CBS Sports plans big time Super Bowl LIII streaming coverage
When you own the rights to Super Bowl LIII, February 3rd in Atlanta, you go all out on coverage and CBS Sports plans to do just that online.
The game itself will stream on more platforms than ever – all authentication-free – including CBSSports.com and the CBS Sports app available on connected TV platforms like Apple TV, phones, and tablets. Subscribers to CBS All Access will also be able to stream the game.
CBS will use the game to drive traffic to CBS Sports HQ, the free streaming service it launched in February 2018 and available through its Apple TV app. There will be over 30 hours of live original content from Super Bowl LIII.
CBS Sports HQ will offer a 10-hour pre-game show, running from 8 am to 6 pm ET, the company has announced. Every hour will see a different competition between CBS Sports Digital talent and current or former players.
Once the game is over, CBS Sports HQ will offer postgame coverage, running from 10 pm to 12 am ET.
The week leading up to the Super Bowl, CBS Sports HQ will stream four shows each weekday offering news, interviews, and analysis.
