Who says you need cable to watch tons of football, anyway?

That didn't last long. On the heels of Dish Network deal with the NFL expiring, the company has announced that Sling TV (owned by Dish, of course) will have the NFL Network and NFL RedZone available for the 2016 season. Neither the streaming service or the NFL have said anything about pricing yet, but those details will shore up soon. It's part of a bigger deal with Dish, as well, with the aforementioned channels coming back to Dish's satellite customers as well.

What's in store for pigskin fanatics? All 65 preseason games, training camp coverage, exclusive Thursday night games, episodes of NFL GameDay Morning, A Football Life, Good Morning Football broadcast live daily and Timeline, according to the league. Don't be confused: the last one definitely isn't the film adaptation of Michael Crichton's worst book -- it's a show about big moments in NFL history.
