Updated on 02.01.2019
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 2019 live stream online, even if you’re outside the US on February 3, 2019 (kickoff time is at 6:30 pm EST).
It’s now known that the Rams will be battling for the main trophy against the Patriots. This was decided last Sunday, with the Patriots visiting the Chiefs in the AFC (American Football Conference) and winning 37:31 in OT, while the Rams outgunned the Saints after a controversial non-call by the referee in the NFC (National Football Conference) finals. The winners of each conference will face each other in the battle for the NFL’s (National Football League) main prize – the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
Where will Super Bowl LIII take place?
Super Bowl LIII will take place at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, where the Falcons play their home games. This will be the first and probably not last Super Bowl game at the newly opened Mercedes-Benz arena, especially since there have been two Super Bowls in Atlanta already.
While the stadium previously held up to 71,000 fans, it was freshly renovated in expansion attempts and now can comfortably contain more than 80,000 people. It even gets interesting – unlike in most events, weather should not pose a challenge since everything will be under a roof – how fun is that? What’s more, just like a sleek convertible, the roof is retractable. It should be fun enjoying some quality football under such serene conditions.
What is the Super Bowl 2019 kickoff time?
Super Bowl 2019 kickoff time has been set to 6:30 pm EST. This wasn’t a big surprise because Super Bowl LII and LI also started at 6:30 pm EST.
Here’s how the Super Bowl LIII 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 2019?
It’s a bit too early to answer the question who will win the Super Bowl 2019 because we have just learned the two teams which play in it. It takes one injury to change the whole landscape of the upcoming battle.
Before the Conference Finals, according to the NFL’s official website, the New Orleans Saints had the highest chance of winning the Super Bowl 2019 at 29%, followed closely by the Kansas City Chiefs at 28%. As we see, both teams didn’t make it. Third were the Los Angeles Rams, holding a 22% chance, with the New England Patriots stepping on their toes with 21%. And now we will see these the latter two squads in Atlanta, on February 3.
How to watch Super Bowl 2019 live online?
The Finals between the Rams and the Patriots will be broadcasted by CBS network this year, which will also stream Super Bowl 2019 live online via CBS All Access, CBSSports.com, and the CBS app. Luckily, it will not require a cable subscription, so if you’re interested in Super Bowl LIII only, consider yourself lucky because you’ve just saved a sum of money.
But before you jump for joy, please visit the CBS website first to check if your region will not be experiencing a blackout. If it will, chances are you can avoid this by using a VPN (Virtual Private Network), which we’ll discuss in detail a bit later.
How to stream Super Bowl 2019 live via CBS?
CBS will let you stream Super Bowl 2019 live on almost any device. You will be able to watch the biggest sports event in the US on your desktop, phone, tablet, and multiple TV devices, such as Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Samsung Smart TV, Vizio Smart TV, and Chromecast. In addition to that, streaming Super Bowl via Play Station 4 or Xbox One is possible. Smart home devices, such as Amazon Alexa and Google Home, are also supported.
CBS All Access pricing and plans: how much does it cost to watch Super Bowl 2019 live?
We’re putting the CBS All Access as the first one because it’s the cheapest of all Super Bowl 2019 streaming options if we do not include various free trials or money-back guarantees of different services.
The price of the basic CBS All Access package is $5.99/month only. The commercial-free option is also available at a price of $9.99.
There’s also a 25% discount for students taking Limited Commercial Plans, making it less than $4.5/month.
You can shave 15% off each plan by taking the annual subscription. That’d be $59.99/year or $99.99/year, respectively.
There are two main payment options – credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discovery, American Express) and PayPal. Paying for CBS All Access is also possible by redeeming gift cards from Barnes & Noble, Best Buy, CVS, GameStop, Meijer, Speedway, and Walmart. When registering, the gift card can be used for the monthly plan. Later, you can upgrade to the annual plan either by paying or using the gift cards.
Please be aware of the possible state taxes added to the base price of both plans. Furthermore, Live TV, including NFL events, might be available in selected markets only.
How to watch Super Bowl 2019 online free?
You can watch Super Bowl 2019 online free by taking a free trial of CBS All Access for seven days. Don’t forget that you can use it only once. Therefore, you won’t be able to pull this off if CBS will also broadcast Super Bowl 2020.
When signing up for the CBS All Access free trial, you will need to enter your full name, email, zip code, and payment info. Here you can select between credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discovery, American Express) and PayPal. Unfortunately, for this you will need a US account as using a gift card for a free trial is not possible.
Streaming will also be available in the US only, including Alaska and Hawaii, and excluding Puerto Rico and the North Mariana Islands.
Streaming will also be available in the US only, including Alaska and Hawaii, and excluding Puerto Rico and the North Mariana Islands. The last one is less of a problem if you use a VPN (more on that in the next section). The Knowledge Base says that “CBS All Access will be available in Canada in the first half of 2018,” which is not that encouraging to read in 2019.
Last but not least, don’t forget to cancel your CBS All Access subscription before it ends. Otherwise, you’ll be charged a monthly price for the selected plan.
How to watch Super Bowl on CBS All Access outside the US
Chances are you’re a happy owner of the CBS All Access service now. You will not want to miss Super Bowl 2019, no matter what, even if you’re abroad at the kickoff. That’s a bit tricky because as you already know, the service is available in the US territory only. Such geo-blocking issues can be solved with the help of a VPN. It can spoof your geo-location by hiding your true IP address and connecting you to a VPN server in your desired location – which is the US in this case.
You should look for the fastest VPN that can deliver you at least the 5 Mbps needed for an HD stream, or at least 1.5 Mbps as recommended by CBS itself.
Now that you know the method of accessing Super Bowl stream live outside the US, it’s high time you choose the one service that would suit your needs. In this case, you should look for the fastest VPN that can deliver you at least the 5 Mbps needed for an HD stream, or at least 1.5 Mbps as recommended by CBS itself. Security is also important because you don’t want to be caught streaming Super Bowl from a location where CBS doesn’t allow that. This would probably end in a disconnection and you waiting for next year’s Super Bowl.
While there are plenty of free VPNs, we do not recommend choosing one for streaming the biggest sports event you’ve been waiting all year. While some of the free VPNs are quite OK, they cannot be compared to the reliability that proper top quality services such as ExpressVPN or NordVPN give.
Looking for a VPN service recommendation? VPNpro.com advises you to check out this:
What’s more, just like CBS All Access, most paid VPNs have a money-back guarantee, some of which can be up to 45 days, as in the case of CyberGhost. Some of them also have free trials, where no payment details will be required to activate your account. The aforementioned NordVPN gives you a total of seven days free trial, enough to play around and see if the speed is good enough to stream Super Bowl from your location outside the US.
Fun fact: if you’re a client of Hulu and have the plan with Live TV, you can log in to the CBS app or website using Hulu credentials without any extra setup or payments.
How to watch NFL Super Bowl 2019 with the NFL Game Pass?
This is the option for non-US access to the Super Bowl 2019 stream in Europe if there’s no dedicated broadcaster in a specific country, or if you don’t like the broadcaster for some reason, which could be the price it’s asking for the stream. Countries outside Europe are not eligible for the NFL Game Pass and should look to their local broadcasters.
With the NFL Game Pass, you will get access to the all season’s videos, the upcoming conference finals as well as the main event.
Game Pass prices differ across countries (EU will pay $32.99 and UK only $25.99).
Some football fans outside the US might feel inclined to purchase right away, but the thing is that the prices differ across countries. For example, while Germany and most of the EU has the price set at €28.99 ($32.99), UK residents are charged only £19.99 ($25.99).
But what to do if you’re in Germany and cannot see the UK price? To purchase the cheapest NFL Game Pass to stream the Super Bowl 2019, you will need a VPN (Virtual Private Network) to spoof your location and make the NFL website think that you’re connecting from the UK.
Did you know you can save on NFL Game Pass with the help of a VPN?
NFL Game Pass non-European price list
Outside the EU, there’s a bigger range in NFL Game Pass price variation.
Here is the list of prices in different currencies as per the NFL Game Pass website. As you can see, the prices obviously depend on the exchange currency rates (all prices are in US dollars):
- In Canadian dollars, it’s equal to $41.50
- In US dollars, it’s $44.99
- In Mexican peso, it’s $42
- In euros, it’s $39.80
- In Australian dollars, it’s $39.50
- In British pounds, it’s $45
- In Brazilian real, it’s $41.80
- In South Korean won, it’s $40.40
- In Swedish krona, it’s $40.60
- In Chinese yuan, it’s $39.80
- In Japanese yen, it’s $40.9
- In Danish krone, it’s $39.70
- In Norwegian krone, it’s $38.60
If you choose a non-European country whose currency is not on the list above, most likely you will be offered to pay in euros, which is not that bad.
As you can see from this list, currency-wise, it’s cheapest to pay with Norwegian Krones for the Super Bowl stream, the next option being the Australian dollars. The differences are not that big, but compared with the highest-priced US and UK streams, you can save more than $6. That is if you can avoid the currency exchange taxes when paying.
Payment can be made with Visa, MasterCard, American Express or PayPal.
How to watch Super Bowl 2019 online live on YouTube

Unfortunately, the channel packages of Sling TV do not contain CBS or CBS Sports.

How to stream Super Bowl 2019 live on Verizon Wireless (mobile-only)
This is a good way to stream Super Bowl 53 if you’re a Verizon’s client on-the-go that will probably not be able to sit and watch Super Bowl 2019 on a big screen. That is because this free way to watch the biggest football match is for mobile devices only.

How to watch Super Bowl 2019 live online on PlayStation Vue
Streaming Super Bowl 2019 online on PlayStation Vue is worthwhile only if you have it already (we mean Vue, not the PlayStation), and if you’re a Hulu client who has just discovered that Live TV doesn’t support PlayStation. Why? Because the price is $49.99/month and there are cheaper and more convenient options to stream Super Bowl 2019 live online.
There are cheaper and more convenient options to stream Super Bowl 2019 live online.
Although if you’re fast enough, you can still grab the deal for $29.99/month until January 20th.
If you’re not planning to hold on to your PlayStation Vue subscription, its 5-day free trial should be enough to get the Core plan that includes access to CBSSports.com, which will be streaming Super Bowl 2019 online.
How to stream Super Bowl 2019 live on Kodi live
This will probably be possible, but Kodi itself is just a media player, so you will probably need help from the community to figure out the best way of streaming Super Bowl in your location. Be aware that some of the streams offered in Kodi are not necessarily legal, even though the add-on enabling them is.
CBS Sports has not included streaming via Kodi as an option.
CBS Sports has not included streaming via Kodi as an option; therefore, if you see a CBS logo in the corner of your screen when streaming Super Bowl 2019 live online, it means you’re probably breaking the law.

The only exception is the United Kingdom and its BBC One channel because it allows you to stream Super Bowl 2019 online for free if you’re in the UK. And even if you aren’t, a VPN can help you out to change your geolocation. Here’s how to pull this off.
Watching Super Bowl 2019 live online on BBC One via TVPlayer.com (UK)
TVPlayer.com is a great option for football fans in the UK and the rest of Europe because it has a one-month free trial of its Premium plan that includes the BBC One channel set to broadcast the Super Bowl LIII in the UK.
If you’re not in the UK, you will need a VPN to connect to a UK server before using TVPlayer.com to stream Super Bowl 2019.

Illegal Super Bowl 2019 live streams
There will be plenty of illegal Super Bowl 2019 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 2019. And even if you get away from all of this, there’s no guarantee that the illegal Super Bowl LIII 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.
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 25 times. The team with the most wins in the history of the NFL is the Pittsburgh Steelers with six titles, the closest rivals being the San Francisco 49ers, the Dallas Cowboys, and the New England Patriots with five wins each. The last also holds the record for most appearances (10) and a never-before-seen four titles in six years. It also has a chance of adding another Vince Lombardi trophy to their collection if they manage to bet the Los Angeles Rams in the Super Bowl LIII.
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, three-time Grammy Award-winning band Maroon 5 will take the center stage during the Super Bowl LIII halftime show, along with rappers Big Boi (Outkast) and Grammy-nominated Travis Scott.
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.
This year Amazon is also taking an opportunity to extend their user-base by offering exclusive 24-hour access to the first episode of its series Hanna, an upcoming adaptation of the 2011 movie with Saoirse Ronan, which is already available on Amazon Prime. If you are not turning off the commercials, one dedicated to the new series will be aired after the third quarter.
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 around $5 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.
