NFL Total Access is a television news program on the NFL Network.

The network treats it as the league's "show of record" and bills it as the only year-round show dedicated to the National Football League, despite the ESPN show NFL Live running year round as well.

It is also broadcast on Sky Sports at various times in the UK.

During the 2007 season, another edition of the program previewing the week's action aired Saturday evenings on MyNetworkTV.[1]

NFL Total Access was originally at the 7pm ET slot before being moved down to the 8pm ET time slot on September 2, 2013. On July 14, 2014, "NFL Total Access" moved back to the 7pm ET slot.
