NBC details plans for Packers-Saints pregame coverage Sept. 7, 2011 11:56 a.m. |(96) Comments Four different NBC Universal cable channels - Versus, USA, Syfy, and G4 - as well as the NFL Network will provide coverage of the Green Bay Packers-New Orleans Saints pregame show at 6 p.m. Thursday. The pregame coverage was scheduled to be on NBC but is now being pre-empted due to President Barack Obama's speech to Congress. Obama's speech is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. NBC will join NFL Kickoff 2011 at Lambeau Field in progress once its coverage of Obama's speech is over. At that point, Versus, USA, Syfy and G4 will resume their coverage. The NFL Network will carry the pregame coverage in its entirety. Obama's speech is not expected to conflict in any way with the game, scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. from Lambeau Field. Locally, WTMJ-TV (Channel 4) will carry NBC's pregame coverage of the Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints at 6 p.m. instead of airing Obama's speech. The station will air NBC's coverage of the speech on its digital Channel 4.2, and on Channel 999 on Time Warner Cable. Earlier Thursday, "Today" show personalities Matt Lauer and Al Roker will be in Green Bay to report on the festivities.
