Watch Super Bowl on Android TV via FOX Sports
As a seasoned football connoisseur, the excitement for the 2023 Super Bowl must be palpable. And what’s a better way to stream it on Android TV than with the FOX Sports app? You can watch the game live on Fox’s official sports streaming app in up to 4K and with HDR – once you log in with your cable, satellite, or streaming TV provider.
The FOX Sports app doesn’t offer a standalone subscription, serving as a complimentary benefit for pay-TV subscribers. Therefore, you must have an active plan to stream the 2023 Super Bowl via the Android TV app. Even the most basic TV plan covers the FOX channel, but if you don’t have cable, you may sign in with an over-the-top live TV streaming plan. More on that later.
You can follow these steps to install and activate the FOX Sports app on your Android TV and tune into the championship game.

Watch Super Bowl 2023 on Android TV Without Cable or Satellite
If you’ve cut ties with cable or satellite TV and are seeking an affordable and cost-effective way to watch FOX’s broadcast of the much-anticipated Super Bowl on Android TV, look no further.
You’ll find the big game on six different live TV streaming platforms carrying the FOX channel in most markets, including Sling TV, FuboTV, YouTube TV, Hulu + Live TV, DirectTV Stream, and Vidgo. Here’s a quick rundown of all the options:
|OTT Provider||Recommended Plan (incl. FOX)||FOX Deportes||4K||Recommended Plan Benefits|
|Sling TV||Sling Blue||N/A||✕||35+ channels, DVR, up to three simultaneous streams|
|Latino Plan||✓||Over 130 channels, DVR, up to ten streams on the same network|
|YouTube TV||Base Plan
4K Plus Add-on
Spanish Plus Add-on
|✓||100+ networks, unlimited DVR, and up to three device streams shared across and six individual accounts|
|Hulu with Live TV||Hulu + Live TV||Español Add-on||✕||85+ channels, no limit on DVR recordings, access to Hulu on-demand, Disney+, and ESPN+|
|DirecTV Stream||Entertainment||Deportes Add-on||✕||Over 75 channels, unlimited devices on the network and cloud DVR|
|Vidgo||English Plus||Vidgo MAS||✕||110+ channel, on-demand, DVR|
If you have a compatible 4K Android TV device, your two best streaming TV options would be FuboTV and YouTube TV, as they offer the 2023 Super Bowl stream in UHD. FuboTV includes 4K streaming with their Elite and Premier plans, whereas YouTube TV demands extra for the 4K Plus add-on.
Both also provide a free trial for new users, which you can take advantage of to watch the game at no cost and cancel your subscription if you don’t want to continue. You’d still be entering your card details to start your trial, but you can cancel it anytime before the promotion runs out.
If you don’t get the option to sign up for free trials and are looking for the cheapest possible way to watch Super Bowl 2023 on your Android TV, consider the Blue plan from Sling TV, which carries around 40 channels, including FOX and NFL Network.
However, you must be in one of the DMAs where Sling TV serves the FOX channel. It includes Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Gainesville, Houston, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Franciso, Seattle, Tampa, and Washington.
It’s worth noting that all the above live TV providers offer native streaming apps for Android TV. For example, if you sign up for Hulu Live TV, all you have to do is install the Hulu app from the Play Store and log in with your account.
That said, you can also use your Hulu + Live TV (or any other streaming TV subscription) plan to activate the FOX Sports app and experience Super Bowl LVII from there.
Watch Super Bowl on Android TV via Chromecast
Do you always “cast” your preferred choice of media on your Android TV from your phone or tablet? Well, you can do the same for Super Bowl 2023 too!
Get the FOX Sports app on your device (or visit the website), sign in with your provider, and open the live stream. After that, tap the Cast icon and select your Chromecast-enabled Android TV device. Note your devices must be on the same home network for this to work.
The same applies to all the subscription-based live TV apps highlighted above. However, for the best streaming experience, your Android TV must have access to a high-speed internet connection (10 Mb/s or above) over Wi-Fi or Ethernet. For 4K, download speeds need to be a minimum of 25 Mb/s or faster.

On Which Android TV Devices Can I Watch Super Bowl 2023?
You can watch the 2023 Super Bowl on any Smart TV or streaming box running the official Android TV (or Google TV) operating system. We’ve already covered numerous guides on where and how to stream the big game, including the following:
- Chromecast with Google TV
- Hisense Android TV
- Philips Android TV
- Sony BRAVIA Android TV
- TCL Android TV
- Sharp & Toshiba Android TV
The point is that pretty much any device powered by Google’s Android TV OS can run the FOX Sports app and the other live TV streaming apps. They all have Chromecast built-in, so you should also be able to cast the Super Bowl stream. We can’t confirm the same for cheap, generic Android TV boxes running on a modified Android version.
Watch Super Bowl 2023 on Android TV Outside the US
In countries like Canada, the United Kingdom, and Australia, where NFL is still somewhat relevant amongst American football fans, the 2023 Super Bowl is actually quite simple to access. Canucks can opt for a DAZN subscription to follow along, whereas the Brits and Aussies can tune into the big game for free on ITVX and 7plus, respectively.
There’s only one minor drawback. Since the following streaming apps run their own adverts in between the game, streaming the Super Bowl outside the States will mean you won’t get to view the viral Super Bowl commercials many enjoy.
Non-US NFL fans looking for the complete experience may want to use a VPN (Virtual Private Network) app to mask their real location and sign up for one of the several American live TV streaming apps (see above) that would otherwise be geo-blocked in their region.
However, you’ll also have to go through the hassle of creating and signing in with a US-based Google account on your Android TV since neither FOX Sports nor Hulu, Sling, or YouTube TV is available on the Play Store outside of the US. Or, you can go with sideloading the APKs if you know how.
This guide aims to provide helpful information on how to watch Super Bowl on Android TV. By reviewing the options carefully, you can choose a suitable and cost-effective streaming app that meets your requirements.
To ensure an uninterrupted viewing experience, it’s advisable to set everything up ahead of the big day, so you can sit back and enjoy the game and halftime show without worrying about missing a single moment.
