    2020 NFL Season: With and Without SundayTicket
    Here is this year's comparison. Erosion of Sunday Ticket continues.

    If the plan to have 4 overseas games played this year had not been changed because of the Wuhan Virus, this years' percentage would be four more, or 48% of games available for free.

    HERE'S THE EXCEL

    Great breakdown of everything. We've reached the point where NFLST has become a home for either diehard fans of the league in general, or for those that have to watch their favorite team each week. If you're of the latter and familiar with how your local markets prioritize what teams they'd prefer to offer, you can really breakdown whether it's a worthwhile investment for you.

    I'm speaking in generalities, but it feels like more games overall have been slotted to the late window to have more 4-5 game weeks, instead of so many weeks in previous season where the late window would only feature 2-3 games. I could be inaccurate in that assessment.

    Well, here are the stats for 2018, 2019 and 2020. And remember that Week 17/2020 will have probably 4 or 5 games moved from early to late Sunday.

    I provided the details because any kind of analysis seemed to cover over any concerns.

    Thanks for your extra efforts to provide this! I was obviously way off in my thinking. Well let's hope that some of those 2-game late windows towards the end of the season are some real exciting contests!

    Imagine how diluted ST would become if there is no college football this year - or even if it's pushed back to a January start.

    The networks and streamers would start a Royal Rumble to get Saturday NFL games.
