The Super Bowl LV takes place in Tampa, Florida, this weekend. The hours-long television broadcast will feature live pregame coverage from Raymond James Stadium, a spectacular halftime show, and a slew of buzzworthy commercials. The historic football game kicks off Sunday evening at 6:30 p.m. ET (3:30 p.m. PT).
Here's everything you need to know about how to watch.
Where to watch the Super Bowl
CBS will begin showing pregame coverage at 2 p.m. ET on Sunday, February 7. You can catch all the action, analysis, highlights, and more on your local CBS channel. If you don't have a traditional cable or TV subscription, you can also tune in with CBS All Access, the CBS Sports App, or CBSSports.com.
When is the Super Bowl?
If you're only interested in the main event—commercials and musical performances included—you'll want to have your food, drinks, and seating arrangements ready to go by 6:30 p.m. on Sunday. That's when kickoff's scheduled to happen. But if you don't tune in until 6:30 p.m., you won't miss anything too important.
Who's playing in the Super Bowl?
Last year's Super Bowl champions, the Kansas City Chiefs, are taking on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Super Bowl 2021. Previously, the Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers at the Super Bowl LIV game in Miami Gardens on February 2, 2020. This game is also significant because the Buccaneers will make post-season history as the first team ever to play at their home stadium during the Super Bowl.
Who's performing the Super Bowl halftime show 2021
Fresh off his latest album, "After Hours," R&B superstar The Weeknd will perform live at this year's Pepsi Super Bowl LV halftime show, which is scheduled to start around 8 p.m. ET.
"I'm humbled, honored, and ecstatic to be the center of that infamous stage this year," the Canadian singer-songwriter said in a recent statement. "We all grow up watching the world's biggest acts playing the Super Bowl, and one can only dream of being in that position."
According to NBC Sports, artists Jazmine Sullivan and Eric Church will sing the national anthem, with singer-songwriter H.E.R. performing "America the Beautiful."
