Saints game airing on Cox

Cox Cable giving BR fans an NFL Network preview

Friday, December 18, 2009 - 5:21pm

BATON ROUGE(AP) Good news for Saints fans in Baton Rouge: They don't need to subscribe to the NFL Network to watch Saturday's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Cox Communications announced Friday that its customers in the
Baton Rouge market will be able to watch the game on Channel 20 as
part of a free preview of the NFL Network, which is airing the
game.

The company's move came after the NFL rejected requests to have
the game shown over-the-air in the Baton Rouge area, which is
considered a secondary market for the team.

The free preview will last from Saturday at noon through 1 a.m.
Tuesday. The offer applies to Cox customers in all or parts of
Ascension, East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Iberville, Livingston,
St. James and West Baton Rouge parishes.
