Didn't know that... I got it back in 05-11... I was always mad they didn't air pre season and also all the coaches (or teams') pre and post game shows/news conferences. They had a few coaches pre game shows but nothing post game. Anyways, NFLN does air all the pre season games but they are usually in the middle of the night. I had to move so no more DTV. It was affordable when my brother and I split the bill including ticket. I watched on streams last year and then got Game rewind for 40.00.. re-watched all the games. it was well worth it. You can watch all the games from 2009, 10, 11 and 12 including playoffs, sb and pro bowl (except 2012 playoffs). They have pre-season games live for 20.00 but that's too much for 4 games. Also, they have the coaches tape for all plays for an extra 30 (so 70 instead of the 40) and you can watch the normal version and the coaches tape which is the 1st time the nfl is releasing it. They did it for key plays in the past years.... basically you can watch the entire field from overhead. Helps break down plays better but you still don't know what was called so you can't be 100% accurate. If you really want to save new this year they have for 35.00 (5.00 cheaper) you can pick 1 team's games to watch from 09-12.
Anyways, it's a pretty cheap alternate to paying 300 for ST. Just have to wait until the games are over for the day to watch them. I know some of you work Sundays as well... that would be a great option. Just have to stay away from the internet and scores or try to catch a live stream and it serves as a good backup in case you miss any plays or to rewatch the games after they are over which I did last year.
