Super Bowl LI between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons is 6:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, February 5. With nearly one quarter of households in the United States living without cable and satellite reception and the number of “cord cutters” increasing, here are ways to stream the Super Bowl online:

FOX Sports GO app

The Super Bowl returns to FOX for the first time since 2014. The accompanying app (iOS, Android) and website will provide streams of the game on your phone, tablet, Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, Amazon Fire, Android TV and Xbox One. A TV subscription is usually needed to view content through this app, but isn’t necessary to view Super Bowl LI. That news will come as a relief to those people who really don’t want to scour Reddit for illegal links, but also don’t have access to a TV subscription.

NFL Mobile app

Verizon-only customers are able to stream the game via this app (iOS, Android). Sorry, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint customers.

NFL Game Pass

Don’t care who wins the game but still want to watch it? Utilize NFL Game Pass after midnight to view the game online. For the first time, fans in the United Kingdom can also watch the Super Bowl through Game Pass. Just don’t let your friends spoil the result before you get around to watching it. And don’t check social media.

BBC Sport iPlayer app (UK only)

For fans in the UK, watching the NFL takes a lot of dedication with the time difference. If you’re willing to stay up through the night and are looking for an alternative way to stream the big game, check out BBC Sport’s iPlayer app (iOS, Android) or website. Fans in other countries hoping to jump on the iPlayer app will be disappointed, you have to be in the UK to utilize it.

Sky Go app (UK only)

Prefer Sky to the BBC? Well, you can still watch the Super Bowl regardless of your broadcast preference. Check out the Sky Go app (iOS, Android) to see whether Matt Ryan and the Falcons win or Tom Brady and the Patriots hoist another Vince Lombardi Trophy. Unlike the BBC option, viewers need to have already signed up to a Sky subscription to view any programming via this app.

… And there’s always radio

You won’t be able to see the action but you can follow along with Sirius XM NFL Radio (channel 88), Westwood One (which will be simulcast on TSN Radio in Canada), WBZ-FM (Boston), WZGC (Atlanta), tunein, Entravision (Spanish) and BBC Radio 5 Live (UK). Check out this handy guide to finding which station is best for you in more than 170 countries and territories around the world.
