BRONCOS AT BEARS TV SCHEDULE
The Denver Broncos and shiny new quarterback Peyton Manning kick off the 2012 preseason in Illinois to face the Chicago Bears Thursday, August 9th, 2012. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. local time (6:30 MT).
The NFL does not offer live television coverage outside of local markets for most preseason games, and DirecTV’s Sunday Ticket Package does not kick in until the regular season. So, here’s how, where, and when to watch or listen to Thursday’s preseason opener.
- IN DENVER (or surrounding areas)
- IN CHICAGO (or surrounding areas)
- NON-LOCAL (during the game)*
- AFTER THE GAME
*Locals can use this option too.

The game will feature a simulcast by the team’s broadcast partners. KUSA-TV’s sister station, KTVD-TV (Channel 20), will carry the game on television and KOA Radio (850 AM) will broadcast over the air. Dave Logan (play-by-play) and Ed McCaffrey (color commentary) will call the game with Rod Mackey reporting from the sidelines. A Spanish radio broadcast is also available on 1090 AM/92.1 FM.
