By  |  4 Comments

Watching Super Bowl XLVII on the iPhone is a simple task thanks to apps from Verizon and a cool gadget that can stream home TV to an iPhone or iPad with no monthly fees.

On Sunday February 3rd the San Francisco 49′ers take on the Baltimore Ravens and even if you can’t be at home or a friend’s to watch the Super Bowl on the big screen it’s possible to watch the super bowl on the iPhone or iPad.

CBS is streaming the Super Bowl on Sunday to users on a computer, but for the iPhone there are still ways to watch the 2013 Super Bowl.

How to Watch Super Bowl 2013 on iPhone

Verizon iPhone users have it easy, with an official Super Bowl streaming app for the iPhone and some iPads, but iPhone and iPad users willing to buy a Slingbox can also enjoy the Super Bowl on the iPhone.

Verizon iPhone users have the easiest option thanks to Verizon’s NFL Mobile app. The app is free, but users will need to pay a $5 monthly fee to watch the Super Bowl on the iPhone.

The app provides live streaming of the 2013 Super Bowl on the iPhone and on the iPad. The app only works on Verizon devices, so WiFi only iPad users are out of luck, as are users on any other carrier.

The NFL Mobile app streams the Super Bowl over 3G, 4G LTE and WiFi, but users will want to find WiFi for the best experience. The app will not allow users to output the video to a TV with HDMI or with AirPlay.

Watch the Super Bowl on iPhone with Slingbox

For everyone else the best way to watch the Super Bowl on the iPhone or iPad is with a Slingbox and the Slingplayer app for iPhone and iPad.

Watch the 2013 Super Bowl live on the iPhone with Slingbox.

The Slingbox is a small box that connects to a cable box to stream every channel to mobile devices like the iPhone, iPad, Android and computers. This allows users to “place shift” TV, so they are watching their home cable or satellite subscription while mobile.

This isn’t just good for the Super Bowl, but for any major sporting event, prime time TV or just watching your cable on demand programming while on the go.

Best Buy is one of the only local retailers who sell the Slingbox. Users can pick from the Slingbox 350 for $179.99 and the Slingbox 500 for $299. Users will need to purchase the Slingplayer app.

    Hey guys, I am watching the stream here: http://dlr.ae/J

    (it has lots of working live streams currently to choose from)

    For me, here is my wild predition on whose gonna win: 49ers are just an all around better football team ever since they started Kap. yes ravens have ray lewis and playing with heart. but heart can only get you so far. i dont see flacco rice boldin and lewis beating out Kap, Gore, crabtree, moss and their defensive unit. maybe next year ravens but this year is not your year. Im not an expert but have been watching football as long as i can remember.
