Sky Sports, which covers the NFL here in the UK has just published its plans for the 2007 season, and is offering us the broadest coverage ever. For Pats fans, the best immediate news is that the pre-season game against the Panthers will be shown. This is the first time they have aired a pre-season game live, and is great because we will get a chance to see the second stringers and the rookies and get some idea of them. On to the regular season and this year they will be showing games live on Sunday at the 1pm, 6pm and evening game slots, and will be offering a choice of three games at 1 and 6, which means the chance of the Pats being on live is better than ever before. They are also going to show far more support packages before with things like NFL Total Access etc. We'll probably end up with better coverage than a lot of people in the US. Marvellous.
