When is the Super Bowl?
Super Bowl LV starts at 6:30 p.m. ET.
Pre-game content airs throughout the day on CBS. We’ve got the full schedule, including coin toss and more, available below.
No matter the teams, people always ask “What time is the Super Bowl?” It’s such an expected search phrase that I’ve even heard podcasters make jokes about it.
That being said, we’re here to help, so we’ve got all the details you would need about what time it starts, when it’s scheduled to end and all the other details you’ll need to plan out your Super Bowl 2021 live stream.
One thing you won’t have to worry about this year is finding a Super Bowl 2021 4K stream — it’s not happening. That means the best you can find is a good solid and reliable Full HD stream of the big game. For that, we recommend the best TV antennas.
What time is the Super Bowl?
Super Bowl 55 is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. ET / 3:30 p.m. PT / 11:30 p.m. BST. Yet again, our friends on the west coast have a super convenient time for the big game, while those across the pond will be staying up late.
The game is scheduled to end by 10 p.m. ET, when new series The Equalizer comes on. Of course, it could go long and push that series back. Expectations are high for The Equalizer, as series run in this coveted post-Super Bowl spot will garner a lot of attention.

Super Bowl schedule
There’s hours of supporting content, beforehand.
Looking at our own TV Guide, we see the CBS pre-show The Super Bowl Today goes from 2 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. ET. It will be packed with musical performances, starting with Eric Church and Jazmine Sullivan performing the National Anthem. Then, you’ve got performing artist H.E.R. (Gabriella Sarmiento Wilson) with America the Beautiful. The Super Bowl Today will also be where you see the ceremonial coin toss and team introductions.
Before that, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. ET, CBS airs Tony Goes to the Super Bowl, a special hosted by Tony Romo. The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback (who is calling the big game as an analyst) will spend this hour talking to previous Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks, including Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes.
