Does anyone know the weeks where Fox plans double headers for the NFL? Is there a way to know which games will be shown in which markets?


I'm a Comcast sub in Central NJ (40-50 miles from Giants stadium) where I get access to the major networks out of NY and Philly.


This is my first NFL season (important reason for buying a HDTV) with HD but unfortunately, I just came to the realization that I will not have access to the NY Giants games in HD because I only get the Philly networks (read as Eagles games)in HD while I have SD for both Philly and NY.


I may have to, dare I say it, think about satellite for NFL if I want to see Giants games in HD.


The only thing that could save me is that there are only only 3 weeks where the Giants and Eagles play in the same time slot so if Fox is broadcasting a double header I may be able to get the Giants game as the second (or first) game of the doubleheader. Presumably, when the Eagles are on Sunday night or Monday, I will get the Giants game as the Fox NFC game.


The thought of watching SD Giants games on my new TV is absolutely sickening given that a major reason for the TV purchase was so I can watch the Giants in HD.

Not to state the obvious, but have you considered putting up an antenna? You're only about 45 miles from the NYC Fox station, and Antennaweb is predicting you could get the signal with a good outdoor UHF antenna. Then you'd get all the Giants games in HD, whether there was an Eagles game or not, unless the games were blacked out.

Giants & Jets season tickets are passed on to family members. They are in people's wills, etc. Plus the long waiting lists will ensure that won't happen in NY.

Maybe the Raiders will pick-up TO and with Moss already onboard the Raider fans that love those sort of players will fill the stadium... :p

I'm not worried about blackouts. My ten years on the waiting list for season tickets are a good indication that there will MANY years before a game is blacked out.


Regarding the antenna, my TV does not have a tuner so I would have to look into get a combination tuner and antenna. Additionally, I'm not too excited about the idea of climbing my home to mount an antenna and wiring it to my TV somehow. I'm clumsy and not very mechanically inclined so I have little doubt that the job would look a bit "ghetto", for lack of a better word.


I should have stated in my original post that I was not looking to get into the antenna issue because of the additional equipment and mounting issues.

I live in Ocean County and am the opposite of you. I get all NY HD stations, and Philly SD stations. The Giants game vs Cleveland was on last night in HD. What county are you in?

I'm in Mercer Co. As confirmed by Comcast, Ocean and Monmouth both get NY HD while Mercer gets Philly HD and NY and Philly SD. Pretty annoying since I'm betting that Ocean/Monmouth towns in some instances are closer to Philly than Mercer towns.


When I moved here a year ago and went to Home Depot the first day, I noticed that they sold an Eagles flag. I immediately thought...rut roh...I'm in Eagles country. Let's just say when I go to the supermarket on Sunday while wearing my Strahan jersey, I'm not a real popular guy.

Early part of FOX HD regular season schedule is at http://www.hdsportsguide.com/nfl.php 6 a day again, but I am happy that it looks like a great chance that most if not all of the games shown in my area will be HD.

How quickly things change though. They used to say the Redskins season tickets were a waiting list measured in decades. Now people are saying they're getting called after just a year. People have a hard time giving them away when they can't make it. I expect Redskins blackouts in 5 years.

When I lived in Maryland, I was willing to spend almost any amount of money to get my Eagles games. This was before HD came along and made things even more interesting. You don't need a very big antenna to get the Giants games in HD, a handyman could set it up for you without any trouble (these aren't technical items - anyone with a brain can wire one) or you could hire a professional installer, and used STBs are available on eBay for under $100. After one year, you'd probably break even on DirecTV's HD Sunday Ticket package ($319 for a new subscriber after the $99 HD fee and the $219 ST base price) and then you'd be getting Giants games forever after that for free.


If you subscribe to DirecTV, would you get the NY locals? If you did, then you could get the NYC "big 4" in HD and you'd only have to pay for the equipment and the monthly fees. All told, the antenna would probably save you a bundle, and you still have to buy equipment and get something installed on your roof...
