How to watch Super Bowl 2022 on Amazon Fire TV

The biggest sporting event in the United States is back! And Super Bowl 2022 is gearing up to be another great one, if the early rounds of the playoffs are any indication.

This year’s game — also known as Super Bowl LVI, of those who prefer Roman numerals — is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 PT on Sunday, February 13. It’s being broadcast by NBC, which gives pretty much anyone easy access. But that also means you’ve got all kinds of options for watching the game, from streaming, to cable, to over-the-air.

One of the more popular options again this year, though, will be Amazon Fire TV, thanks to its low-cost dongles and affordable Amazon Fire TV, uh, TVs. Here’s how to get the job done.

The Amazon Alexa Voice Remote provides quick access to Streaming services.

By the way, Super Bowl LVI will pit the Cincinnati Bengals against the L.A. Rams. It’s the first Super Bowl for the Bengals since 1989, and the third in franchise history. (They also lost in 1982.) The L.A. Rams won Super Bowl XXXIV in 1999, lost a couple years later to Tom Brady and the Patriots, and again in 2019. So this should get interesting.

How to watch Super Bowl 2022 on Amazon Fire TV

Whether you’ve got the low-end Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite, or the one we recommend for most folks, the Fire TV Stick 4K Max (and there’s only a $20 difference between the two), your actual experience will mostly remain the same. Yes, there are some technical differences — Fire TV Stick Lite tops out at 1080p, while the Fire TV Stick 4K Max hits 4K resolution and has support for HD and better audio.

The hardware is the easy part, though. Where you have to make some decisions when it comes to watching Super Bowl 2022 on Amazon Fire TV is in the software.

The good news is that all the major streaming services should have access to your local NBC affiliate. If you’ve already got one up and running, great. You’re ahead of the game. If you’re in need of a new streaming service, however, you’ve got options. Hulu With Live TV is the most popular service in the United States at more than 4 million paid subscribers, so you’ll be in good company there. Or if you’re looking to go the most economical route, Sling TV plans start at $35 a month and include local channels.

If neither of those are what you’re looking for, you should check out FuboTV, YouTube TV, or DirecTV Stream. Also, Super Bowl 2022 will be available on NBCUniversal’s own Peacock streaming service.

Watch Super Bowl 2022 with Amazon Fire TV Recast

If you’re already rocking Amazon Fire TV, there’s one more option that’s worth looking into. Amazon Fire TV Recast works in conjunction with an over-the-air antenna to give you an excellent addition to the core Fire TV experience. Essentially, it’s a tuner that adds live broadcast feeds to your Fire TV Experience, making it easy to see what’s on your local channels at any time. And it also includes a hard drive, so you can record those shows whenever you want.

There are a couple options here — a dual-tuner model that lets you watch two shows at once on separate devices, or a four-tuner model that doubles that. (It also has twice as much room on the hard drive for more recordings.)

Recast is a really cool addition that gives you redundancy should a streaming service go down, plus the ability to record all your local broadcasts — and that includes Super Bowl 2022.

MLB.TV will be available on Fubo this season

Fubo (née FuboTV) today announced that it's adding MLB.TV to the service in time for Opening Day on March 30. It'll cost you, though, with the optional add-on running $25 a month — the same as if you subscribed directly. But with it, you'll get every out-of-market Major League Baseball game, and the ability to replay games on demand.

Of course, you'll also need a subscription to Fubo itself, which starts at $75 a month for more than 100 channels.

Philo free trial: Stream live TV for free for a week

Philo is a live TV streaming service that gives you access to over 70 channels for the low price of $25. It's a simple cable-replacement service with a lot of your favorite channels on it, including AMC, Comedy Central, HGTV, Nickelodeon and many more. Like all the best live TV streaming services, you can get Philo on your TV by using the Smart TV app or a streaming stick like the Amazon Fire 4K. You can also use it on your laptop or phone. Philo includes unlimited free cloud-based DVR, so you can record and rewatch shows even if they haven't yet appeared on a streaming service like Netflix. You get all of this without being tethered to a cable box, and there is no contract, so you can cancel whenever you want. The service is cheap, but if you want to test it out before you buy, you can always check out the Philo free trial.

Is there a Philo free trial?
Yes, there is a Philo free trial. You can get a full week of the service completely free. You will have to enter your payment information though, so  don't forget to cancel your subscription once your trial is up if you don't intend on continuing with the service. The signup process is simple. You just have to enter your basic info (including a credit card) and confirm your account via an email. You'll be streaming live TV within five minutes. You can even use the unlimited Cloud DVR for that week, but you'll lose access to the things you recorded after your week is up.
Can you get Philo for free?
There isn't a way to get Philo for free. The service costs $25 per month, unless you use a coupon code or find a deal (more on that below). There currently aren't any sign-on bonuses or package deals that give you the service completely free, although some give you a discount. Your best bet for getting the service for free is to leverage the Philo free trial.
Are there any Philo deals?
After your Philo free trial is over, you'll be looking for a way to save some cash on the subscription. Even though $25 per month is one of the cheapest live TV streaming services out there, there are ways to make it cheaper. If you're a T-Mobile user, you can get the service for only $15. All you need is a T-Mobile or Sprint phone number. Signing up through your T-Mobile account will get you a 40% discount on the service for one full year. It will go back to $25 after that.
