NFL Total Access to telecast from Palm Beach March 29-31

NEW YORK (March 25, 2004) -- One of the main goals of NFL Network is to bring fans closer to all facets of the NFL. The mission breaks more new ground next week by taking viewers for an unprecedented look inside the 2004 NFL Annual Meeting in Palm Beach, Fla.

Analysis, opinions, features and more!
Beginning Monday, March 29, NFL Network's signature show, NFL Total Access shutters the studio in Los Angeles, as host Rich Eisen and crew set up on-site in Palm Beach to gain access to NFL owners, head coaches, team presidents and league executives.

Not only will the guests on NFLTA be a "Who's Who" of the NFL all week, but fans will go inside the actual meetings, including footage of Commissioner Paul Tagliabue delivering his annual report on the state of the league, discussions on renewing the instant replay system currently in effect and the vote on whether to continue instant replay.

Additionally, on Monday, March 29 at approximately 1 p.m. ET, NFL Network will televise the Commissioner's press conference live, where it is expected the 2004 Kickoff Weekend key game matchups will be announced.

NFL Total Access will televise the following specials from the league meetings:

Monday, March 29 -- 8 p.m. ET/PT
Tuesday, March 30 -- 8 p.m. ET/PT
Wednesday, March 31 -- 8 p.m. ET/PT

With the league meeting coverage, NFL Network continues its impressive offseason coverage, from inside the NFL Scouting Combine for the first time, to access at College Pro Days, and the football show of record -- NFL Total Access -- providing daily insight from team headquarters around the league during the free-agent frenzy.

Following the NFL meetings in Palm Beach, NFL Network will debut a host of new programming. Beginning Saturday, April 3, live games will be televised for the first time on NFL Network with the debut on 2004 NFL Europe League action. NFL Network will air NFLEL games Saturday and Sunday nights at 8 p.m. ET for 10 consecutive weeks. In addition, NFL Network will be the key source of 2004 NFL Draft coverage with over 30 hours
But will VOOM broadcast NFL games during the regular season in HD on the NFL Network? Or does DirecTV have exclusive rights to live NFL game broadcasting?

Even the NFL Network does not have the rights to those games since the NFL sold them all to DirectTv. So you won't see LIVE HD Games on NFL NET.

So who shows live HD NFL games (non OTA I mean). Only DirecTV? If so... ouch.

ESPN Sunday night games. Keep your fingers crossed that the Voom sales guy was correct last week and Voom will have ESPN in the next 3 months.

what is the deal with vooms version of espn hd? It doesn't seem to be in 1080i hd!?

ESPN HD is not 24/7. They only transmit HD a few events. Today they will have the NHL game and a baseball game in HD. Look at the Daily VOOM HD Listing thread stuck on this forum.
