It might be because the game is being shown on another network. In the US, I think for people in the local markets they get it on local TV while the NFL Network is blacked out.

Just get the most simple plan and package from Dish Network.. only like 30 bucks per month for 4 TVs (compared to like 50+ for the most basic plan offered by Time Warner). ;-D

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.



So I just clicked the NFL Network on and it's not the Ravens/Bengals game, it is some stupid "Football Night in America" show.

WTF?

There are at least 5 companies that are not airing the game on their NFL network affiliate due to one reason or another. This might answer some questions.

If you get NFL Network, you still might not get the games. The network wanted extra $$$ from each of the cable companies that carried it or they'd feed alternate programming during game times. I know of at least 5 companies that don't have the games.

Friggin' NFL. This blows.

Can't get the game on the local ABC affilliate.
Can't get the game on the NFL Network.
Can't get the game on NFL Sunday Ticket on DirecTV. (it's not Sunday).

This is plain stupid.

NFL and their lame ass NW do battle with the cable monopolies and who ends up the victim: US!!

From here on out, I only watch Arena Football !!

Well, the sports bars are happy. I went there and the place was absolutely packed.

As far as the game, what a shame that so many people missed this one. It had all the feel of a playoff game. Absolutely fun to watch. Glad I didn't decide to skip it...I almost did.
