Where can I watch the Dallas Cowboys play live?
During the 2021 regular season, the Dallas Cowboys will be playing on CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC. 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 Cowboy fans need
YouTube TV has all four channels that you need to watch your Cowboys: CBS, ESPN, FOX, and NBC.
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 2021 season. Get this channel for $11 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.)

DISH is the best satellite TV option for Cowboys games
DISH’s America’s Top 120+ plan will let you watch your Boys any week of the season.
With this $80/month package, you’ll get CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC, along with 190 other channels.
You just have to decide if you want a live TV streaming service that you can watch games on your streaming device, smartphone, or tablet. Or if you want satellite TV and about double the 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’re a Cowboys fan and you want cable, go with Xfinity TV
Xfinity’s entry-level packages, Extra and Digital Starter, give the Dallas Cowboys fans all four channels.
We know you’re a diehard Cowboys fan if you’re reading this, but you get to choose if you’d like to be committal or non-committal with this cable TV provider.
Get the Extra plan if you’d like to save $20 each month during your 1-year contract, or opt-in with the Digital Starter plan if you’d like to cancel at any time without signing a contract.
Xfinity TV’s starter plans net you about 11 sports channels, which isn’t a lot. But we like how you can get 9 more sports channels with its More Sports & Entertainment add-on, including the NFL RedZone Channel.
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 the mighty four
Another service with all four channels for your Cowboys game-watching parties is Hulu + Live TV.
We recommend YouTube TV over Hulu Live if you want 20 more channels for the same price (including two more sports channels), and if you want a bigger Cloud DVR storage space.
We recommend Hulu Live to those who want a big on-demand library though, and you must get the $71/month plan if you don’t want ads while binge-watching Friday Night Lights.
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 our No.1 pick for sports, but maybe not for Cowboys fans
fuboTV has ESPN, it grants access to FOX and NBC in most areas of the US, but CBS is only available in some regions.
So we recommend you take on the free trial to see if you get the channel lineup you need to watch all of the Cowboys games. And 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.
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.
If you’re a Fantasy Football player, we guarantee you’ll want this channel.
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 is 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.
And lastly, the Dallas Cowboys play three Thursday games this season, and Amazon Prime Video has got you covered.
You definitely can’t miss the Week 1 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Then you can use this service for Week 12 and 13 when the Boys take on the Las Vegas Raiders at home and then play in New Orleans the following week.
