Super Bowl LV is nearly upon us. We are just two short days away from the NFL’s season finale at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. The Chiefs and Buccaneers are ready to battle it out and we can’t wait for the action to unfold. Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs are seeking to repeat as Super Bowl champions, but they’ll have to get it done against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers — in the Bucs’ home stadium, no less! Brady is on the hunt for his seventh Super Bowl title to further prove he is the greatest of all time. So who will prevail?
At this point, can we all agree that it’s time to remove the “arguably” from in front of Brady’s GOAT tag? He’s already produced about three Hall of Fame careers as he looks for ring number seven at age 43. But if anyone is going to take the crown, way down the line, it’s Mahomes, who is out to defeat Brady and cement his place as the NFL’s new generational quarterback. In this matchup against Brady — the two faced one another in the 2018 AFC Championship Game — Mahomes will look to grab his second straight Super Bowl in three full seasons played. What a matchup! The Big Game will finally go down on Sunday, Feb. 7.
You came to the right place if you’re wondering how to actually watch this year’s Super Bowl. You can watch the game FOR FREE on CBSSports.com and the CBS Sports App on your phone and connected TV devices.
How to watch pregame coverage
This year, CBS Sports is offering extensive access to pregame Super Bowl LV coverage.

Beginning Monday, Feb. 1, CBS Sports HQ will deliver on-site programming and reports throughout each day, and on game day will stream live pregame coverage, plus postgame analysis and highlights.

Super Bowl LV is almost here, and you can watch it for free on the CBS Sports App.
Watching Super Bowl LV with (or without) Hulu
The aforementioned Hulu + Live TV plan comes with more than 65 live channels, including ABC, CBS, CNN, FOX, and NBC.
Super Bowl broadcasting rights alternate between Fox, NBC, and CBS, so the Super Bowl is always available with a Hulu + Live TV subscription. The 2021 Super Bowl will be broadcast on CBS, and you’ll be able to watch the entire game on Hulu, along with pregame and postgame coverage – and all the ads that appear on your local CBS network.
Hulu + Live TV also offers a seven-day free trial, so you don’t need to pay for a subscription if you only want to watch the big game. Just don’t forget to cancel the plan before you’re charged as Hulu + Live TV subscriptions cost $64.99/month since December 2020.
And if you already subscribe to services like CBS All Access, FuboTV, YouTube TV or AT&T TV Now, then you’ll be able to see the Super Bowl on CBS on those, too.
If Hulu is your Super Bowl streaming service of choice, you can pull up the game by accessing the NFL Football Sports Collection within the Hulu app or website. You’ll also be able to find the broadcast in the Guide or by going directly to the Super Bowl page, which should pop up shortly before the game.
