More from The Hollywood Reporter
Taking place at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, the AFC Championship game with the Kansas City Chiefs vs. the Baltimore Ravens broadcasts live on Sunday on CBS, with kickoff at 12 p.m. PT/3 p.m. ET. The Chiefs vs. Ravens game will stream simultaneously on Paramount+.
Although a number of stars could be in attendance at the Chiefs vs. Ravens game, we’re expecting Taylor Swift to once again make an appearance to watch Chiefs star Travis Kelce in action. (She recently braved below-freezing temperatures at the Chiefs vs. Bills game with pal Cara Delevingne, who recently starred in MCM’s spring/summer campaign.)
Cord-cutters can watch the Chiefs-Ravens game on Paramount+, or through any live TV streaming service that carries CBS, such as DirecTV Stream, Fubo, Hulu + Live TV and others. However, we recommend going with Paramount+, DirecTV Stream and Fubo since all three services come with free trials that you can use to livestream the game online free.
All web-based services are accessible on your smartphone, tablet, laptop or smart TV.
