Super Bowl 2024 TV channel in Canada

TSN and CTV are the national broadcasters with the TV rights to Super Bowl 2024. If you're a cable subscriber, then you'll be able to watch with those or RDS for commentary in French.

While TSN is a paid-for service, CTV is free. The catch is that you won't be able to watch the Super Bowl 2024 live stream free on CTV without plugging in your cable provider details to CTV's online streaming services on your browser or app. So, if you don't have cable at all, you'll need a different option (as explained below).

In previous years, there has been no way to watch the Super Bowl in 4K HDR in Canada. While TSN does have a dedicated 4K channel, previous championship games had not been selected Ultra-HD coverage.  That may change this year with CBS announcing that it will carry 'upscaled' 4K coverage, but nothing has been confirmed for Canadian viewers at the time of publish.
