The Super Bowl is one of the largest sporting events in the USA and is now watched by many people around the world. We will show you where and how you can watch the 54th Super Bowl, fill the half-time break, and which apps you should have at hand on your smartphone for the big game.
The basics first: this year the Super Bowl will take place on February 3 at the Hard rock Stadium in Miami, Florida. The battle for the Vince Lombardi Trophy will be fought by the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers. The match will be broadcast live on FOX in the US, with kick-off at 18:30 ET. If you can't watch the game on TV, but have your smartphone or tablet at hand instead, you can stream the Super Bowl.
Of course, a Wi-Fi connection is recommended here, as otherwise, the data consumption can quickly skyrocket. For example, an HD live stream via the LTE network can consume up to 30 MB per minute - depending on the streaming app. Although a football match only runs for one hour, the Super Bowl spectacle usually extends to three to four hours due to commercial breaks during the countless breaks in the game and the famous and elaborate half-time show.
Super Bowl Apps for the halftime show
This year, headliners Shakira and Jennifer Lopez will appear in the Super Bowl's halftime show.

Football newcomers can let off steam in the ran app even before the game. Here you can find all the information about the rules and numerous facts about American Football.
