Celebrating its 51st year, the Super Bowl will head to the Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on February 4th, 2018. Deciding the champions of the 2017/18 NFL season, the New England Patriots take on the Atlanta Falcons in a game sure to keep fans hooked.
With NBC securing the exclusive television rights, subscribers to the American cable TV service will have no difficulties catching the game. But fear not, if you live outside the US and don’t have a subscription to NBC, it’s still easy to watch NFL Super Bowl 52 action online. And it doesn’t matter where you live the UK, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Germany, Australia, or Spain!
However, to watch the Super Bowl LII live stream online from abroad, you’ll first need to get signed up to a VPN.
What Is A VPN And How Do I Get One?
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a service which allows you to browse the internet as if you were in a different a different country. For this article that different country is the USA, as that is where the Super Bowl is based.
However, for context, say, for example, you live in France and want to watch content which is restricted to Americans. Using a VPN will allow you to gain access a geo-locked content from the US. As the Super Bowl is being streamed exclusively on www.nbc.com, a VPN will be essential if you are planning to watch the game outside of the US.
As there are many VPN providers available, I suggest that you take a look at my reviews here. Or choose from one of the trusted pre-selected ones below.
What Devices can I use a VPN on?
Each of the VPNs I’ve listed above is compatible with most devices, as are those I have been reviewing. So you’ll be able to watch NFL Super Bowl online whether you’re using a laptop, tablet, or even a mobile phone.
However, if you need some detail to be sure, supported devices include: Windows PC, Linux, mac OS computers, iOS iPhone, iPad and Android smartphones and tablets, Amazon Fire Stick, Chromecast, Roku, Apple TV, Android TV, Smart TV’s and also gaming consoles PS4, Xbox One.
How Do I Use A VPN To Watch The Super Bowl Live?
Once you are running a VPN on your preferred device, and have selected America as your location, you will need to over to www.nbc.com to sign up for one of their special Super Bowl packages.
Reasonably priced, each of the packages allows viewers to enjoy coverage of the event as well as expert analysis at halftime. By doing this, you will be able to watch live Super Bowl coverage as though you were in America yourself.
Although, if you prefer not to pay to watch the game, there are free alternatives, but do not use them without a VPN for your own security and Ad blocker.
