Start time, TV channel and how to watch for free: Super Bowl live stream
Tom Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers will throw down against Patrick Mahomes’ Kansas City Chiefs at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida – home to the Buccaneers themselves. Make sure you know how to watch a Super Bowl live stream for free, in HD, from anywhere in the world.
The Super Bowl is the most-watched TV showpiece in the US, with over 100 million football fans tuning in each year. This year, Super Bowl LV – the 55th Super Bowl – will be televised by CBS and live streamed on the CBS All Access app in HD for just $5.99.
Super Bowl LV will be the fifth Super Bowl hosted by Tampa, the fourth-highest total behind Miami (11 times), New Orleans (10) and Los Angeles (seven). Tampa’s first four Super Bowls were memorable. In Super Bowl XVIII, the Los Angeles Raiders upset defending champion Washington, 38-9. Marcus Allen took home MVP honors after rushing for a then-Super Bowl record 191 yards. His 74-yard, game-clinching touchdown run served as the longest run in Super Bowl history for 22 years. Seven years later, the Giants edged the Bills in the only Super Bowl that has been decided by a single point.
Super Bowl 55 promises to be a Vince Lombardi Trophy battle for the history books. Around 22,000 fans will be allowed into the 65,000-seater stadium, including 7,500 vaccinated key workers.
Defending champions the Kansas City Chiefs scored a 31-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in last year’s Super Bowl. Can they become the first team to win back-to-back Super Bowls since the New England Patriots in 2003 and 2004?
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers return to the grand stage for the first time since 2003, when they defeated the Raiders 48–21. Will the NFC champions become the first NFL team to win a Super Bowl in their very own home stadium, pirate ship and all?
In 2001, the Ravens’ defense capped off a dominant season by shutting out the Giants’ offense in Super Bowl XXXV. In 2009, James Harrison’s 100-yard interception return and Ben Roethlisberger’s last-minute touchdown pass to Santonio Holmes lifted the Steelers to a thrilling win over the Cardinals in Super Bowl XLIII.
Either way, fans will be treated to a dream quarterback match up: legendary G.O.A.T Tom Brady versus his potential successor, young gun Patrick Mahomes. Brady and Mahomes are currently 2-2. But while Mahomes has 11 touchdowns to Brady’s six, three-time MVP Brady has already appeared in a record-breaking 10 Super Bowls, winning six.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will soon become the first team to ever host the Super Bowl at their own stadium. This will be the third Super Bowl played inside Raymond James Stadium. While that seemingly would provide them with an advantage in the big game, on the other sideline awaits the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs. This should be one of the most exciting Super Bowl matchups in recent memory when Patrick Mahomes takes on Tom Brady. If Mahomes continues on his current trajectory, he may be the only quarterback who can give Brady a run for his money when it comes to the greatest of all time debate.
