The Super Bowl Halftime Show is always a star-studded affair, and this year, R&B singer Usher is headlining the event. If you don’t want to miss out — and why would you — you’ll need to tune in when it airs, starting around 8 to 8:15 p.m. EST (5 to 5:15 p.m. PST). So where exactly can you watch the Super Bowl Halftime Show live stream? On which channels and which services? That’s exactly what this guide covers.
On cable TV, Super Bowl LVIII will air on CBS and, surprisingly, Nickelodeon for a kid-friendly version of the broadcast. Of course, this does not explain where to tune in on the Internet.
Is there a live stream of the Super Bowl Halftime Show?
Technically, if you’re already subscribed to the services that stream Super Bowl LVIII and the Halftime Show, you can watch it for free. But if you are not subscribed to anything, there is still a reliable way. FuboTV, now called Fubo, is a TV streaming service that allows you to watch cable TV broadcasts entirely online. Normally, you have to pay to watch, but there is a free trial of Fubo that allows you to explore the service, without limits, for up to 7 days – a whole week. If you sign up before the big game, you’ll be able to watch on the channel of your choice without paying a dime. What’s more, Fubo is available on a variety of devices, from TVs and streaming technology to mobile, so you can tune in wherever you want. Suppose you have to get up to go to the bathroom in the middle of all the action. You can tune in from an app on your phone. Gotta love technology.
Watch the Super Bowl halftime show on Fubo
As mentioned, Fubo includes support for CBS, the cable channel that will broadcast Super Bowl LVIII. If you’ve already signed up for the service, you’re good to go! If you are not registered, you can always watch the free trial for up to 7 days. These 7 days include every live sporting event that happens during your trial, so if you sign up before the big game, you’ll be able to watch them. If you want to watch the Super Bowl or the Apple Music Halftime Show, what are you waiting for?
Watch the Super Bowl halftime show on Paramount+
While the Super Bowl and Halftime Show are being broadcast on CBS for cable, satellite and digital antenna users, it should come as no surprise that there are alternatives for those looking to stream the game live. Paramount+ is one of those alternatives where you’ll be able to watch both the Kansas City Chiefs vs San Francisco 49ers during the Super Bowl and the Apple Music Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show, featuring R&B singer Usher. If you’re already subscribed to Paramount+, then great, you don’t need to do anything other than tune in when it’s game time. If you don’t have Paramount+, you’ll either need to subscribe and install it on the devices you want to watch from, or you’ll need to subscribe to another service listed here. Hurry, you don’t want to miss any action.
Watch the Super Bowl halftime show on Hulu with live TV
If you’re not familiar, Hulu essentially has two services, albeit related. There’s regular Hulu with tons of great movies, shows, and exclusive on-demand content, and then there’s Hulu with Live TV, which also includes access to live cable TV streaming online. Because Hulu’s live TV service includes CBS, the channel that is airing Super Bowl LVIII, you’ll be able to watch the game and the halftime show with your subscription. If you’re not subscribed and Hulu is where you want to watch, you’ll need to sign up — and install the app — before 6pm EST. If you’re only interested in the Apple Music Halftime Show, it will start sometime around 8 to 8:15 p.m. EST (5 to 5:15 p.m. PST).
Watch the Super Bowl halftime show on YouTube TV
YouTube TV is the brand’s live streaming cable TV service, and you’ll definitely be able to watch the Super Bowl if you’re a subscriber. There is also a free trial on YouTube TV. This gives you 10 days of full access, to over 100 live channels, for free, although you’ll need to provide your credit card information – nothing will be charged unless you let it auto-renew. Like the other streaming services here, YouTube is available on a variety of devices, from smart TVs and streaming technology like Roku to mobile. After the free trial ends, it will be $63 for your first 3 months – saving you $30 – and then $73 per month after the promotional price.
Watch the Super Bowl halftime show from abroad with a VPN
If you’re spending time abroad when the Super Bowl airs, you’ll soon find that there are few local streaming options, and most streaming providers geo-restrict access to their platforms based on your current IP – which tells them your current location . There is a way around this issue and that is with a virtual private network or VPN. When you connect through a VPN, you’ll be assigned a remote IP that masks your original address, and these services can make it look like you’re browsing from home.
Our recommendation for a VPN is NordVPN, and there is a free trial of NordVPN. Again, you’ll want to sign up before the big game so you can install the VPN on all your devices and tune in. NordVPN will let you access Fubo, YouTube TV, Paramount+ and other services that would otherwise be unavailable when connecting from abroad. As part of an exclusive birthday deal, you can save up to 67% off your subscription and get an Uber Eats coupon, perfect for snacking on during the big game.
