Millions of Americans will get a tad bit closer to their couches this weekend, as the Super Bowl airs Sunday night from Santa Clara, CA’s Levi’s Stadium. Whether you’re watching for the good of the game or for the commercials, here’s how you can celebrate this American tradition.
How to Tune In
CBS will be live-streaming the broadcast on their website for any device with a web browser. If you have a Roku, Apple TV, Xbox One, or Android TV, you can watch the telecast from the CBS Sports app available in your respective app store.
Mobile users can also grab the Super Bowl telecast on their Android or iOS device with their own CBS Sports apps.
Of course, you can also watch the game on your local CBS station.
When to Tune In
The answer for when you should tune in depends on the type of fan you are. If you’re a diehard football fan that just wants to avoid the 17-hour pregame hypefest extravaganza (looking at you, NBC), you should probably tune in right around kickoff (6:30 p.m. ET Sunday).
However, if the commercials are more your thing, you might want to wait a couple of minutes after kickoff before tuning in. Usually, there’s a commercial break right after the first play of the game.
Enjoy your Super Bowl weekend. Workaholic returns next week with an expose on the pencil (I’m kidding). Until then, you can follow me around the Interwebs (where I will be sharing my thoughts on American sport’s biggest spectacle and anything else that intrigues me).
