Fall Experimental Football League (FXFL) adds ESPN3 as broadcast partner

Unless you had Dish Network, DirecTV, or AT&T U-Verse, you might have wondered how you could watch the FXFL games beginning next week. In news announced today, all FXFL games will be streamed live on ESPN3. The FXFL joins the Arena Football League (outside of CBSSN games) and the Canadian Football League with all their games being streamed by the network.

Here's the release.
"The new FXFL developmental league has signed a deal with ESPN to have its games broadcast online and through the ESPN app.
The league begins play with four teams next Wednesday when Boston plays at Omaha. Commissioner Brian Woods calls having ESPN involved with its Game of the Week broadcasts "very exciting and important."
Another team is located in Brooklyn, and the fourth, called the Blacktips, will play all road games in 2014.
Woods already lined up regional television platforms for the prime-time games, most of which will be played on Wednesdays, but some on Fridays. Woods says that the league can reach more than 99 million homes through the affiliation with ESPN.
The Fall Experimental Football League is designed as a home for players who didn't make it into the NFL, but are seeking another shot. Rosters will have less than 40 players on game days."

In case you missed it last week, here's the full schedule. And since the Blacktips couldn't find a home arena, they have removed Florida from their name.
