Super Bowl LVIII: How to watch the Chiefs v. 49ers

MIAMI, FLORIDA, USA, JANUARY, 20. 2020: Super Bowl LIV, the 54th Super Bowl,Kansas City Chiefs vs. The San Francisco 49ers at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami NFL Trophy silhouette

It’s Super Bowl Sunday, and you know what that means – football, parties, a must-see halftime show, and expensive commercials. There will also, no doubt, be lots of betting on who’s going to win and even how many times the network shows Taylor Swift.

If you weren’t lucky enough to snag a $12,000 ticket (down now to around $8,600 as of Wednesday), then chances are good you’re among the millions worldwide who will be tuning in on TV.

Where to watch

The Super Bowl will air live on CBS and the network’s streaming service, Paramount+. Kickoff is at 6:30 p.m. ET. CBS is airing seven hours of pre-game show content ahead of the big game. And, of course, that’s what it’s all about – the big game.

The defending champion Chiefs face off against the 49ers at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. San Francisco will be seeking to avenge their 31-20 loss to Kansas City in 2020 at the Super Bowl in Miami.

What to watch

Besides those $7 million commercials, here are some other things you should watch for:

Before the game: Country music star Reba McEntire will sing the national anthem, Oscar nominee Andra Day will perform “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” and Post Malone will sing “America the Beautiful.”

Halftime performer: Usher, baby! Following his own Vegas residency, which ran from the summer of 2022 through last December, his halftime set at this year’s Super Bowl will also launch a new album called “Coming Home,” his first solo record in more than seven years.

But wait, there’s more! For the first time, there will be an in-game DJ. The NFL announced that Tiësto will perform a DJ set before the game while the players warm up and fans arrive. He will then stay as the in-game DJ and play during featured breaks.
