When Is Super Bowl 2019 and How Can You Watch It Online For Free?

The Super Bowl is one of the biggest events in America even for non-sport lovers and the Super Bowl 2019 aka Super Bowl LIII is almost upon us. It will be the 53rd Super Bowl in the history of American football, hence the name Super Bowl LIII. Last year, 2018, the Super Bowl LII recorded an unprecedented number of viewers around the world, and this year with even more options on how to watch the biggest football competition free online speculations are that the numbers will reach a new record high. Here’s everything you need to know about 2019’s Super Bowl.

Super Bowl 53 Date and Host City

The Super Bowl 2019 is scheduled to hold on the 3rd of February 2019 at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. The city emerged as the winner of the host city following a vote that was carried out on May 24, 2016.

It will be the third time the city would host the Super Bowl but the first time it will be taking place at the venue, the Mercedes-Benz Stadium which just opened its doors in 2017.

The two previous Super Bowls held in the city including Super Bowl XXXIV in the year 2000 were held at the Georgia Dome. The arena which was part of the Georgia World Congress Center Authority was demolished on the 20th of November 2018.

The Mercedes-Benz Stadium is situated just adjacent to the Georgia Dome and was officially commissioned on the 26th of August 2017.

Procedures for Online Viewing

Getting a seat inside a Super Bowl stadium doesn’t come cheap, thus the most preferred way to enjoy the most anticipated game of the season is online. In the United States, the Super Bowl 2019 would be broadcast live by CBS. However, for those who may not have access to cable TV on that day, a smartphone with an internet connection is all that is required to enjoy the show.

For those in the United States, CBS has promised that it would stream the event live through its Sports website and mobile apps without a sign-in requirement.

Additionally, all of CBS’ cable, satellite, telecom, and streaming TV partners would grant access to all mobile users. CBS would also stream on big-screen devices like Fire TV, Roku players, Samsung TVs, Xbox One, Apple TV, Android TV, Chromecast, and Amazon’s Channels.

Verizon has a looser NFL Deal which grants it the right to stream the game on mobiles via its carrier-independent sites and services like AOL, Complex, Tumblr and Yahoo.

However, for football lovers who might be outside the United States at the time and thus may not have access to the free online streaming since it’s only available to those in the US, well there is a way out!

All you need to do is download a hotspot VPN shield on your mobile device. This tool among its many features would enable you to mask your current geographical location and make it appear as though you are in the United States, thus giving you online access just as those in the United Staes. So wherever you are in Africa, Asia or the Middle East, all you need do is download a hotspot VP shield…

Next step, change the server location option to “United States” and then head to those streaming platforms where the game is streaming in the US and you would have completely unrestricted access to enjoy the full-action of the Super Bowl 2019.

Everything To Know About The Halftime Show

The Super Bowl event doubles as a sporting event and a music show thanks to its highly anticipated half-time show which attracts the interest of non-sports lovers. In 2016 when it was revealed that the Super Bowl LIII would hold in Atlanta, many speculated that the half-time show will be performed by a hip-hop artist.

Thus, Americans were shocked when reports surfaced on credible entertainment sites (including Billboard) that pop-rock boy band Maroon 5 was selected for the performance. Reports also had it that the likes of Jay Z, Cardi B, Adele, Rihanna, and Pink had previously turned down the invitation to perform at the halftime show. However, the NFL is yet to release an official statement about which star would be entertaining the football-loving crowd at the Super Bowl 2019 halftime show.
