Can you smell the beer and potato chips in the air? The NFL Playoffs are underway, and we’re merely days away from Super Bowl 2022. But with so much anticipation over who’s playing the game, it’s easy to lose track of the logistics of how to actually watch it. Lucky for you, we’re here to help.
When is Super Bowl 2022?
Super Bowl LVI is happening on February 13 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
What time is the Super Bowl?
The kickoff time for the Super Bowl is 3:30 p.m. PT/6:30 p.m. E.T. If you’re just tuning in for the halftime show, that should start a bit after 8 p.m. E.T., but it’s determined by the game so you’ll have to sit in for a bit and wait either way.
Where can I watch the Super Bowl?
Usually NBC, CBS, and Fox rotate showing the Super Bowl, and this year you can watch it live on NBC. But don’t worry, cord cutters, you can watch it online too, on Peacock or with a live TV streaming subscription on services like Hulu and YouTube.
What about the ads—how can I watch those?
Ah yes, the one time of the year we do not want to skip the commercials. Though the ads will air throughout the game breaks, you can watch teasers for some commercials online already, like Megan Thee Stallion’s Flamin’ Hot Cheetos ad. Brands like Lay’s (which will seemingly team up with Seth Rogen), Irish Spring, Budweiser, and BMW will all have ads during the big night. Adweek also has a handy (but paywalled) guide to all the Super Bowl ads coming in 2022.
What else do I need to know about the Super Bowl?
As of now, we don’t know which teams will head to the Super Bowl. On January 30, the Cincinnati Bengals play against the Kansas City Chiefs for the AFC Championship game. Then, the San Francisco 49ers will play against the Los Angeles Rams. The teams that win their respective games will end up playing Super Bowl LVI.
