Good to see the BBC commiting to showing football and it being free to air certainly makes it more accessible to more people. However it has to be well marketed or few people who are not aware of football will realise it's on the red button. On a different note not looking forward to staying up all night to watch with - as I'm aware - no option to record it...But MNF is on our screens, very good news!!!

This is a great move by NFLUK!

I still maintain the opinion that the only way to grow the sport in this country is to have it on a free to air channel. Now MNF and TNF are both on terrestrial! Never thought it'd happen.

I see BBC are streaming online - does this mean these games will be blacked out on Gamepass?

Unfortunate that it isn't on a proper channel and the press release only talks of it being shown on red button and online live, so it is either stay up or miss it completely.

Really going to miss the ESPN countdowns too.

Oh well.

This is about as usefull as a chocolate teapot for UPC customers in Ireland !! As we can't get the red button option. Ok I need confirmation on what's the story then of the rights issue regarding the bbc online coverage ?? Is this uk only ( as is usually the case) or will republic of Ireland viewers be able to watch it? Could you find this out please?
