Why shouldn't pigs play in the Super Bowl...because they'll hog the ball.

Are you wondering if you can watch the Super Bowl on CBS? CBS is a great channel that lets you watch entertaining shows and all your favorite sports, from hockey to basketball, to football. Super Bowl LVII will feature Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles against MVP Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas Chiefs in what should be one of the best Super Bowls in recent history. So then, can you watch the Super Bowl on CBS, or will you need to invest in another streaming service? Here is everything you need to know about watching the Super Bowl on CBS.

Will the Super Bowl Stream on CBS?

Unfortunately, you will not be able to watch the Super Bowl on CBS or its affiliate streaming service Paramount Plus. The NFL typically airs its games on CBS, which is why you can watch regular and post-season games on your local CBS channel. However, Super Bowl LVII will be broadcast on Fox because they own the rights to air it in 2023. Fox is not affiliated with CBS or Paramount Plus, and neither platform offers a live channel package outside its platform. This is a massive bummer for NFL fans, but you do have options available, so you don’t miss out on the action.

Where Can I Watch the Super Bowl?

You can watch the Super Bowl on any streaming platform that offers a live television service package that includes Fox. Here are the best examples of popular streaming platforms with Fox included in their packages:

  • Hulu + Live TV
  • YouTube TV
  • Sling TV
  • FuboTV

Most streaming services offer free trials and discounts, so now is the best time to subscribe if you need to change which streaming service provider you use since the NFL season is over. Otherwise, setting up a watch party with family or friends who have access to Fox will be your next best option for watching the Super Bowl. Who doesn’t love an excuse for an impromptu Super Bowl party?

Super Bowl LVII is Sunday, February 12, 2023, and will air on Fox at 6:30 PM Eastern.
