Oh yes, it’s fall. Football is back

Kids head back to school. There’s a slight chill in the air. And … oh, FOOTBALL IS BACK!

If watching football is on your agenda over the next few months, TDS has you covered. We’ll have hundreds of professional and college games on channels across our lineup.

Here’s a roundup of where to catch all the action:

The NFL
The NFL will broadcast its games this year on CBS, Fox, ESPN, the NFL Network, NBC and more. The regular season schedule is here.  All Monday night football games will be broadcast on ESPN, while the NFL Network will broadcast all Thursday night football games with the exception being Thanksgiving Day. Amazon customers who pay for its Prime service will have access to live stream Thursday Night Football games.

If your love of football stretches across the NFL, catch every touchdown from every game Sunday afternoons with NFL RedZone.   The NFL RedZone is part of the Sports Tier, except in St. George where it is part of the Family Tier.
