How to watch this week’s Dallas Cowboys game

What channel is the Dallas Cowboys game on? We list the 2022 Dallas Cowboys TV schedule, as well as the live TV streaming services that carry each game, in the easy to use table below.

Note: The Cowboys vs. Titans game on 12/29 is an Amazon Prime game, but can still be viewed on local affiliates in Dallas and Nashville.

This team does not have a televised game scheduled in the next two weeks.

The most important channels for Cowboy Fans

The most important channels for Cowboy fans will be CBS, FOX, ESPN, and NBC, and of all these, FOX, the channel with rights for most NFC games through 2033, will be the most important for watching the Cowboys.

The table below documents the live TV streaming providers that carry the most important channels for watching the NFL.

Note: Sling TV carries FOX and NBC, but only in select markets.

If you live in Dallas

If you live near Dallas, you will be able to watch the Cowboys with any of these live TV streaming providers.

Watch the Dallas Cowboys on fuboTV

Fubo TV carries FOX, CBS, ESPN, and NBC, all the channels you need for watching America’s team every Sunday.

Watch the Dallas Cowboys on Sling TV (gaps in coverage)

Sling TV Blue will not get you access to ESPN, so Monday Night Football is out, but in Dallas, fans get the local FOX and NBC affiliate with a Sling TV Blue membership. CBS can be added with a special air antenna.

Even though Sling Blue doesn’t offer total NFL coverage, we recommend it here because, with the cost of streaming services rising, some fans will want a budget option.

Watch the Cowboys on DIRECTV STREAM (Best overall)

DirecTV Stream features all the channels you need to stream Cowboys games. However, as an added bonus, it is the only live TV streaming service that carries Bally Sports Southwest, which is the local RSN for Dallas Sports. If you want to watch the Mavericks (NBA), Rangers (MLB), and Stars (NHL), DirecTV Stream has a lot to offer in-market Dallas sports fans.

Watch the Dallas Cowboys on Hulu + Live TV

Hulu + Live TV will give Cowboys fans the channels they need to watch the games every Sunday. The ESPN+ bundle opens up an important avenue of additional sports options, including the UFC and out-of-market NHL action.

Read our Hulu + Live TV review.


Watch the Dallas Cowboys on YouTube TV

I’ve written several times on this site about how impressive YouTube TV is as a platform for watching sports, and NFL in particular. The service carries the most important channels for watching NFL action, has a 4K package, and even a mobile feature for fantasy football fans.

The downside is you need a Google account to start using YouTube TV.

Read our YouTube TV review for sports fans.

When the Cowboys are on national TV

All of the selections above, except for Sling TV Blue, will carry every nationally televised Cowboys game, including playoff games.

  • Thanksgiving Day Game – FOX
  • Monday Night Football – ABC / ESPN
  • Thursday Night Football – Local affiliates / Amazon Prime (next game on 12/29)
  • Sunday Night Football – NBC
  • Playoffs – ABC, CBS, ESPN, FOX

How to watch the Dallas Cowboys out-of-market

On the one hand the Cowboys are on TV a lot, so some fans, even out-of-market, may be content with the games they get on national broadcasts, plus the extensive regional coverage the Cowboys enjoy. For the diehards, who want to watch every game at home, NFL Sunday Ticket is the play.

We haven’t met, but I know you. You are a big NFL fan. You talk and text about upcoming games…

How to watch the Cowboys FAQ

Can I watch the Dallas Cowboys in Austin?

Yes, almost every Dallas Cowboys game will be broadcast in the Austin TV market. The two most important channels will be KEYE-TV CBS 42 Austin and KTBC-TV FOX 7 Austin. Hulu+ Live TV, fuboTV, DIRECTV STREAM, and YouTube TV all carry these channels in the base package.

Can I watch the Dallas Cowboys on Roku devices?

Yes, you can watch the Dallas Cowboys on most Roku devices. Roku has a dedicated Dallas Cowboys channel called Cowboys Now, but you can’t actually stream Cowboys games on it, which is confusing. For step-by-step instructions for watching Cowboys games on Roku, check out my dedicated blog post.
