With an exciting NFL season ahead and viewership as high as ever, having access to games is a must for all businesses and restaurants. TDS TV+ for Business offers a variety of packages that allows businesses easy access to CBS and FOX for regional Sunday afternoon games, NBC for Sunday night games, ESPN for Monday night games, and NFL Network for NFL Gameday Live all Sunday.
For businesses and restaurants that want the premier NFL Sunday viewing experience, TDS TV+ for Business offers NFL Redzone as an a la carte service available for purchase. NFL RedZone brings you every touchdown from every game every Sunday with no commercials. It is available for a one-time charge ranging from $90-$110, depending on the size and occupancy of the purchasing commercial establishment. With an upcoming free preview, all commercial customers will have access to a free preview of the NFL RedZone at their business on Sunday, Nov. 5!
It’s clear the NFL is as popular as ever as viewers everywhere have been tuning in to watch the dramatic start of the 2023 season. Week 1 games averaged 18.7 million viewers, with Thursday night’s opening matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Detroit Lions being the most popular, bringing in 24.75 million viewers to NBC.
Following Week 2 of the regular season, the NFL saw a 2% growth in viewership compared to last season and its highest viewership since 2018. Additionally, Week 3 of NBC’s Sunday Night football matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Las Vegas Raiders was, as usual, a runaway leader in primetime—averaging 19.21 million viewers (up 6% in ratings 8% from last year’s week three matchup).
This year, NFL fans are still trying to figure out who are contenders and who are pretenders. Out west, running back Christian McCaffery and the potent rushing attack of the San Francisco 49ers will try to claim their franchise’s first Super Bowl in 28 years. Since trading for McCaffery in 2022, the 49ers have only lost two games, and have been dominant both offensively and defensively.
Week 3 was proof that any team can win on “any given Sunday,” as the Arizona Cardinals took down the Dallas Cowboys, who had emerged as a serious Super Bowl contender. Division rivals and betting-favorites Philadelphia Eagles will look to stand in the 49ers’ and Dallas Cowboys’ way, as star quarterback Jalen Hurts attempts to bring his squad back to the Super Bowl after a disappointing loss to the Chiefs in 2022. The Eagles will meet the Cowboys on Nov. 5 at 3:25 p.m. CST on FOX for the first of two divisional matchups.
Whatever package you choose, TDS TV+ for Business will give you access to the biggest and best games the NFL has to offer. With TDS TV+, you and your customers won’t miss a play this season.
