    I live in Tampa Bay and will be attending tonights game. Does anyone know if any of the other preseason games will be nationally televised?

    I don't mind going out to a sports bar to watch the NFL ticket, but was wondering if we play like on a Sunday or Monday night game....

    Sunday Ticket doesn't cover pre-season games.

    As TomBradyWoot states, NFL Sunday Ticket doesn't broadcast pre-season games, something that could be used as a value inducement for loyal subscribers, but that's a subject for a different thread.

    NFL Network shows all pre-season games on a delayed basis. In other words, they'll feature one game per night live, then replay all other games over the course of the next couple days on a delay. The Patriots game against the Bucs is going to be shown Saturday at 1:00pm EST.

    For those of us living outside of the New England broadcasting region, it's the best we can do.

    I've been a loyal subscriber now for 7? years to NFL ticket. Mr Kraft should send me some coupons or something for all those "Shared Revenue" dollars hard at work....

    Right there with you! I recall when I first subscribed to NFL Ticket, I was told that all early subscribers would have the advantage of keeping the price of the service the same going forward. Ha! We've watched the price creep up and up each year, and then when we used to get our HD pictures for no additional cost, the introduced Superfan and started charging those of us with HD $99 per year extra just for the privilege of having a better picture.

    You'd think that the least they could do would be to offer the pre-season games at no extra charge as an added benefit . . .

    IIRC, the reason that they aren't on DirecTV is that pre-season broadcast rights are handled locally in each individual, market and are not part of the national television contract.

    This is right. You would think there would be a way to get these games on sunday ticket though. I actually enjoy watching the pre-season games. Stress free Patriots football, hell yes!
