Watching the Super Bowl from Abroad
The Super Bowl is arguably the most anticipated annual sporting event in the United States and is viewed by more than 75% of the country when it airs. But what if you find yourself abroad and still want to watch along with your fellow countrymen? Here’s all you need to know about streaming Super Bowl LV from afar.

1. Which Teams Are Playing In Super Bowl LV

CBS will be hosting Super Bowl LV, which will see the Tampa Bay Buccaneers taking on the Kansas City Chiefs. Due to COVID-19, the game will have limited in-person attendance, to say nothing of the bars, restaurants, and other venues where fans usually gather to watch the big game. So expect even more people trying to stream than usual.  

Although CBS will stream the action live on its website and the CBS Sports App to those in the United States, it geo-restricts its content almost everywhere else. Those outside of the US will need a special tool like a top VPN service to watch it through the app or other sources.

2. When Is Super Bowl LV?

The 55th Super Bowl will be played on Sunday, February 7th, 2021. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 pm ET/3:30 PT at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. If you’re based in Europe, kickoff will be around 11:30am. If you don’t want to have to stay up that late (or even later, depending on your time zone), then you can always catch up on the commercials, wardrobe malfunctions and other mishaps the following day.

3. How to Watch the Super Bowl Online Free

A VPN can mask your actual location, allowing you to overcome geo-restrictions. It can also protect your online data from cybercriminals. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Choose a VPN with fast speeds and a good number of servers in the US or the UK, where the game will be broadcast. 
  • Download and install the VPN’s app.
  • Once you’ve entered your account details, connect to a server in the US or UK. 
  • Watch the game; eat some snacks; have a good time.

Note: While there are multiple outlets you can use to stream the match, CBS remains the official site streaming the game live. 

4. How to Stream the Super Bowl in the UK for Free

Super Bowl LV will be streamed live on BBC One and the BBC iPlayer for free. Live pre-game coverage starts at 23:00 GMT on BBC Two and will switch over to BBC One at 23:30 for kickoff. 

You’ll also have other options to access the game in the UK, including via Sky Sports. If you have an active Sky subscription, then you can also access the game via the Sky Go app. If you don’t have either of the 2 services, then you can still sign up for TVPlayer and watch the match live without spending a penny.

If you are trying to watch a UK stream of the Super Bowl from another country, then you will need to use a VPN. 

5. How to Watch the Super Bowl in Canada

Those in Canada can watch the game via CTV/TSN. Those outside of Canada can watch its stream by downloading the CTV Go app, and using a VPN. Make sure that the VPN you use has enough servers in Canada to stream effectively, as Hotspot Shield does. 

If you don’t have cable TV, then consider getting DAZN, a service whose subscription has a no-fuss 30-day money-back guarantee. You could, for instance, buy a package and cancel it later after you’re done streaming the Super Bowl and you don’t like what else it has to offer.

6. How to Live Stream the Super Bowl in Australia

Those in Australia can catch the live action on the free-to-air Channel 7 network. The event will kick off at around 10:30am EST on Monday, February 8, 2021. Another option would be to watch via a VPN that’s tailored for streaming.
