Sports fans who watch ESPN+ may be wondering what the title NFL Primetime is. Fortunately, the show has a rich history and is well worth watching. It has been around since 1987, and originally aired until 2005 – an impressive feat in the world of television.

Hosted by Chris Berman, the show was rebooted last fall and is back this season for another round. It will air throughout the 2020 NFL season on Sunday nights, with live streaming on offer. Those who cannot watch it live will be able to watch it on demand each week through Wednesday night.

Fans will also be able to check out updated versions of the show, which are given details of Sunday and Monday night games to check out for further insights and analysis later. Notably, though, fans will not see Berman joined by his co-host Tom Jackson – who was around for the first two decades of the show.

There is no need to worry, though, as someone else is joining – namely, Booger McFarland. He is available to provide his own perspective and analysis on matches, while Berman will be providing information on the latest NFL highlights and commentary. Sports fans may also have noticed that McFarland appears on college football Saturdays on ABC, plus Monday Night Countdown on ESPN.

Fortunately, this show – and many others, such as the 30 for 30 series, the NFL Archive, groundbreaking analysis from the late Kobe Bryant in Detail and top sports such as MLB, NHL, PGA Tour Golf and rugby, can be streamed on ESPN+. This platform can be purchased for $5.99 a month or $49.99 a year using the ESPN website or app for mobile or otherwise connected devices.
