I recently ordered the NFL Network so I'd have plenty of time getting accustomed to entering channel 180 on my Comcast network before Thanksgiving... as I hope you know, the NFL Network begins their 8-game live package on Thanksgiving and continues it for four weeks... Thurs/Sat nights for four weeks -- can't wait!
However, one nice surprise I knew nothing about was NFL RePlay. Basically, the network shows four shortened (90 minutes) games from Sunday each Tuesday and Wednesday night. I just saw the Pats/Bills... it's very cool. In addition to cutting out the timeouts and other non-action times, each game sprinkles in some press conference footage, and some NFL Films-like slow-mo, sideline footage, etc... very cool combination. Maybe next year they'll let me pick the games I'd like to have in RePlay.
