    NFL Network to air 55 games in 25 days

    NEW YORK (June 20, 2005) -- NFL Network will televise 55 games during the NFL's four-week preseason -- all but the 11 televised nationally by the NFL's four network partners (ABC, CBS, ESPN and FOX).

    NFL Network will use the television feeds of local broadcasters and make use of both sets of announcers. For example, if Oakland is playing at San Francisco, NFL Network will use the announcers from the 49ers (home team) for the first half, and then switch to the Raiders' (away team) crew for the second half.In addition to 55 preseason games, NFL Network will present NFL Total Access: No Huddle, a live look-in show that whips around to NFL preseason games in progress. Seven No Huddle shows will air during the preseason featuring action from four to nine games taking place simultaneously.

    Of the 55 games NFL Network will carry nationally during the preseason, six will air live. NFL Network's live games each carry an interesting storyline.

    they did the same thing last season.
    it was pretty sweeet.


    the directv item i'm excitied about, is you can watch any/every game the next day and they edit out commercials and walking back to the huddle so the game is only 1.5 hours long.

    same here even though I have to admit yesterdays and this mornings coverage was slight overkill...regardless it's an awesome network...I really love the "in their own words" shows.

    Of course I would like to see more news about the JETS and it always seems like they focus on the same teams all the time, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, e.t.c., e.t.c.

    They have all this air time and I thought that they can utilize their air time much more effectively because all their NFL Total Access shows are repeats. For instance, each show should concentrate on one division from one Conference.

    This will give the fans a fair chance to find out all the off-season news from their respective teams.

    I love the NFL Network. I've really been enjoying watching the reruns of Game of the Week from the season. Jets-Rams was on the other night...that was a fun one to watch again.

    Unfortunately the Jets never get any attention on NFL Network or most especially ESPN. I was watching NFL Live and all it was about was Raiders, Dolphins, Packers, Vikings, Eagles, Pats.

    I'm not going to watch all of these preseason games but it's really good that they are all provided so you can almost just turn the TV on and catch one. It's also probably really good if your an out of town fan, as you'd get to see your teams preseason games.
