What's The Best Way To Watch The Superbowl?

Super Bowl XLVII—featuring the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers—happens Sunday, February 3 in New Orleans. CBS has the broadcast rights to the game this year, and kickoff is 6:30pm Eastern. You can  Stream the game live online at, or on a phone or tablet, you can download the NFL Mobile app at Of course, won't won't get the best  picture quality streaming on the internet, and as often happens when millions of people try to access the same stream, servers crash, and who wants to watch on a 3 inch screen?

So, if the internet doesn't have the best picture, who does have the best picture for the big game? DirecTV, Dish Network, Comcast, Time-Warner cable? Another cable company? The answer may surprise you.


The best picture for the Super Bowl is not on Dish or DirecTV. It's not Comcast, or any other pay TV provider. In fact, the best seat in your neighborhood for the game is...

The guy with an antenna on his roof.  (Or even a guy with an old coat hanger for an antenna!)

 I know, you're thinking, "Wait, I pay $99 a month to get 259 channels. How can a guy who pays zero dollars a month for TV have a better picture than me?" Well, your problem is those 259 channels. All those channels have to be squeezed down your cable or your satellite company's satellite signal. To give you all those channels, they have to compress them.The result is decreased picture quality. With an antenna, you get a much less compressed picture.

So if you want the best seat for the Super Bowl - or any TV broadcast - Get a TV Antenna.

Of course, you could just make a batch of wings and Layered Taco Dip, kick back with a cold brewski and catch a movie on Netflix or watch a new episode of Downton Abbey on PBS if you don't want to watch the game. (like me). Hey, 90% of people who watch the game think the commercials are the best part of the show, so why not just watch the commercials?
