How to Watch the 2013 Super Bowl XLVII on Your iPhone

Posted on February 3, 2013 by


If you’re not able to watch the Super Bowl on your television or stream it on your computer at CBS Sports, here is a list of ways to follow the action on your iPhone.

NFL Mobile

This is probably the best way to watch the Super Bowl while on the go, because it features a high-quality live stream of the game. Unfortunately, this option only works for Verizon customers, since the company owns exclusive NFL mobile streaming rights. NFL Mobile is available for free in the App Store, but the live video requires a $10 premium subscription.

CBS Website

iPhone and iPad customers should also be able to stream the game from CBS Sports using Safari for free. The videos seem to be streaming fine on iOS devices right now, but I can’t guarantee they won’t disable this when the game starts. The website is

ESPN ScoreCenter

You don’t get live video with this app, but ESPN provides in-depth play-by-play coverage of the game. It’s also a great app for scores, stats and video highlights. ESPN ScoreCenter is available for free in the App Store.


Twitter is always a great way to keep up with events, including the Super Bowl. Here are some accounts you might want to follow: @SuperBowl, @NFL, @49ers and @Ravens. If you’d like to hear what others are talking about, try these hashtags: #SuperBowl, #CBSSuperBowl, #49ers, #Ravens and #SB47. The official Twitter app is available for free in the App Store, but my favorite app happens to be Tweetbot.

Enjoy the game!
