Wherever you are in the world, there's no denying that the Super Bowl will be the biggest show in town on February 12th. Some may tune in for the game to see if the red-hot Philadelphia Eagles can outlast Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs, others may come for the snacks and Rihanna's halftime show.
No matter what you're watching for, there may be some of you that need a solid VPN to watch a Super Bowl livestream. Some may need it to get around geo-restrictions, others may plan to hop on public Wi-Fi and need to stay protected.
There are a slew of VPN options to be had, but if you only plan to use it to stream the big game, you may not want to drop a ton of cash on something with excessive features. Thankfully, many of the top providers have some great deals that will net you stellar VPN service and still leave you enough money for the office Super Bowl pool.
And because each one of these VPNs come with free trials, you can easily grab one for the game and then cancel within 30 days to get your money back. And they say there's nothing in this life for free!

VPN deals: what you can do with a VPN
There are loooooads of VPN uses - getting Super Bowl coverage on your terms is just the tip of the iceberg. Virtual Private Networks allow bypass geo-restricted content. So if you wanted to watch a Netflix show that is geo-restricted to a location, a VPN changes your IP address so your device gets tricked into thinking it's in a different location. Make sure to check out our Netflix VPN guide if your primary reason for a VPN is streaming shows and movies, while they're also brilliant for letting you watch sport and shows that are only available overseas.
Some people will be more concerned about the fact VPNs help you browse the internet securely. A VPN uses encryption technology that basically means you're browsing and activity will be anonymous. So if you're worried about your cybersecurity, a VPN is definitely the way to go.
Beyond that, they help get around blocked websites and apps in countries that ban them, assist in secure online banking and shopping (especially on public Wi-Fi), and have even been known to get around broadband bandwidth throttling and bag cheaper flights on comparison sites, too.
