    Instead of 12 free Saturday games on 12/24, it should be 4 (CBS 1, FOX 2, NFLN 1). So the total should be 5 free saturday games.

    Attached is the NFL PreSeason Schedule now that the day of week and kickoff times have been finalized. This is in accordance with a new Press Release from the NFL on 6/2/2016.

    Note the filenames below and download the correct schedule for your timezone.

    The Schedule contains links to 'Team OTA Stations'. Those links are valid, but at this time those listings of OTA stations contracting with each team for the PreSeason broadcasts have not yet been assembled.

    Does this mean there is a free Sunday Ticket preview on Christmas Eve? I'm confused by this.

    I personally like seeing the games spread out more instead of bundled on 2 time slots Sunday afternoon.
    I've always thought ST wasn't money well spent unless the team you watched was out of market. Redzone is more valuable but Direct wants an extra $100+ on top of base ST price which is ridiculous and why many fantasy players I know migrated to Dish for RZ but bailing in droves.

    This year streaming RZ on PlayStation Vue may be way to go but still waiting to see if its going to be standalone or package required which could be deal killer.

    Any word yet on the NFL Network preseason replay schedule? I assume it will show all preseason games on delayed replay as it has done in previous years.

    Thanks to the dcowboy7 info, the schedules have been updated to include the newly announced 16 live games that NFLNET will be providing. A total of 24 live games will now be nationally broadcast.

    A notation has also been added referencing the the NFLNET Re-Air tape-delayed broadcast schedule for all non-national games.

    Be careful with the NFLNET schedule, there are several errors in game start times and two cases where they have the home/visitor teams reversed. The NFL.com schedule is correct.

    The links for the "Team OTA Stations" are now active for all the Week #1 games. The links for Weeks 2, 3 and 4 and still in work at this time.

    If you will, please say a word of the thanks to the folks at 506sports.com for the tremendous amount of research and caring that goes into this effort each year.

    It is NOT standalone. Subscribing to one of the top two tiers is required. Cost is $40 for the season, one non-refundable payment for the season. $40 is on top of what you would be paying for Core or Elite. No go for me.
