Ah, Super Bowl Sunday: A day to gather around the television and watch commercials football (or run errands in peace if football isn't your thing). But thanks to a streaming arrangement between Fox and the NFL, you'll be able to stream Super Bowl XLVIII for free.

This is actually the third year that the NFL has offered a free stream of the big game, and you have a couple options for streaming the game, so don't think you have to spend Super Sunday tethered to your laptop.

If you've got a smartphone through Verizon, you can watch the game through the NFL Mobile app, available in iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry versions.
