How to watch Super Bowl 51 on your iPad

Share This:


The most watched sporting event of the year and popular American Tradition–the Super Bowl is back again tomorrow as the Atlanta Falcons get set to take on the New England Patriots.  This is the 51st version of the contest which brings the official branding back to being represented by roman numerals.   The use of LI looks pretty awkward, and is not immediately recognizable by many, but tradition is tradition, no matter how out of place it may seem at times.  If you’re not spending the evening at a sports bar or at a friends house and you’re actively looking for an alternative way to watch the Super Bowl, we’re here to help.  This year the Super Bowl will be aired on FOX.  In addition to the main event FOX will also air all the pre-game build-up and analysis starting at 1:50 pm EST.

To watch/stream the Super Bowl live on your iPad you have a couple of options.  FOX will provide a live-stream for anyone wanting to watch the game, even if you don’t have a cable or satellite subscription.  To take advantage of this opportunity you simply need to download the Fox Sports Go app from the App Store on your iPad or open your favorite browser and point it to

When you launch the app you are greeted with a splash screen that has all the Super Bowl events running across the top of the screen in the Featured area.  Clicking on any one of them prior to the start of the broadcast will elicit to two options.  You can either set a reminder for when the event will start, or you can share the event via your favorite sharing tool on your device.


Lastly, if you’re like me and lucky enough to live in one of the following markets you can also watch a live-stream of the Super Bowl on DirecTV Now.
