49ers vs. Buccaneers TV schedule: Where to watch the game in the US and around the world

The San Francisco 49ers play their first true 10 a.m. PT game this Sunday as they travel to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 49ers played a 10 a.m. PT game when they faced the Jaguars, but the team was in London all week, so it was not quite the same. Sunday's game will feature Dick Stockton and Ronde Barber handling the play-by-play and color work, respectively. It will be interesting to see how Barber, a long-time Bucs player, handles covering his old team.

According to our friends at, this is only modestly covered on broadcast maps. It will be available through all of California, northern Nevada, southern Oregon, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, southwest Wyoming, and much of Florida. Give the map a look for more specifics. If you are not going to get the game, or you just want to watch it with other 49ers fans, make sure and check out our sports bar thread.

If you are outside the US, we're back once again to help figure out how you can watch the game. We cannot provide any illegal streams because, well, they're illegal. There are a couple other options. I believe Verizon subscribers can watch games live with the NFL Mobile app (subscription required). The only other legal online stream available in the U.S. is NFL Rewind, which allows you to watch the games AFTER the fact. If you live outside the United States and Mexico, normally you can look into NFL Game Pass, but this game might not be on Game Pass for some folks.

Canada: Per our friends at A Rouge Point, it appears the game will not be televised on Canadian television. Let us know in the comments if you see otherwise.

United Kingdom: The game will only be available on Game Pass (per NFL UK).

Armed Forces Network-Europe: AFN Prime Atlantic will air the game.

Far East: Our friends at All Sports Network TV will broadcast the game live Monday at 2 a.m. Hong Kong time. It will re-broadcast twice on Tuesday, at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. Hong Kong time. The broadcast will appear throughout Southeast Asia. Check out their map if you live out there.

In previous threads, we had people throwing out all sorts of tv channels around the world where you can watch the game. I'll list them below, but feel free to post any details you find of channels in your neck of the world. I don't expect all of these to be applicable this week, but it will help you narrow your search.

Sweden: Viasat Sport

Brazil: Local ESPN channel

Spain: Canal+ Deportes

Mexico: Foro TV (SKY 106)
