You Can Stream The Super Bowl Using Fire TV & CBS Sports App

February 3, 2016 - Written By Justin Diaz

Every year for tons of sports fans, the culmination of American Football leads up to the Super Bowl which is always a big to-do with loads of excitement and more energy from the fans then anyone could imagine. It’s one of the biggest sports events in the country, and usually to watch it you’d have to have a subscription to cable television or find your way to a sports bar or restaurant that may be playing the game on their own screens. While these are easy enough in itself to do if you really want to see the game, not everyone wants cable TV, nor do they want to travel to some establishment just to see every play.

Amazon and CBS are giving fans another alternative this year. Through Amazon’s Fire TV devices and with the use of the CBS Sports app, users can stream Super Bowl 50 and watch right from the comfort of their own couch. This allows users to stay comfortable at home and watch as if they had a cable TV subscription but without a hefty cost. All users have to do is simply download the app to their Fire TV device, tap watch the Super Bowl, and all of the best plays and every second of excitement is right in front of you.

Aside from streaming Super Bowl 50 to your TV through a Fire TV device, Amazon is giving users more ways to enjoy the big game day by suggesting multiple apps to help them stay entertained or prepare for the event. For example, users can download and install the Food Network application to help them prepare the snacks and meals for during the game, and through use of the Animal Planet app users could stream and watch the Puppy Bowl. Other apps like Spotify, Prime Music or Pandora are suggested to liven up the party if you have people over, or even if you don’t, prior to the game starting, and once everything is over users can open up the YouTube app and stream all of the best commercials that played during the Super Bowl ad spots, which anyone who has ever watched the Super Bowl before will know are usually pretty entertaining, if not a little weird. If you don’t have cable, and you still want to stay home to watch the game, a Fire TV device and the CBS Sports app looks to be a solution.
