Never mind Shakira. Forget JLo. The real Super Bowl halftime show you don't want to miss isn't on Fox. It's on Animal Planet. And it's Puppy Bowl XIV.

OK, actually things kick off even before Super Bowl LIV gets going this evening. Starting at 3 p.m. Eastern — that's noon Pacific — you'll be able to watch some 96 puppies from 61 animal shelters in the 16th annual game.

This year's Puppy Bowl runs two hours and also sees the third installment of The Dog Bowl , which features adult and senior doings who live in rescues and shelters.

Some familiar human friends will get in on the action as well, including Jonathan and Drew Scott from HGTV, comedian/actress/writer/producer and all-around badass Whitney Cummings, and musician Emmylou Harris will make appearances as well.

The question, then, is how you can watch Puppy Bowl XVI if you don't have cable. The answer turns out to be fairly simple, as Animal Planet is available on most major streaming services.
