Two years later, the Kansas City Chiefs will have to face Brady again, but this time Brady is in a different uniform. Brady — in his first season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers — will go up against the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV tonight on CBS. The game pits the veteran quarterback against Mahomes, the 2018 NFL MVP. Although the Chiefs are a favorite to win the game, the Bucs are the first team in NFL history to have home field advantage in a Super Bowl. The big game will be played at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. The Bucs come into the game after a number of close calls in a 31-26 win against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship game. The Chiefs look ahead following a strong 38-24 win against the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Championship game. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. ET. Outside of the game itself, pop superstar The Weeknd is headlining the halftime show. You can expect to hear songs like “Blinding Lights” as the artist celebrates 10 years since his debut project. Below, we’ve broken down all your options for watching the 2021 Super Bowl on CBS, including a few apps that let you stream the game for free.

The game will be broadcast on CBS and there are a number of ways to watch it.  If you have cable or an over-the-air antenna, you can simply tune into your local CBS station to catch the game. For streaming fans, the Super Bowl will also be available via several live TV services, including a couple of free options. How to stream the Super Bowl for free Super Bowl LV will be available to stream for free through the CBS Sports app, the NFL app, and the Yahoo Sports app.  The CBS Sports app is supported by a variety of streaming devices, including Roku, Apple TV, Fire TV, iOS and Android products, and Vizio and LG smart TVs. You can also access the game for free via CBSSport.com on a web browser. Meanwhile, the NFL app will feature extra viewing options for the game. The app will host a “Verizon 5G SuperStadium” feature, meaning fans with an iPhone 12 can watch the game from five different camera angles at home or, if you’re in Raymond James Stadium, from seven different camera angles. You can also use the feature to project stats on some of the players using augmented reality. Finally, the Yahoo Sports app will let you watch the game with family and friends from afar. The “Watch Together” feature lets you stream the game with up to three other people via split-screen video chat and synced playback. Subscription streaming services with access to the Super Bowl CBS All Access offers one of the cheapest ways to stream the Super Bowl through a subscription platform. This service provides access to the live CBS channel as well as a ton of on-demand movies and original shows. There’s a seven-day free trial for new subscribers, so if you haven’t used CBS All Access before, you can sign up right now to watch the Super Bowl for free.  After the free trial, the streaming service’s limited-commercial plan costs $6 per month. You can get a commercial-free plan for $10 per month, but live TV still features ads. As part of a special promotion, new subscribers can receive 50% off an annual plan when using the promo code PARAMOUNTPLUS. This brings the price for an annual limited-commercial plan down to just $30, which is only $2.50 a month. CBS All Access will rebrand to Paramount Plus starting March 4. The transition will bring new movies and original series to the streaming service from popular Paramount brands and networks. In addition to CBS All Access, you can also watch the Super Bowl through other live streaming services that carry the CBS channel, including Hulu + Live TV, FuboTV, YouTube TV, and AT&T TV. Hulu + Live TV, FuboTV, and YouTube TV all offer free one-week trials, and they all start at $65 per month. CBS is on AT&T TV as well, but that streaming service’s entry-level plan starts at $70 per month and it doesn’t include a seven-day free trial. AT&T TV does offer the most plans to choose from, however, so it’s a good option for people who are willing to pay more for extra channels.

Canadian pop superstar The Weeknd, known for his infectious hooks and influence on modern R&B, will headline the Super Bowl halftime show. The halftime show is expected to begin sometime between 8 p.m. ET and 8:30 p.m. ET.  The performance comes during the same year as the 10th anniversary of the singer’s first project, “House of Balloons.” The Weeknd confirmed in a Super Bowl press conference that he will be performing alone with no special guests, which presents a departure from recent halftime shows. The Weeknd also said that he would keep things “PG” during the show for families. 2020 has been a big year for The Weeknd thanks to the release of his album “After Hours.” The Weeknd sparked discussion due to public appearances with a bloodied face wrapped in bandages following the album’s release. The singer told Esquire that his appearance was meant to highlight the dangers associated with drunk driving.  The Weeknd’s performance will come just days after the release of “The Highlights,” a greatest hits compilation he released on February 5.  Where can I watch replays of recent playoff games before the Super Bowl? The best place to relive games from the 2020-21 season and the NFL Playoffs is NFL Game Pass. Although the season will come to a close on February 7, you can sign up for NFL Game Pass to enjoy both full and shortened replays of any game from the past year. The service offers a free seven-day trial, and after the trial period is over, you can pay $50 for access to NFL Game Pass through the end of July. The platform is perfect if you’re a football fan and want to watch old games before the Super Bowl, as it includes a historical archive full of NFL matches from decades’ past.  ESPN+ also offers a selection of NFL content and historical games from the NFL Films library, along with a highlight show and quarterback profiles. ESPN+ costs $6 a month or $60 a year. Product Card (small)Product Card (small)Join the conversation about this story »
