    Can anyone tell me if NESN broadcasts the Patriots game during the season? I am debating whether to add this channel for $12 a month or not, so can you tell me what Patriots "Stuff" is on that channel?

    Thanks!

    NESN is owned by the Red Sox

    So that means no Patriots stuff, I assume?? I have never had that channel, so I don't know anything about it.

    They really dont have any Pats coverage at all. The sportsdesk shows highlights and news, but it is probably the crappiest highlight show on TV.

    Great channel if you are a Red Sox fan.

    I am a Red Sox fan too so I might consider getting the channel anyway. I wish they had an all Patriots channel, now that would be cool! :)

    Yes, great if you're a Red Sox fan. I live in Texas, but have Direct TV and am watching a Red Sox game right now; I thought they (Direct TV) would block out the games, but they don't.

    Best Red Sox coverage. The channel is worth it just so you can hear Don and Rem Dog do the games everynight. They help carry me through the summer.

    Is NESN the channel Mike Reiss has a spot on a sports show on, or is that FSNE? I used to have both on DirecTV but can't remember which is which.

    Both Mike Reiss and Chris Gasper will appear occasionally with Bob Ryan on NESN. I think the station that used to be known as FSNE with Felger is now Comcast.

    Re: Pats games on NESN?

    DirecTv is not blacking out the games because this week is a free preview of MLB Extra Innings. If you have that package, the games are available on the MLB EI channels AND the local channels. Once that free preview is up, sometime this weekend, you will no longer see the games on NESN.


    As for the OP, only the CBS and Fox affiliates may broadcast games locally (aside from the cable tv games). Local channels cannot rebroadcast full NFL games, only NFL Network may do that.

    NESN has a contract with the Globe which means it will get their football writers on its talk shows during football season and draft time. Other than that, the station is primarily Sox and Bruins as they have the broadcast rights to each of those teams. The only Pats coverage you will see on NESN is the occasional feature or highlight package on SportsDesk or discussion during one of their PTI-type shows.

    Best thing about NESN is NESN HD. Sox games in HD are incredible, Fenway, speachless. Now if only the Patriots could follow suit and have their own channel in HD we wouldnt have to watch the crappy national coverage.

    We all know that is not possible because of the multi billion dollar NFL TV contracts.

    Re: Pats games on NESN?

    I have DirecTv and I am watching the free previews this week as well. I am thinking about buying the channel for $12 a month though in order to see all the Sox games. I don't have a Directv sports package, aside from NFL Sunday ticket.

    By the way, do they only broadcast the Red Sox? How about the Bruins?

    Re: Pats games on NESN?

    NESN, I believe, has always had that moniker since it's inception.

    FSNE's predecessor may have been SportsChannel. I'm not 100% sure on that one, tho...
