For those of you across New England, or eastern Canada, here is the listing of TV stations that will carry tonight’s preseason opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Note: In the past, the games had also been carried on stations in Honolulu, Hawaii and Anchorage, Alaska. That is apparently no longer the case.
Massachusetts: Boston – WBZ-TV Channel 4, Springfield – WWLP-TV Channel 22.
New Hampshire: Manchester – WMUR-TV Channel 9.
Rhode Island: Providence – WNAC-TV Channel 64. (Reader note: Last year In RI, the Pats/Saints got moved from WNAC (64) to their digital channel MyRI TV, which is 64-2 because of the So You Think You Can Dance finale. That channel is also carried on Cox, Comcast, Full Channel and Verizon in RI. If you have Satellite, you might be out of luck.)
Maine: Portland – WMTW-TV Channel 8, Bangor – WVII-TV Channel 7.
Connecticut: Hartford – WCTX-TV Channel 59.
Vermont: Burlington – WVNY-TV Channel 22.
Hawaii: Honolulu KHNL-TV Channel 9.
Alaska: Anchorage KIMO-TV Channel 13.
Canada: (Quebec/Maritimes): Rogers Sports Net East.
Once again, the duo of Don Criqui and Randy Cross will call the games. Tonight’s game starts at 7:30pm EDT.
The game will be rebroadcast on the NFL Network at the following times:
- Friday, 8/12, 4:00 PM ET
- Sunday 8/14, 7:00 AM ET
- Monday 8/15, 7:00 AM ET
- Tuesday 8/16, 4:00 PM ET
Wow, the broadcast team was in preseason form as well… so many glitches, it almost looked like local cable access. All in all, the foibles were completely diminished by my excitement of having football back.
This is the second time we can’t get to see the n.e. patriots on your station because i have direct tv. I think the majority of people would rather watch the patriots than so you think you can dance. Someone in charge there doesn’t have a clue..
