I LOVE FOOTBALL SEASON!!!
I couldn't wait this year for football season. I was so excited. This year, I had splurged and extended my cable access to digital. ( I am a cheapskate at heart) Anyway, digital cable meant I would now have the NFL Channel.
As preseason approached, I loyally watched every preseason game I had time for and was pleased to see that I could catch many of the games not televised on regular channels on my favorite channel of all time.
Once regular season began, I was pleased to see that I would be able to view the Thursday games, something previously denied to me. I was also looking forward to viewing all of those untelevised Sunday games. Thursday games are not plentiful but I was aware of that going in. What I wasn't aware of was the fact that I still was unable to watch any of the untelevised Sunday games. By the way, I also don't live in area where local games are blocked since my state does not have a team.
I found that when I tune into the NFL channel I get the same football pre-game shows that I get on the other channels and then on Sunday mornings I get an NFL scoreboard. Other than that, I find that I get a lot of top 10 and top 100 countdowns and a lot of commercials for NFL Redzone which I would only get if I fork out even more money!
Stubbornly, I tune into the NFL channel regularly but often find myself wondering if I'm watching NFL or a sports themed VH1 program...Remembering the 80's??
What a letdown!!
