Excellent! I'm not too bothered about having the draft on TV, but it ios nice to have the online option to see it.

I'm disappointed it's only going to be available online, the broadband speed in my area is not great, but thanks for the quick update anyway, Hank. At least I won't be sat around wondering whether it will be on all April.

I don't know if this was answered last year, maybe Hank or somebody can answer it, but why does the draft get shown on ESPN America in Mainland Europe, but not here? I know we don't get the same feed, that's not my point.

ESPN America are obviously interersted in showing the draft, as virtually all of the rest of Europe gets it. Sky obviously don't have any exclusivity as shown by the great news regarding MNF. so what's the problem?

Is it simply that Sky has the option, but choose not to show it, or is it something else?

Would have loved it live but not a bad result. Thanks for the update Hank.

Well as long as the hilights are longer than 1 hr and actually include some of the discussions around the table. I don't just want to see each draft pick being called out!

Let's see how Sky deliver.

Have to agree with this comment. The same thing was said last year and it turned out to be a shambles. Can NFLUK categorically assure UK fans that there is enough capacity for demand on the NFL website and that UK IP addresses will not be blocked??

Yeah very good point. This did happen last year. Fingers crossed it will work fine in 2010.
