Another Super Bowl and another year of the Kelce brothers, Travis and Jason, making headlines both within and outside NFL circles - and this time it's been supersized by music megastar Taylor Swift.
The Kelces made history by both playing in last year's Super Bowl, with Travis' Kansas City Chiefs beating Jason's Philadelphia Eagles - after a week their mother Donna dominated in terms of media coverage while talking about her sons.
In the 12 months since then, the brothers have had their own Amazon Prime documentary, they've both appeared on Saturday Night Live and their New Heights podcast, already growing in popularity, exploded thanks to a certain blossoming new romance - ending 2023 as the sixth biggest podcast in the United States., external
For all the headlines they create off the field, on the field the pair continued to excel. They are both Super Bowl winners and future Hall of Fame entrants as two of the best players we have seen in their respective positions.

Super Bowl 58: Can Mahomes chase down Brady?
Las Vegas will host Super Bowl 58 in its new billion-dollar, sustainably powered Allegiant Stadium. The venue holds 70,000 people, but if you’re not one of them and American football is your thing (or you just like the buzzy commercials and want to see Usher perform at halftime) you’ll need a way to watch at home. Luckily, there are a multitude of ways to do so — and one of them is nearly free. Kick off happens Sunday, February 11, at 3:30pm Pacific (6:30pm Eastern) so you have some more time to decide how you want to watch the big game. Here are all the ways to watch Super Bowl 2024.
How to watch Super Bowl 58
This year, the rights to air the biggest annual sporting event in the US goes to CBS… and Nickelodeon. Yep, the kids channel is hosting a live, family-friendly version of the event, complete with helpful thematic graphics and the cast of SpongeBob SquarePants and Dora the Explorer hosting, providing commentary and explaining the rules to the youngest NFL fans. If you don’t need sideline reports from Sandy Cheeks, regular versions of the game will appear on CBS, CBS Sports Network, Paramount+ and on the NFL+ mobile app.
How to watch the Super Bowl with cable or satellite TV
Cable and satellite subscribers can tune into their local CBS station. If your plan includes CBS Sports Network (or Nickelodeon), you can go that route, too. Here’s a list of local CBS stations and affiliates so you can find your channel.
How to stream Super Bowl 2024
Last year, the Super Bowl was a little more complicated to stream since the broadcaster (Fox) didn’t have an over-the-top streaming app. It’s easier this year: the standalone Paramount+ app lets subscribers watch the game live. Plans start at $6 per month and there’s currently a free seven-day trial, but there’s no telling if that deal will still be live right before the big event. Of course, most live TV streaming services will also have the game, either on your local CBS station or via CBSSN. Here are the providers that will show Super Bowl LVIII:
YouTube with Live TV - $73 per month
Hulu with Live TV - $77 per month
Fubo - $80 per month
DirecTV Stream (CBS and Nickelodeon) - $80 per month
Philo (Nickelodeon only) - $25 per month
If you’re willing to pay, Paramount+ is the cheapest way to stream the Super Bowl this year, plus you’ll get other shows to watch when the game’s over.
Can I watch the 2024 Super Bowl for free?
Almost. If you buy an indoor digital antenna, which hooks up to the coaxial port on your TV set, you can grab the game broadcast from your local CBS affiliate at no extra cost. It’ll let you watch your local NBC, ABC, PBS and FOX networks, too.
Can I watch the 2024 Super Bowl on mobile?
The NFL+ mobile app is airing the Super Bowl, but only on your smartphone or tablet (PC access and casting isn’t supported for primetime games, which includes the Super Bowl). So if you’re watching solo, this could be a good option. A subscription goes for $7 per month and it also provides NFL Network content with 24/7 football news.
Who is performing at the Super Bowl 2024 halftime show?
For some, the action in between the two halves of the game is what really matters. Mega stars have headlined the halftime show for decades now, with performances by Rihanna, Shakira, Lady Gaga, Prince, The Rolling Stones and Beyonce garnering almost as many headlines as the game itself. This year, Usher, who's timing the release of his latest album to drop just two days before the game, will light up the stadium with a set. Before the game, Reba McEntire will sing the national anthem and Post Malone will follow that up with a rendition of "America the Beautiful."
The Super Bowl LVIII is taking over Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, marking the first time the iconic football event will be taking place in Sin City. With that being said, the events set to go down in the days leading up to the Big Game are sure to be just as fun as the match-up itself.
It was announced back in September that Usher would be headlining the 2024 Super Bowl Halftime Show presented by Apple Music, during the game set to take place Feb. 11, 2024. This year will mark the fifth year of the partnership between the NFL and Roc Nation to produce the Halftime Show, after a deal struck in 2019. “It’s an honor of a lifetime to finally check a Super Bowl performance off my bucket list. I can’t wait to bring the world a show unlike anything else they’ve seen from me before,” Usher said in a statement. “Thank you to the fans and everyone who made this opportunity happen. I’ll see you real soon.”
Usher also announced that his ninth album, Coming Home, will arrive arriving on Super Bowl Sunday. This set marks his first new album since 2016’s Hard II Love, which peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard 200.
Leading up to the game, countless music stars will be attending and performing at incredible events and parties, many of which are open to the public or have tickets available.
See below for every Super Bowl party and event this year.
Travis is back in a fourth Super Bowl in five years and broke some big play-off records in getting to Super Bowl 58 against the San Francisco 49ers in Las Vegas, while centre Jason fell just a couple of games short of a rematch but produced another dominant season with the Eagles.
Off the field, the pair have transcended the world of NFL and moved into the news and entertainment sphere - and not just because of Travis' high-profile relationship with Swift.
Jason was all over social media when he went to watch his brother play the Buffalo Bills, drinking with home fans before the game and picking this first meeting with Swift to go shirtless in the stadium and climb out of his box and into the crowd for pictures.
The 36-year-old was also named as one of People magazine's sexiest men of the year, external for 2023 - which Travis reacted to in typical brotherly fashion on their podcast.
"You're one of the ugliest people I've ever seen in my life, so this actually threw me off," the Chiefs tight end joked.
They're the hottest sporting siblings in the US right now, and the Super Bowl could be yet another boost to their growing profile.

The Taylor Swift effect - is it good for the NFL?
"Having the Taylor Swift effect is also a positive," said NFL commissioner Roger Goodell before the Super Bowl in Las Vegas. "She knows great entertainment, and I think that's why I think she loves NFL football."
Goodell, who also laughed off conspiracy theories about the relationship being scripted, will nevertheless be delighted with the impact Swift has had in terms of bringing in a newer, younger audience - and a big increase in female viewers.
"I think it's great to have her a part of it," Goodell added. "Obviously, it creates a buzz. It creates another group of young fans, particularly young women - that are interested in seeing, 'Why is she going to this game? Why is she interested in this game?'
"Besides Travis, she is a football fan, and I think that's great for us."
It's also been great for Travis Kelce's popularity, as he made Google's 2023 trending list, external and saw sales of his Chiefs replica jersey take a 400% spike, external after Swift was first spotted at one of his games.
"Taylor has an unbelievable fanbase that follows her and supports her throughout her life," Kelce said in Las Vegas. "It's been fun to kind of gather the Swifties into Chiefs Kingdom and open them up to the football world and the sports world."

Having one of the biggest stars on the planet attending games regularly has also boosted the overall ratings - with eight of the nine regular season Chiefs games Swift attended ranking among the top 100 most viewed TV broadcasts in the US of 2023, according to Nielsen.
It was perhaps no coincidence that the Chiefs' game against the Miami Dolphins was picked for the NFL's first play-off game to be exclusively streamed on Peacock, and no surprise when, with Swift attending, it resulted in what NBC called the "most-streamed live event in US history" with an audience of 23 million.
There have been critics of course, with complaints about how much Swift is shown on TV coverage during games, but in reality the 14-time Grammy Awards winner usually only makes an appearance for a matter of seconds within a three-hour game.
The 34-year-old was on screen for a combined total of two minutes and 12 seconds, external during Kansas City's three play-off games - with notably over a minute of that in the streamed game targeted at a younger audience.

After her latest success at the Grammys, Kelce is being spurred on to match Swift by lifting the Lombardi Trophy.
"She's rewriting the history books herself," Kelce said. "I told her I'd have to hold up my end of the bargain and come home with some hardware, too."
So Chiefs fans will also hopes she makes it, as will the NFL, as the Super Bowl could break all kinds of viewing and social media records if one of the biggest global icons makes an appearance in Las Vegas.
And the stats would suggest that Kelce plays better with Swift watching on. He averages more catches and more yards in the 12 games Swift has seen than the six she has not, while five of his eight touchdowns, all three of his 100-yard games and his only two-touchdown game have all come with her in the stadium.
Will Swift make the Super Bowl?
Ultimately what will grow Travis Kelce's status even further is adding a third Super Bowl title on Sunday, but whether Swift will make it or not is already one of the big topics around the game, like it or not.
Swift is performing in Tokyo on Saturday evening so all eyes will be on whether she can make the long trip in time - with even the Japanese embassy in the US, external posting about the journey on social media.
