The highly-anticipated game is one of the most-watched events on television. However, with the advent of streaming platforms, many viewers have ditched conventional cable television. Here, we are explaining how you can watch the Super Bowl LVII without cable. Read on to find out.
How to Watch Super Bowl 2023 Without Cable?
Super Bowl LVII will take place on Sunday, February 12, 2023, at 3:30 PM PT / 6:30 PM ET. The game will be aired live on the Fox Network. If you do not have cable TV, you will be able to watch the game through a number of streaming platforms that offer live-streaming of local Fox affiliates.
The platforms where you can catch the game include YouTube TV. The platform offers a seven-day free trial, after which it is chargeable at $65 a month. There is also Hulu + Live TV, which comes at $70 a month after a seven-day free trial.
Fubo TV is another service offering live TV channels. The platform’s subscription starts at $70 a month after a seven-day trial period. Then there is DirecTV Stream, charging $75 monthly and offering a five-day free trial. A little cheaper alternative is Sling TV, which is billed at $40 a month following a seven-day trial period.
However, Sling TV offers Fox streaming only in a few regions, which include Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Detroit, Gainesville, Houston, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, St. Paul, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Francisco, Seattle, Tampa/St. Petersburg and Washington DC.
To stream the game, you will also need a streaming device along with the service. Apart from mobile phones, Amazon Fire Stick, Apple TV, and Roku can be used to watch streaming. Additionally, if you want to ditch both cable and streaming, Fox is also available through a TV antenna.
The Game will be Broadcasted in 4K Resolution
The Super Bowl 2023 will be available to stream in 4K resolution. As per Fox, the event will be shot in HDR and then converted to 4K, which means it won’t be recorded in 4K in the real sense but will provide better sharpness and vividness in comparison to the regular broadcast.
If you would be watching the game on cable, the resolution will depend on the provider as well. Several Cable TV providers, including Altice Optimum, Comcast Xfinity (Dolby Vision 4K HDR), DirecTV, Cox Contour TV, Dish Network, and Verizon FiOS, have confirmed that they would be supporting the 4K resolution.
Additionally, streaming platforms would also be charging a premium for 4K service. YouTube TV charges an extra $20 over its subscription price to support 4K, while for Fubo TV, the 4K package is included in the base price.
So get ready to witness the biggest sporting event of the year with your choice of streaming or cable platform, and stay tuned for more news and updates.
