KSBY-TV is excited to announce San Francisco 49ers Pre-Season Football games will now be aired here live for the first time as part of an in-state network.

The anticipation is building for NFL football to return to the airways. It is also building for the San Francisco 49ers as they shocked the world in 2012 by going 13-3 and making it all the way to the NFC Championship. Local viewers will now get to see what kind of team they will be this year as Pre-Season games will now be broadcast on the Central Coast.

The following Pre-Season games will now be available for our viewers:

(all times PST)

Friday, August 10th – 6:00p – San Francisco vs Minnesota – on CW 5

Saturday, August 18th – 5:00p – San Francisco @ Houston – on KSBY

Thursday, August 30th – 7:05p – San Francisco vs. San Diego – on KSBY

“We already broadcast regular season games during the #1 rated Sunday Night Football. It makes perfect sense for us to add the 49ers to our lineup as well,” said Kathleen Choal, KSBY President and General Manager. “We are thrilled to give our viewers this opportunity as the 49ers are once again favored to win the division,” she added.

The live coverage is produced through our partnership with KPIX/CBS 5 in San Francisco.
