How to watch Saturday’s Bills game locally

ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Unless you live in the Buffalo area, you will not be able to watch Saturday’s Bills game against the Los Angeles Chargers free from home.

Saturday’s game is a “Peacock Holiday Exclusive” and will be streamed exclusively on NBC’s streaming app.

The game will not be on News10NBC because the agreement between Peacock and the NFL stipulates that the only over-the-air broadcasts of the game on NBC affiliates will be in Los Angeles and Buffalo, the home-designated TV markets of the two teams.

So, how can residents in the Rochester area watch the game?

You will need the paid version of the Peacock app, with plans starting at $5.99 a month plus tax. If you have a college student in the home, you can sign up for a student plan starting at $1.99 a month plus tax, but you would need to commit to a full year. Click here to sign up.

Pre-game coverage begins on Peacock at 7:30 p.m. with kickoff at 8 p.m.

The only way to watch the game for free locally is to go to a bar. Many area bars pay extra to get all the games, so call your favorite one ahead of time to see if they are carrying it, and enjoy some wings with it.

Go Bills!
