The game should be broadcast on local TV only in the respective teams' home markets. So unless you live in the Cincinnati or Baltimore areas, you can't watch this game without NFL Network.

And yea, game starts 8pm Eastern.

I'm thinking westwood 1 radio is going to love that more than half of football fans in America can't watch the game on TV... ;-D

I get this game on TSN (regular TV) as well as NFL Network and I live in Vancouver. Don't know if TSN is only Canadian though (its in the States right?).

I've heard you Canucks have Thursday Night games more readily available than us here in the States. Never heard of TSN though.

Ok so I guess TSN is only in Canada. But I thought the game was on NFL network too? Game just started. I'm getting the simulcast on TSN but I'm not getting the game on NFL network. Odd.

Yea, the game should be on NFL Network here in the States, but the problem is, the NFL and cable companies are fighting over the fee the NFL wants to charge for NFL Network. So lots of people don't even get NFL Network.

I didn't want to pay for the premium cable package because I don't watch TV all that much, so no NFL Network for me.

But I have the NFL network. I don't think it costs anything Shouldn't I get the game on it? I don't really care either way though.

TSN is Canada's equivalent to ESPN. I think it'd be sweet to have in the US because they show hockey and curling sometimes. ;-D
