    I believe I read somewhere that verizon is not allowing the streaming of the superbowl because of some sort of broadcast rights or what not. So I was wondering if there was a way to stream the Superbowl on an android phone or through said android phone's hotspot on a laptop.

    I'm sure if you use a 3rd party hotspot it's possible rather than using verizons hotspot.

    I've heard Verizon has made it to where you can't use foxfi and other hotspot apps. Not sure about that though.

    Yeah, they banned all streaming of the game while inside the stadium.

    Verizon set up the network at the stadium.

    Unless something changed within the last 48 hours (since it was the last time i used foxfi for a hotspot) Foxfi still works for me. But i can easily hop on the hotspot deal for free but I have been lazy and have foxfi so I always tell myself why bother.

    hats what I initially though but I was like why the hell would someone want to watch something streamed when it is right in front of them.

    Replays, or live when the action is at the other end of the stadium.

    Or they're sitting in the nosebleed sections or seats with an obstructed view.
