As the Super Bowl is approaching and will be hold on February 7, 2016 at California, people tend to find their best ways to enjoy the game. Here in the passage is the rundown on all the apps and gadgets you’ll need.
Super Streaming Sunday
If you’re like me and tend to stream as much of the action on your smartphone or tablet as you do on your TV these days, you are in serious luck this year. For the first time ever, you can watch every stunning pass and brutal collision right from the NBC Live Sports Extra App — from any computer, iOS, Android, or Windows tablet. For those wanting to watch on a smartphone, NFL Mobile from Verizon will stream the game. It’s 100% free. You don’t need a cable subscription like in years past. Oh, and it’s not just the game that will be streamed — all the commercials and a whopping 11 hours of content both before the game and afterwards will ensure a day filled with Bowl best. Oh, and if you’re worried about missing out on all the hilarious commercials, fear not, NBC has created a Tumblr page so you can watch them all there shortly after they air on TV.
HDTV Super Sales
But if you prefer the big screen — and your puny little boob tube just isn’t cutting it — you can score huge sales on some pretty awesome sets right about now. Walmart has a bunch of special rollbacks on big beautiful TVs from Vizio and Samsung — two of the best in the business — and others. At Amazon, we’re seeing nearly 50% off on brand new TVs up to 70 inches. That’s a savings of around $1,000 on some of the biggest and best TVs to catch the big game.
Must-See Super Bowl TV
Whatever you decide to watch with, be sure to check out some of the best in “other” entertainment around the Super Bowl:
The 2015 Puppy Bowl XI is back this year flanked by — get this — goat cheerleaders. This year’s event airs on Animal Planet from 3-5 p.m. EST and pits team Fluff against Ruff. This is just so ridiculously cute.
If it’s the commercials you crave, head over to the Hulu AdZone for leaked ads, teasers and 2015 commercials, as well as hundreds of memorable and historic ads from years past.
The fine folks at Bad Lip Reading have returned with a ROFL 2015 NFL mash-up. The popular YouTube series dubs ridiculous commentary into the mouths of unsuspecting players, ref’s, coaches and even fans. I went from chuckle to full-on crack up at “old sheepdog named Paco Sinbad.” Bring your Funyuns and get ready to howl.
