How to Watch the Super Bowl Online for Those Living Outside the US

superbowl-2015

Are you a Seahawks fan or a Patriots fan or just someone who is passionate about American NFL football, but are living abroad?

NBC will stream the NFL Super Bowl XLIX live via this page, http://stream.nbcsports.com/liveextra/. But due to broadcasting regulations, NBC is only allowed to show NBC Sports content on the internet in the United States and U.S. Territories.

The good news is that there’s a work around to enable you to watch the Super Bowl live online outside of the US.

Watch NBC’s Coverage of the Super Bowl from Abroad

To watch the live streaming of the Superbowl on the NBC Sports site, you would need to get a U.S. IP address.

The Hotspot Shield VPN app enables you to connect to a server in the US and gives you a US I.P. address. Furthermore, if you want to stream the game at a public WiFi hotspot, the good news is that Hotspot Shield will protect and secure your device, preventing hackers from stealing your sensitive information.

Hotspot Shield has support for multiple devices and platforms so you can watch the SuperBowl on your Mac laptop, Windows PC, Android tablet, or iOS smartphone.

Step by Step Instruction on How to Stream the Super Bowl Game on NBC Sports via Hotspot Shield

1. Go to hotspotshield.com, iTunes or the Google Play store and download Hotspot Shield. Once it’s installed, it will turn on and connect automatically.

2. To be able to access NBC Sports live streaming site, you will need an IP Address from the US. On the Hotspot Shield interface, select United States in the drop-down menu next to Virtual Location.

3. Now, you’re connected to the Internet virtually from the US. To verify that you are virtually located in the US, visit whatismyipaddress.com. You will see that you have a US IP address and your location is in the US.

    forgot to include the fact that to watch abc, or nbc sports live you usually must have a US Cable TV account. ooops. A suggestion is to locate a streamer. Any suggestions?

    I have two problems and don’t know if there are 2 or 1 solution to them – I need a local US phone number – free calls to and back, and I also need a US ip address, so I can watch all the great stuff I’m being prevented from now – Don’t know if I need a static ip or not or what the difference is, but I heard that can slow down your service, which makes sense if it’s being routed through an additional server.

      Hi Bill,
      “I need a local US Phone number” => Have you tried to use Skype? You can buy Skype credits and then make very cheap calls anywhere in the world, you can even set up a phone number. There is also Vonage that offers unlimited calling to US for a monthly subscription, not sure if that can work better for you or not. It also depends on the quantity of calls and duration that you may have to do.
      “I need a US IP address” => Hotspot Shield can definitely help you get one. Either with the free version (Ads-supported), you’ll automatically be assigned a US IP address or with Hotspot Shield Elite version, and in this case you’ll benefit from an ad-free experience, the choice between 9 virtual locations (US being one of them) and unlimited access to your favorite content.
      Hope this helps!
