We made it to the biggest sporting event of the year: Puppy Bowl XVII will feature 70 puppies from over 20 different shelters, all available for adoption, hosted by Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart. Whether you’re hoping to adopt (good luck, they go fast) or just want to see them play, here’s how to catch the game.
How to watch Puppy Bowl XVII
Puppy Bowl XVII will air on Animal Planet for cable subscribers and on Discovery+ for streaming. Thankfully, Discovery+ offers a 7-day free trial, so you can use it for the weekend and cancel if you only need it to watch the game. (If you find that you love Discovery+, it’s $4.99 a month after the trial ends.)
Who’s playing and when to watch
Starting at 2 p.m. ET on February 7, team Ruff and team Fluff will compete for the “Lombarky” trophy in the three-hour live event. You can see the puppy lineup on Animal Planet.
Host Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg will provide the color commentary for the afternoon, with guest appearances by football announcer Steve Levy and SportsCenter host Sage Steele. Snoop and Martha’s own dogs will make a cameo, too. You can watch the pre-show at 1 p.m. ET, which will take a look at the past 16 years of the Puppy Bowl.
