How to Stream the Super Bowl, Kitten Bowl, and Puppy Bowl

The Super Bowl is upon us, and that means it's time for another team to see if they can beat the New England Patriots. This year, it's the Philadelphia Eagles. If you don't care about either of those teams, you'll probably watch anyway, or maybe you're more excited about the crazy commercials, the Puppy Bowl, the Kitten Bowl, or Justin Timberlake's half-time show.

Regardless which show tickles your fancy, it's sometimes tough to figure out how to stream it without a cable subscription. We're here to help, loyal readers. Below is the Wired guide to streaming all three 2018 Bowls.

Also, be sure to check out our favorite 4K TV, Kitchen, and Home Tech Deals before the game.

What Time Do All These Events Start?

Sunday, Feb. 4, 2018 is a busy day.

Kitten Bowl (12 p.m. ET): The Kitten Bowl will kick off the day's activities at 12 p.m. ET on the Hallmark Channel. It features a ton of adorable kittens, all displaced by natural disasters, competing for the "Feline Football trophy" and a "forever home" to live. All these cuddly critters are up for adoption.

Puppy Bowl (3 p.m. ET): The Puppy Bowl kicks off a few hours later, at 3:00 p.m. ET and airs on Animal Planet. It will probably re-air during the Super Bowl, too because, who cares about scores? These fluff balls are adorable. The Puppy Bowl XIV starting lineup includes 39 puppies and pits Team Ruff against Team Fluff. It has a "Kitty Play" half-time show. The puppies and kittens are also adoptable.

Super Bowl (6:00 p.m. ET): The 2018 Super Bowl (LII) begins at 6:30 p.m. ET Sunday, Feb. 4, 2018. It airs live on NBC from the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It will have a dozens of Eagles and Patriots throwing the old pigskin around. Pink will sing the national anthem and Justin Timberlake will dance around and sing halfway through the game.

How to Stream All The Bowls

For a complete day of baby animal cuteness and Super Bowl insanity, you'd normally need a cable subscription so you get the NBC, Animal Planet, and Hallmark channels. Luckily, there are now a lot of Live TV streaming services that replicate cable for cheaper, and often have free trials.

DirecTV Now appears to be the only live TV service that has all three channels. Its "Live a Little" bundle has all three channels for $35 a month, along with 60 or so others. We recommend you use the free 7-day trial to your advantage.

The DirecTV Now app is available on Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Roku devices. You can also Chromecast it to your TV using the iPad/iPhone or Android app, and it works on a PC or Mac if you visit DirecTVNow.com. Just browse to the Hallmark channel for the Kitten Bowl, Animal Planet for the Puppy Bowl, and NBC for the Super Bowl.

There is one catch. To get NBC live, you must live in an area supported by a local NBC channel (details here). If you encounter issues, use the free NBC Sports appor website. If prompted, choose DirecTV Now as your TV Provider. PS4 does not have this app.

How to Stream the Kitten Bowl

There are three purrfect services that will let you watch the Kitten Bowl. DirecTV is the service that has all three, so it's still our pick for kitten lovers, but there are a couple more options.

Hallmark

If you don't care about the Puppy Bowl at all, the best Live TV service is Sling TV. Order the standard $20 Orange bundle (with a 7-day free trial) and add on the $5 Lifestyle package to get the Hallmark channel. If you'd like to watch the Super Bowl too (and don't want to fiddle with the free NBC Sports app), buy the $25 Blue bundle and add the Lifestyle package to it instead. Sling TV is compatible with most devices.

Fubo TV is an alternative to Sling. It comes with a larger $45 price tag, but has 80 channels including Hallmark and NBC—and a free 7-day trial.

If you run into trouble watching the Super Bowl on any of these services, use the NBC Sports app or website instead. If prompted, create an account by selecting Fubo, Sling, or DirecTV as your TV provider. PS4 does not have these apps.

How to Stream the Puppy Bowl

You hardly belong on the internet if you hate cats, but skipping the Kitten Bowl does open your streaming options up. DirecTV Now's 7-day free trial is still your best option, but there is one more.

PlayStation Vue carries NBC and Animal Planet on its "Access" plan for $40 per month and has a 5-day free trial. Just browse to Animal Planet for the Puppy Bowl and NBC for the Super Bowl. Vue is available on PS4, PS3, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Android TV, and on the web at psvue.com/watch.

Animal Planet

Be sure to check to make sure you're in one of the cities with live NBC coverage to make sure you can stream the Super Bowl. Test NBC in the app in advance to know if it will work.

If the Super Bowl stream isn't working, use the NBC Sports app or website. They should be free, but if prompted, create a login with PlayStation Vue or DirecTV Now as your TV Provider. PS4 owners will need to use Vue.

How to Stream the Super Bowl

If you aren't feeling cuddly and want to get straight to over-analyzing Tom Brady's hand injury, well, there are a lot of options for you.

Watch Free Without Logging In

NBC is offering free online livestreaming beginning at 12:00 p.m. ET with the Super Bowl pre-game show, right through the end of the game. You should not have to log in to access the feed on web browsers, iPhone/iPad, or Android. The mobile apps are Chromecast enabled, which is a $35 device that enable streaming on your TV.

Roku

You may not need a Chromecast, though. The NBC Sports app should also stream for free on Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Windows, Apple TV, Xbox, and Samsung smart TVs.

Unlike previous years, the NFL put out a press release claiming you can also watch the Super Bowl live on Verizon's apps, even if you aren't a Verizon Wireless subscriber. This info is contradicted in a FAQ, but we're still hopeful. These include iPhone/iPad and Android support for the NFL App, Yahoo Sports app, and Go90.

PS4 owners should use the live TV streaming service, PlayStation Vue. There's a chance that the NFL app will show the game for free, and may have on-demand via GamePass, but it's unclear.

Watch It On a Live TV Service with a Free Trial

Nearly every Live TV service has NBC and a free trial. Sling TV is our favorite. It's $25 for the Blue package with NBC and free for 7 days (make sure the Super Bowl is available in your zipcode). Sling has a massive list of supported devices, including Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Android phones, iPhone, iPad, Android TV, Samsung smart TVs, LG smart TVs, Fire Tablets, and Xbox One. You can also Chromecast it from an iPad, Android device, iPhone, or Chrome Browser.

Sling isn't your only option. DirecTV Now is $35 and free for 7 days, PlayStation Vue is $40 and free for 5 days (only option for PS4 owners), Hulu Live is $40 and free for 7 days, YouTube TV is $35 and free for 7 days, and FuboTV is $45 per month and free for 7 days. CordCutterNews has a great device compatibility list for every service.

Watch Free Using a Digital Antenna

If you think you might live close enough to pick up a live NBC broadcast, you can purchase a digital indoor TV antenna. We've had good luck with flat window antennas. This $26 antenna looks like a solid pick and has good range. Just stick it right on your window, aimed in the general direction of the stations you're hoping to reach, if at all possible, and go to ANT in your TV's input list.

A decent antenna from Winegard is also available via Amazon Prime Now same-day delivery in some areas, as well.

Watch the Super Bowl Later, On Demand

The NFL GamePass will let you watch the game starting Monday (12 a.m. ET midnight) at your convenience on most major devices, and it also has a free trial. Just be sure to put your phone away and stay away from every screen and person you know until you watch it.

You Can Also Listen to the Super Bowl

If moving pictures aren't your thing, or you're going to be out somewhere, you can listen to the Super Bowl live in a few different ways. TuneIn, SiriusXM, NFL GamePass, and Westwood One radio stations.

If none of these solutions work, I can only imagine you need a new TV or a new TV streaming box (just buy a Roku). Or maybe just bite the bullet and order cable. It would be tragic to miss all the puppies, kittens, Eagles, and Patriots this Sunday.

Heinz’s ‘Weiner Stampede’ Super Bowl ad is full of dogs dressed as hot dogs

Heinz’s latestKetchup commercial is like an extra side of adorableness.

The condiment giant’s Super Bowl 50ad treats us to a stampede of wiener dogs dressed up as actual wieners (meaning hot dogs, not the other kind; get your mind out of the gutter). You’ll squeal in delight as you watch these pooches run through a picturesque fieldstraight into the arms of a condiment family. Because nothing goes together quite like mustard and ketchup on top of a hot dog.

You know what they say, man’s best friend is a hot dog.

Puppy Bowl 2016: Puppies Play Their Hearts Out In Doggone Adorable Match

Forty-nine rambunctious puppies took center stage at Puppy Bowl XII Sunday afternoon, captivating TV audiences in the much anticipated “ruff” and tumble free-for-all.

Two pint-sized teams, #TeamFluff and #TeamRuff, charged onto Animal Planet’s miniature football field at 3 p.m. EST ready to play ball with a bonafide referee on hand (with plenty of doggie poop bags) to ensure it will be a good, clean match.

As if watching wobbly-legged puppies tumble over another isn’t heartwarming enough, the action-packed event’s focus is on adoption awareness.

All the pooches were drafted from 44 animal shelters and rescue organizations from around the country. By the end of Sunday’s big play date, the event’s organizers hope to have every last one placed into a good home. 

This year’s entertainment includes chicken cheerleaders and a return of their wise-cracking parrot, Meep, providing play-by-play coverage on Twitter.

And instead of a Coldplay headlined half-time show, kitties will take the spotlight.

The adorable special is San Francisco-themed, showing the fur balls pawing across a miniature Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman’s Wharf and the infamous prison, “Al-Cat-Raz.”

‘Kitten Bowl’ Host Beth Stern Brings National Attention To Animals In Need

Animal advocate, author and model Beth Stern will host this weekend’s“Kitten Bowl III” for the third consecutive year, a cat-tastic kitty showdown premieringon “Su-purr Bowl Sunday,” February 7.

Wife to radio personality Howard Stern, Beth became a nameto remember before her journey with the “Kitten Bowl” began, when she walked the runway for North Shore Animal League over 10 years ago, holding an adoptable puppy in her arms while dressed in a couture fashion gown.

She recalls modeling for NSAL’s annual fundraising luncheon and tells meshe refused to leave the venue until every puppy had been adopted. It was this pivotal moment that would usher in a new chapter in Beth’s life.

“How lucky am I?” she says of the opportunity to be the face of the ber-successful adoption event. When Hallmark Channel first pitched Beth on the show three years ago, she remembers the feeling:

I couldnt even believe it. I said, This is a joke — thats the greatest job in the world, that I get to sit on a field and have kittens crawl all over me, and promote animal adoption.

Since filming, the 100 cats and kittens involved in this year’s “Kitten Bowl” have been adopted,continuing the event’s 100 percent success rate since its inception.

It’s not just the luck of the draw for the batch of kittens and cats that get their 15 minutes of fame, however; the “Kitten Bowl” raises awareness for animals in need in the months leading up to the event, paving the way for hundreds more animals to find loving homes.

Beth tells me,

We hold kitten parties all over the United States with partnering shelters, and there are so many adoption events and specials where thousands [of animals] — even dogs, cat, puppies and kittens — are all adopted that day because of the awareness Hallmark Channel brings [from] the ‘Kitten Bowl.’

It’s for this reason Beth hosts the annual event.She says,

Its proven that theyve increased adoptions because of it and thats why I continue to do it. Its really special and so meaningful to me that thats what happens as a result of us all coming together and celebrating the cuteness of kittens.

Beth’s grassroots efforts extend much further beyond the scope of national television, however, as well as her relationship with “Kitten Bowl” partner North Shore Animal League, the world’s largest no-kill animal shelter.

Beth has been a volunteer for the rescue since the day she walked that runway over 10 years ago, covering adoption events and making appearances on talk shows as the shelter’s spokesperson.

What the experience has awarded her is realizing her passion for being hands-on with the animals, caring for themdirectly and gifting them with promising futures.

When her and Howard’s beloved dog, Bianca, passed away three years ago, Beth vowed to go the extra mile forcats upon realizing the low adoption rate offelines compared to caninesat the rescue. Since then, they have gone on to house, nurture and find homes for over 200 cats.

The couple first opened their home to adult special needs cats, before upping the ante with a whole litter of kittens. Beth recounts where her journey to becoming foster mom for hundreds of cats began,

I went to a kill shelter — a municipal shelter — where this litter of kittens was about to be euthanized, and I literally took them an hour away from being euthanized, brought them home and nurtured them and had them for the weeks needed until they were healthy and at the proper weight for spay and neuter, and I had them spayed and neutered. Then it began.

Almost 4 million cats enter shelters every year, of a rough 70 million stray cats nationwide, and a significant portion of those are euthanized before getting another chance at life in a loving home. Beth’s activistefforts are attributing names — a jobHoward dutifullytakes on — and personalities to hundreds of cats that might be otherwise overlooked in a quick shelter walkthrough.

Shetalks about the “formula thats working magic” in finding her foster cats homes, owing her success stories to a combination of social media, her position in the public eye and Howard utilizing his radio platform as a medium toboastabout his wife’s passion.

The way she describes her husband places him in a vulnerable spotlight, a gentle personawhich most fans might never have envisioned possible from the crude humor by which he’s made his name. She tells me,

My husband talks about my rescue work; hes apart of it. He’s my partner. … Hes with me when Im socializing the kittens.

I was in Los Angeles…and Howard was on kitten duty. He was sending me hourly updates; he was cleaning litter boxes.


Adoptable Miracle had her ears cut off and was left in a cold, wet dumpster before being rescued by NSAL and fostered by Beth.

Fostering is a full-time job, a gig most would consider too greata commitment or responsibility to take on amongst the busyness of daily life. But for Beth, it’s her calling, her life’s passion. Instead of peddling over the time she must devote to taking care of her animals, she thrives in it.

About the 24/7 job, Beth tells me, “I know its my purpose in life. I love it; I live for it.” Howard even made an attempt at persuading his wife to take the bench for a quarter, give herself a breather from the constant “mommy” role toher foster cats, but giving up on these animals is a non-negotiable for the 43-year-old.

She says,

Im just so addicted to it; it feels so good. And I know there are lives involved that need me, and so Im not stopping anytime soon.

Beth’s love for animals isn’t a newfound calling brought on in the past decade.The Pittsburgh native grew up surrounded by animals, a result ofher family’s parallelresolveto caring for animals in need. Her dedication has firm roots in that upbringing, which she remembers fondly,

I think its in my blood, honestly. … I didnt even realize you could buy pets, just because all of our pets were either pets [my family]found on the street, or neighbors didnt want their pets, so we ended up adopting them.

We always rescued the wildlife — hurt wildlife — that were in our yard, took them to the rehab place and then released them. It just was something that was part of our everyday growing up.

Fostering isa job that comes with significant emotional reward but also emotional toll.Imagine investing your days innurturing animals as members of your own family, only to gift them to a qualified home in due time.

If Beth could offer a word of advice to anyone looking to volunteer their time to foster shelter animals as she does, she’d warn of the emotional attachment, but heed the importance of saving lives.

She’s no stranger to the feeling of, “I have to keep this animal,” during the process, but what keeps her sane and committed to the program is knowing she can save another life when she sends one off to a loving home — that moment she refers to as, “My fosters are ready to fly.”

When her kittens flee the coupis the hardest part of the process for Beth. She says,

Its so hard for me to let go; I get so attached. I fall madly in love with every one of them, and then people are always like, You should keep them! Im not keeping my fosters. And what I do is once I deliver to somebody, and its so sad to let them go, I go right to North Shore Animal League and I pick up my next batch.

I always have somebody waiting for me, so I know when I have a life that Im handing over to an amazing family, theres another life that I am able to foster and take care of and find a home for, which opens up another space at North Shore Animal League to save another life.

That keeps me driven and keeps my mission and my purpose focused, and thats how Im able to do it.

Although she’s ended up adopting two fosters as her own — Yoda and Bella, whom she calls her “Foster Fails” — failing isn’t necessarily the appropriate term to explain her being unable to let go of these particular cats.

Yoda, an adult white Persian cat named by Howard, was given a three-month prognosis by veterinarians when Beth decided he deserved a comfortable home in which to live out his last days.

Three months has turned intotwo years, a miracle to some degree, and Yoda is still the kingof the kitty castle at the Stern household. Beth tells me what she thinks played a part in elongating Yoda’s time was when she brought home a litter of kittens,which Yoda would immediately take to caring for.

The story of Yoda coming back to life, “from a sad heart, to a happy heart,” is one of Beth’s two children’s books, “Yoda: The Story of a Cat and His Kittens.”

Though doctors can’t explain Yoda living far beyond his life expectancy, Beth is confident in how it happened: “Love and purpose healed his heart.”

Beth’s genuine connection to her work is evident in the way she shines when talking about her fosters and resident cats. She’s paving the way for a new practice through which animals are not simply tolerated but celebrated and awarded humane treatment, given homes in which they will be cherished for the duration of their much-too-short lives.

Beth is solicitous about the well-being of not only cats but all shelter animals in need, and her action to effect change through her position in the public eye is selfless at the very least.

Puppy Bowl 2016: Puppies Play Their Hearts Out In Doggone Adorable Match

Forty-nine rambunctious puppies took center stage at Puppy Bowl XII Sunday afternoon, captivating TV audiences in the much anticipated “ruff” and tumble free-for-all.

Two pint-sized teams, #TeamFluff and #TeamRuff, charged onto Animal Planet’s miniature football field at 3 p.m. EST ready to play ball with a bonafide referee on hand (with plenty of doggie poop bags) to ensure it will be a good, clean match.

As if watching wobbly-legged puppies tumble over another isn’t heartwarming enough, the action-packed event’s focus is on adoption awareness.

All the pooches were drafted from 44 animal shelters and rescue organizations from around the country. By the end of Sunday’s big play date, the event’s organizers hope to have every last one placed into a good home. 

This year’s entertainment includes chicken cheerleaders and a return of their wise-cracking parrot, Meep, providing play-by-play coverage on Twitter.

And instead of a Coldplay headlined half-time show, kitties will take the spotlight.

The adorable special is San Francisco-themed, showing the fur balls pawing across a miniature Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman’s Wharf and the infamous prison, “Al-Cat-Raz.”
