How to stream Super Bowl LVIII for free, without cable from Mashable

[[{“value”:”

The big question on everybody’s minds as we head towards Super Bowl LVIII is whether or not Taylor Swift will be in attendance. The second biggest question is how the heck to watch the game if you don’t pay for cable.

Yes, the official NFL team of Swiftie nation is playing in its fourth Super Bowl in five years, as the Kansas City Chiefs seek to defend last year’s title against the San Francisco 49ers. Casual viewers may or may not recall that this is a rematch of February 2020’s Super Bowl, which kicked off the Chiefs’ run of success and was also maybe the last normal thing that happened before COVID-19 hit the U.S.

The game airs on Feb. 11 at 6:30 p.m. ET.

Anyway, you’re here because you’re hosting a Super Bowl party and you need to know how to watch the game. Thankfully, it’s easy this year.

How to stream Super Bowl LVIII

If you have cable, I’m not sure why you’re reading this, but the game is on your local CBS affiliate this year. If you don’t have cable, that means there’s one app to rule them all when it comes to streaming the big game.

Paramount+

CBS owns Paramount+, and the streaming service grants access to a high quality livestream of your local CBS channel. Connect the dots and you’ll figure out that all you need to do is pony up $5.99 for one month of the service (or, if you’re lucky, you can use a 7-day free trial) and you can watch Super Bowl LVIII.

And when you’re done, you can watch Halo or something, I guess.

Live TV streaming services

In case you’re in a Brewster’s Millions situation and need to burn cash, there are more expensive ways to stream the Super Bowl. These come in the form of live TV streaming services, which are like cable except marginally less expensive. Here are a few prominent ones that get CBS:

YouTube TV: $73/mo

Hulu with Live TV: $80/mo

DirecTV Stream: $80/mo

Fubo: $80/mo

Some of these services also offer free trials, so that’s an option, as well. But your best bet is probably still Paramount+.

Go old-school

The actual cheapest way to watch the Super Bowl every year is to buy a TV antenna, which grants access to local over-the-air networks. The Super Bowl just so happens to be broadcast over-the-air on an annual basis, so this is a one-time purchase that will work every year.

Regardless of how you choose to watch the big game, I hope you’re ready for round-the-clock coverage of America’s favorite power couple.
