Which channel is showing Super Bowl 2014 in the UK?

British based American Football fans will be able to watch the 2014 Super Bowl game live on either Channel 4, or if they subscribe, on Sky Sports.

Both channels currently have a deal which gives them television rights to broadcast the event in Britain until next year.

Where and when is the game being played?

Super Bowl XLVIII (48), Denver Broncos v Seattle Seahawks will take place at the MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey.

The game will be held on Sunday the 2nd of February in the US, though much of the action will happen in the early hours of Monday morning UK time. With the kickoff scheduled for 6:25pm EST and New Jersey 5 hours behind us in Britain, the game will therefore start at 11:25pm GMT.

Some sources are reporting the game will begin at 25 minutes past the hour and others 30 minutes, so I’ve gone with 11:25pm to be on the safe side. Just in case your planning on cutting it fine.

Channel 4‘s ‘American Football Live’ coverage starts at 10:30pm, while Sky Sports 1‘s ‘Live NFL’ show begins at 10:00pm.

For viewers in the US, this years game is being broadcast on the Fox network.

This years halftime show entertainment will come courtesy of Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

    Watch on sky sports instead, better more natural coverage

    Try and look again – making sure that you’re looking at late tonight into the early hours of MONDAY am due to the 5 hour difference

    They didn’t switch channels during the Sunday night games, so there souldn’t be a problem.

    I would warn anyone attempting to record via sky+, unless they specifically state that channel 4 will show it ALL on one channel, expect them to break the coverage up with NO mention on the EPG of this fact.
    I fell foul of this for the first Wembley game this season and was NOT a happy bunny.
    Hopefully, as it is the main event, they should stick to one channel and not break coverage!

      should be fine as it’s a later kick off than the Wembley game. They shouldn’t have too much that should force Channel 4 to stop showing it at 2am
