NFL putting blacked-out games free online
The National Football League said Thursday it will show blacked-out games free online in the affected markets on a delayed basis.
The games will be found on NFL.com beginning at midnight on the day of the game and remain available for 72 hours, the league said on its Web site. ESPN Monday Night Football telecasts are not included.
We understand that the economy is limiting some families and corporations from buying as many game tickets as they had previously,NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said.
These free re-broadcasts on NFL.com will allow our fans that can't get to a blacked-out game an opportunity to see the entire game.
