NFL game broadcast selections

NFL game broadcast selections

Living in DE, we have both Philadelphia channels as well as Baltimore ones.  Priviously, we have been able to view live the Pittsburgh Steeler games on one or the other most Sundays when the Steeler game was not on the samee network at the same times as the Eagles and the Ravens.  Last Sunday, the game was broadcast on CBS.  The Ravens were also on that network but the Eagles were on FoxS.  The Philadelphia CBS channel had on "paid programming" instead of the Steeler game. UGH!!! Now I see that this coming Sunday (9/17) a similar thing is happening.  WHY???  Direct TV is looking better and better.

If you are willing to pay for DirectTV's Sunday Ticket, go for it. If not, don't blame Comcast for decisions made by the local stations in Baltimore and Philadelphia and NFL telecast rules. The reason the CBS station in Philadelphia did not show a game at 1:00 p.m. was either because they weren't allowed to according to NFL rules, or decided they would not get many viewers for an early game when the hometown Eagles were on the Fox station at 1:00 p.m. So CBS showed the late game to the Philadelphia market. For this coming Sunday's games, here is the map of games: http://506sports.com/nfl.php?yr=2017&wk=2 Notice the statement that the Baltimore Fox station cannot show an early game "due to local team at home on CBS" and the Eagles game is on Fox in Philadelphia.
