On TV, US fans will watch Super Bowl 52 play out nationwide on February 4 beginning at 6 pm ET on NBC television with kickoff time set for 6:30 pm ET. (That's 5:30 pm Central, 4:30 pm Mountain, and 3:30 pm Pacific time.)
Up north, CTV traditionally covers the game for Canada while fans of American football can tune in Down Under with live coverage in Australia on ESPN and One HD.
Across the pond, (and five hours ahead of US East Coast time) the live game is seen during the wee hours on BBC and Sky Sports in the UK.
Super Bowl halftime show
Once the two top teams are ready to play, and advertisers have their Super Bowl commercials set -- all we need is a headliner for the halftime show.
Justin Timberlake will be taking the
Super Bowl halftime stage in 2018.
Performers have to be fast and flashy to fill the 15 minutes allotted. It was Lady Gaga who got the spotlight in 2017, and it was a surprise triple bill of Bruno Mars, Beyonce and Coldplay's Chris Martin the year before.
So who will it be this year?
As we reported over the summer, our top pick for Justin Timberlake was confirmed by the NFL in October when they announced that the pop singer would be taking the Super Bowl halftime stage for the first time since his infamous performance with Janet Jackson in 2004.
Now, will history repeat in 2018 with a surprise appearance by Ms Jackson herself? Stay tuned ....
Meanwhile, this year's OTHER big Super Bowl Sunday entertainment -- the 2018 Puppy Bowl -- airs on Animal Planet on the Discovery Channel at 3PM ET.
