Anyone know an easy, no hassle way of obtaining footage aired by various networks. I'm specifically looking for game tape from some sporting events. Can one just contact the network and pay a reasonable price for them to send a video/DVD? Anyone have experience doing this?

holy shit... that's insane.... Wish I just had a damn Tivo for the past few years and recorded what I wanted. What exactly is the procedure for obtaining certain things? Do most networks have department that handles this sort of thing or is it uncommon?

I'm afraid you're going to be shocked at the cost.

NFL games are owned by the NFL, and the other sports are handled the same. It will also depend on your use of the footage.

If the price is something you are unwilling to pay, there are place and programs on the internet with which you can download stuff for free. Although what you want may or may not be available, it just depends if there was someone out there that thought it was worth ripping and putting online.
