What a crazy season! Amidst a difficult year, it was comforting to still be able to kick back and watch football these past few months. After 17 weeks of games and three weeks of playoffs, Super Bowl 55 is finally here! On Sunday February 7, the reigning champion Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will square off in Tampa for the chance to hoist the Lombardi trophy.

While it may not be exactly the same this year, there's still a ton of fun to be had. This remains a day of good food and (hopefully) great commercials, a fun halftime show from The Weeknd, and a fantastic game. Remember, you can always set up a zoom call or other virtual way to share in the festivities! We want to make sure you're ready for the big game, so here are some tips and info to make sure you get the most out of Super Sunday!

 

EXTENDING YOUR RECORDING

 

Not watching the game live? Really? I kid...things come up, we know how it is. There’s nothing worse than hearing that it went to overtime, knowing that your recording is going to cut off halfway through the 4th quarter. Check out our awesome article on how to extend your recording time. Better safe than sorry! Now be sure to avoid all texts from your friends, spoiling the final score!

Is Telus able to broadcast the American feed and commercials?

Hey @palominodrew! Great question...and unfortunately you're not going to like my answer.

 

Due to a renegotiated trade deal with the U.S. and Mexico, we're once again out of luck in terms of seeing American commercials. About five years back if you remember we were able to, but loss of revenue for Canadian companies led us to this new agreement. Once again the CRTC has again granted Canadian broadcasters (TSN, CTV, etc.) the ability to sub in their own commercials, so they'll do so.

 

For what it's worth, if you have a Twitter account, everything such as trailers and commercials will be all over the place, and you can bet that the next morning YouTube will have everything available to see anyways!
