Super Bowl LVII is being played at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, at 6:30PM ET on February 12th, with the Kansas City Chiefs facing off against the Philadelphia Eagles.
No matter what you use to watch it, the Super Bowl should be a fun and exciting event, whether you’re more interested in the star-studded halftime game (featuring nine-time Grammy winner Rihanna), the commercials, or — surprise! — the game itself. We’ve got the info you need about how, when, and where. And as more information becomes available about entertainers, ads, and other cool stuff, we’ll continue to bring you updates.
As it did in 2020, Fox will be capturing the game in 1080p HD with HDR; the network will then upscale the feed to 4K — so if you have a 4K TV set or a compatible streaming device, you’ll see an improved broadcast (and hopefully less compression), but something that’s not quite as sharp as if it were captured natively in 4K. However, if you’re an Xfinity X1 cable customer, you can also watch the game in Dolby Vision HDR, although it’s less clear what that will be able to add. The Verge’s Chris Welch is following up on this, and we’ll offer more info as it comes.
What time will the Super Bowl start?
Kickoff is at 6:30PM ET on February 12th, which is 5:30PM CT, 4:30PM MT, and 3:30PM PT, but there’s sure to be plenty of Super Bowl-related programming ahead of the show.

Squarespace offers a satire of the typical actor promotional video with Adam Driver — or, rather, with Adam Driver and Adam Driver and Adam Driver and…
Spoofing the film Caddyshack, a group of famous actors and sports stars enjoy themselves at the fictional Bushwood Country Club.
