Football doesn’t necessarily have the distinction of being called the primary American hobby, but it surely should and with good reason. The game play is challenging, it is a way to get family together, improve team spirit in high schools, Colleges, Universities and Communities cheering for a special squad sets their individual campuses and neighborhoods ablaze with team decorations, tail gating parties and gatherings. Following your favorite squad by attending every game can get pricey. With plane tickets for out of state games, plus the cost of season tickets if the team goes all the way to the finals will cause you to tally a very hefty fan tab (and we haven’t even gotten to the price of memorabilia). It is also extremely hard to obtain tickets to major football events such as the Super Bowl. Following a team or just catching up with local and out of state games gets much simpler and a whole lot cheaper when you can watch football on TV.

Football TV schedules

The first thing you will need to know are the local schedules for games have an interest in. For professional games, NFL.com holds the most extensive listing of all Pre, Regular and Post season games as well as yearly matchups. NFL.com lists the shows by date time and channel so that you will never miss a game.

A little well known resource that is growing in popularity is the506.com. It provides maps that give the game locations and football TV schedules for the NFL season for FOX and CBS. It was designed by a fan who gets the data from titantv.com, tv.yahoo.com and zap2it.com and foxsports.com. The maps are revised on Wednesday night or Thursday afternoon for that weekend’s games. With revisions and corrections on Friday if required.

ESPN is of course an all in one resource for all things football related. The only problem with checking out their website is that they will only list the schedules for their own network. Their site handily supplies game results, game highlights, articles and bios on stars and up and comers as well as the all important schedules. There are fun features such as countdown clocks to the NFL draft and contests and special sections that let fans win tickets to various games.

Other than ESPN, College football teams get a little harder to watch on TV, particularly if you are in a different state from your home team and can t get regular updates from local radio and stations and papers. Games from smaller schools may be broadcast on local college stations while fans of popular universities such as Louisiana State, Penn State, and Ohio State can keep abreast games on major network stations such as ESPN, COX and CBSC. Game schedules can be found on the each special teams website, usually listed by Time, Network and the in some instances the play back schedule in case you miss the live broadcast. ABC, NBC, TBS and FOX will also broadcast college games; their schedules are also available on their respective websites.
