NFL Network: Thursday Game Question

Hoping someone can answer this. Beginning Thanksgiving, the NFL Network will begin showing Primetime matchups on Thursday night.

There are individuals out there (myself included) who don't get this channel on Basic or even Digital Cable. At present, we don't have the option accept to switch to a dish.

Will a game being broadcast on NFL network also be broadcast on local TV for those in the primary market for either team?

Example, Denver plays Kansas City in KC Thanksgiving night. Will this game also be broadcast on local tv for the benefit of those fans in the KC and Denver markets?

If you have NFL-HD, yes.

The games will indeed be broadcast on broadcast TV in the local markets.

From: http://www.nfl.com/nflnetwork/story/9363505

By NFL policy, NFL Network games will also be carried on free, over-the-air television in the city of the visiting team and in the city where the game is played if it is sold out 72 hours in advance of kickoff.

But the game will not necessarily be broadcase on the home team's secondary market. For example, the Ravens at Bengals game on 11/30 is not being offered to the Dayton market... unless things change, folks there without NFLN will not be able to see the game even though it's already sold out.

And supposedly, DirecTV will air these on channel 95 in HD since they don't carry NFL-HD.

Really? That would be good news.
