Whether Beer Run or Bathroom Break, Keep Yourself Superbowl Covered

By Ryan Nakashima

LOS ANGELES -- Whether you're on a beer run, a bathroom break or just can't find a good seat at a packed party, there will be ways to keep tabs on the upcoming Super Bowl.

Just to make sure you're covered, let's examine each scenario so you don't miss a second of the action. You might need a credit card. But what's a few more bucks since you just bought that six-pack of beer?

Depending on your setup there's a different playbook. Like Peyton Manning, sometimes you have to call an audible and change plans quickly. But preparation is everything.

Ready, set, hut hut!

BEER RUN

Before you get off the couch, grab your smartphone or tablet.

FIRST LOOK: If you are one of those power tablet users with a cellular data plan, you're in luck. You can download the Fox Sports Go app and watch a live stream of the game and halftime show for free. Broadcaster Fox, which will host Super Bowl XLVIII on Feb. 2, will for the first time not require you to prove you are a pay TV subscriber to access the game through the tablet app. The promotion is only for the Super Bowl. Most of the time, proof of a pay TV package is required.

This is the best option for full video of the game, other than your regular TV, which will have the Super Bowl on the free-to-air Fox channel with hosts Joe Buck and Troy Aikman.

SECOND LOOK: If you're a Verizon customer, you're also in luck. You can download the NFL Mobile app and pay $5 a month to get live video streams of every Monday night, Thursday night and Sunday night game. For the last two years, the app has also carried the Super Bowl and the halftime show.

If you're outside of Wi-Fi coverage, reception may be spotty for the first two options.

CHECK DOWN: SiriusXM customers can download the mobile app and listen to live coverage of the game on channel SiriusXM NFL Radio as long as they're paying the extra $3.50 per month for Internet access. If you're not a customer yet, you'll need to get at least a Sirius Select package for $14.49 per month plus $3.50 a month for Internet access. This requires that you have the satellite radio hardware.
