It’s Super Bowl Sunday, and you are frantically searching for some way to watch the game with all those friends you invited over at the last minute, right? That, or you are at home alone with a pint of ice cream.
Either way, it’s OK, and everything is going to be fine! It’s actually super easy to watch the Super Bowl online this year. Just click over to NBC, and they’ll have everything set up for you. You don’t even need proof of a cable subscription or anything.
Yes, dear American, your online dreams have been answered
Want to watch 10 straight hours of Super Bowl coverage in what can only be described as the modern-day equivalent of Chinese water torture? You can! NBC will start its livestream at 12 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Sunday, Feb. 1, and will continue to stream Super Bowl coverage until around 10 p.m., when it’ll throw on a new episode “The Blacklist.” The actual Super Bowl starts around 6:30 p.m. on NBC.
This isn’t the first time NBC has streamed the Super Bowl, but it is the first time it’s been able to include the halftime show in the stream, which is good news for those of you who are forced to watch the Super Bowl but hate, you know, football.
One thing to note: The streaming service won’t work on your smartphone. But honestly, you don’t want to be that guy anyway.
