No advantage to the NFLST for pre-season, only during the regular season until playoffs start.

I guess the $350.00 I spent for the NFL ST and SuperFan isnt enough to get the pre-season games as well...

If you can't find a Titans fan club watching it, you could also look for a opponent's who might be watching it.

I know this has nothing to do with Directv but you can still (usually) see the preseason games live if you have a big dish that can pull in the station. I know the local chapter of my Browns Backers has found a sports bar with a big dish and is showing all the Browns games live. You might try finding a Titans fan club and see if they have made similar arrangements. Sports bars are usually more than willing to accomodate fan clubs on what would otherwise be a slow night.
Is there such a thing as a Titans fan club?

If you have the SportsPak, will the pre-season games NOT in your local RSN be blacked out?
Yes. He should be able to watch the replay on NFL Network but even the replays on the RSN will be blacked out.

Nope, just like any other big sports on the RSN's. The RSN sports pack is always a joke, always blacked out.
Ain't that the truth. You pay 12 bucks a month and the only thing you gain is the ability to watch what's on your local RSN at a different time, a bunch of infomercials, maybe a couple local pre-game shows or team reports, or the ass end of a game that may run over the time allotted. The leagues are taking it too far with the blackout thing. They are basically telling you which team you will watch ONLY because of where you live. I guess that's why DirecTV will give you a $10 per month credit on the Sports Pack for a 6-month period. I tell ya...that is the only reason I am signed up for it. The most useful channels are ESPN U, CSTV, Outdoor Channel, Fox Soccer Channel, and NBA TV.

It will be LIVE on channel 212, but not broadcast in HD.

Unless they've changed something since last year you will only get the tape delay games on NFL Network, just like the rest of the world who has NFL Network and does not subscribe to Sunday Ticket. .
...another reason I have Sirius satelite radio as back-up to my ST.
