How to watch Super Bowl 2023: date, time, TV channels, 4K and more
After another long season with more quarterback changes across the league than could be tracked, we have reached the pinnacle of the sport and one of the most-watched sporting occasions of the year in the world. Here’s what you need to know to watch Super Bowl 2023.
The Bengals came close to back-to-back Super Bowl appearances, but it was the Kansas City Chiefs who once again took the AFC’s spot in the big game – for the third time in four years. Led by the already legendary Patrick Mahomes, they will face the Philadelphia Eagles who return for the first time since a miracle win in 2018 after losing just three games this year.
Both teams are the number one seed in their respective conferences (the league is split into NFC and AFC) and will battle to lift the Lombardi Trophy after Super Bowl LVII (aka 57).
You can watch it in different ways as we will explain, some of which are free. You can easily watch on your smartphone, tablet, laptop, PC and other devices.
