Here’s how to watch Super Bowl LIV even if you don’t have a pay-TV subscription — or even a television. The broadcast and live-streaming access to the NFL title game pitting the San Francisco 49ers against the Kansas City Chiefs will also include the halftime show featuring Jennifer Lopez and Shakira.
In the U.S., Fox’s national broadcast of the Super Bowl, live from Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium, will start on Feb. 2, 2020, at 6:30 p.m. ET. The Fox station broadcasts are available free to watch using an over-the-air digital antenna and through most cable, satellite and telco TV services.
A Spanish-language broadcast will air on the Fox Deportes cable channel (which requires a subscription to an affiliated pay-TV distributor).
