Are you looking for an easy way to watch the Seattle Seahawks take on the Denver Brocos on Super Bowl Sunday without relying on cable, or even without a TV at all?

And if you’re one of those persons who only watches the Super Bowl for the ads, then there are plenty of options for you available as well.
Check out our ultimate guide to watching Super Bowl XLVIII live online and mobile devices below:
Fox Sports will live stream the game itself, and a bunch of additional Super Bowl programming on its website as well as via its iPhone and iPad app. The live stream will begin Sunday morning at 10am ET (7am PT) with the Fox Super Bowl Kickoff show.
The pregame show will begin at 2pm ET, followed by the actual Super Bowl at 6pm ET. Around 10pm ET, Fox will stream the postgame show, followed by Fox Sports Programming Live programming.
