What channel is the Super Bowl on?

Wondering how to watch Super Bowl 2023? There are quite a few ways, it turns out

It’s Super Bowl season, people. The stage is set, with the Kansas City Chiefs taking on the Philadelphia Eagles on February 12th. You may have the big screen and all the requisite Super Bowl appetizers, but do you have the right channel?

Fortunately, as a sporting event gobbled up by the masses, gaining access to a good live feed of the big game is not a problem. Here’s what you need to know.

What channel is Super Bowl LVII going to be on?

Super Bowl LVII will be aired on FOX. Those with a television of some kind shouldn’t need more than a power supply and maybe a pair of bunny ears to get the feed. Streamers can catch the game on the FOX app, FOX Sports and FOX Deportes, or the NFL network. Most of the streaming services are carrying the game too, like YouTube TV, Hulu + Live TV, and Sling TV. If you’re feeling cheap, sign up for a free trial from a service like FuboTV and cancel before they start hitting you with monthly fees. The game is set to start at 6:30 p.m. ET, with coverage beginning as early as 12:00 p.m. ET.

This is good intel as the vast majority of us won’t be lucky enough to get Super Bowl tickets. While we highly suggest viewing the game, you might not have the schedule to devote a half day to the game or opt to multitask while it’s on. You can listen via NFL Game Pass and Sirius XM NFL Radio, among others. Countless online sports sites will be streaming live updates as well. And who knows, maybe you’re so superstitious you can’t watch at all.

The championship game comes after all kinds of drama this year in the NFL. Tom Brady just retired (again), the Bills had a player collapse due to a heart attack and make a miraculous recovery, and the Chicago Bears are still terrible. We witnessed Black quarterbacks have incredible seasons (two are facing off in the Super Bowl, by the way), and the Jaguars actually made the playoffs.

There are some cool subplots within the Super Bowl unfolding already. For example, for the first time ever, two brothers will be playing each other in the big game (Jason and Travis Kelce). Kansas City coach Andy Reid is taking on his old team, which may feel a little awkward. And what stars will join Rihanna on stage during what promises to be an outstanding halftime performance?

The fanfare begins early, as it always does, with both teams setting up shop in Arizona a week before the game. It’s part of an airy, seven-day stretch of interviews, changing odds on who will win the game, training, and players showing off their fashionable sides, a bit like the tunnel walk in the NBA. The week adds to the hype around the game, as well as a few more plot twists to the overall story.

There are sure to be viewing parties all over the country and beyond, where local fans will be eager to take it all in. Check out the game at your favorite sports bar if that’s your thing (and do so safely, people), or just lounge around at home in your favorite leisurewear and pull the game up on your big screen, tablet, or phone. You and roughly 100 million other Americans will be doing just that.

Are you ready for the game? We’ve got tips on bowl-friendly snacks, drinks, BBQ, and even the best Super Bowl halftime performances of all time. Come February 12, you’ll be set to see who takes home the Vince Lombardi Trophy in style, fully nourished and ready to be entertained.

Your guide to psilocybin mushrooms: What should you expect?
Psilocybin mushrooms.

In recent years, “psilocybin” has emerged as one of the key buzzwords among the therapeutic community as the benefits of psychedelic therapy have gained traction. For several decades, so-called magic mushrooms were criminalized and dismissed as hippie fodder. Now, psilocybin mushrooms have been cast in a new light as research has increasingly revealed their benefits. Today, you hear them being discussed on everything from Netflix specials to morning talk shows.

The thing is, a lot of people have only the most fleeting understanding of what, precisely, psychedelic mushrooms are. Or perhaps they’ve heard all about their therapeutic potential but they’re not sure what the experience itself is all about.

Side by side: See how a pitcher changed his windup because of new MLB rules
The MLB rule changes are altering the game. Perhaps most noticeably, the new rule book is changing the ways pitchers pitch.

If you didn't think the new rules changed the way big leaguers play the game, think again. The newest rule book additions, covering everything from enlarged, pizza box-sized bases to how infielders can line up before a pitch, are being felt by players and viewers alike. For some players, it's out with the old and in with the new, as the old ways are no longer legal.

Perhaps the most obvious comparative look comes from this Reddit thread, which highlighted a post from @pitchingninja. It shows Luis Garcia, pro Venezuelan baller and Houston Astros pitcher, throwing as he might have last season versus this season, when the new rules took effect. It's a dramatic before and after that shows just how significant some of these MLB rule changes may prove to be.

MLB teams are already finding ways to cheat new rules
The MLB has changed the rules this season. But that hasn't stopped crafty teams from working around them.

Major League Baseball has shaken up the rules this season and people are noticing. Some of the new regulations have resulted in hilarious circumstances, while others are already being ducked and cheated around. There's even been a new pitch clock rule put into place, inspired perhaps by the NBA shot clock and intended to speed up what can be, at times, a very slow professional sport.

There's more, like a pickoff rule aimed to keep pitchers from stalling and trying to throw baserunners out too often. There's also a rule that changes the way infielders can line up, reportedly as a result of long single percentages by batters over recent seasons. But let's get to the juicy stuff: How are teams cheating the new rules?
