How to watch and stream the 2022 National Dog Show online and without cable:

The first piece of news is that the 2022 National Dog Show will air on Thursday, November 24 at 12 p.m. in all time zones. The program immediately follows the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on NBC, so no need to switch the channel to get your fill of the nation's most highly-ranked dogs.

If you don't have access to a TV on Thanksgiving, there are other ways to watch the Thanksgiving Dog Show. NBC will have it playing on its official site, so you can head there or see it on the NBC app. The event will also air on NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app. But take note that you may be asked for a cable provider login, so make sure to have that nearby.

Peacock (a.k.a. NBC's streaming site) will air the National Dog Show too. First, you'll need to make an account if you don't have one already. While the streaming site does offer a free basic package, you'll need upgrade to plans that currently start at $4.99 per month in order to watch the live event. Once you've done that, just click on the official website or the Peacock app for viewing.
