      It’s that time of year again. You’ve got the biggest game in the NFL, and you’ve got your Samsung TV. All you need now is to know how to watch Super Bowl 2022 on your Samsung TV.
      If you’ve done any searching for a new big-screen to ring in Super Bowl 2022, one brand that we’re sure is dominating the ads of your browser is Samsung. Nestled comfortably in the top-five brands, Samsung Smart TVs are one of the best ways to experience any sporting event. Packed with industry-leading picture features and an intuitive streaming portal, you’ll be hard-pressed to beat the way the Super Bowl looks and feels on a Samsung set.
      If you’re all about the big game and want to know how you can watch it on that Samsung set you’re close to buying (or already own), we’ve put together this explainer to show you where and how you can catch Super Bowl 2022 through Samsung, and what settings you can use to maximize game. from the kickoff to the post-game celebration.
      This year’s Super Bowl takes place on February 13, 2022, with an expected kickoff time of 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT. The annual event is taking place at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, with NBC holding the exclusive rights to all Super Bowl 2022 live and streamable coverage.
      How to watch Super Bowl 2022 on a Samsung TV
      Year to year, coverage rights to the Super Bowl are handled by the four main network-TV broadcasters — NBC, ABC, FOX, and CBS. In 2022, the golden contract rests in the hands of everyone’s rainbow-colored station, NBC. So what does this mean when it comes time to stream the game on your Samsung set? Well, you’ll need to do your Super Bowl watching through some kind of NBC-supported streaming app. And not to worry, there are plenty of paths to take.
      For starters, there’s Peacock, NBC’s go-to streaming service. While the basic version of Peacock is actually free, you’ll need to be subscribed to the service’s Premium ($5/month) or Plus plans ($9/month) to be able to watch Super Bowl 2022. Similar to other NBC-hosted sporting events, Super Bowl 2022 streams live through Peacock while being broadcast at the same time on NBC stations.
      Another great gateway to Super Bowl 2022 is through a Hulu + Live TV subscription. The cord-cutter’s dream, Hulu’s Live TV add-on runs $70 per month and will net you a big bounty of paid-cable channels and major network stations, including NBC and your local NBC affiliates. Best of all, before and after the big Bowl, you’ll be able to experience the many other benefits of your Hulu + Live TV subscription. This includes access to Disney+, ESPN+, Hulu’s entire library of movies and shows. Hate ads? For only another $5/month, you can bump that Live TV subscription up to an ad-free package.
      NBC affiliate access is also available through FuboTV, whic is an excellent sports-streaming service, YouTubeTV, both Sling TV packages, and DirecTV Stream.
      How to watch Super Bowl for free on a Samsung Smart TV
      Without getting into the nitty-gritty of mirroring web browsers to your TV (which can have mixed results for live events), the-tried and-true means of getting Super Bowl 2022 for free is through an over-the-air (OTA) antenna.
      Available in a number of shapes, sizes, and applications (primarily indoor/outdoor use), an OTA antenna is manually connected to the coaxial input on the back of your TV. Once plugged in, you’ll run a channel-scan that  will pick up whatever TV stations are being broadcast within a certain mile-cap. Basic indoor antennas can typically grab stations within about a 25-mile range, while more advanced outdoor models can often muster up to about 75 miles or more.

      I have been using Sling TV for the $35 blue bundle here in the US. I tried FuboTV but dropped it because there wasn't enough to make up teh price difference from Sling TV. I have not tried Youtube TV, Hulu Live, or philo. I'm curiuous what you are using for live tv and how you like it as a Samsung TV Tizen app. Not throuh Roku, FireTV or Apple TV.
      How do you like the app mostly, channel surfing, loading ,etc. There's a significant price difference between Sling, Philo, and the others.

      I recently signed up to sling tv streaming and have to say its better on apple tv. On my samsung tv it seems to be slower loading between channels. Apple tv the channels change as if its cable.  If I'm in the guide and click on a channel, I have to then click the "watch" button. I wish they would just remove that park, ON apple tv you click right into the channel for immediate streaming. I think its the way its designed, they should tweak it. Amazon Fire tv is not bad but the samsung Sling TV app needs some updating.

      Hello everyone.
      I recently purchased Samsung The Frame 2020 (QA55LS03TAKXXL) in India 2 very important observations from my end.
      I am planning to purchase the Samsung Q600A Soundbar to pair with my TV and wanted to know if my TV supports Q-Symphony. I reached out the support team and they confirmed me that the Q-Symphony function is not a feature of my TV. I wanted to know if Samsung plans to update the operating System to support Q Symphony as this feature is present in Samsung The Frame 2021 which has exact same hardware as Samsung The Frame 2020. Since the support did not have any idea i thought of reaching out to folks on this forum. I am not able to find Amazon Prime Music & Youtube Music apps on the Samsung App Store. These are supposed to be pretty necessary and widely used apps and I am not able to figure out the reason they are not in the store. I would like to know if there are any plans to launch these apps soon. Also let me know if there is any work around to get the apps installed. Thanks in advance for your inputs.
      Best Regards
      Nitin
