Until there is 'The Patriots' channel, you would only get to see Pats games if you live in the Boston broadcast area, usually on the CBS station or if they had a game scheduled for thur night on NFL, Sun night on NBC or Mon night on ESPN
I tried RedZone "Once", that bouncing back and forth gave me a headache.
Doesn't seem such a big deal to have the NFL Games, your competitor can do it, why not you.
Directv has an Exclusive deal for the Sunday Ticket that they pay $1.5B per year for. While they have that exclusive contract, no other provider can offer it. Now thanks to consumer laws, there are very specific exceptions. They still have 6 years remaining on their contract, with a first re-up clause.
