What Time Does The Super Bowl Start? What Channel Is It On?

Editor’s Note: Click here for the 2013 Super Bowl start time and channel information. Below is the information for the 2012 game.

Don’t know what time the Super Bowl starts? Not sure what channel the Super Bowl is on? Want to know who is announcing the Super Bowl? You’ve come to the right place!

Since Midwest Sports Fans started nearly four years ago as a side project at work for me to learn the ins and outs of WordPress and how this weird concept called “SEO” works, it’s only fitting that – inspired by this Deadspin post – I churn out a quick and highly-optimized post like this one today.

Consider a public service to all those poor souls who don’t already know the Super Bowl start time and what channel it will be on.

super-bowl-46-point-spread-pick-tv-info-announcers-date-time-tvWhat Time Does The Super Bowl Start?

So glad you asked!

The Super Bowl start time today is at 6:29 ET.

For those of you in the Central time zone, like me, the Super Bowl starts at 5:29 ET.

For those of you on Mountain Standard Time, the Super Bowl will start at 4:29 ET.

And for those of you who will be watching the Super Bowl from the Pacific time zone, like my dad, you will want to tune in to the Super Bowl at 3:29 ET.

What Channel Is The Super Bowl On?

Such a great and relevant follow-up question! Luckily, you’re Internet searches have delivered you to a post that can provide this very information!

The Super Bowl will be televised on whatever channel the NBC network is on in your local area.

For me here in Dallas, with Time Warner cable, the Super Bowl will be on channel 5. That could very well differ for you. So be sure to check what channel NBC is in your area.

Additionally, if you are not somewhere with a TV, you can watch the Super Bowl online. NBC is streaming it for free. Click for details about NBC streaming the Super Bowl online.

Who Will Be Announcing Super Bowl 46?

Holy guacamole, a bonus question! Maybe this isn’t such an avaricious post after all!

Because the Super Bowl will be televised on NBC, Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth will be announcing it.

You may be wondering why I did not include this question in the title of this post. The answer is simple: so as not to water down the power of the title for SEO purposes. And I am typing this paragraph out to add length to the post that does include the targeted keywords so that the keyword densities are a bit more reasonable. There is no real hard and fast rule on what keyword density should be, but it’s important not to make posts look too optimized. There, I think this should be about enough.

Hey, Super Bowl Sunday is the most gratuitous and gluttonous day in the United States. This post fits right in. Plus, it’s helping people on Super Bowl Sunday!

Did this post answer the exact question you needed answering after typing it into a search engine?

  1. I want to know who the two people are (so far) that have voted "No" in the poll. How did we not answer your question!!?? ;-)

    • if the superbowl starts at 6:29 ET, it starts at 4:29 MST not 4:29 ET. 4:29 ET makes it 2:29 MST. Sorry buddy it simply is the wrong answer to the question. Your Dad watches it at 3:29 PST. Do your homework and answer the question properly.
