How to live stream Super Bowl LVIII

If you own cable, I’m not certain why you’re reading this, but this year the game will be aired on your local CBS affiliate. If you don’t have cable, one app to dominate all others for streaming the big game.


CBS is the proprietor of Paramount+, and this streaming service provides access to a high-quality live broadcast of your local CBS channel. Put two and two together and you’ll realize that all you need to do is shell out $5.99 for one month of the service (or, if you’re fortunate, you may be able to utilize a 7-day free trial) and you can watch Super Bowl LVIII.

Once you’re finished, you can watch Halo or something, I suppose.

Live TV streaming services

If you find yourself in a Brewster’s Millions predicament and need to spend money, there are pricier methods to stream the Super Bowl. These are in the form of live TV streaming services, akin to cable but slightly less costly. Here are a few prominent ones that offer CBS:

Some of these services also provide complimentary trials, so that’s also an option. However, Paramount+ is probably still your best bet.

Return to traditional methods

The most cost-effective way to view the Super Bowl each year is to purchase a TV antenna, which grants access to local over-the-air networks. Coincidentally, the Super Bowl is annually broadcast over-the-air, making this a one-time investment that will work every year.

Irrespective of your chosen method for watching the grand game, I hope you’re prepared for non-stop coverage of America’s beloved power couple.
