CBS will broadcast the second through eighth Thursday night games. These will also be simulcast on the NFL Network. In Weeks 9-11 and 14-16, including two Saturday games on December 19 and 26 the games will be televised on the NFL Network. These games will also be simulcast by CBS in the participating teams’ primary markets.
If you want to record those games for later viewing, you can pick from a variety of OTA DVRs, such as the TiVo Roamio, Nuvyyo Tablo, and Channel Master DVR+. One problem remains for OTA viewers: The FCC’s blackout rules are still in effect. That means if your local team doesn’t sell 85 percent of its stadium’s tickets within 72 hours of the game’s start, the game won’t be shown in its local area.
