The 49ers have turned into must-watch television, and they'll be happily rewarded with plenty of primetime games in 2024.

One of the benefits of being a perennial Super Bowl-contending squad is that fans across the country typically want to watch you.

Those fans may love or hate you, but they still want to tune in.

Despite falling short in the Super Bowl against the Kansas City Chiefs last February, the San Francisco 49ers remain a powerhouse with a stacked core of players on both sides of the ball. Extreme talents like running back Christian McCaffrey, defensive end Nick Bosa, linebacker Fred Warner and wide receiver Deebo Samuel are fun to watch on television.

Additionally, fans have no problem following the storylines of others like tight end George Kittle and quarterback Brock Purdy.

Unlike bottom-feeding teams, the Niners deserve plenty of national attention.

And they'll receive it with the maximum of six primetime games that'll be nationally televised.
