NBC once again is the home of Notre Dame football in 2022. And, for the second year running, so is Peacock.
The Fighting Irish haven’t exactly had the best start to their 2022 campaign, suffering a disappointing loss — but expected — to No. 2 Ohio State to start the season. The home-opening loss vs. Marshall, however, has derailed what once looked like a promising season for Marcus Freeman in his first full year as coach.
The remainder of the 2022 season will go a long way in determining the story of this team, especially with opponents such as BYU, Clemson, USC and more looming on the schedule.
As always, NBC will document a fair amount of it. So too will Peacock.
With that, The Sporting News breaks down how to watch Notre Dame football games — primarily broadcast on NBC — in 2022:

How to watch Notre Dame on Peacock
NBC holds the rights to Notre Dame home football games, meaning all but one of those contests (seven in 2022) will broadcast on both NBC and Peacock. The last, UNLV at Notre Dame on Saturday, Oct. 22, can only be viewed on Peacock Premium.
Peacock’s base package does not include access to Notre Dame football, meaning anyone who wants to watch those games via the streaming service must pay for an upgraded service (at $4.99 a month, Peacock Premium is the cheapest).
Another option is fuboTV, which offers a free trial. Fighting Irish fans can watch every Notre Dame home game — except vs. UNLV — via the streaming service. FuboTV will also carry Notre Dame games on supported networks, such as ABC or ESPN,
