How to Watch Super Bowl LVI 2022
Don’t miss out on the best game of the year
When is the Super Bowl?
Super Bowl LVI 2022 is scheduled for 6:30 pm ET on Sunday, February 13. The Cincinnati Bengals will take on the Los Angeles Rams in Los Angeles, California, at the new SoFi Stadium.
Get your jersey, your snacks, and your TV setup ready for game day asap. (Don’t act like you’re not as excited as we are).
If you’re here just to find out where you can watch Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar for the halftime show, we got you covered there as well.
This year, the Super Bowl will be on NBC, so we’re going to tell you which services are the best for this channel. Let’s get the game goin’.
How can I watch Super Bowl LVI 2022?
Don’t let the fam down (like the Cleveland Browns do every year). The best game of the year will be on NBC, so you'll need to know which TV providers have NBC.
We created a list of the top five providers with this channel, and we even included our favorite live TV streaming service, cable TV provider, and satellite TV provider.
Sign up for one ASAP so you don't miss out on the Matt Stafford and Cooper Kupp duo that we've been so awestruck with all season long.

Peacock is our #1 pick for the Super Bowl
Peacock TV has been making some big moves lately, and one of them is getting the rights to air Super Bowl 2022. For $5–$10 per month, how could you not jump on this deal like a defensive lineman jumps on a loose ball?
So if you want to stream the Super Bowl and then binge-watch Bel-Air (the reboot of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, releasing on February 13), then this is your service.
Peacock gives you access to over 50 channels, but Peacock won't replace a TV provider. Peacock has NBC channels and TV shows that run on a loop, such as NBC Sports Network and a Saturday Night Live channel. (Now, Peacock is one of the only places to watch the NBC Sports Network).
fuboTV is the best live TV streaming service to watch the SB
fuboTV has NBC in all of its packages so you can watch the big game, but what might truly win you over is this:
fuboTV gives you access to 50 sports channels.
That's the most sports channels any TV provider in the industry offers! Now you see why we consider fuboTV the MVP.
Xfinity TV is the best cable TV option for the Super Bowl
TV channel count
|Popular TV||$50.00/mo.°||125+||View Plans|
|Ultimate TV||$68.50/mo.°||185+||View Plans|
Xfinity has got you covered with the NBC channel for the Super Bowl, as well as over 185 other channels for you and the family.
Xfinity is the best cable TV provider because it’s widely available across the country, fairly-priced for the number of channels your receive, and has a great DVR to record loads of sporting events.
But first, record the Super Bowl. We know you'll pay attention to Joe Burrow making passes to Ja'Marr Chase, but we know how loud the family can get during the impressive SB commercials.
We really like Xfinity's promotional pricing, but you must know you'll see some price increases after your 1-year contract is over. Your monthly bill will go up by $20–$30, but we still believe this is fair pricing for what you get with this provider.
YouTube TV has the major sports networks to enjoy after the SB
If you’re on the hunt for a live TV streaming service and you need to watch the Super Bowl on NBC, we highly recommend YouTube TV.
YouTube TV is one of the most well-rounded live TV streaming service with popular channels like Disney Channel, ESPN, and Food Network.
You’ll also get NFL Network, NBA TV, and MLB Network. No other live TV streaming service gives you these major sports channels for the price of $65 per month.
Oh, and we can’t forget to mention that YouTube TV has the best DVR in the industry, offering unlimited storage space that saves your recordings for up to nine months.
This means you can record the Super Bowl, lots of 30 for 30 movies, and 100 episodes of Pardon the Interruption, Around the Horn, and Sportscenter.
Seriously, you can record whatever your football-loving heart desires.
DISH is the best satellite TV service for the Super Bowl
TV channel count
|America's Top 120||$79.99/mo.**||190||View Plan|
|America's Top 120+||$94.99/mo.††||190+||View Plan|
|America's Top 200||$99.99/mo.‡‡||240+||View Plan|
|America's Top 250||$109.99/mo.^^||290+||View Plan|
DISH has the best pricing if you're considering a satellite TV option (compared to DIRECTV), and all four of its plans have the NBC channel to watch the Bengals and Rams matchup.
We should mention that the promotional pricing above is only guaranteed when you sign a 2-year contract. If you don’t want to be tied down, you’ll have to spend about $10–$15 more per month.
Serious sports fans will want America's Top 200 because you'll get access to 22 sports channels in your 240-channel lineup.
Who is performing at the Super Bowl Halftime Show?
Some of the greatest rappers in the game will be performing at the Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show: Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar.
They're all back. Back again. We all know they're going to Drop It Like it's Hot. And trust us, no one Forgot About Dre.
This memorable performance will take place sometime between 8:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. ET, and you're not going to want to miss this.
