Sunday Night Football: Schedule + How to Watch With DISH

Sunday Night Football key art

If the weekly NFL broadcast schedule was a meal, Thursday Night Football would be the salad (no one’s favorite, but necessary and occasionally excellent), NFL RedZone would be side dishes (smaller portions, but guaranteed you’ll find something both surprising and delicious), and Monday Night Football would be desert (no explanation needed). That makes Sunday Night Football the main course, and while it might not always be your favorite part of the meal, it is typically the most interesting, well-prepared recipe.

Food metaphors aside, Sunday Night Football on NBC is immensely popular. In fact, it is the most-popular primetime TV show in America, and has been for an unprecedented 12 years running. That leads us to the big question: How do I watch Sunday Night Football with DISH and what games are scheduled for the 2023 season? Glad you asked.

How to Watch Sunday Night Football With DISH

Sunday Night Football airs Sunday nights at 8:20pm ET on NBC (check your guide for channel number and availability). Typically, the SNF crew will broadcast a handful of Thursday and/ or Saturday games as well, plus the traditional NFL Kickoff game, which features the defending Super Bowl champ playing on Thursday night to open up the season. 

Sunday Night Football is typically preceded by the studio show Football Night in America, which begins at 7:00pm ET. Football Night in America features highlights and analysis of the Sunday afternoon games, plus news and features.


Who are the announcers?

For the second year in a row, the announcers for Sunday Night Football will be Mike Tirico, Cris Collinsworth, and Melissa Stark.
