How to Watch Only Super Bowl Ads
Honestly, you watch the Super Bowl for the commercials. Well, now you don’t have to go through all the whistles, flags and other sports stuff that you really don’t understand . You can stream them all online – some even before the big game – and make all these companies feel stupid for spending $ 5 million to stream a 30-second ad.
Watch ads right now with YouTube AdBlitz
You can watch all of the Super Bowl promotional teasers (yes, there are teasers for ads now) and pre-released YouTube commercials right now. If you are using a browser, just visit the YouTube AdBlitz homepage . From there, you can browse the Super Bowl commercials currently released, or search for specific commercials by keyword or brand.
If you can’t use your browser (or just don’t want to), you can still access the same content on your mobile device or through your streaming devices. The YouTube app is available on iOS phones and tablets, Android phones and tablets , Apple TV, Amazon Fire , Roku, Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Google Chromecast. Download it if you don’t already have it, then find the YouTube AdBlitz channel . It won’t have the same attractive interface as a dedicated website, but you can still see all the teasers and pre-ads. You can also find and watch all of the Super Bowl commercials from past years if you want to compare.
Please be aware that not all ads are posted ahead of time. You may have to go back after the game to see every ad that shows on the air. It’s safe to say, however, that YouTube AdBlitz is likely to have most, if not all, of the ads by Sunday night, and definitely the ones that people will talk about on Monday.
Follow us on Twitter for new Super Bowl hashtag ads
If you’re hoping to catch the Super Bowl ad as it rolls out , follow the hashtags # SB51 and #SuperBowl on Twitter. Open the Twitter app or go to the Twitter homepage and search for these hashtags. Then select the “video” tab. You’ll see a lot of videos, but if you watch them, you’ll also see big brands sharing their recently aired commercials from the twitterverse. Not the most efficient method, but useful if you are mobile or only want to watch certain commercials.
How to watch a halftime show
Who doesn’t want Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett to do a free live concert? In addition, the best videos are already running during the break. It kicks off at 6:30 PM EST (3:30 PM PST), and according to Joe Flint of the Los Angeles Times , the average NFL game lasts about three hours and 12 minutes (including actual game times, commercial breaks, and time between plays). So we’ll split it in half and the first half will be about an hour and a half.
If you’d like to watch the show in between, change the channel to Fox or tune in to the free Fox Sports Go live stream – no later than 8:00 PM EST (5:00 PM PST) . Just in case, check the game about 15 minutes before. If you want to watch Luke Brian sing the national anthem, tune in to the Fox Kickoff Show from 6:30 pm to 6:30 pm ET (3:00 pm to 3:30 pm PST).
