I won't pay Sky 1p, so I'm set up for a fun season!

Thanks NFL.

Will the SNF & MNF games now be blacked out on Game Pass then? (sorry if this has been answered elsewhere but couldn't find it)

I'm sure a basket of fruit is on its way as a way of apology.

I think this is a shame and will impact the sports growth in the UK. I subscribe to Sky, but know a few casual NFL fans who don't. They'd stay up or record SNF and watch it on Monday. Now they won't be able to do that.

Whilst there are clearly a lot of die hard fans here, the IS games are still reliant of casual fans wanting to go, without FTA games their interest may well dwindle.

It's similar to the participation problems facing cricket and golf. Take away the exposure and it's harder to generate interest in watching/playing the sport.

Can you imagine how knackered Kev will be at the end of it? Not that he makes that much sense at the best of times.

Great news in that I dont have to fork out any more money to watch NFL, disappointing news that one of the matches couldnt be FTA but if no one wants it then Im glad Sky and not BT has taken it.

Hope they put Mike and Nat on maybe as Monday and Thursday hosts?? Although as a taper and, despite paying, not being allowed to hold the TV remote before 10pm I usually whizz thro the natter and the ads apart from Sunday when we get some highlights (but as a long suffering 30+yrs) Raiders fan we havent had many of these!!!!

good this got sorted, the one shame remains that RedZone isnt in HD (and of course Neil still works for Sky.)

I to am surprised at no live freeview coverage, but may maybe nobody wanted the late night games.
