Rohr Director of Athletics Jack Swarbrick. “Bringing Notre Dame Football to Peacock is just the next step in the evolution of our relationship.”
“We are delighted to stream Notre Dame Football on Peacock,” said Pete Bevacqua, Chairman, NBC Sports. “Peacock exemplifies how we’re innovating as a company, and Notre Dame has consistently been a tremendous partner in making progressive choices for sports programming.”
After the matchup against Toledo, all Notre Dame home games during the 2021 season will air on NBC and stream on Peacock.

Aside from ESPN+, Peacock is the streaming service that is most heavily invested in sports content. Peacock will stream all of NBC’s Sunday Night Football games this upcoming season, and is the exclusive home to the WWE Network library. Additionally, NBC has frequently utilized Peacock in its coverage of the 2021 Olympics.
