2014 NFL Draft tv schedule: How are you watching around the world?

New, comments

The 2014 NFL Draft is televised across the globe. We look at some television and online options for those in the US and around the world.

The 2014 NFL Draft is a little over 24 hours away, which means it is time to figure out watch plans, if you have not already. In the United States, ESPN and NFL Network split their coverage with the first round kicking off Thursday at 5 p.m. PT. The second round kicks off day 2 at 4 p.m. PT, and the the fourth round kicks off day 3 at 9 a.m. PT. More importantly, for those that won't be in front of a TV, NFL.com/Live will provide a live online stream of the draft. And it's free and legal! Huzzah!

I generally prefer NFL Network's coverage of the draft, although occasionally ESPN can do some good things with it. I much prefer Rich Eisen as host over Chris Berman. I prefer Mike Mayock over Mel Kiper and Todd McShay, although Kiper can provide some great insight on some random no-names as we get into day three. Both networks will have their share of quality guys with some stinkers mixed in. Speaking of which, check out Richard Deitsch's mega preview of the television coverage.

The next question is how people will be watching if they are outside the ESPN/NFL Network bubble. I've done some digging, but have not found many of the international options. I do know that the United Kingdom (and probably some other countries) will be able to watch on Sky Sports 1. In Canada, TSN2 will be providing your coverage.

If you are in another country and know what channel the Draft will air, please post in the comments, and I'll add it up here. I'd like to make this as comprehensive as possible, and I know we have people from all over the globe in here.

USA: NFL Network/ESPN/ESPN2
UK: Sky Sports 1
Canada: TSN 2
