There are more ways than ever to watch the Super Bowl in 2016. With streaming devices, mobile apps, online streams and more, viewers have a plethora of options to catch the game. Well, theoretically. Those options need to work for that to be possible.
CBS is airing the Super Bowl on TV and some viewers are having a hard time accessing the stream of the game. A lot of viewers, actually. For many, it looks something like this.

At one point in time, nearly everyone watched the game on TV, so the streaming service being down wouldn't be a problem. That is no longer the case, with a wide array of people relying on the stream in order to watch the game. The problem appears to be the servers hosting the stream, not the stream itself. If a viewer was able to get in and get access, they likely have a great working stream. Those trying to gain access now are having issues that might not go away unless CBS is able to fix its server issues.
Some people are very upset about it.
@CBSSports class action suit coming your way. Fix this for God sake !— Noah (@noah0692) February 7, 2016
