    I don't live in the Houston viewing area any longer so I don't get CH13. Is there any other place to watch the preseason games. Are they anywhere on DirectTV?

    Thanks

    IIRC, NFL Network shows every single preseason game. You will just have to check when they are re-airing the ones for the Texans and record them.

    Well, we'll have to see what happens this season but...

    I normally record the games from the NFLN when they re-air.

    During the actual game, I try to find a TVANTs or other way to watch the game on line. The quality is usually pretty bad. I also keep an NFL.com window open to the game to get updates (although they're not always fast and they're not always right). AND, I stay on here and participate in the Game thread. People watching the game post stuff as the game's playing.

    Dude! I didn't know you're in Dallas. Has your "location" always been Dallas?

    Define "always".

    I'm actually in Flower Mound, just north of DFW and south of Denton. I've been here ever since joining the board.

    Do I win a prize!? :bender:

    Are Cowboys preseason games on in Houston? They should remove them if since they refuse to air anything regarding the Texans up there.

    I grew up in Houston. I'm a UH grad. Met my wife at UH. We were both programmers for M.D. Anderson. We've lived in 15 different places (4 different states) over the past 24 years and we've lived in Flower Mound twice.

    It killed me when my Oilers moved to Tennessee. And I was ecstatic when I got a team back. I've got pictures of me at a power lifting meet in 2000 with a Texans tee shirt on.

    My mother would disown me if I were a Cowboy fan.

    Hey Pencil Neck, we should get together for Texans games. I live in the Frisco/Mckinney area. I know the other guys up here on the board meet up but it's far away from me. That's if you're up for it.

    Another bonus, I'm also a UH alumni. :)

    Yeah, definitely.

    I've met up once with some of the other guys: ArlingtonTexan, Ozzo, Hoth-Boy, a few others. I've tried to meet up with them a couple of other times but it didn't quite work out with my schedule.

    Ping me when the games start up and we'll try to coordinate something.

    Gamerewind.NFL.com is unveiling a new package this season.

    They will be broadcasting EVERY Preseason game Live & In-Demand
    on their network. I've subscribed to it for the last two seasons, so
    it's well worth it when I haul my laptop everywhere.

    Oh, well. The 1st game is still a WEEK away.

    Thanks much. I had Time Warner last season. I don't know why I couldn't find them. Operator error I'm sure. Will have it this year though!

    Thanks for all the replies.

    I am trying to weigh my options of watching the Texans here in LA.

    Is sunday ticket/sports bar my only options?

    Thanks in advance for any advice!
