Most sports fans know that you can’t get everything that you want and need from the NHL or the NFL from over-the air broadcasts. True fans know that your basic cable package, even with ESPN, isn’t going to cut it, either. Real NFL and NHL fans know that, to get the best action of the season, they need to turn to the NFL and the NHL Network. For that matter, true fans know that just having access to the NFL and NHL Network is good, but having them both in High Definition is better by far.
In terms of football, the NFL Network is the best place for true football fans to follow the football season, starting with the more than 50 pre season games that are aired every year. On top of the preseason games, the NFL Network provides many regular season games in mind-blowing HD. True NFL fans can even watch the NFL draft, as well as in-depth coverage of the scouting process. On top of all of the current season goodness, the NFL network also features replays of classic match-ups, as well as replays of previous Superbowls.
Similarly, for the true NHL fan, there is no better place to catch all of the best hockey action of the season. The NHL Network, like the NFL Network, gives fans the chance to watch many exclusive hockey games, as well as classic games. When combined with the NHL Center Ice package, it is even more of a true fan’s powerhouse, providing as many as 40 games each and every week during the regular season, as well as select games from the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The NHL and NFL Network are the only places that die-hard, tried and true fans can go to get coverage of their sport. They can tune in 24 hours a day and seven days a week, in High Definition TV. The bad news for true fans is that many cable companies just don’t carry the NFL network. I
n fact, most of the cable companies out there do not carry the NFL Network. For some of the cable companies that do offer the NFL Network, many don’t offer the NFL Network in HD. The NFL Network in high definition is available on both DIRECTV Satellite television and the Dish Network. The NHL Network in high definition and standard definition is currently only available on DIRECTV.
