Hou Dats: You may not have to purchase NFL Sunday Ticket this year

WK 1: TB@NO (Fox, DH weekend) others: JAX@NYG, SF@MIN, TN@MIA I think Fox 26 chooses the Saints

WK 2: CLE@NO (Fox, non DH weekend) others: MIN@GB, CAR@ATL, PHI@TB I think Fox chooses MIN@GB (Even though Saints are hosting an AFC team, this will indeed be on Fox.

WK 3: NO@ATL (Fox, DH) No way Fox 26 chooses Saints over NYG@HOU. Sorry Saints fans.

WK 4: NO@NYG America's game of the week, Fox 26 will air NO@NYG over SF@LAC

WK 5: WSH@NO Monday Night, ESPN

WK 6: Bye

WK 7: NO@BAL (Fox, Non DH weekend) Fox 26 will choose this game because the Texans play at noon on CBS, and since Fox doesn't have the DH, they will choose the 3pm game so it doesn't compete with the home team. This is a guaranteed game for Hou Dats on Fox 26.

WK 8: NO@MIN NBC Sunday Night Football

WK 9: LAR@NO (Fox, DH weekend) America's game of the week, no competition.

WK 10: NO@CIN (Fox, non DH weekend) other choices: AZ@KC,
DET@CHI, WSH@TB, ATL@CLE, 12pm; LAC@OAK, 3pm. Not a lot of competition this weekend, and with the Texans having a bye week and Dallas playing on Sunday Night, I think with these options, Fox 26 chooses the Saints.

WK 11: NO@PHI (Fox, DH weekend) Fox 26 has been known to stick it to Cowboys fans, but more often than not, they choose the DAL game, which is DAL@ATL. This game is playing at 12pm and will not be moved for either DAL or NO because both teams are playing on Thanksgiving, just four days later. No Saints game on local TV this weekend, baws.

WK 12: ATL@NO NBC Thanksgiving Night

WK 13: NO@DAL Fox/NFL Network Thursday Night

WK 14: NO@TB (Fox, DH Weekend) The Texans have a home game at noon on CBS, so the Fox window at noon is blacked out.

WK 15: NO@CAR ESPN Monday Night Football

WK 16: PIT@NO CBS America's Game of the Week 3:25pm only other competition BAL@LAC which may get moved to Saturday. Saints fans will be watching on KHOU11

WK 17: CAR@NO (Fox, DH weekend) DAL@NYG is also scheduled for 12pm, but this is a DH weekend for CBS and Fox as its the last weekend of the year. Also, if there is a Sunday Night Game (there wasn't last year), either of these games could get moved to SNF but as it stands, Fox 26 will probably go with DAL@NYG. Also, Texans play at home, so that will close any Fox window at noon. They could get flexed to 3pm or Sunday Night Football as well, so the best thing a Hou Dat can do is count on streaming this one.

I cut the cord over a year ago. I got all of the games last year.

Vive Reddit!

Believe we got almost all Saints games last year. I guess the stars lined up the last couple of years. It was not always the case. I also cut the cord about 5 years ago.

Re: Hou Dats: You may not have to purchase NFL Sunday Ticket this year

The picture quality is technically better with an antenna due to the signal being direct from the tower.

When the new ATSC 3.0 signal is implemented in more markets the quality will be 4K. Looking like 2020 before it really takes off. New TV's should start featuring the ATSC 3.0 feature soon. I just find it funny that free TV picture quality is better than paid TV and will always be better.

The games I can't get, I listen to Sirius. I bought a lifetime subscription about 13 years ago which they do not offer anymore. It was a gamble, they almost went out of business but I paid $400. That's about $30 a year instead of over $200 a year and it keeps going down every year. One of the best purchases I ever made.

Beast,

+1 XM/Sirius is good stuff. I did the 30 day free trial a while back. After that, they harassed the hell out of me so I just went ahead and took advantage of a 6 month subscription deal @ $60 bucks.

I feel sorry for you poor folks out in Houston. But not too much..... You do live in the great state of Texas! I live in lower Alabama but I still get all the games. Thank God the Gulf Coast loves New Orleans football!

I love my Sunday Ticket and will remain a user. I not only get to watch EVERY Saints game, but I also get to watch many others every Sunday.

Re: Hou Dats: You may not have to purchase NFL Sunday Ticket this year

Only thing that is annoying is the delay with Sirius or even radio. And I can never remember which one is faster. I believe Sirius has a longer delay than TV but Radio is the fastest signal? I forget every season.
