Whether you tune in for the sports, commercials, or epic halftime shows, the Super Bowl is an undeniable force in American culture. It's lent a stage to the likes of Beyoncé, Madonna, and Paul McCartney, turned ad spots into an art form, and given us some of the most momentous face-offs in football history. So when the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots take the field this Sunday, Feb. 5, you'll want to be watching, and, if you're among the flocks of people cutting cords and bidding adieu to traditional televisions, now is the time to figure out how to stream the 2017 Super Bowl.
Luckily for viewers, the NFL doesn't want anyone to miss out on their biggest night of the year. There are a number of ways to catch the game online, and they've prepared a line-up worth seeing. Country star Luke Bryan is performing the National Anthem, the commercials are shaping up to be can't-miss, and Lady Gaga will headline her halftime set while suspended from the roof of Houston's NRG Stadium. Oh, and then there's that whole football thing that's kind of the main event. So yeah, Super Bowl LI is kind of a big deal. Here's how to watch.
