49ers vs. Broncos: Game Time, TV Schedule, Live Online Stream

Doug Pensinger

The 49ers open their 2013 preseason schedule Thursday evening against the Denver Broncos. We break down the nuts and bolts on how and where to watch the game.

Holy crap, [site decorum] football is back! It may only be preseason football, but we've got ourselves a game day! The 49ers host the Denver Broncos in a preseason opener that some would qualify as a potential Super Bowl preview. Obviously it's not really a preview since we'll see most starters for no more than a series or two, but let's not let that get in the way of a storyline!

Throughout the day we'll have a run of content to get you ready for tonight's game, but for now, I wanted to break down some of the nuts and bolts of how to watch or listen to the game. We'll be doing this every week for game day to make life a little bit easier. Most of you know when the game is, but sometimes it's easy to forget some of this information, particularly in the preseason.

How many folks will be watching live vs the replay? Will you stick through all four quarters, or do you start to cut away in the second half (or earlier)?
