That’s all swell for U.S.-based Super Bowl fans, but international users, or Americans traveling overseas this weekend need to perform additional tricks to watch the game online. The NFL Game pass, which costs $54.99 for non U.S. residents, will let you stream the game from abroad, though it’s not free.
But as long as you have access to a service that lets you pretend you’re in the U.S. for the Super Bowl — such as a VPN service that should offer access to U.S.-based servers — you can watch the game free of charge, not counting the fees you pay for VPN access that is.
In order to set up a VPN connection on your computer, smartphone and tablet, with specific instructions for Mac, iPhone and iPad, check out this link before the game. Android users looking to do the same thing need to also check out this link.
