UK NFL fans can watch American coverage of Super Bowl for 99p



Super Bowl LVIII takes place on Sunday night between Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers – and there are several ways for UK fans to watch.

In the UK, both ITV and Sky Sports will be showing all the action from the NFL‘s final championship game in Paradise, Nevada.

The Chiefs, led by two-time Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes and tight-end Travis Kelce, are taking on a 49ers side that won the Super Bowl five times in the 1980s and 1990s but haven’t lifted the Vince Lombardi Trophy since 1994.

It promises to be a special occasion, with Usher headlining the traditional half-time show at the Allegiant Stadium.

Taylor Swift, the boyfriend of Kelce, will potentially be attending the event after essentially inspiring a new audience to begin watching NFL, while fans have even been attempting to track her private jet usage.

The action all kicks off at 11:30pm UK time, meaning it will go on until the early hours of Monday morning.

Usually, viewers would be limited to the UK coverage of the specific channels that have live TV rights – but this year is a little different.

Those who want to watch the Super Bowl via the original US broadcast – which includes American commentary, analysis and (unfortunately for some) the adverts – can do so on DAZN.

DAZN are offering an NFL Game Pass, which comes in at 99p and is available to purchase directly from their website.

ITV, though, are broadcasting free-to-air coverage of the event which you can tune into from 10:45pm, with the action presented by Craig Doyle.

Commentary for the ITV coverage is yet to be confirmed, although TNT Sports‘ lead football commentator Darren Fletcher summarised the action last year.

Sky’s coverage, meanwhile, will be anchored by Neil Reynolds, while they will use the commentary feed from official US broadcasters CBS and Paramount.
