How to watch Super Bowl 2024: All the best streaming options

Nineteen weeks of regular season NFL games later, and we still don’t know who’ll be in Super Bowl LVIII. This Sunday, the San Francisco 49ers play the Lions for the NFC championship, and the Kansas City Chiefs face the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC, with the respective victors meeting two weeks later for the big game. On Sunday, February 11, at 6:30 p.m. EST,  Super Bowl kickoff happens at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada, and we’ll see who wins it all.

Unless you watch the game — which is being broadcast by CBS — over the air (OTA) with an antenna, the best and cheapest way to watch the Super Bowl will be with a live TV streaming service

Besides CBS, the game will also stream live on Paramount+. As a Star Trek fan, I already subscribe to Paramount+, but if you’re not sure, you can sign up for a free one-week trial period. And, for a truly different sort of Super Bowl broadcast, Nickelodeon will air Super Bowl LVIII in Spanish. 

The game will also be available in 4K High Dynamic Range (HDR) OTA and on a few other streaming networks. That said, while the video will be better than what you’re used to seeing from your bog-standard Sunday broadcast, the 4K is actually being upscaled from 1080p HDR, so it won’t be as sharp as it theoretically could be. (In related news, don’t invest in an 8K TV anytime soon — unless you really must have cutting-edge TV technology. There’s little enough 4K content out there, and there’s almost none in 8K.)

Where to stream Super Bowl 2024

DirecTV Stream has gone through an amazing number of name changes. In the past, it’s been ATT TV, ATT TV Now, and DirecTV Now. Whatever you call it, you’ll get your local CBS station and Univision on even its cheapest package: the $69.99 Entertainment package.

DirecTV Stream’s other packages offer additional channels, with prices from $105 to $150 per month. For a limited time, you can get the Choice package, with more than 105 channels, for $83.99/month for your first two months instead of $108.99. Unfortunately, DirecTV does not offer 4K streaming at this time.

In addition, DirecTV Stream includes generous unlimited Cloud DVR storage. At home, you can watch the game, or any other show, on up to 20 streaming devices at once on your home network. Away from home, you can share your stream with three other devices.


Hulu with Live TV offers CBS on all its packages. The least expensive option is Live TV Only for $76.99 a month. However, Univision is not available on any Hulu offering, not even its Español add-on.

You could get one of the service’s bundles with Disney+ and ESPN+, albeit all with ads bundled. For $79.99 a month, that’s a good deal. Or if, like me, you can’t stand ads, you can pay $89.99 and avoid most of the ad spots.

With any of these packages, you can stream two sessions at once. For another $10 a month, you can play as many streams at once at home. But you’re still limited to three screens when you’re away from home. 

Another nice plus is you can store an unlimited number of videos in your cloud DVR archive for up to nine months. One thing you can’t do, however, is watch or store the Super Bowl in 4K. While you can watch many Hulu shows, such as Only Murders in the Building, Kindred, and Reboot, in 4K, live TV shows, including the Super Bowl, aren’t available in 4K.

The least expensive way to watch the game is with an antenna. For now, the Super Bowl is still on broadcast television, but this might not be the case going forward. 

The NFL Wild Card game between the Miami Dolphins and the Kansas City Chiefs on January 13 was only available on NBC’s Peacock. While ordinary viewers groused about this, the NFL loved it. I don’t think we’ll see the Super Bowl become a pay-for-view event in the next few years, but it will come. 

If you can’t watch it with an antenna, and you don’t have — or want — to subscribe to a streaming service, there is one other cheap way to do it: get the game on CBS’s Paramount+ streaming service. For $5.99 per month, it’s not a bad deal at all. The one fly in the soup is that you won’t be able to watch the game in 4K. 

Finally, make sure your streaming service supports your local CBS station. Before putting your money down, make certain that the service will deliver the game. Sure, most of the time, you’ll be fine, but you don’t want to explain to your buddies that they can’t watch the game after all if you’re one of the unfortunate few who can’t stream a local CBS station. 

Sorry, no can do. Maybe next year.
