The Super Bowl 2024 is set to be a showdown between the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs. The Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas will host the game, which will start at 3:30pm Pacific or 6:30pm Eastern on Sunday, February 11. The game will be telecast on CBS and live-streamed on Paramount+, as they are both owned by Paramount Global. Viewers can also watch the game on cable TV, live TV streaming services, or through the NFL’s mobile app.
CBS and Nickelodeon have acquired the broadcasting rights for this year’s Super Bowl. Nickelodeon will offer a kid-friendly version of the game, complete with themed graphics and commentary from the stars of SpongeBob SquarePants and Dora the Explorer. The regular broadcast of the game will be available on CBS, CBS Sports Network, Paramount+, and the NFL+ mobile app.
Those with cable or satellite subscriptions can watch the game on their local CBS station or CBS Sports Network, provided these channels are included in their package. The game can also be streamed live on the standalone Paramount+ app, with subscription plans starting at $6 per month. A free seven-day trial is currently being offered, but it’s uncertain if this will be available closer to game day. Most live TV streaming services will also feature the game.
Viewers looking to watch the game for free can purchase an indoor digital antenna, which enables access to the local CBS affiliate’s broadcast of the game at no extra charge. This antenna also provides access to other local networks including NBC, ABC, PBS, and FOX.
The NFL+ mobile app will broadcast the Super Bowl, but this is limited to viewing on smartphones or tablets as PC access and casting aren’t supported for primetime games. The subscription fee is $7 per month and includes round-the-clock football news from the NFL Network.
The halftime show is a major draw for many, and this year’s performer is Usher, who will be releasing his latest album two days prior to the game. Reba McEntire will sing the national anthem while Post Malone will perform “America the Beautiful.”
