Super Bowl LVI is here! In 2022, you don't just consume the NFL on a TV. You can get injury updates, fantasy scores, and more through apps and the web. You can even watch games on the go depending on your subscriptions and which company is broadcasting the big game (NBC will broadcast Super Bowl LVI). These are the best Windows apps to watch the Super Bowl and will make sure that you don't miss a second of the Cincinnati Bengals squaring off against the Los Angeles Rams.
Facts and highlights
The other apps in this collection allow you to watch or listen to content on internet-connected devices, but if you want to add depth to the games you watch, you need to use Twitter. Reporters, bloggers, and video makers are all on Twitter and active during NFL games and throughout the week. Tweeten, which is available on PCs, lets you watch the news and insight roll in live.
Straight from the source
NBC will broadcast Super Bowl LVI. As you'd expect, the company's own streaming service, Peacock, will also show the matchup. If you don't want to download the Peacock app, you can also watch Super Bowl LVI on NBCSports.com. The NBC Sports app isn't on Windows but will show the game as well.
TuneIn Radio allows you to listen to a wide range of content, from music to sports. If you subscribe to TuneIn Premium, you gain access to live play-by-play broadcasts of every NFL game, including the Super Bowl. You also get access to broadcasts for NBA, NHL, and MLB games in addition to removing display ads.
Eyes on the action
Hulu + Live TV allows you to watch a wide variety of live content, including NFL games on NBC, CBS, Fox, ESPN, and the NFL Network. While a large number of viewers will have access to the big game through Hulu + Live TV, it's worth confirming whether you'll get it in your area on Hulu's website before subscribing. Hulu's Windows app is a Progressive Web App that supports live TV. You can also view the service through your web browser.
Watching your team
Sling TV is very popular with cord-cutters and has an excellent app for Windows 11 and Windows 10. The Sling Blue package is recommended for NFL fans, but there are several other combinations you can choose. Planning ahead for the regular season, you'll have to get Sling Orange or Sling Orange + Blue to watch games on ESPN.
Using the web
While there are many great apps for consuming NFL content, the best way to view some things is directly through a browser. For example, if you subscribe to YouTube TV or Vidgo, you'll need to have a browser handy to watch the NFL on your PC. Any good browser will do, but my browser of choice is Microsoft Edge.
Look at the schedule
Sports panelist Woody Paige always emphasizes that you "look at the schedule!" when talking about sports. The same holds true for watching the NFL. Outlook lets you subscribe to calendars, including the NFL's calendar, to make sure that you never miss a big game, including the biggest game of them all. You'll have to set this up on the Outlook website, and then you can view them in the Mail and Calendar app.
Super Bowl LVI looks to be a thrilling matchup between two teams that haven't been to the big game in a long time. While most of these apps will help you watch games live, one of the best ways to enhance your NFL experience is to use Tweeten. The TweetDeck client will make sure that you're up to date on the game as well as any trending topics. You never know when a player will break a record or when an upset will happen. Using Tweeten will ensure that you get all the NFL coverage that you'd like.
Many of the best Windows 10 apps center around watching content. The app that you should use to watch NFL games depends largely on whether you already have a subscription to a service. But if you're starting from scratch or you just cut the cord, Sling TV is an excellent option. Sling Blue + Orange is a nice package of channels for NFL fans.
In addition to providing NFL-related content, Tweeten and Sling TV are both excellent apps on Windows. They'll work well with your Windows desktop, laptop, 2-in-1, or tablet.
