Curious about the opening week of the XFL 2.0? Here’s how to watch

It’s officially XFL season, and opening weekend is hugely important for the league’s second attempt. Will it sink or swim this time around? Last year’s failure of the AAF looms large, but Vince McMahon has enough of his own money to at least keep this afloat for as long as he personally wants to.

Will the world’s hunger for football be strong enough to keep this league around long term or will curiosity quickly fade as people embrace the offseason events the NFL has to offer?

I’m at least a little interested in the league this time around, as it appears they are more serious about making this a legitimate sport rather than a spectacle like last year. If you share in that curiosity, here’s how you can watch all four games of opening weekend of the XFL.
