The 50th Super Bowl is about to kick off in San Francisco. Here’s how you can tune in from your couch or office chair in Australia.
On Free-To-Air TV
Channel Seven has the rights to broadcast the Super Bowl, and its coverage starts at 10:00AM AEDT (Sydney time) — that’s right now. You can watch the Super Bowl live on Channel Seven in your region from 10:00AM to 4:00PM, although in some areas it will be shown on 7Mate.
Foxtel is showing Super Bowl 50 live on ESPN, with coverage running from 7:30AM AEDT all the way until the afternoon. If you have a cable subscription to Foxtel, this is the best way to watch the Super Bowl — that’s not a surprise, since sport is Foxtel’s biggest selling point in Australia.
You can’t watch ESPN for free on the Foxtel Go or Foxtel Play apps, but you can sign up for a fortnight’s free trial of the service and use that little loophole to watch the Super Bowl today — without having to spend a cent.
When’s The Kick-Off?
Super Bowl 50, the Denver Broncos versus the Carolina Panthers, kicks off at 10:30AM AEDT in Australia. The game usually runs for around three hours, and there’s a bunch of entertainment including a half-time show from Beyonce.
