bowl 2020 kickoff time has been set to 6:30 pm EST. This wasn’t a big surprise because Super Bowl LII and LIII also started at 6:30 pm EST.

Here’s how the Super Bowl LIV kickoff time looks like in different timezones:

  • Los Angeles (PST): 3:30 pm
  • Chicago (CST): 5:30 pm
  • New York (EST): 6:30 pm
  • London (BST): 11:30 pm
  • Paris (CET): 12:30 am, Sunday
  • Moscow (MSK): 1:30 am, Sunday
  • Tokyo (JST): 7:30 am, Sunday
  • Sydney (AET): 9:30 am, Sunday

Who will win Super Bowl 2020?

San Francisco 49ers seem to be the favorites to win the main trophy. On the other hand, the Chiefs are not that far behind among many bookies. Therefore, everyone should expect a close game and an event to remember.

About the Super Bowl

The Super Bowl is the greatest sports event in the US, and it’s been so for a long time. The first match dates back to January 15, 1967, when the American Football League and the National Football league came up with a merger agreement and playing Super Bowl between the winners of each league was the start. In 1970, the two leagues became one NFL as we know it today, with the Super Bowl match still played between the two conferences.

Both AFC and the NFC are quite balanced when it comes to winning the main trophy. The NFC teams have done this 27 times while the AFC champions have won 26 times. The two teams with the most wins in the history of the NFL are the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New England Patriots, both with six titles. The latter also holds the record for most appearances (11) and a never-before-seen four titles in six years.

The Super Bowl is not only about football

Super Bowl is known not only for the match between the two greatest football teams of the season. During the halftime, it becomes the stage for the most famous entertainment acts, such as Lady Gaga, Beyonce, or Justin Timberlake, still remembered because of his controversial Super Bowl 2004 performance with Janet Jackson.

This year, one of the most influential Latin performers in the United States, Jennifer Lopez, will take the center stage during the Super Bowl LIV halftime show, along with Shakira.

What’s more, this is usually the most-watched TV broadcast in the US, with seven Super Bowls being among the most-watched in the US history. As of now, the most-watched event was the Super Bowl in 2015, with 114.4 million viewers. It’s second only to the UEFA Champions League among the annual sports events.

Having this in mind, it’s no wonder many businesses aim at advertising their products during the Super Bowl commercial break. It’s estimated that a 30-second piece costs $5.6 million. For this reason, usually, only the best ads go there and later end up in the Cannes Lions awards, making the Super Bowl the most significant world-class scene for businesses, entertainers, and athletes.

    Can you use a VPN to watch BBC one from the US?

  2. justinthewizard

    Tried this and it worked like a charm! I wasn’t sure about VPNs at first, wasn’t sure they could really work, but since I was overseas during the Superbowl I decided to try it out. Worked like a charm. Too bad the Patriots won, but nothing’s perfect I guess haha. Thanks guys! Great advice!

  3. KL King

    So many tips and links! As an American, I don’t often think about how people everywhere enjoy our SuperBowl game–even if the rest of the year they prefer soccer or other sports. It’s great to live in an age when technology allows people in different countries to enjoy each others’ sports in real time.

  4. PanthersFan

    My own Carolina Panthers did not make it to the Superbowl, but it is good to know there are so many options for watching all over the world. Maybe next year for me!

  5. Kimberly Schimmel

    Thank you so much for putting all this information, from international times to different ways of watching, in one place. I know I would never have had time to find all this myself–wouldn’t even have known where to start looking! This is a treasure trove of useful info for international sports fans.

  6. Grace

    Honestly, I usually watch the Super Bowl for the halftime show and the commercials and I’m super disappointed this year in the performers. I think they usually try to go for something family-friendly but I don’t think that’s Travis Scott and how he’s going to perform with Maroon 5 I have no idea

    1. Karol Wojcik

      Hey Grace. I’m sorry to hear that, but it’s not the first time Super Bowl has made some odd decisions for the Halftime Show. I guess we’ll have to wait and see if this ends up in some controversy. And who knows, maybe it’ll turn out just OK 🙂

  7. Lauren

    Thanks for all these great options I had no idea that on my Roku I could watch the Super Bowl without even having a cable subscription and you gave me so many other options if that doesn’t work or I want to watch it on another device. This is the best news of the day!

    1. Karol Wojcik Author

      Hi Lauren, glad we could help 🙂

  8. FootballFanatic4Life

    Not everyone has ready access to the Super Bowl but you can be sure there are hundreds of millions (if not billions) of people who will be watching it or wanting to do so. The NFL is so heavy-handed when it comes to access that I’m glad to see options for people who want to watch it, but who might be handcuffed by the No Fun League.

  9. Lance

    Thanks for such a comprehensive guide on where I can stream the Super Bowl! This is a really thorough post. So helpful!

    1. Karol Wojcik Author

      Thanks, Lance! I’m glad you found this Super Bowl article useful. Sometimes it really is confusing which network and which device is the best to watch NFL. Gone are the days when you had one TV and one cable 🙂 But I’m happy they will continue doing play-by-play on the radio.
