The NFL Network have announced they will nationally broadcast 14 live preseason games in 2019, with the Pittsburgh Steelers set to be involved in two of them.
The first game will be their preseason opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Heinz Field on Friday, August 9, closely followed a week later by their home matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday, August 17.
For those living in the Pittsburgh area, the games will be blacked out locally on the NFL Network, aired instead in the home market on KDKA-TV. And with the Steelers trip to face the Tennessee Titans set to be nationally broadcast by NBC on Sunday, August 25, fans living outside the Steel City should have an opportunity to catch more live action than usual this year.
For members of Steeler Nation living overseas, each preseason game will be available to watch live as they happen with a subscription to NFL Game Pass.
The final game of the preseason against the Carolina Panthers on Thursday, August 29 will be aired as a replay on the NFL Network on Friday, August 30 at 5.30 a.m ET, an early start for any diehards who need to see it at the first opportunity.
