Those looking for a way to watch the Super Bowl with a service for live TV include the best cable TV alternatives. Our top two picks here are Sling TV and Fubo TV, as each have Fire TV apps and offer unique differences.
Don't worry about spending a lot of cash, as you can avoid Sling's $35 monthly price and Fubo TV's $65 monthly price. This is because both services offer free trials, so you don't need to pay, as long as you can cancel in time (set a reminder!).
The even cheaper option is watching the Super Bowl on Peacock, where it's $5 per month. Why is Peacock so cheap? Well, it doesn't have a rewind button, which can be annoying for live events (just ask any WWE fan). Things also get more expensive, as the Super Bowl on Hulu with Live TV is $69 per month — but it does pack two notable streaming services. Both options are available for anyone looking to watch the Super Bowl on Roku.
Trying to figure out the Super Bowl 2022 in 4K? Well, sadly legit 4K Super Bowl live streams won't exist. You can watch NBC on YouTube TV, and it offers 4K for some events, but that's not here. The only people presenting the big game in 4K will be upscaling it from 1080p, and that's not really Ultra High-Def.
Here's everything you need to know to watch the Super Bowl on Fire TV.
Super Bowl on Fire TV: Which app is right for you?
Okay, we've got all the links to all of the top Fire TV apps:
Want to watch the Super Bowl on Sling TV? Then get started by adding the Sling TV Fire TV app (opens in new tab) remotely. Sling Blue has NBC in select markets (Chicago, Boston, Dallas, Ft. Worth, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Hartford, New Haven, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose, Washington DC and San Diego).
Sling Blue is $35 per month, but you don't need to have to pay that fee to watch Super Bowl LVI on Sling, because Sling TV has a 3-day free trial (opens in new tab).
Of course, you can also watch Fubo TV on your Fire TV, and the fuboTV Fire TV app (opens in new tab) is also available for remote-loading. Again, fubo TV is a bit more expensive at $65 per month, but it does offer more channels and a multi-watch mode for seeing more than one channel at once. There is also a 7-day free fubo TV trial (opens in new tab).
Fubo.TV (opens in new tab): One of the best streaming services with NBC, and the top pick for watching all of the NFL live streams, Fubo has all of the right network channels and the two cable channels you don't want to go without. Who needs cable? Not Fubo subscribers. It's got a 7-day free trial (opens in new tab) so you don't need to pay up front.
Why would you spend $5 more to get the Super Bowl on Hulu with Live TV? It includes Disney Plus and ESPN Plus (where UFC 271 is streaming). But just like Sling, you're going to want to check if Hulu has NBC for you. So when you sign up for Hulu (opens in new tab) click "VIEW CHANNELS IN YOUR AREA." Then, plug in your zip code, hit Submit and you should see if you get NBC.
Hulu (opens in new tab) also offers a huge library of classic and current TV shows and movies, as well as acclaimed originals like Handmaid's Tale and movie exclusives including Oscar winner Nomadland. Plus, it's got the entire FX catalog. Hulu with Live TV (opens in new tab) costs $69.99 per month.
Lastly, the Super Bowl is also on Peacock (opens in new tab), which doesn't have a free trial and doesn't let you rewind, but still costs so much less at $5 per month for Peacock Premium. Don't select the "ad-free" Peacock Premium Plus expecting it to cut out all the Super Bowl commercials. It only removes ads from movies and TV shows, not live events. Our Peacock review has all the details.
You can add Peacock to Fire TV here (opens in new tab).
In addition to the Super Bowl, Peacock (opens in new tab) also has WWE live streams, huge library of licensed content drawn from various brands. That includes shows like 30 Rock, The Voice, Battlestar Galactica, Law & Order: SVU and This Is Us.
