Since FreeTvee is based in Denver you can click here for the Broncos TV Schedule: Broncos TV Schedule for 2016. Ah, but what about Monday night football and ESPN you say. Well, check this out:
“NFL games shown on cable channels (ESPN Monday Night Football and the Thursday night games broadcast on NFL Network), get broadcast on an over-the-air (OTA) stationwithin the designated television markets of the two teams playing – subject to blackouts.” For Bronco’s fans this means that Monday night or Thursday night games will be on HD Channel 20.1
If you are a transplant football fan or fantasy football participant and want to watch the Jacksonville Jaguars vs. the Detroit Lions then you may need to investigate some streaming options.

1. You can get full access to ESPN online and tons more sports content through Sling TV. This will give you Monday Night football via ESPN without requiring a cable TV or satellite subscription.
Update: Good news everyone. The NFL has made a deal with Sling TV parent company Dish network allowing Sling TV to carry NFL Network and NFL RedZone in time for the 2016 NFL season. This means all Thursday night games will be available on Sling TV throughout the 2016 season. The deal was announced on August 3rd 2016. NFL Network will be part of Sling TVs Blue Package, while NFL RedZone will be part of the “Sports Extra” add-on pack.
