NFL Kickoff 2023




It's the most wonderful time of the year! Alright, so not that one...I'm talking about the return of football! It's a great time and after another long offseason (aren't they all?) we're finally ready to kick off a new season of the NFL. There'll be storylines, controversies, and above all...plays that will make you throw your hands up and cheer! Also, if you're a Green Bay Packers fan like me, you'll take comfort in knowing we're finally going to win it all and bring home a fifth Lombardi trophy! Fine, the odds are slim now that Aaron Rodgers is a New York Jet...but it's early. Let me have this.


The season kicks things off on Thursday September 7 when the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs host the Detroit Lions in Arrowhead Stadium. Here's all the info you need to tune in, as well as a few tips to get the most out of the season!

Not watching the game live? Really? I kid...things come up, we know how it is. There’s nothing worse than having to catch up later, hearing that the game went long, and knowing that your recording is going to cut off halfway through the 4th quarter or overtime. Check out our awesome article on how to extend your recording time.


If you're a new Optik subscriber on the new TELUS TV Digital Box platform, relax and kick back. All sports program recordings are auto-extended 60 minutes, just in case!
