NEW YORK, N.Y. - U.S. President Barack Obama's speech Thursday night has forced NFL pre-game shows for the Saints at Packers matchup to be moved to other TV outlets.

The kickoff show originally scheduled to air on NBC at 7 p.m. ET will now be shown on Versus, USA, Syfy and G4, all NBC Universal cable stations in the U.S. It will be joined in progress on NBC when the speech has concluded, with the four other stations resuming regularly scheduled programming.

NFL Network will carry the kickoff show in its entirety.

The president's speech is not expected to conflict with the game, which kicks off at 8:30 p.m. ET in Green Bay.
