NEW YORK (AP) — If you want to watch the Super Bowl, you won’t have to be planted in front of a big screen to do it.

Thanks to online streaming, you can catch the game on a smartphone of tablet.

Fox says it will offer free access to all users on computers and tablets through its app for the NFL title game.

That continues a tradition that started with the last two Super Bowls — which were streamed on NBC, then on CBS.

Those streams were available through web browsers. This will be the first time the big game will be streamed through an app.
