The countdown to Super Bowl 50 is on and NFL fans are gearing up to watch the Panthers vs. Broncos showdown at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, on Sunday, February 7, 2016.
What time does the Carolina vs Denver game start and how can you watch the game, the halftime show, and the Super Bowl commercials online or on your mobile device? Here’s the scoop on how to watch the game on CBS TV, via the network’s free live feed, or on your iPhone, iPad, or Android mobile phone or tablet. If you are on the road and unable to watch, find details below about the Super Bowl live radio broadcast on Sirius XM radio and Westwood One.
Kickoff Time: The pre-game show begins at 1 p.m. ET, followed by kickoff time at 6:30 p.m. ET, so order your pizzas from Domino’s, Pizza Hut, and Papa John’s early — delivery times will be slow on game day. AOL Lifestyle reports that Super Bowl Sunday is the most popular day of the year to order pizza, with New Year’s Eve coming in a close second.
Viewing Information: Whether you will be sitting on your couch, hosting a game day party, or sneaking a peek at the game at work, there are several ways to watch the game live streaming for free if you’re not near a TV. Normally, CBS requires viewers to log in to their account to verify cable service before viewing the live stream, but not for this year’s Super Bowl. That’s a big perk for NFL fans who don’t have an account with cable companies like Verizon FiOS, Comcast, COX, or Dish Network.

According to SB Nation, the weather looks good for Super Bowl Sunday. With previous concerns that the much-talked about El Niño could bring some wet weather to the Santa Clara area throughout the weekend, the current forecast shows that players and attendees probably won’t have to deal with showers on February 7.
Although it’s still a week away, Weather.com shows sunshine during the day of the Panthers vs. Broncos game, with highs in the 70s. Kickoff time is 3:30 p.m. California-time, so fans can expect the sun to be shining at that time, with temps dropping into the mid-40s at sunset.
Are you heading to California for the big game, going to a Super Bowl 50 party, or will you be chowing down on pizza, buffalo wings and other game day snacks in the comfort of your own home?
