Family-Friendly Super Bowl Broadcast Coming to Nickelodeon

For the first time in NFL history, Super Bowl LVIII will be broadcast in two different formats. Alongside the traditional CBS broadcast, there will be a unique, kid- and family-friendly telecast on Nickelodeon featuring hilarious graphics, silly sound effects, and sideline reporting with SpongeBob SquarePants characters.

Super Bowl LVIII, featuring the Kansas City Chiefs vs the San Francisco 49ers, aims to broaden the appeal of the big game by making it more accessible and enjoyable for families and younger viewers. While football fans can still tune into the regular CBS broadcast, Nickelodeon’s version integrates engaging elements for children. Popular SpongeBob characters like Patrick Star and Sandy Cheeks will provide comedic sideline commentary. There will also be animated graphics and zany sound effects when plays occur.

For those without cable access to Nickelodeon, the game can be streamed through services like Hulu + Live TV, FuboTV, and Philo. FuboTV offers a range of sports programming including NFL games. Philo provides over 70 channels at a budget-friendly price point. Hulu + Live TV grants access to platforms airing the Super Bowl. FuboTV and Philo also offer free weeklong trials.

Adding to the family-friendly fun, the cast of SpongeBob SquarePants will perform “Sweet Victory” during the telecast. This lighthearted song selection fits with Nickelodeon’s silly vibe.

The dual Super Bowl LVIII broadcast marks a milestone in sports programming history. By appealing to a wider, more diverse demographic, the NFL hopes to expand viewership beyond diehard fans. Families can enjoy the big game together through Nickelodeon’s engaging and comedic presentation.
