The 2013 Super Bowl is drawing near, and the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers will kick off at 6:30 p.m. EST on Sunday, Feb. 3, live on CBS across the United States.

The Super Bowl, which will be played this year at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, is not always broadcast on CBS; in fact the nation's largest sporting event seems to change television networks each year.

Super Bowl 2012 was broadcast on NBC, Super Bowl 2011 on Fox, and the 2010 Super Bowl was hosted by CBS.

CBS will be airing a number of coming Super Bowls in addition to this year's, as it will broadcast Super Bowl L in 2016, Super Bowl LIII in 2019 and Super Bowl LVI in 2022, along with Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans in 2013, according to Sports Illustrated. Meanwhile Fox will broadcast Super Bowls LI, LIV & LVII, and NBC will broadcast the 2015, 2018 and 2021 Super Bowls.

In other words, there's no shame in not knowing what TV channel is hosting the Super Bowl, as it travels from network to network each year.

Beyond all the on-the-field action between the 49ers and the Ravens, the 2013 Super Bowl will play host to a range of other exciting entertainment, peaking with 16-time Grammy Award winner Beyonce's performance during the Pepsi Super Bowl XLVII halftime show.

And even before Feb. 3, there will be Super Bowl festivities galore, including the 2013 Super Bowl official Media Day on Jan. 29, where lucky fans and reporters will be able to meet both teams' coaches and players in person as they offer their thoughts about the game.
