Ways to Watch or Listen to the Super Bowl

Even if you can't watch the game, you can still hear it

Not everyone will be able to catch the Super Bowl on TV. But there are more ways than ever before to see the NFL games, and this year's Super Bowl LIII (which is Super Bowl 53, if you can't remember what "L" stands for in Roman numerals) can be experienced in more ways than simply sitting down and watching it on TV.

If you prefer to listen to the Super Bowl rather than watch it on TV — or you're stuck somewhere you don't have access to a television — you have several options for listening to the biggest football game of the year ​on the radio.

And even if you're in a place without a TV, if you have a smartphone, you can get access to a live broadcast through the NFL App. Just don't go watching it in places you probably shouldn't, like while you're driving.

Super Bowl LIII Details

First, here are the details on the Super Bowl in 2019.

The game's announcers will be Jim Nantz, Tony Romo, Evan Washburn, and Tracy Wolfson. The halftime show will be performed by Maroon 5, Travis Scott, and Big Boi.
