    NASN are frustrating but I've gotta believe their hands must be tied in some way to what they can and can't show NFL wise. With NFL Total Access there's no excuse unless the NFL are planning to put NFL Network onto our screens in the near future, but with regards the games I don't whether it's the fact that Sky choose games rather than buying a package that restricts NASN from buying some games, it has to be something because there is no way any company would be stupid enough to intentionally put out the product they are putting out at the mo.

    That being said this is the same company that is giving me their broadcast free of charge at the moment.

    question for the UK guys. have you ever heard of the "slingbox"? i do not know much about it. just hear commercials (adverts, i believe that is your word for it) on the radio.

    you hook the device up to your computer and to your tv. you then can watch your tv from anywhere on a laptop or other computer. i think that is how it works. not sure if one "slingbox" hooked up is able to allow multiple people to watch, but possibly one of your more computer savy friends here could get this item and hook it up. you then could watch the game on his tv every week. he would just need to cue up the proper channel for you, unless it allows you to change stations, which it could.

    anyway, just a thought. not sure if i am making sense or explaining it enough. the "slingbox" is available at Best Buy from what i understand. good luck.

    I don't know if this Sky TV deal is news to y'all Limies, but someone just posted it on a Redskins board.

    The National Football League has awarded Sky the UK and Irish rights to the NFL under a new four-year deal, up until the end of the 2010-2011 season. The new arrangement will bring an increase in the number of games shown live in the UK.

    From next season onwards, NFL fans in the UK can look forward to:

    * More than 100 live matches each season; double the current commitment.
    * Extra live games through the Sky digital interactive service.
    * All 10 Playoff games in January.
    * Super Bowl live at the end of each season.
    * Live and recorded pre-season and NFL Europe League games.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The new deal means that you can see more live games every Sunday night from the start of the 2007 season than you are getting now even with the extra red button matchups, fans in the UK can look forward to the 2007 NFL Draft on Sky, preseason action, and an increased interactive presence. This deal also covers the NFL Network’s Thursday and Saturday games for the current season, meaning that Sky will pick up seven extra games this season, including mouth-watering matchups between Baltimore and Cincinnati (Thursday November 30th) and Dallas and Atlanta (Saturday December 16th).

    Well spotted Mista T. - I assumed SKY would show that match, at least that is confirmed now. The funny thing is SKY have no other sport to show on at that tiem in the morning, I can not understand why it took so long to get it going. With the demise of NASN I think most people will move back to SKY.

    With their ability to pick up a couple of games late in the day they should inprove the quality of chosed matches no end. For once we benefit from having a good start to the season.

    Well if they can transfer they're technology from the Champions League service, there's no reason why we shouldn't be able to choose from up to six games at once to watch.
