Is the Super Bowl even an issue for Cord Cutters?

I’ve written extensively about streaming the Super Bowl in the past. But unlike  other sporting events, this most watched broadcast would appear to present no barriers to cord cutters. Unlike other years not even a log-in will be required.

There is only one case I can think of and that is someone who is both out of range of the broadcast  AND has a  slow internet connection, say something like DSL or even dial-up. Of course that’s why God created sports bars.

I’d like to hear from anyone with difficulty watching Super Bowl 2015 for free.  And even more interested in who you think is going to win and why. As for me I’ll be rooting for the west coast Seattle team.

    Hi Augustine nice to hear from you. I think you know what so I take it you’re neither an NFL fan nor Katy Perry fan. Not even Idina Menzel ? Your plans for Sunday evening?

      Cutting the cord had many other effects in the kind of entertainment that I consume. I knew then that there would be some shows that I enjoyed that I wouldn’t be able to stream. After a while though, I realized that I didn’t really miss them that much. Moreover, with cable, I had appointments with the TV, organizing my daily activities around the schedule devised by programming directors. Now, my schedule is mine again. So the question implying what else I would watch on Sunday evening is not one I ask anymore. I may or may not watch anything then. I might have a concert to go to or do some reading or cook something I haven’t eaten in a while. It’s amazing how much catharsis TV causes on the country; it’s amazing how liberating cutting the cord is.
