Super Bowl 2014 is almost here, that day when those commercials, half-time show and game become Monday water-cooler talk. So where to watch? The contest for the Vince Lombardi Trophy takes place with a kickoff time set for 6:30 p.m. ET (3:30 p.m. PT) on Sunday, Feb. 2, with the AFC and NFC champs facing off at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The Super Bowl game will air on CTV in Canada, and on Fox in the United States.
Interestingly, Super Bowl XLVIII is the first time the big game has been held in a (potentially) cold environment. The Seattle Seahawks will take on the Denver Broncos in what promises to be an amazing match-up.
Canadians interested in watching the U.S. commercials on TV are probably out of luck unless you subscribe to U.S.-based football-specific channels -- CTV will substitute the American ads with Canadian ones. But you can watch out for Super Bowl 2014 commercials on HuffPost Canada on game day.
Pop superstar Bruno Mars is set to perform at the halftime show, and he's personally invited rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers to accompany him as a half-time act.
CORRECTION NOTICE: A previous version of this article stated that The Super Bowl will air on CBS in the United States. It will actually be solely broadcast by Fox. A change has been made reflecting that, and we regret the error.
