    That blows. The final game of the season and potentially a 16-0 game. Really is a damn shame.

    The situation here in SE NH is unclear. Comcast here carries all the Boston TV stations including the one allowed to broadcast the game locally, but will the NFL force Comcast to carry a different 'local' channel that evening to customers outside the OTA range? It's unclear.

    NFL network is offered in RI cable packages.

    But i think that the NFLN will strike a one time deal with all cable providers, to show this game if we beat Miami anyway.

    It would be a good free promo for the network. A win/win.

    Up in here in Maine, we don't even have the choice of getting the NFL Network.

    You obviously have not been following along...

    The Colts fans got screwed.

    The governor of Wisc couldn't get a special deal to see the Packers take on Cowboys.

    Neither of those games had any historical impact. trust me. All cable providers will be carrying this game. Even if it's on a one time only basis.

    there is toomuch $$ to be made by everyone involved.

    Can anyone tell me what channel the Pats-Giants game will be on? I thought it was Channel 5, ABC. Also, is it a 8pm start? I have to program the old VCR before I leave.

    Satellite is an alternative, but my area is Time Warner, so, unless I was to buy satellite, I don't even get the option to watch it. I'll probably find a local bar that will have it.

    VCR? I think the History Channel has a program on those coming up.

    Sat at 8:15 ABC Boston Channel 5

    Comcast DOES list the game on Channel 5 for my area code in NH!

    P.S. Patriots All Access is listed for 7PM running an hour and a quarter on ABC 5 as well.

    Have you been following this saga here:

    http://the506.com/yabb/YaBB.pl?num=1198108921

    "If you live in Mansfield Mass, which borders Foxboro (where the Patriots play) your game will be blacked out on the local Boston station (WCVB Channel 5). Mansfield Mass is literally 5 minues away from Gillette Stadium but it lies in Bristol County, which is part of the Prov RI not Boston DMA.

    If you have NFL Network you are ok, but if not better get to Radio Shack and get an OTA Antenna"

    THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THAT !!!!

    I am sure the NLFN is Loving this. This could create the riot they wanted with the Cowboy game that never really materialized.

    I GARUNTEE that this game will be broadcast on every cable provider in NE (if the Pats beat the Fish on Sunday).

    It will generate HUGE dollars for the NFLN. There is no way they miss that boat.

    Fret not Patriot faithful. You will get to see this game, on your local cable provider. FOR SURE. ;)

    This has the potential to be the most-watched NFL non SB game in history. the league is, i understand, under pressure to work out some sort of one time deal so that it's broadcast across the country.
