    Pats/Giants to be simulcast on CBS and NBC [mergedx2]

    The breaking news box says Pats Giants game to be Simulcast on CBS and NBC.

    I assume this is for the local market? Be weird for it to be on two channels.

    Damn, how? Cool if it's true. NFL Network should commit ritual suicide if this is legit.

    Re: According to ESPN News CBS/NBA to air Pats/Giants

    It is not unusual for me to the game on two channels. This is the case when it is on Channel 5 (Boston) and Channel 9 (Manchester) or when the game is on ESPN.

    Apparently, this time there will be overkill. I will get the game on two Boston network stations, Channel 9 and NFLN.

    BTW, this will be huge plus for NFLN.

    Re: According to ESPN News CBS/NBA to air Pats/Giants

    Although I am happy for all those Pats fans who weren't going to see the game who are now, I really hope it wasn't because of John Kerry. I thought Kerry really overstepped his authority as a senator on this one. I don't believe it is the US Government's right or responsibility to make sure that Pats fans throughout the country get to see the Pats play for 16-0. Him threating Congressional hearings if the NFL didn't make this game available to everyone reminds me of what is wrong with our government.

    Congressmen and congresswomen should be focusing on real matters of the country and stop using their authority on silly things like this. Is Kerry going to tell us that there weren't real issues that affect people's livelihoods that he couldn't have spent this time dealing with?

    Does this mean that I'll be able to watch it on the local NBC or CBS affiliate in Philly? If so, then I'm very happy. I was resigned to missing this game.

    Makes sense for the NFL, Patriots games have been getting HUGE ratings. It may hurt the chance of getting NFL Network on more cable companies but it'll bring in TONS of $$$.

    It's because it'll bring in TONS of advertising $$$ - Kerry will, no doubt, take credit for it though.

    CBS, NBC to simulcast Patriots' attempt at 16-0

    http://www.startribune.com/sports/12835912.html


    The NFL has arranged with CBS and NBC for an unprecedented three-way national simulcast of the NFL Network telecast of Saturday night’s New England Patriots- New York Giants game when the Patriots will try to become the first NFL team to go 16-0 in a regular season.

    Well, it will expose the rest of the country to the ineptitudes of Bryant Gumble's play by play.

    I'm not sure this is actually a huge plus. This could open the door for the NFL not being able to show any games exclusively on the NFL Network.
