Eighteen weeks of NFL seasonal games later, Super Sunday is nearly upon us, and it’s your time to prep everything for game night. You’ve got your snacks and cold beverage ready, but what about the most vital part? Keep reading to learn how and where to watch Super Bowl on Philips Smart TV.
The race for the spot in the Super Bowl has been active all season, with only two of the best teams qualifying for the ultimate NFL championship event, each from the American and National Football Conferences, respectively.
Like the previous years, there’s supposed to be plenty of high-stakes drama and unpredictable plays – and with the undisputed Queen of Pop, Rihanna, headlining this year’s halftime show after a long period of hiatus, plenty of pop-heads are expected to tune in for the musical performance.
Watch Super Bowl on Philips Smart TV
If you use a cable or satellite set-top box with your Philips Smart TV, you can watch the Sunday night championship game on FOX, or FOX Deportes for Spanish commentary. These two essential channels come with even the most entry-level TV packages, so you probably won’t have to upgrade.
Even better is the fact that Fox is to air Super Bowl LVII on all their free-to-air affiliate stations across the nation. Assuming you reside in an area with particularly good broadcast reception, you’d be able to use an indoor or external digital antenna with your Philips Smart TV and scan for free OTA channels. With some luck and re-tuning, you should be able to catch FOX’s 2023 Super Bowl on Philips TV for free.
But if you wish to watch over the internet, there are plenty of options for you. One is the FOX Sports app, from which you can stream the annual football event in up to 4K; once you sign in with your traditional cable or satellite provider credentials. It’s available for download on the Play Store for Android and Google TVs and the Roku Channel Store for Roku TVs.
Those who don’t pay for a cable or satellite subscription have no reason to worry, thanks to streaming television services like DirecTV Stream, fuboTV, Sling, YouTube TV, etc. They offer contract-free subscription packages (similar to the likes of Netflix, Disney+, and Peacock) bundling the linear channels you typically watch on cable, including FOX. Here are some of the providers and their plans you might be interested in:
With its 130+ channels, 1000-hour cloud recording storage, and allowance for up to ten simultaneous screens, you can sign up for a limited free trial for fuboTV’s Pro plan and stream the Super Bowl for free on your Philips Smart TV. Or, if you want to watch the football event in Spanish, go for the cheaper Latino plan.
If you have a compatible Ultra HD model, you may opt for the costlier Elite or Premier monthly plan and watch the game in a crystal-clear 4K resolution. The following plans include 200+ channels, including premium entertainment and sports networks.
Sling TV’s monthly Sling Blue plan is possibly the cheapest option for watching Super Bowl LVII on Philips Android and Roku-powered Smart TVs. Its lineup of 41 channels carries FOX, but only in a handful of markets. That’s why we recommend visiting Sling’s official site and verifying which channels are available in your ZIP code before purchasing the subscription.
Besides 41 channels, the Blue plan (which you can currently get at half the price for the first month) allows users to record live TV for up to 50 hours and stream simultaneously on three devices. If you’re looking for more NFL coverage than just your Super Bowl fix, consider checking out the Sling Orange + Blue package.
Hulu + Live TV
You may know Hulu for its sizable on-demand catalog replete with originals, but did you know they also provide live TV channels?
The Hulu (With Ads) + Live TV bundle deserves a spot on this list not only for its inclusion of FOX and 85+ top entertainment, sports, and news channels but also for extra benefits, such as unlimited DVR space and complimentary access to Hulu, Disney+, and ESPN+ streaming libraries. And that too at the same price as the base plans offered by its competitors.
If you wish to watch FOX Deportes’ live Spanish coverage of the Super Bowl game, you must add the Español Add-on to the subscription bundle.
Vidgo’s English Plus package carries 110+ live channels (FOX and FOX Deportes included) and is overall one of the best streaming television plans for sports coverage. It also provides 20 hours of free DVR for the first three months of subscription and has a small library of on-demand programming.
Once again, the Vidgo Mas package would be your go-to option on the live TV platform for the best of Latino sports, entertainment, and news coverage, including Super Bowl LVII on FOX Deportes.
Like fuboTV, YouTube’s own full-fledged cable replacement service lets users stream select channels and broadcasts in 4K – even FOX’s airing of the 2023 Super Bowl. All you have to get is the 4K Plus add-on on top of the Base Plan (free trial available), featuring 100+ US channels and unlimited cloud storage for DVR. The following add-on also removes the limit on multi-device streams on the same home network.
Note: The best thing about YouTube TV and all the other live TV services highlighted above is you can stream Super Bowl LVII on FOX directly from their official apps or use your respective login details to sign in and watch via the FOX Sports app.
