I thought it was NFL-N only?
Yup ABC has it too.
For locally I believe...
?? I have Dish and it says ABC is showing 'Ugly Betty' at 8
So i spent $40 to get NFL N just so they can show it on abc???
It is on the ABC affiliate in Boston only, not the whole network.
Heh. I was just on my way out the door to a sports bar, cause I figured it was NFL-N only. Awesome.
ah.....i was getting excited there for a moment....
There's an FCC law that requires NFL games to be available over-the-air in the local markets of the participating teams (assuming no blackout). Thus the NFL-N game will be on somebody's over-the-air affiliate in both Boston and NY.
The same holds true for MNF on ESPN. The SF/AZ game the other night was on a local channel in addition to ESPN where I live.
It's on Ch. 5 only in Boston - the NFL has a policy allowing the home fans to watch the game for free - making everyone else get the NFL network.
Unfortunately the NFL didn't get the memo that CT, RI, NH, VT and ME are also part of New England.
