Super Bowl 2020 live stream: how to watch the football online for free and without commercials
With only a few hours left until Super Bowl LIV kick-off time and the chance to see the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs go for the rings, we’re really struggling to predict who will come out on top. But what we can tell you is all you need to know to get a Super Bowl 2020 live stream – including all the free options, no matter where in the world you are (or with a VPN), and even without having to sit through those annoying commercial breaks!
Where and when is Super Bowl LIV?
This year’s Super Bowl between Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers will be held at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.
Kick-off time is set for 6.30pm ET (3.30pm PT, 11.30pm GMT, 12.30pm CET, 10.30am AEDT Monday morning)
Between the 49ers’ stellar defensive tackles and the Chiefs’ incredible offense, you can see why we’re finding it so hard to call this year’s big one.
The 49ers come in to Super Bowl LIV having convincingly beaten the Packers 37-20 in their conference final. Not only was their defensive tackle impressive but they also managed to run the ball 42 times for 285 yards throughout the game. That sounds like Super Bowl-winning kind of form! While, the Chiefs managed to eliminate the plucky Titans, highlighted by Patrick Mahomes’s incredible 27-yard touchdown.
And if you’re equally looking forward to the entertainment part of the Super Bowl (we don’t blame you) you definitely should be! Shakira and Jennifer Lopez have teased aspects of their performances but it’s set to be an amazing spectacle.
