Super Bowl - on line coverage

Watching Super Bowl 50 Online Easier Than Ever?

Quote: "If you're a cord cutter planning to watch Super Bowl 50 this weekend, your options have improved over last year. This is the fourth year that CBS will stream the big game online, but the company this year says it has notably ramped up the number of devices users can use to do so. The company will stream the game via CBSSports.com, but Verizon Wireless subscribers can also watch the game via Verizon's NFL Mobile app."

And this is an amazing Quote: "We find that people are interested in having the game wherever they want it and at any time. This gives viewers more options, and they are able to watch on any device they want wherever they are," said Jeffrey Gerttula, senior vice president and general manager of CBS Sports Digital. "The demand is there and consumers are expecting more."

Maybe I am wrong, but wonder if this works on Linux?

I have been watching football online all this season with sites like First Row Sports and VIP sports all using Linux. I don't see why it would be any difference with the Super Bowl?

What is this "soup bowl" you Americans speak of? Is it like the World Cup?

It is BUT, don't forget, "World" as in Champion, Series or any other sporting context for our American friends only refers to that "world" enclosed within the GREAT WALL OF TRUMP!!!!

:happy: :happy:

Looking forward to the game, shame the Packers didn't make it. I'm predicting a high scoring affair?

Forgive me if I'm wrong, but I think those sites aggregate pirated live sports streams. There would be a big difference between those and an official stream that may attempt to enforce DRM or use some proprietary technology such as NBC did with Olympic coverage and Silverlight years ago.

Both teams have good defenses. So scoring may be lower than some anticipate. Of course both quarterbacks are very good at putting points on the board. I just don't want to watch a runaway.

You're right. They are. But they do work when all else fails. Being an Indiana University fan I have to resort to them when our games are relegated to the third tier channel by BTN or ESPN and aren't offered on my standard Comcast service. Happens more often with football than basketball. IU's football is historically bad (but on the rise), while the basketball program is one of the better ones nationally. That's reflected in the coverage they receive.

The good news is that with Linux, I don't have to worry about the cesspool of malware and spyware and hijackers that using those sites expose one to. After the game, I close the browser, delete the cache, and I'm good to go.

I've been a Denver fan for a loong time, so I'm excited. I've got a feeling (and a hope) that this is going to be a good game. Two excellent defenses, two excellent quarterbacks, neither team is prissy or thuggish. So, my fingers are crossed, and I'll be cheering on the Broncos. I might be a little overboard, though...my wife is going to her sister's so she can root for my step-son's team...the Panthers...
