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 FOXSports.com, 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:
The fastest and most secure VPN on the market, NordVPN boasts a network containing 5000+ servers in 59 countries. If you don’t like it, use their 30-day money-back guarantee after the game is done.
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.
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 TVPlayer.com, 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.

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

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.
