In Super Bowl LVI, the Cincinnati Bengals take on the Los Angeles Rams, at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium, starting at 6 p.m. ET / 3 p.m. PT on February 13, 2022. Here’s how to stream this year’s Super Bowl.


Super Bowl LVI on Peacock

Thanks to a deal swapping with CBS for the 2021 game, the home network for this year’s Super Bowl is NBC. That means that the game will be streamed on NBC’s corporate sibling Peacock, exclusively on the premium tier ($4.99+ per month). Peacock subscribers can catch the somewhat unlikely match-up between two teams that both entered the playoffs seeded fourth.
