Super Bowl LVII is here. It isn’t just any Sunday night football, but the one that wraps up the 2022-23 NFL season with a big bang. It promises a thrilling matchup between the AFC and NFC champions, a glamorous half-time show, and plenty of high-budget advertisements.
With all the fanfare and excitement around the Big Game, one can easily forget the most crucial part surrounding the sporting event: How to watch Super Bowl on Insignia Smart TV? This guide has the answer.
Where to Watch Super Bowl 2023 on Insignia Smart TV?
According to the current NFL broadcasting contract in the United States, Fox is to air the 57th Super Bowl. Super Bowl LIV was the last football championship game aired by the network, with CBS and NBC broadcasting the subsequent ones. Now it’s time for Fox again to be at the helm – both in the traditional and streaming space.
Fox is digitally streaming the 2023 Super Bowl on their official FOX Sports or FOX NOW app in up to 4K. Those still paying for a cable or satellite television contract can sign into the app with their account details. It’s available for Insignia Fire TV Edition and Roku Smart TVs.
For those without cable, there are a few over-the-top streaming TV subscription plans with which you can watch the Super Bowl live on FOX. Here are some of them:
DirectTV Stream’s basic Entertainment monthly package includes FOX and 75+ entertainment, sports, news, and other channels. It even provides unlimited cloud DVR storage and allows streaming on unlimited home devices. It’s ideal for watching the Super Bowl and the upcoming NFL primetime match-ups.
Hulu with Live TV
Those fed up with expensive monthly cable TV or streaming subscription bills will find the Hulu + Live TV bundle appealing. You’re getting 85+ top channels, unlimited live TV recordings, and ad-supported access to Hulu, Disney+, and ESPN+ streaming libraries – all at a reasonable monthly cost with parallel usage across two devices.
Sling’s most affordable monthly Sling Blue plan carries 40 channels and bundles 50-hour DVR storage. Plus, it lets subscribers stream simultaneously on three screens. However, the local FOX (and NBC) channel is available in only a handful of designated market areas, so verify the channel lineup on your ZIP code before getting it.
Vidgo is a newish streaming TV provider with seriously competitive pricing. If you’re looking for more than just the Super Bowl, the entry-level English PLUS package is a solid alternative to DirecTV’s offerings, with 110+ channels, on-demand programming, and 20 hours of DVR (albeit for the first three months).
How to Watch Super Bowl on Insignia Smart TV with Spanish Commentary
Fox Deportes is in charge of broadcasting the 2023 Super Bowl with Spanish-language commentary in the United States. If you already get the channel with your traditional TV provider, it’s as simple as activating the FOX Sports app on your Insignia Smart TV with the necessary details. Alternatively, subscribe to one of the following streaming plans:
- DirecTV Stream: Base Plan + Deportes Add-on/Óptimo MÁS
- fuboTV: fubo Latino
- Hulu with Live TV: Base Plan + Español Add-on
- Vidgo: Vidgo Mas
- YouTube TV: Spanish Plan
How to Watch Super Bowl on Insignia Smart TV in 4K
A few weeks earlier, Fox Sports announced its plans to air all of its NFL playoff games and Super Bowl LVII in 4K, marking the first time for a traditional TV network to achieve so. The championship game is to be shot in 1080p HDR but upscaled to 4K, but you’d still notice the massive jump in crispness and details.
The best part is that if you have a compatible 4K Insignia Smart TV and a high-speed internet connection (25 Mb/s or faster), you’ll be able to enjoy the Super Bowl in 4K and HDR via the FOX Sports app (requires logging in with a TV provider). That’s even if you don’t pay for a UHD subscription plan.
If you don’t have a traditional TV contract or a 4K set-top box, you can subscribe to either fuboTV or YouTube TV, two of the renowned American streaming television platforms.
With fuboTV’s Elite or Premiere plan or YouTube TV’s Base plan + 4K Plus add-on, one can tune into FOX’s 4K coverage of the Sunday night game. Besides 100+ basic and premium TV networks, the services offer complimentary benefits like cloud recording storage and concurrent streaming on unlimited home devices.
You can also opt for the cheaper Sling or Vidgo plans and sign into the FOX Sports app with your credentials to watch the 2023 Super Bowl in 4K on your Insignia Fire TV or Roku TV – without paying extra for an Ultra HD add-on.
