There are plenty of things to keep in mind for Super Bowl LVII, such as where you can watch, where the teams are playing, the halftime performer, and more. As of now, we don’t know what teams will play the big game, but Super Wild Card Weekend began on Saturday, January 14; this is when the top teams in the NFL enter the playoffs. The current top teams include the Cincinnati Bengals, the San Francisco 49ers, the Buffalo Bills, and the Kansas City Chiefs.
Let’s get into everything you need to know for Super Bowl LVII.
When and Where is Super Bowl LVII
Super Bowl LVII is available through FOX, and it’s scheduled for Sunday, February 12, 2023, at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Kickoff is at 4:30 p.m. (MST).
Super Bowl LVII will be the first to play in Arizona since the Patriots win against the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX. In addition, the first Super Bowl played in Arizona happened on January 28, 1996, between the Cowboys and Steelers in the Sun Devil Stadium.
How to Watch Super Bowl LVII
There are various ways you can watch the Super Bowl in 2023; as long as you have access to FOX, you’re all set. For the Spanish-speaking community, watch Super Bowl LVII on FOX Deportes; the network includes Spanish-language commentary. Although, keep an eye out for future games because CBS, NBC, ABC, and FOX have a rotation on which network broadcasts the game.
You shouldn’t have trouble finding FOX as it’s widely available among most cable, satellite, and live TV streaming services. Likewise, FOX Deportes is also widely available, but sometimes a subscription to a TV plan is needed to access it.
Most people skip this option, but it’s still available. With a digital antenna, you can access Super Bowl LVII and other media if you’re close to a FOX broadcast network. With this, FOX Deportes is unavailable. If you’re entertaining this option, a digital antenna typically costs between $20-$60, and plenty are 4K-capable.
