Good point.

I just perused a website that reviewed last year's NFL Game Time service. It states that for the 2016 season it cost $99 and Sunday morning and afternoon games (9:30am ET, 1pm ET & 4pm ET) were available at the conclusion of all Sunday 4pm ET games.

So you are correct.

The subscriber has to wait, then, for Sunday night or Monday morning to see the 9:30AM game. To be sure, most subscribers will know the outcome already, but, for the purposes of saving time at least, the replay broadcast is condensed for the actual plays only, meaning about 30 minutes ... better than laboring through 3+ hours.


The new subscription season starts in July (probably around July 31st, just before pre-season starts). Maybe this year there is a chance that NFL Game Time will offer the 9:30AM game at 1PM, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Good Luck!

Espn won't look at the reasons it is a financial sinking ship and the layoff just threw a bandaid on a dissected carotid artery. Their political posturing turned me off and thusly I turned ESPN off.

Espn is not the only one slashing costs----now comes word the Sport Illustrated is laying off writers, including the very fine writer and broadcaster Seth Davis.
Espn did over commit and reach on the costs of their broadcast deals.
I think the major sports are going to face some resistance in the next round of tv contracts----the balloon on overpaying for sports tv rights has finally come into play.
