It’s finally here And let’s be perfectly honest — it’s not all that hard to watch the Super Bowl. It’s not tucked away on some unheard-of streaming service. It’s not the seventh alternate channel of where you’d normally find the game. In fact, it’s been pretty difficult to avoid at this point.
No, Super Bowl LVII — scheduled for February 12, 2023, in Glendale, Arizona — will be available on Fox. It’s that simple, and you’re welcome. And Fox is available anywhere and everywhere that you can get cable, satellite, or streaming TV. It’s a broadcast network. It’s all over the place.
Where you might need a little help is with the edge cases. Maybe you’re one of the forward-looking folks who have gotten rid of traditional methods of watching TV. Or perhaps you want to watch Super Bowl LVII in the best quality possible.
Who’s playing in Super Bowl LVII?
Finally. We’ve got our two teams set to face off in Super Bowl 2023. After 18 weeks of regular-season games, the Wild Card round, the Divisional rounds, then finally the Conference Championships, it’s the Kansas City Chiefs taking on the Philadelphia Eagles. The oddsmakers said such a Super Bowl was likely, and that’s what we’re getting. Speaking of the odds, this one’s basically a toss-up. Everyone’s looking for both teams to score a bunch of points, so really the betting is going to come down to the spread.
And no, we’re not here to argue the quality of the refs leading into this final game. It’s time to let that go. But we fully reserve the right to complain if things get squirrelly.
And while technically it isn’t part of the game itself, don’t forget about the Super Bowl halftime show. Apple Music is the title sponsor, so you know it’ll be good. But that’s just the table stakes. None other than Rihanna is headlining, so there’s a good possibility that this will quickly become one of the best halftime shows ever
What time is the Super Bowl?
Technically the Super Bowl kicks off at 6:30 p.m. ET. That’s 3:30 p.m. on the West Coast. But Fox’s broadcast actually starts at 11 a.m. Eastern time, which is crazy early. But those ads aren’t going to sell themselves. This marks the 10th Super Bowl on Fox, by the way.
And if you really want to do the math, that makes seven-and-a-half hours of pre-game TV before anything actually happens.
How to stream Super Bowl LVII if you don’t have cable
The good news about watching the Super Bowl is that it’s available pretty much everywhere. Legally. That’s true for streaming, just as it is for more terrestrial methods of watching the game.

Watch Super Bowl 2023 with a VPN
If you’re in the U.S., it’s basically a cinch to watch the Super Bowl. But if you’re outside the country — long-term or just temporarily — you might need a little help getting back to your viewing method of choice. For that, we have VPNs.
A virtual private network essentially is a tunnel that, well, tunnels all of your internet traffic through a specific set of servers in a specific country (that’s the important part!) before arriving at the end destination. In addition to adding a layer of security so that no unencrypted traffic is visible to outsiders, a VPN also makes it appear as if your computer or phone or whatever is back in your home country.
