How to watch and stream the game online

It’s the weekend where sports fans, foodies, music fans and movie buffs can all come together for incredibly different reasons. Sure, there’s a football game between (I’m sorry, I had to look that up) the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals, but more importantly, Mary J. Blige will kill the scene with Dr Dre , Kendrick Lamar, and more hip-hop titans plus plenty of movie and TV trailers — and hopefully some great appetizers (maybe Totino pizza rolls) at your friend’s Super Bowl party to top it all off. Here’s how to log in.

First option: find a friend
Now the first option, and perhaps the easiest, is to have cable or at least have a friend with cable who is up for a little Super Bowl party. Drinks on you! The show will air on NBC with a kickoff at 6:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, February 13. Be sure to arrive on time to see Mickey Guyton sing the national anthem.

Second option: broadcast it live
If you don’t have cable, you’re still in luck, because streaming is definitely an option. As with the Winter Olympics, Peacock will also livestream the Super Bowl (and its Premium Membership is only five dollars a month). But if you prefer another live TV option, any of the services with NBC should do the job; many live sports streaming services are available. Be sure to check out the free trials. Sling offers a three-day free trial, Fubo TV and Hulu + Live TV offer a full week, and YouTube TV offers a full 14 days.
