The Seattle Seahawks take on the Denver Broncos at MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey. Over the past several years, people have been looking for proper ways to watch the Super Bowl live online, but were usually forced to look for shady live streaming services.

Although, the Super Bowl 2014 streaming is completely free to watch on your PC, Mac or iPad, you need to shell out five bucks as subscription fee, if you want to watch Super Bowl on Android, iPhone, BlackBerry or Windows Phone. This is because, the free version of NFL Mobile app will only let you check the updated score and highlights, and the live streaming on Fox Sports Go app works only on iPad.
