Does anyone remeber that link? I tried searching to no avil.
This will be updated as the season approaches I'm sure, but here's the link you should bookmark

Go to http:the506.com/nflmaps

Here is the sight for where games will be shown. All I noticed was the mighty Skins pummelling the GI ants for the opening week, on of course National TV

Well if it was on-demand the next day how would that help you on Monday if the game was played on Sunday?

I don't understand your question. But what I'm saying is suppose you missed the game-flying back from Michigan after visiting your future in-laws, and your flight gets delayed because Northwest Airlines sucks...for example-and you didn't get a chance to DVR the game, you could watch the game online the next day.

Re: NFL to stream NBC games in real time

Smootsmack:

Since you are in the sportsmedia business, you can explain something to me.

Why is NBC happy to do this? :confused: Every person who views the games over the Internet is one person who is not watching the game on NBC TV. And fewer viewers on TV mean lower ratings and lower ratings mean lower ad revenues.

So, how is this a good deal for NBC - - and particularly their affiliate stations? :confused-

And if this is such a bonanza, why is the NFL keeping all playoff games and the Super Bowl away from these new revenue streams?

I see how fans can like this - - but NBC is paying $600M per year for SNF and now it will be available over a different "channel" and that's good for NBC???

I'm dense; I don't get it. Please help.

Well yeah the affiliates aren't too happy right now. And I don't know that it's such a bonanza at this point that they will add the playoff games and Super Bowl. This first year should give them a sense of their future business model.

However, speaking as someone who deals with the same matters for a competitor I can say that one of the more interesting aspects of watching sports online is that it doesn't cannibalize sports ratings on television. Our most watched sports online are still the most watched on television. We're setting records both online and on television. Still trying to figure out why that is exactly. Primarily it's because the people that are watching online are not those that would be watching on television in other years, but rather those that wouldn't have been able to watch at all in other years. Maybe they're at work, maybe they just have one television in the house, whatever the reason may be.
