How to Stream the Super Bowl (and Everything You Need to Know Before the Big Game)
If you’re wondering how to stream the Super Bowl, you’ve come to the right place. We compiled a foolproof guide to watching the big game, so you know when and where to stream. That way, you won’t find yourself scrolling through the TV guide only to realize you don’t have CBS in your cable package. (Been there, hate that.)
The Super Bowl LV will be played in Florida at Raymond James Stadium (home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers). In compliance with coronavirus safety guidelines, around 22,000 fans will be allowed to attend the game in person, where they’ll watch the Buccaneers face off against the Kansas City Chiefs. During last year’s matchup, around 102 million people tuned into the virtual broadcast, so it’s a pretty big deal.

2. What time is Super Bowl LV Kickoff?
Super Bowl LV will take place on Sunday, February 7. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT, so mark your calendars.
As for the pre-game activities, Amanda Gorman (who made headlines after her speech at the inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris) will recite a poetry verse. The reading will honor three Americans—Los Angeles educator Trimaine Davis, Florida nurse manager Suzie Dorner and Marine veteran James Martin—for their dedicated work during the coronavirus pandemic.
3. Where will Super Bowl LV be held?
As mentioned above, the Super Bowl will be played at Raymond James Stadium. The location shouldn’t be confused with Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, which is where last year’s game took place between the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs.
4. Who will perform during the halftime show?
The Weeknd will follow in the footsteps of Jennifer Lopez and Shakira by headlining the 2021 Super Bowl halftime show. In a statement, the musician revealed that it’s a dream come true to perform at the Super Bowl.
“We all grow up watching the world’s biggest acts playing the Super Bowl and one can only dream of being in that position. I’m humbled, honored and ecstatic to be the center of that infamous stage this year,” he said, according to Deadline.
There’s no word on what time The Weeknd’s performance will begin, but since a typical Super Bowl game lasts around four hours, we expect the halftime show to start around 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
5. Who will sing the national anthem?
For the first time ever, Eric Church and Jazmine Sullivan will team up to sing the national anthem ahead of the Super Bowl. During the pregame show, H.E.R. will also perform a rendition of “America the Beautiful.”
