The NFL announced preseason opponents in early April, but now we have more specifics on dates and times for the San Francisco 49ers. Here are the four weeks worth of scheduling information. All four games will be in the evening. That is helpful for the two home games given the sun issues at Levi's Stadium. For me sitting out here on the east coast, it is a little less than desirable. But what are you going to do? I've gotten used to the annual 7 p.m. PT San Diego Chargers game, so I suppose I can deal with more games like that.
None of the games will be broadcast nationally, but they will be available locally on KPIX, the local CBS station. Additionally, if you are not in the Bay Area, you can check out NFL.com's Preseason Live option. That allows you to watch all the games live and on replay. If you are in the Bay Area, 49ers games would be blacked out in the 49ers market. So, don't get this if you live in the Bay Area. Last year it was something like $20, but I am not 100 percent certain about that.
