This Sunday the New England Patriots will take on the Atlanta Falcons at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, for the Super Bowl. Now, if you’d prefer to skip out on a pair of $10,000 MVP tickets, you can turn the channel to FOX at 6:30 p.m. Eastern time. But that’s not your only option — far from it. So take some time to decide how you're going to watch the big game before this weekend, and focus on what's really important: making those delicious, delicious ribs.

Stream it online.
There's never been a better excuse to get some use out of your new projector. Or maybe you'll only have you laptop handy. Either way, point your browser to FoxSportsGo.com. As long as you have a cable account and access to a FOX Sports channel, you’ll be able to watch for free. You’ll be redirected to log in with your TV provider’s credentials, and you’re in.

Watch it on your phone.
Install the FOX Sports GO app for Android or iOS. This is the app version of the streaming option above; if you have conventional TV access, you can watch on your phone without spending a dime.

Pay for NFL Game Pass.
No FOX Sports access? The National Football League has figured out how to take your money another way. A $25 subscription fee gets you every game through February 17.

Use any one of several streaming devices.
You know their names: Apple TV, Roku, Android TV, Chromecast, Amazon Fire. Each one of these is equipped to bring you the pigskin action. Simply download the compatible FOX Sports GO app and sign in to your TV provider. 

Watch it in virtual reality.
Install the Fox Sports VR app on your Android or iOS smartphone, then make use of some headgear to stick your phone in front of your eyes. This part is important: It will not be true 360-degree video — you’ll instead be placed in a digital environment where you can watch the live broadcast on a two-dimensional TV screen. But hey, VR!
