With the help of VPN one can avoid this blocking of the contents and in doing so none will be able to know the where about of the user. VPN works by creating a special network through the server and one should know that this private network will convert all the personal information and even one’s IP address will not be known to anyone. It will be impossible to know the streaming channels.
With the Fox Sports Go App or NBC Sports App, you can also stream the match on your Smartphone, Tablets or other supported devices.

- Express VPN – This is the top VPN considered as of now in order to stream the 52nd Super Bowl 2018 live from the US. If one is eager for uninterrupted viewing experience then Express VPN is the best option. The privacy of the user is highly protected and encryption is the best. One can very conveniently download and use this private network. Their customer support team is wonderful and they are available 24 X 7. If one gets stuck anywhere, the team will be there to support and guide fully. At present, they serve more than 96 countries and they have a 30-day cash back option.
- IP Vanish – This is another VPN with the help of which one can get connected to the match even if the user is in remote places. One should know that Express VPN is not accessible in remote places. Here it is IP Vanish that will give support even if it is interrupted. This is also a very fast network and it will get one connected to any part of the world because they have substantial servers. The server has a huge amount of unlimited bandwidth which helps one to watch the replay even if one misses the live show of the match and the halftime show. The software is highly compatible with Windows, Linus, Mac, and Android but not with iOS.
- HideMyAss– This VPN service is not at par with the other two. Though it has enough bandwidth it is very slow in streaming and it is always found buffering whenever one streams any show. One can opt for this VPN for Super Bowl but streaming will not be seamless. Regular buffering might occur. This VPN serves in more than 150 locations in the world with a large number of servers but still, they are behind due to the quality. The connectivity quality is very poor.

|Date||4th February 2017|

About U.S. Bank Stadium, Minneapolis

Super Bowl 2018 Half Time Show
One of the major attractions of Super Bowl remains to be its halftime show. Pepsi’s Super Bowl Half-Time Show is the most-watched musical event so far. Last year’s show was the most-watched musical event across all platforms. It garnered a reach of over 150 million unique people, with 80 million views and in all 260 minutes watched.
This time the onus is on Justin Timberlake to hog the limelight at the Pepsi Super Bowl LII Halftime Show at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota on Sunday, Feb. 4, 2018. The ten-time Grammy award winner will be performing at the Halftime Show for the third time and will eventually become the only star to do so. He previously played at Super Bowl XXXV and Super Bowl XXXVIII.
His name was always in the rumors and hardly surprised anyone when it got finalized. Though there were a few controversial pop-ups here and there, it all settled down in time. The biggest of them was still Janet Jackson. Anybody old enough to remember watching the Halftime Show of Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004 need not be reminded of the ‘Nipplegate’. Though Justin Timberlake was at the helm of it, Janet Jackson was the one who had to face the brunt of it. It will be perfect redemption for him if he manages to get this Half Time show lit up without a single flashback of the Nipplegate.
