When does Super Bowl LVI Start?

Super Bowl LVI kicks off on Sunday, February 13 at 6:30 p.m. ET, or 5:30 p.m. Central, 4:30 p.m. Mountain, and 3:30 p.m. Pacific. Viewers in the United Kingdom will need to tune in at 11:30 p.m.

How to Watch Super Bowl LVI for Free

NBC is broadcasting Super Bowl LVI this year, so anyone with antenna reception of a local NBC station can watch in on their TV free of charge.

If you want to watch on a phone or tablet in the U.S., you should also be access it through the NFL and Yahoo Sports apps for free.

In addition to the live broadcast on NBC, the Super Bowl will also be available to watch on several streaming platforms that offer web players or mobile apps, though you'll likely need to do a bit more work if you want to access on the big screen via ‌Apple TV‌ or other connected TV device.

For live TV streaming services, you'll need a subscription to watch the Super Bowl, but there are ways to watch it for free using service trials.

Hulu + Live TV is probably the most popular service that will get you access to the Super Bowl. If you're not prepared to pay the $70 monthly subscription, you can get a seven-day free trial before the game and cancel it after that.

The next most popular option for watching Super Bowl is probably Sling TV, which offers NBC on both its Orange and Blue packages. The packages cost $35 per month, but there's a three-day free trial you could use if you don't want to sign up.

Other options where you'll be able to watch the Super Bowl include YouTube TV, DirecTV Stream, Peacock, and FuboTV.

If you already have access to NBC via a cable or satellite provider and you want to watch Super Bowl LVI on a non-TV device, you can also authenticate with your credentials to watch on the NBC Sports app or the NBCSports.com website.

For viewers in the United Kingdom, the choice is easy: BBC has the rights to broadcast the Super Bowl, so you can download the BBC iPlayer app on iOS or ‌Apple TV‌, or tune in to the BBC iPlayer website, provided you have a TV License.
