On TV, US fans watched Super Bowl 51 play out live nationwide on February 5 beginning at 6 pm ET on Fox 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 Down Under tuned into live coverage in Australia on ESPN Australia 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
The Super Bowl goes gaga! -- as Lady Gaga takes
the stage at this year's
So who was it this year?
After Lady Gaga belted out the National Anthem just before game time last year, she was tipped to take the main stage this year with an official announcement by the Lady herself with a Tweet in September.
Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez also made the cut according to early online polls, but it was Lady Gaga who was chosen by the NFL to entertain the masses at the 2017 Super Bowl.
Meanwhile, this year's OTHER big Super Bowl Sunday entertainment -- the 2017 Puppy Bowl -- aired on Animal Planet on the Discovery Channel at 3PM ET.
