It’s fall (or close to) which means a few things—the kids head back to school, there’s a slight chill in the air, and … oh, FOOTBALL IS BACK!
If watching football on TV is on your agenda over the next few months, TDS TV® has you covered. No matter what channel package you subscribe to, you can catch the best from the gridiron.
Here’s a roundup of where to catch all the action:
Everyone can watch the NFL on CBS, FOX, and NBC. Games will also be broadcast on ESPN—including Monday Night Football—so be sure to tune in if you have the Expanded tier. Expanded Plus subscribers, you also have NFL Network which means you can watch Thursday night games (except on Thanksgiving), plus get the full hook-up and behind the scenes on your favorite teams (or rivals).
In addition to the regular season games played in the states, four games will be played in London this season and one will happen in Mexico City. Here’s when to watch (or set your DVR):
- Sunday, Sept. 24: the Baltimore Ravens and the Jacksonville Jaguars play at Wembley Stadium at 8:30 a.m. CST on YAHOO!
- Sunday, Oct. 1: the New Orleans Saints and the Miami Dolphins play at Wembley Stadium at 8:30 a.m. CST on FOX.
- Sunday, Oct. 19: the Arizona Cardinals and the Los Angeles Rams play at 12 a.m. CST at Twickenham Stadium on FOX.
- Sunday, Oct. 29, the Minnesota Vikings and the Cleveland Browns play at Twickenham Stadium at 8:30 a.m. CST on the NFL Network.
- Sunday, Nov. 19, the Oakland Raiders host the New England Patriots at Estadio Azteca at 1:25 p.m. CST on CBS.
Also, new this year, if you’re an Amazon Prime member you can also livestream Thursday night football games.
If all the above isn’t enough to satisfy your appetite for pigskin, consider a subscription to TDS TV’s Sports Tier that includes RedZone! (in both SD and HD). You’ll see every touchdown in every game on every Sunday afternoon all season long…along with lots of other awesome channels, of course.
The 2017 NFL season kicks off on Sept. 7 on NBC with the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots hosting the Kansas City Chiefs. The season will conclude with Super Bowl LII on NBC on Feb. 4, 2018 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
Just like NFL games, you can catch college ball on CBS, NBC, FOX and also ESPN. But there are also other options…
TDS TV offers Big 10 Network (BTN) and New England Sports Network! If you live in a Big 10 state, BTN is part of the Expanded Tier. If you don’t, it’s part of the Sports Tier so you can still opt to watch. The same is true – but in reverse—for the New England Sports Network. Those who live in New England get the network as part of the Expanded Tier. If you live in any other state, you can get New England Sports Network as part of the Sports Tier—make sense? Good!
If you’re into fantasy sports, I’ll take this opportunity to remind you that the Sports Tier also includes the Fantasy Sports Network (in HD, so you must have it as part of your service).
And, last but not least, unlike some providers, TDS TV carries local channels in every community. We won’t list them here (there’s just too many!) but this means you should check your local listings for high school game broadcasts.
Seriously, you have so many options I’m not sure how you’re going to watch it all—but we wish you the best of luck. Happy football season, everyone!
