Somehow, the 2022 Super Bowl is nearly upon us. The Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals will square off on Super Bowl Sunday at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.

If you'll be tuning into your television on game day, but haven't quite considered how you'll find your way to the game, you're in luck. We've rounded up all the avenues for watching the Super Bowl, including options for cable subscribers, cord-cutters, and everyone in between.

Whether you're tuning in to watch the teams in action or simply to watch the halftime show (this year's will feature Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, and Mary J. Blige), we've got you covered for game day.

When will the Super Bowl air?

The Super Bowl LVI will air on Sunday, February 13, 2022 at 6:30 P.M. EST. Depending on where you watch, coverage for the game and pregame talk shows will start at 6 P.M. EST.

Where can you watch the Super Bowl?

NBC is the home of the Super Bowl, and you can tune into the channel through cable networks, streaming services, and more. You can log into NBCSports.com or the NBC app to tune in through your current cable subscription with your cable provider.

You can also stream the Super Bowl in the NFL app on mobile and tablet.

How can you watch the Super Bowl without cable?

If you don't have cable, you have a couple streaming options for the Super Bowl. You can watch without a cable subscription through Peacock, which will also host live coverage and can be used to watch recordings of the event. Peacock is NBC Universal's streaming service that also features NBC original series such as The Office, Parks and Recreation, and 30 Rock, as well as Saturday Night Live. You can sign up for Peacock's Premium tier for $4.99 per month, which will give you access to the Super Bowl (with ads). If you already have a free Peacock subscription, you can upgrade to Premium easily.
