Super Bowl 53 will see the New England Patriots attempt to win yet another NFL crown when they take on the Los Angeles Rams. With The Roar’s TV guide to the big day, you won’t miss a moment of the action from the biggest match of the NFL season.
The Super Bowl, renowned around the world as one of the biggest sporting events on the international calendar will kick-off on Monday, May 4 at 10:30am (AEDT), with the Mercedez-Benz Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, hosting the match this year.
The host of the Super Bowl is pre-determined well before the event, with it being played in a different city each year.
Last year, Tom Brady’s Patriots fell to the Philadelphia Eagles, but they are back in the big game this time around to take on the Rams, who had a controversial win over the New Orleans Saints a fortnight ago in the Conference championships.
There will be two options to watch the big match in Australia, with one a free to air option and the other through Foxtel, for which you’ll need a valid Foxtel TV subscription complete with the sports package to access.
ESPN will broadcast the match on Channel 508 through Foxtel. Their coverage will see a full build-up to the match from the USA, with the network predominantly based in America. Their coverage will begin at 2am (AEDT) with NFL countdown running until 6am (AEDT), at which point the show will be replayed until 9:30am (AEDT), when the coverage from Atlanta begins for another hour of pre-game.
On free to air TV, you will be able to tune in from 9:30am (AEDT) on 7Mate – one of the Seven Network’s secondary stations – for the pre-game show before kick-off.
Both networks will also have their coverage available to stream online.
