Who Is Playing in Super Bowl LVIII?
The San Francisco 49ers will face the Kansas City Chiefs in Las Vegas for Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday, February 11. The Chiefs are aiming to complete a rare feat by becoming the first team since the New England Patriots (2003 and 2004) to win two successive titles.

How to Watch Super Bowl LVIII in the US on Cable TV
You have a couple of different choices for watching Super Bowl LVIII on cable TV, including CBS and Nickelodeon.
CBS will broadcast the 2024 Super Bowl, and the big game will be available to watch throughout many parts of the US.
You can use a TV antenna to watch the Super Bowl, but doing so requires you to be near a broadcasting station. So, depending on where you live, that could be quite difficult.
If you can’t watch the Super Bowl on your TV, you can catch the game via the CBS website instead. Moreover, the game will be available via the CBS Sports app.

You can also watch Super Bowl LVIII on Nickelodeon, which you might find is an ideal option if you have kids. Nickelodeon’s Super Bowl coverage will have a more children-oriented focus, with popular cartoon characters like SpongeBob SquarePants forming the coverage team.
The 2024 Super Bowl will be the first time that a kids-focused version of the big game has taken place.
However, Nickelodeon has experimented with this kind of coverage in the past, including for the Las Vegas Raiders’ 20-14 win against the Chiefs on Christmas Day in 2023.

How to Stream Super Bowl LVIII in the US
If you don’t want to watch the Super Bowl on cable TV, don’t worry. You have plenty of alternative options to enjoy live coverage of the game.
Paramount+ is the easiest way to stream Super Bowl LVIII if you don’t want to watch the game via cable. If you only want to watch the Super Bowl, you can consider using Paramount+’s free seven-day trial.

Hulu+ Live TV
Hulu + Live TV is another choice for watching the Super Bowl, with plans starting at $75.99/month for all the Hulu + Live TV channels.
While Hulu has a free trial for its main streaming services, you can’t get a free trial for Hulu + Live TV. Therefore, this option is a better choice if you’re a big sports fan and would use your subscription after the Super Bowl has concluded.

Whether you’re a year-round NFL fan or you prefer just tuning into the biggest games, you have plenty of options for watching the 2024 Super Bowl.
