Fox Sports has announced it will stream live all of its coverage from Super Bowl 48 next Sunday. The move is being characterized as the Fox network showcaing it’s online and mobile authenticating services.
Naturally, the free “preview” is not permanent, and subscribers to FOX’s online content will have to subscribe (i.e. pay). However, the most watched event in the United States every year isn’t a bad place to start for showcasing a new product.
And if you’re not particularly into the football game itself, the halftime show with Red Hot Chili Peppers and Bruno Mars will also be shown, including all of the commercials viewers goes crazy for every year.
The preview from FOX Go will allow all users to access content from midnight Saturday night to Sunday, Feb. 2, at 3AM ET on Monday, Feb. 3. The live stream will be available on iPads in the Fox Sports Go app and on desktops at FoxSportsGo.com. However, Fox does not have rights to stream the Super Bowl to smartphones; fans must subscribe to the NFL Mobile from Verizon service.
Of course, regardless of your viewing prowess, the Super Bowl will be on FOX coast-to-coast on Dish Network, starting Sunday at around 6PM. Joe Buck and Troy Aikman have the call.
