Fox playoff games wont get the same treatment
Football fans that won't be near a TV when the Super Bowl airs have something to be thankful for. Fox has announced that it will live stream the Super Bowl for free on the web reports Variety. That means you will be able to watch the big game from anywhere you can get a web connection and power for your computer.
The Super Bowl will be live streamed on February 2 and the 2014 game will mark the third year it has been streamed for free. Oddly, while Fox is letting anyone watch the Super Bowl for free, it is hiding certain post season games in the playoffs behind a pay wall.
Some of the post season games will only be available on the web to people that subscribe to cable TV companies that are participating. Some of those participating cable providers include Comcast. AT&T U-verse, and Cablevision Systems. The streaming coverage of the game will begin at 6:30 pm Eastern on Sunday February 2.
Football fans will be able to see streaming coverage of the AFC playoffs on CBSsports.com at no cost. CBS will be offering key playoff games free online for the first time ever.
