Watching this year’s Blue-Gold Game will require more prep work than remembering the channel number for NBC Sports Network.

Notre Dame’s spring football scrimmage (Saturday at 12:30 p.m. EDT) won’t air on traditional television this year. Instead, it will be streaming live on Peacock, the relatively new streaming service for NBCUniversal.

Access to the live stream will be free, but it will require a device with access to Peacock and an email registration for a Peacock account.

Xfinity and Cox subscribers may have access to Peacock through their cable boxes if they have certain models. Peacock can also be downloaded on a number of connected TVs (LG Smart TV, Vizio TV and Android TVs like Sony Bravia), streaming devices (Roku, Apple TV and Chromecast), and gaming consoles (Playstation and Xbox).

Amazon Fire TV and Samsung TV are not currently supported by Peacock.

Mobile devices and tablets with Android and iOS (Apple) operating systems can download Peacock through their various app stores.

Peacock can also be watched on a laptop or computer using the proper versions of these four web browsers: Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Microsoft Edge.

The Peacock live stream will feature NBC Sports' Paul Burmeister as the play-by-play announcer, former Irish wide receiver Corey Robinson as the analyst and current Notre Dame student Caroline Pineda as the sideline reporter.

The Blue-Gold Game will be available on-demand following the live stream both on Peacock and on Fighting Irish TV, a separate video platform on Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and Android TV.
