Fox Sports will use Super Bowl XLVIII as a showcase for its online and mobile authentication service for pay-TV subscribers, offering a free, one-day “preview” of Fox Sports Go during TV’s biggest event.
As previously reported by Variety, Fox will stream the Super Bowl — including the halftime show featuring Bruno Mars and Red Hot Chili Peppers — live from East Rutherford, N.J., on Feb. 2. This year’s NFL title game pits the Denver Broncos against the Seattle Seahawks.
The special preview of Fox Sports Go will allow all users in the U.S. to access content from 12 a.m. Eastern on Sunday, Feb. 2, until 3 a.m. Eastern on Monday, Feb. 3. The live stream of Super Bowl XLVIII will be available on iPads in the Fox Sports Go app and on desktops at FoxSportsGo.com, only within the United States. However, because of the NFL’s deal with Verizon Wireless, Fox does not have rights to stream the Super Bowl to smartphones; to watch the game on a phone, fans must to subscribe to the NFL Mobile from Verizon service.
