Super Bowl 2015 date and kickoff time are a top search online as NFL fans across the country get ready to watch the Seattle Seahawks face the New England Patriots at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Circle Sunday, February 1 on your calendar and start shopping for your Super Bowl XLIX party food — kickoff time is 6:30 p.m. ET.
Don’t miss a minute of game day action and those all-important Super Bowl commercials — NBC will air the game on your local NBC TV channel, but the network will also be live streaming the game, the pre-game show and the halfime show for free this year. That’s a huge perk for NFL fans.
The NBC Live Extra app can be used on your computer, iPhone, iPad, or Android device. Normally, viewers would have to verify that they have a pay-TV subscription, but on Super Bowl Sunday, anyone can use the app with no cable TV necessary.

Verizon customers who choose not to stream the game live with the NBC app can use Verizon’s NFL Mobile app on their smartphone or tablet if they have the “More Everything” plan.
If you are on the road and have a Sirius XM subscription, tune in to Channel 88 to listen to the game on-the-go.

Even if your favorite team didn’t make it to the Super Bowl this year, it’s always worth tuning in for the commercials and the halftime show. The Inquisitr previously reported that previews of the 2015 Super Bowl ads are already online, with the hilarious Doritos ads, GoDaddy’s Danica Patrick, the return of the Budweiser Clydesdales, and a brand new Jurassic World movie trailer topping the list.
The NFL reports that Idina Menzel will sing the National Anthem and John Legend will sing “America The Beautiful” prior to kickoff on February 1. According to NBC, Katy Perry will headline the Pepsi Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show and will be joined by Lenny Kravitz. Perry follows an impressive list of halftime acts over the past few years, including Bruno Mars, Beyoncé, Madonna, and The Who.
