With the first preseason game set for this week, you might already be making plans to watch the game. You’ve probably already heard that the preseason games have moved in Boston from WCVB channel 5 to WBZ-TV channel 4. What if you live in another state and don’t get WBZ-TV?

Here is the list of TV affiliates for the preseason games around New England:

-Massachusetts-
Boston, Mass.  …………………………WBZ-TV Channel 4 (Flagship)
Springfield, Mass. …………………… WWLP-TV Channel 22

Theses are for the Patriots’ games on Aug. 13, Aug. 20 and Sept. 3. All games are shown live. The other preseason game on August 28 against the Redskins is a nationally televised game on CBS.

The familiar team of Don Criqui and Randy Cross will call the games on the Patriots Preseason TV Network, with WBZ-TV’s Steve Burton serving as the sideline reporter.

Comments

  1. Steve Burton? WOW

  2. Nothing in Nevada, hey?

  3. Bruce, NV says:

    It SEEMS as if it’ll be on NFL Network in HD at 11 Eastern, so 8 out here. Not bad, I’ll just avoid the bsmw message board that day.

  4. How do you watch this from NYC?

  5. The game was not shown on channel 22 here in Pittsfield MA—any idea why and if the others will be?

      Hi Teresa, I just checked with someone at the Patriots, who in turn, checked with the VP of the station, and here was the answer:

      A Berkshire county cable company tries to protect the NBC stations in Pittsfield and Albany from running the same programming…unfortunately that cable company did not get the memo that it was a Patriots game, not NBC programming, and blacked the game out. It had been addressed prior to the game, it was addressed after the mix up, and is being addressed this week to insure it does not happen Thursday. Hope this helps

      So this week’s game should be all set.

  6. It states that WVII-channel 7 is supposed to be airing the game but instead it says that they wont be airing it due to another channel airing it…yet there is no other channel. Quite upset.
