- on-demand available for any regular season or playoffs game.
- on-demand season subscriptions available for any team. So if, say, you are a Buffalo Bills fan living in New Mexico, you could watch all their games and not simply hope they play an occasional game well enough for NFL Network to rerun it (edited) later in the week.

- regular season announcers would be replaced by the preseason announcers, who actually talk about the game they are there to announce.

I was meant to finish up some classwork today, but instead wrote 2500 words of fun stuff. I’m not sorry. I’ll attack the classwork tonight.
