There’s no way you can miss Dak Prescott build on his historical numbers or watch the Cowboys come back from a rough start of the season. I mean, c’mon. The Dallas Cowboys are America’s Team.

You can catch the Dallas Cowboys on ESPN, CBS, FOX, NBC, and NFL Network, but we’re going to help you find the best way to get all of these channels. You’ll be able to watch the games on your TV, smartphone, or tablet.

Let’s hope we don’t watch another upsetting loss, like in Week 4 to the Cleveland Browns (who even saw that coming?).

When do the Dallas Cowboys play?

Feast your eyes on the schedule. Make sure you find a Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliot replacement for your fantasy team in Week 10.

Where can I watch the Dallas Cowboys play live?

The Dallas Cowboys will be playing on ESPN, CBS, FOX, NBC, and NFL Network. So, we have suggestions on how you can watch your Boys if you’re in or out of the region.

You’ll still be able to yell at your hometown team from across the country. Gotta keep the Boys in check, we understand.

YouTube TV has all of the channels you need

YouTube TV has all five channels that you need to watch your Cowboys: CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC, and NFL Network.

Not only does YouTube TV give you that sweet simplicity, but it’s also one of the few services that offer the NFL RedZone Channel this 2020 season. Get this channel for $10.99 per month with the Sports Plus add-on, and you’ll get to see every moment a team is in the red zone during the Sunday morning and afternoon games.

You’ll never miss an exciting moment. But you probably already know Dallas’s defense won’t likely get featured. (We have to face the facts.)

If you want to know more about YouTube TV, head on over to our full review.

DISH has all five channels too

DISH’s America’s Top 120+ plan will let you watch your Boys any week of the season.

With this package, you’ll get CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC, and NFL Network. But you just have to decide if you want a live TV streaming service that you can watch on your streaming device, smartphone, or tablet. Or if you want satellite TV and about 40 more channels, go with DISH.

Check out our DISH review if you think this might be the service you’d like to watch all of your Cowboys games with.

If you want cable, go with Xfinity TV

Xfinity’s Starter package will give you four out of the five channels that you need. If you want NFL Network, you’d have to pay $20 more for the Preferred package. But the Preferred plan doesn’t even include CBS, ESPN, FOX, or NBC.

No, thank you.

So, the Starter package is where we need to put our energy. Like, the same positive energy we need to put toward the Cowboys for a better 2020 season.

Check out our Xfinity TV review if you’re considering a cable TV provider. It’s also our number one choice for cable TV overall.

Hulu + Live TV also has four out of the five channels

Just like DISH, Hulu Live has CBS, ESPN, FOX, and NBC, but not NFL Network.

So between these two, you’d have to decide if you want cable TV or a live TV streaming service. Oh, and Hulu Live is also about $5 cheaper, and you don’t have to worry about fees. But you do get less than half the channels.

Get the $71 Hulu Live plan if you don’t want ads. No football fan wants interruptions in the middle of a touchdown play.

If you want to watch Dallas on Hulu + Live TV, but you’re not quite sold, jump on this 7-day trial. If you want to read more details about the service, check out our review.

fuboTV is considered average when it comes to Cowboys coverage

fuboTV has ESPN, FOX, and NFL Network, which is still nice considering not every provider has NFL Network. But fuboTV is also one of only a few services that offer the NFL RedZone Channel.

The RedZone Channel is perfect for the fantasy football player because you can watch Dak making those crisp passes, or you can watch Travis Kelce catching a pass for a touchdown or Derrick Henry plowing through the defenders.

If you like to watch your fantasy team in real-time, find more information on fuboTV and the Sports Plus add-on in our fuboTV review.

How can I watch my home team when I’m out of the region?

We have four suggestions. That’s right, four: NFL SUNDAY TICKET, NFL RedZone Channel, NFL Game Pass, and Amazon Prime Video.

But keep in mind, they all have their caveats.


NFL SUNDAY TICKET is only available with DIRECTV, the satellite TV service. It’s the only service that gets you all out-of-market NFL games. Sounds dreamy, right?

You just have to be OK with second-year price hikes. But it could be worth it if you’re a Dallas Cowboys fan but live in Salt Lake City. If you sign up for the CHOICE plan ($64.99/month) or above, you can get NFL SUNDAY TICKET for free for one season (which is normally about $400.00/season). Check out all the info in our detailed review.

NFL RedZone Channel

We have already mentioned NFL RedZone Channel enough, but don’t forget … it’s an option. The caveat is you don’t get to see the full game, just the highlights.

NFL Game Pass

NFL Game Pass is something you could get with NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX, or you can get it as a standalone service for $100. This service for those who don’t mind watching the game after it’s already aired.

NFL Game Pass gives you access to full broadcasted replays that you can watch anytime, 45-minute condensed games for when you have limited time, and all-22 angle coaches film for when you feel like breaking down film like the pros.

Amazon Prime Video

And lastly, if your team is playing on a Thursday night and you have an Amazon Prime membership, you’re in luck. These are the games you can watch on Amazon Prime Video:

  • October 8: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Chicago Bears
  • October 15: Kansas City Chiefs at Buffalo Bills
  • October 22: New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles
  • October 29: Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers
  • November 5: Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers
  • November 12: Indianapolis Colts at Tennessee Titans
  • November 19: Arizona Cardinals at Seattle Seahawks
  • December 3: Dallas Cowboys at Baltimore Ravens
  • December 10: New England Patriots at Los Angeles Rams
  • December 17: Los Angeles Chargers at Las Vegas Raiders
  • December 25: Minnesota Vikings at New Orleans Saints (Christmas Day on a Friday)

Recap: What’s the best way to watch the Dallas Cowboys?

If you want to stream the Cowboys games, there are three services to choose from:

  • YouTube TV: For $64.99/month, you can get CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC, and NFL Network among 85.
  • Hulu + Live TV: You can get CBS, ESPN, FOX, and NBC in its 65-channel lineup for $64.99–$70.99/month.
  • fuboTV: Get ESPN, FOX, and NFL Network with fuboTV’s Family package which includes 105 channels for $64.99/month.

If you want a traditional TV experience, we recommend these two services:

  • DISH: You’ll get CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC, and NFL Network for $75/month with DISH’s America’s Top 120+ plan with 190+ channels.
  • Xfinity TV: Xfinity also has all five channels for $71/month and 140+ channels.
