Super Bowl LVIII will feature MVP Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs against Brock Purdy and the San Francisco 49ers in what should be one of the best Super Bowls in recent history. So then, can you watch it on Philo, or will you need to invest in another streaming service? Here is everything you need to know about watching the Super Bowl on ESPN Plus.

Will the Super Bowl Stream on ESPN Plus?

Unfortunately, you will not be able to watch the Super Bowl on ESPN Plus. Even though ESPN Plus is owned by the said company that owns Hulu (Disney), it is an entirely separate package that doesn’t include access to live channels like CBS. Super Bowl LVIII will be broadcast on CBS, which is not affiliated with Disney or ESPN Plus, because they have the right to do so. 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 CBS. To ensure you can watch Super Bowl LVIII, choose a streaming platform that you know will broadcast the game. For example, the event can be viewed on any of the following platforms:

  • Paramount+
  • FuboTV
  • DAZN
  • NFL Plus
  • Hulu + Live TV
  • YouTube TV
  • DirecTV Stream

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 CBS 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 LVIII is Sunday, February 11, 2024, and will air on CBS at 6:30 PM Eastern.
