Is there any way to watch this thing for free, in Europe?

Need BBC TV license though. So I guess that’s not free. That’s all I could find. Hope it helps.

I'm not sure if this will work, but you could try a stream from Reddit.

https://www.reddit.com/r/nflstreams/com ... _rams_630/

Under the verified streamers, I chose buff streams the one thats says "HD Super Bowl Live Stream Intl. 60fps"

There's a couple of ads but once you click them, it's okay. I'm watching right now..

It's going to be shown on BBC Sports, not sure if you can access that one. For me, I can't get that one.

I watched it on a US network website using Hola free VPN: http://hola.org/

Worked great.

I turned off after the first half though. What a terrible game. Worst halftime show ever. And I didn't realize until it was too late that Cardi B refused to play the show, to show her support for Kaepernick. It's amazing how much like the military the NFL is, in a bad way. :no:

Regarding the game itself, it wasn't exciting to the average fan because it was decent defensive battle. Frankly, the only reason the Rams didn't lose by a lot more than they did was because they were effective against Brady for 2/3rds of the game and he didn't have a great performance anyway. I will say even the commentary was lackluster for much of the game.

The halftime show was like room temperature milk. A great example of how this generations pop stars are bland and interchangeable. Granted, Superbowl halftime shows aren't usually noted for being edgy pop or rock performance milestones but it seems the likes of another Springsteen, Prince, Michael Jackson or U2 making the kind of buzz those acts did is a distant memory now. Now the most a viewer can hope for is some pandering choreographed nod to whatever social justice cause of the week may be. Even the commercials were mostly dull or preachy. It's no longer a celebration or a party, it's a message.
