The 2022 NFL season is upon us, which means watching the NFL on CBS is a must for football fans across the country every Sunday between now and the new year.
CBS is one of two US networks that broadcast every NFL game on Sunday afternoon/night every week; the other is NFL on Fox. CBS primarily handles games involving AFC teams, while Fox gets the NFC matchups, though there are some crossovers and exceptions to the schedule.
Here’s everything you need to know about watching the NFL on CBS to get your football fix this season. You can also read about how to watch weekly NFL primetime games.
How to watch the NFL on CBS
CBS is one of the four major television networks in the US and as such is required to be carried on all traditional pay television cable subscription packages, which means that if you still pay for cable television cable, you will automatically have access to your local CBS station. Local CBS stations can also be received for free by those using a TV antenna.
If you’ve ditched traditional pay TV services and opted for a live TV streaming service, most of them include CBS as part of their standard channel lineup, like FuboTV, Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV, and DirecTV Stream.
There’s also a pure streaming option to watch NFL games on CBS: Paramount Plus. US subscribers can watch the NFL on Paramount Plus. The ad-free version of the streaming service allows live streaming of local CBS stations, just like the ad-supported version, but only for sporting events like NFL games on CBS.
If UK football fans are wondering where they can watch NFL games since they don’t have CBS or the other US networks, they have a couple of options. NFL games are shown in the UK on ITV, Sky TV and the NFL Game Pass subscription service.
