CNET News Video: Tech tips for enjoying the big game

1:02 /

The big game is just a few days away. Whether you're rooting for the Seahawks or Broncos, there are some techie methods for following along that could make this year's big match-up more fun. CNET's Kara Tsuboi reports in this Tech Minute.

-For starters, download the free CBS Sports app on to your iPhone or android. It's basically a one-stop shopping for all things sports related. For example, choose NFL and not only get the score update. Read news and watch videos about the teams and players and see all the current tweets that are talking about the game. And speaking of tweets, last year, more than 24 million tweets were sent during the Superbowl. Be part of the action of this year by following along the teams and players in the big contest. If you're the betting type, but don't have access to a sports book, check out insticator.com. It's a new website that allows TV watchers to make predictions about anything that happens on TV including sports. The more correct picks you make, the more points and then prices you rack up. And finally, if you happen to be away from home or a traditional TV, certain cable subscribers can stream the team and commercials and half-time show through Fox Network's mobile site and app, FoxSportsGo. If you're not a subscriber, well, you're out of luck. In San Francisco, I'm Kara Tsuboi, cnet.com, for CBS News.
