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

Don’t know what time the 2013 Super Bowl starts? Not sure what channel the Super Bowl is on? Want to know who is announcing the Super Bowl? We’ve got you covered.

Since Jerod Morris started Midwest Sports Fans started almost five years ago as an experimental site to help him become experienced in WordPress and learn how SEO works, it’s only fitting that I publish this short, SEO-inspired – but helpful – post about the Super Bowl start time and what channel it will be on as he gets the honor of attending the Super Bowl with his family today.

What Time Does The Super Bowl Start?

nfl-previews-predictions-divisional-roundHere it is:

The Super Bowl start time today is at 6:30 ET.

Now, for the time zone break down:

  • If you’re in the Central time zone, like me, the Super Bowl starts at 5:30 CST.
  • If you’re on Mountain Standard Time, the Super Bowl will start at 4:30 MST.
  • And if you’ll be watching the Super Bowl from the Pacific time zone, you will want to tune in to the Super Bowl at 3:30 PST.

What Channel Is The Super Bowl On?

Great question!

This year the Super Bowl will be televised on your local CBS channel.

In North Texas, CBS is Channel 11, but the channel could be different in your area. If you’re unsure of which channel is CBS, I suggest visiting this list of CBS stations and affiliates or typing your ZIP code in at TV.com.

You can also watch the Super Bowl live on your computer. Catch the game through CBS’ free Super Bowl streaming on its website.

Who Will Be Announcing Super Bowl 47?

A great bonus question.

Since CBS is airing the game, Jim Nantz and Phil Simms will be announcing it. The sideline reporters will be Steve Tasker and Solomon Wilcots.

You can let us know what you think of that lineup. Some people are not too pleased with it. To read about the station’s broadcast plan, click here.
