Last year we saw the New England Patriots once again make NFL history with their 11th Super Bowl win - Tom Brady and co will be pretty confident that they'll be playing at Super Bowl LIV in February. Whether they do or don’t, you’ll be able to catch all the action as it's really easy to get a Super Bowl 2020 live stream - no matter where in the world you are. And with our help, you can even watch without having to sit through the commercials.

Perhaps the Patriots will continuously break records, or maybe it’ll be the impressive Kansas City Chiefs who’ll grab the championship rings in 2019. Other favorites to make it to the big one are the undefeated San Francisco 49ers. They won the Super Bowl 24 years ago at Miami Gardens - the same venue as this time around. Things are not looking so good for the Miami Dolphins however, with a rough start this season it’s seeming pretty unlikely that they’ll make the game in their home city. 

Either way, no one knows yet for sure - with four more months to go all we can say is that all bets are off. Keep reading to find out all the information you need to know for the Super Bowl 2020 and where to live stream the event, whether you live in the US, the UK or anywhere else in the world.
