The game, scheduled to kick off at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT, will be broadcast live on CBS and stream on Paramount+, with a kid- and family-focused simulcast on Nickelodeon and a Spanish-language broadcast on Univision in the network’s first-ever national broadcast of an NFL game. It will also be available in Spanish on Vix.
A livestream is also available on CBS through DirecTV Stream, which offers a five-day free trial. The game will also be available on mobile via NFL+.
The game is a rematch of the 2020 Super Bowl won by the Chiefs, who will be playing in their fourth Super Bowl in five years; they lost in 2021 to Tom Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers before beating the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35 last year.
That matchup drew an average of 115.1 million viewers, making it the most-watched Super Bowl across platforms of all time.
The 49ers are looking for their first Super Bowl win since 1994.
This year, the famed Super Bowl Halftime Show will be headlined by eight-time Grammy winner Usher, coming a year after Rihanna’s showcase became the most-watched of all time with more than 121 million viewers. Usher is no stranger to Las Vegas, having just wrapped residency in December that began in July 2022.
He also just dropped his new album, Coming Home, on Friday, with a slew of collaborators on it including Jung Kook, Summer Walker, 21 Savage, Burna Boy, The-Dream and H.E.R. as speculation grows about possible guests joining him onstage.
Here’s the latest trailer for the Halftime Show that dropped today:
