Most Lions games will be on the Fox Broadcast channel for the 2023 season.

However, there’s going to be 8 weeks this year where you’ll need to go to other channels like ESPN, CBS, and even your Amazon Prime Video subscription.

We wish it was easier to find the football games for our favorite teams so we decided to help everyone out and lay out what days, times, and the channels Lions games are on this year.

Hope you find our work helpful, and we hope the Lions make it to the playoffs this year.
