How you go about Fox games aussiedude ? Surely you watch them.
I used to have a family member who lived in the US. but this year im going to be using a VPN and a Over the Top streaming service.


I'll be interested to see what direction the FTA rights take once the current contract runs out.
Given CBS just bought Ten they might look into it, under the current deals they dont have any of the sporting rights that CBS all access has in the US. so if CBS launch all access in australia it wont have sport till new deals are done. and if they do i doubt they will show all CBS games, it will likely just be 2 a week. NFL wouldnt allow it since they sell gamepass.

But the NFL might also ask too much for them next time and a channel either cuts back on coverage or skips them.

I'm fearing the latter.

Can you explain that stuff for me, how much we talking?

I'm fearing the latter.
Nah, I reckon they get decent ratings on their NFL stuff to be honest. They seem to advertise it a fair bit on the footy etc and it feels as if the popularity of American Football is getting better over here

A site that I found last year works well. https://www.nflfullhd.com/ Not sure if you guys know of it or not, its a stream but you can watch it later - like after work. You dont have to watch the games live
The Mods didnt want links to illegal streams.

Otherwise i would of posted a few more for college games.

Used the Pac-12 networks youtube channel on the weekend to watch the Ducks - couldn't fault it (lovely HD stream) - hopefully it'll remain free or at least available.
Its been there for about 3 years now, Seems like it might be free for the season. I would love them to put the regional networks on there one day.

7 took foxtels games really. So I wonder if Foxtel will take it back
No they didnt. 7 took the package Ch10 had. ESPN bought the pay TV rights in Australia and replaced the 1-2 games a week with Redzone and all playoff games. on top of the couple of playoff games and SNF/MNF/TNF

FoxSports would only show 1 game most weeks and might show 2 games a handful times of year. Fox Sports showed the first season or few of TNF games. then ESPN took them in like 2010.

My mistake.

10 use to show the sec game of the week on cbs back in the day. Think they only did it for a year
That was the first year they had the NFL rights. they also showed 1 regional CFB games a week, generally from "Fox College sports" in the 3:30PM window which was like 5AM for us. but that might of been only when there was 1 SEC on CBS game a week
