    2012 NFL Draft coverage



    For those not aware, the draft will not be shown live on TV this year in the UK.

    NFL.com will be streaming coverage and there is radio coverage on Radio 5 Live Sports Extra.

    Interesting/disappointing that neither Sky nor ESPN America have opted to show the first round, anyone know any details on why? I seem to remember SSP1 carrying the NFLN coverage and ESPN America showing the ESPN US coverage last year.

    edit to add: stream starts 12:30 BST (7:30 EST) according to http://www.nfl.com/draft/2012/live

    Think the first pick is scheduled for 1AM, so if you want more coverage than that it'll have to be Off Season Game Pass I would imagine.

    Quick follow up: you can get a month's subscription for NFLN for 2.99 at the below link if you want the earlier coverage

    ESPN's take from the NFLUK forum:
    The NFL Draft was originally scheduled to air on ESPN UK not ESPN America, but I?m afraid we no longer hold the rights to air the Draft this season in the UK and must apologize if you saw a promo promoting this in the UK.

    It is likely you saw a vignette promoting draft prospects and processes which we use to help keep fans in the know about the upcoming draft but do not mention a tune-in time or date as we do not air the NFL Draft on ESPN America. Sorry for any confusion.
