Get the sky sports subscription. They show yankee football.

But be warned - it's shown live - ie at around midnight here.

There's also the odd game on channel fiove (which is free) but there doesn't seem to be any logic to the scheduling.

Just to confuse matters ITV show the superbowl (another free to air channel)

All the thoughts about subscribing to Sky Sports are correct, but be warned you may only get to see the Bills play once ot twice during a seasons coverage - and thats despite Sky's main presenter on Amercian Football, Kevin Cadle, being a huge Bills fan.

Sadly its not like the NFL network in the States, and you can't pick and choose which teams games you see, but Sky do cover up to four - sometimes five- games on a regular Sunday so you may be lucky. Game coverage starts at 6pm and runs through until about 2/3am depending on what games they cover.

Make sure you go, if you can, for getting Sky via Satellite rather than cable as this gives you more options to see more games.

Go Bills!

Wait until the schedule comes out and then look at www.nasn.com

Also, if you have NFL Sunday Ticket subscription, you can subscribe to NFL SuperCast on line and watch any and all Sunday early/afternoon games on your computer, provided you have high speed internet access.

SkySports shows the national early/afternoon games only. They may also show Thur/Mon games as well. Not sure.
