So am I misinterpreting NFLN's promo commercial about broadcasting "every single NFL preseason game"?

What they really mean is they're indeed broadcasting it but ya gotta dig deep if ya wanna watch.

Got him, too. Best news I've had all month! I did not realize how soon an actual pre-season game was to us. Even though most of us get to the point of wanting a regular season game in pre-season, it always feels great to hear pre-season is here!

They broadcast every single NFL preseason game... but they don't broadcast it live. You've got to turn on your DVR to make sure you get it and then watch later.

With the NFL.com stuff, you can watch all the games live on your computer (or TV, if you've got your computer hooked up to your TV) for $20. And you can go back and watch any of the games you want afterwards, too.

AND, what's kinda cool, is you can choose which team's broadcasters you want to listen to.

Gotcha. Same thing GP posted last season. Heck, 20 bucks, I might think about it again.

NFL game rewind (https://gamerewind.nfl.com/nflgr/secure/packages?ttv=1&icampaign=Prod_GR_Nav&cvsorc=Homepage.GR.GP_Nav) for $70 gets you every game for the last 3 years without commercials. It also includes condensed games (whole game ~30 minutes) and coaches film.

They need to upgrade the video quality.
They need to have a function where we can play the game in slow motion.
And it's too tricky to stop and start the game in small burst.
I still have to record the game and/or get the torrents to go along with the darn package.

I'm taking back what I said earlier and admitting I'm getting excited with anticipation for this game. I will have little to no thoughts about this game come September 9th, but it doesn't matter, of course. It's been a long, hot summer. I'm ready for the games to begin. I even have my in-season avatar up.

Btw, a question for those who have Time Warner. I see NFL Red Zone on the preview guide and the station is there, but it seems it's not part of the cable package at my current (temporary) residence. Will NFLRZ come to life when the real games begin, or will TW want and extra $10.00 for their trouble?

Thanks in advance. :)
