Halftime Show]]~ 2024 Super Bowl free live stream: How to watch 49ers vs. Chiefs
Super Bowl Halftime show 2024 CBS will stream the game on Paramount+, as well as on CBS.com and the CBS Sports app for viewers logging in through their TV provider.
The Super Bowl is the most-watched TV event every year. Naturally, fans expect pageantry, celebrity appearances, and gobs of entertainment.
Super Bowl LVIII looks like it will bring all of that and more. The Kansas City Chiefs will defend their title and attempt to become the first team to win back-to-back championships since the New England Patriots in Super Bowls XXXVIII and XXXIX. (Ahem, that's 2004 and 2005.) They'll play the San Francisco 49ers, arguably the best regular season team this year, led by the NFL's best running back, Christian McCaffrey.
There's also Usher's halftime show, celebrity-drenched Super Bowl commercials, and probably more than one cutaway to Taylor Swift (if she makes it on time).
Here's everything you need to know about how to watch the 2024 Super Bowl.
When is the Super Bowl?
The 2024 Super Bowl will take place on Sunday, Feb. 11. The game starts at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT, but there will be plenty of pre-game analysis and festivities for anyone tuning in early.
Where will Super Bowl LVIII be held?
The Super Bowl location is chosen years in advance, making every Super Bowl a neutral site game. The 2024 Super Bowl will go down at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, the home field of the Las Vegas Raiders. The team moved from Oakland to Las Vegas in 2020, and this will be the first time a Super Bowl has been held in Las Vegas or anywhere in the state of Nevada.
How to watch Super Bowl LVIII
This year's game will be broadcast on CBS, with a 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT start time. There will also be an alternate way to watch for the first time in NFL history. Nickelodeon will simultaneously broadcast a family-friendly version of the game.
Streamers also have options. CBS will stream the game on Paramount+, as well as on CBS.com and the CBS Sports app for viewers logging in through their TV provider.
Who is playing the Super Bowl Halftime Show?
Usher is headlining the Apple Music Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show. The R&B legend was on that stage once before, when he appeared as a guest during the Black Eyed Peas' performance at Super Bowl XLV. The "My Boo" singer says he views this performance as the culmination of his Las Vegas residency, which ran for two years and concluded in late 2023.
Usher, who called the gig the "honor of a lifetime," has not divulged many details about what to expect. However, EW has confirmed that Usher will have a longer halftime show than previous ones, with a full 15 minutes of stage time. Nonetheless, it's not yet clear if he'll perform alone, as Rihanna did last year, or have a litany of guest stars, as many headliners have done over the years.
Is there a pre-show performance at the Super Bowl?
There is not a concert ahead of the game. However, several big names will be belting out songs, including a national anthem sung by country music icon Reba McEntire.
Before Reba puts a period on the pre-game festivities, Post Malone will perform "America the Beautiful" and Andra Day will sing "Lift Every Voice and Sing." And that's not all. Kaskade is set to be the Super Bowl's first-ever in-game DJ, spinning tunes during team warm-ups and "featured breaks" throughout the game. Tiësto was originally slated for the gig, but the Grammy-winning DJ had to drop out this week due to a family emergency.
Will Taylor Swift be at the Super Bowl?
It's a question a lot of people are asking, given Swift's very public romance with Chiefs' tight end Travis Kelce, and the fact that she's been spotted at a lot of Kansas City's games this season. (Anyone watching a game when she's there knows she's in the building from the deluge of reaction shots she gets!)
