Cox to show Saturday's Saints game

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) – Cox Communications announced Friday that the Saturday night game on NFL Network between the New Orleans Saints and Dallas Cowboys at 7:00 PM will be televised on Cox Channel 20 as part of a free preview of NFL Network for all Cox video subscribers in the Baton Rouge market. The move was announced by Cox Communications President & COO Pat Esser for both the Baton Rouge and Acadiana markets.

"While normally this game would be available on NFL Network as part of our Sports and Information Tier, we believed it was important to try to get access for all of our customers," said Jacqui Vines, senior vice president and general manager for Cox Louisiana. "This is an extraordinary time for the Saints and this state. We are excited to be able to provide this service to all video customers in the seven parish Baton Rouge region. I couldn't thank our Cox corporate leaders enough for this free preview of the great NFL Network content."

The free preview of NFL Network on Cox channel 20 will be available from noon Saturday, Dec. 19 through 1 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 21 in Cox service areas in all or parts of Ascension, East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Iberville, Livingston, St. James, and West Baton Rouge. Because channel 20 is typically not part of the Cox line-up, customers are encouraged to tune into the channel directly. They may need to conduct a channel scan to reset their television on Saturday to secure the signal.

While NFL Network on Cox channel 20 will be available on Basic Cable to all customers in Baton Rouge, Acadiana customers must subscribe to the Digital Sports & Information tier on channel 241 for access. To receive the game in high-definition, customers must have an HD television and HD receiver to access the NFL Network HD channel 771. The Baton Rouge area service centers will conduct normal business hours. The Lafayette service center, located at 1906 Eraste Landry Rd, will be open Saturday from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Customers can also call (337) 232-6323 in Acadiana to secure the NFL Network.

Digital customers in all Cox markets can preview pre-game and post-game coverage, as well as hundreds of hours of original programming, on the NFL Network On Demand, available on Cox channel 1.
