How to watch the Super Bowl without Cable (FREE Live Streaming online!)

Wondering how to watch the Super Bowl without cable?   We found the answer!

To save money last year, we began using a Hulu/Netflix combo that serves most of our tv needs – and we thought a quick trip to Walmart to buy a satellite would solve our Super Bowl problem.  Unfortunately, for some reason we still can’t get NBC.

I was starting to mentally run through a list of all my friends who wouldn’t mind hosting us (and 4 extra kids) for their Superbowl hangout, when my smart hubby went searching for answers.  He found out how to watch the Super Bowl online using NBC’s free live stream – and will be setting it to connect to our television so we can watch it in the comfort of our living room.

Just head over here to watch the live stream – or download the app here. The only problem is you are not going to have all the Super Bowl commercials that are usually pretty fun – since the live stream has a different set of ads (and probably the same ones over and over) but still.  It’s free.

To watch it on other devices – mainly your television:

You can watch the Super Bowl on your big screen (instead of hunching over your laptop or phone) if you have any of the following.

  • Amazon Fire TV or Fire Stick
  • Chromecast
  • Apple TV
  • Roku
  • Or just a laptop with internet!

Head over to TechHive for more details about exactly how to do that ;)

The Sunday paper is the main source for coupons.  Each Sunday newspaper has a couple coupon inserts inside.  If you glance through these before you buy it, and like what you see ( are there several coupons for things you buy often?) go ahead and get 4 or 5 newspapers. (More on that later)
