Are you a Panthers fan, a Broncos one, someone who is passionate about American NFL football? Or just looking forward to catch the halftime enormous spectacles and the famous commercials but unfortunately are living abroad?
CBS will stream the NFL Super Bowl 50 live via this page, http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/superbowl/live/player on Sunday, February the 7th (6:30 pm ET). But due to broadcasting regulations (see 8.11 Broadcast and Territory Restrictions), CBS is only allowed to show CBS 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 for Free!
Watch CBS’ Coverage of the Super Bowl from Abroad
To watch the live streaming of the Super Bowl on the CBS Sports site, you need to get a U.S. IP address. Or in other words, browse the web as if you were connecting from the United States.
The Hotspot Shield VPN app enables you to connect to a server in the US and thus 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, iOS table or smartphone.
