Sometimes, we think that the folks over at Animal Planet are some sort of secret geniuses when it comes to the way in which that they plan for the Puppy Bowl every year. This is an event that in theory, really should just be completely and utterly silly. However, they find a way to make it into this sort of giant, super-fun spectacle, and actually make it an event that draws big ratings and plenty of attention.
One of the reasons that they are able to fully pull that off? Think along the lines of the official livestream, which was created to give you an inside look at what some of the puppies shown off by the network are up to! What you do have to remember here, though, is that the actual Puppy Bowl was really filmed a little while ago, and many of those puppies have since already been adopted. Think of it as a part of the TV magic that goes along with this show, since there is no way you can have this live, and expect the puppies to actually perform the way in which you expect them to.
Still, this stream is a billion kinds of adorable, especially if you are wanting to just look at cute puppies surrounded by a football field, and all of the treats that you can ever hope for. There are actually two separate streams for you to enjoy, and think of as a sort of pre-game warmup. So instead of looking at some talking heads discussing a football game, you can see more puppies! Rejoice!
The Puppy Bowl itself, largely considered to be one of the one of Animal Planet’s biggest events of the year, will air starting at 3:00 p.m. Eastern time. If you want to preview the “event” even further, including finding out more information about the cheerleaders and the halftime show, we suggest heading over here.
