TechRadars MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL: NFL Network airs Thursday Night Football at 10pm ET with special pre-game show, pregame show starts at 7:30pm ET on NFL Network!
Posted September 20, 2018 11:02:24 It’s Sunday Night Football, folks.
The NFL Network is bringing its best show ever to Thursday Night, featuring some of the most exciting football coverage in the country.
The NFL is playing on Thursday nights as the new Monday Night Football on CBS and the NBCUniversal Network, the first of which will air at 8:00pm ET.
You won’t need a TV tuner or a cable subscription to see it, though, as the network’s schedule features every single game.NFL.com/Thursday Night Football is available in full for those who are on cable or satellite TV.
NFL Network will be simulcasting at least one game each week.
The network is also bringing back the Thursday Night Countdown show from 2011, which will take over the same time slot.
It’ll be interesting to see how the network plays with pre-and post-game shows, especially since most of the pre- and post-games are set to play in the evening.
While there will be plenty of live pre-games and post game shows to go around, it’s likely that the majority of NFL Network’s football coverage will be pre-recorded.
This means that you won’t get to see the games, but you can still watch them when they happen.
NFL Network has done an excellent job of making this work so far.
There’s been a lot of talk about the NFL Network not having a primetime schedule in the past.
But that’s changing as we move closer to the 2018 season, as we’ll see the network start rolling out games in the morning.
As for the pregame shows and the pre game show itself, the network will feature some of their most exciting games.
After the Eagles and Cowboys game, the NFL will air an episode of NFL Countdown, with analysts Craig Loston, John Clayton, and Tom Luginbill, as well as former Eagles and Bears QB Matt Cassel.
A pregame with the Bills, Chargers, and Patriots will air in the afternoon, and there will also be pregame segments on the Jets, Bears, Colts, and Titans.
I think it’s safe to say that you’re going to see a lot more pregame stuff from NFL Network this year, as they’ve been getting better at producing pre-season shows for years now.
The NFL Network will also debut its first show from this year’s College Football Playoff on Thursday Night.
The game between Alabama and Florida will be televised live at 8pm ET, and you’ll be able to catch the first half of the game on NFL Mobile.
The second half of it will be available to stream on NFL GamePass.
NFL Mobile is also the home for the NFL’s first-ever preseason game, which features Notre Dame vs. Washington.
If you haven’t been following all of the college football action, you can find all of it here.
With this new schedule, we should see some really great games.
If not, the next step is to see if there are any other sports that can help fill the gap between the NFL and other sports.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
