Super Bowl 2024: How to watch 49ers vs. Chiefs in HDR, 4K on CBS, free live stream on Paramount+

It has been circled in bright red on the NFL calendar for months, and now Super Bowl LVIII is finally here … and the ball has been kicked off. The Kansas City Chiefs, back for a second straight time, face off against the San Francisco 49ers at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. It’s a rematch from four years ago as the same two teams met in Super Bowl LIV, when Kansas City rallied to win 31-20. Now, the 49ers and Chiefs are set to face off once again in just two days on the biggest stage.

In what will be a first for the Super Bowl, CBS Sports will have the big game available in 1080p High Dynamic Range (HDR) and 4K HDR. The 4K HDR feed will be supplied to various MVPDs (Multichannel Video Programming Distributor) and vMVPDs (Virtual Multichannel Video Programming Distributor).

Super Bowl LVIII won’t be the only program offered on these feeds. Over 10 hours of coverage will air on the CBS Television Network and Paramount+, and will be available on all feeds offered by the network.

CBS Sports’ pregame, halftime and postgame coverage will also be available on 1080p HDR and 4K HDR.

HDR has a better display detail in shadow and bright scenes and Wide Color Gamut (WCG) displays a more vivid range of colors. The two provide a brighter and more colorful screening. 

This year, Usher will be the halftime show performer, and his performance will be even more vibrant in 1080p HDR and 4K HDR.

Super Bowl LVIII will take place at Allegiant Stadium, home of the Las Vegas Raiders, in Nevada’s first time hosting the game.
