We just moved to the area from Maryland and my husband is a dire
Redskins fan but we are not getting many of their games.

Comporium (the cable company we are using now) says that do not have any packages.

How can we get their games without spending a million dollars.

Is there another cable company that has this package?

Help!!!
He is going through withdrawl (lol)

DirecTV has an exclusive NFL package that is scheduled to end in 2010. DirecTV has had an exclusive deal since 1994. I believe they pay $700 million annually for the deal.

I switched to DirecTV just for the NFL package. I've lived in two states using DirecTV and like them way better than the cable companies I'd used in the past.

Unfortunately, Direct TV has exclusive rights to the NFL package. If you're like many people and are unable to get Direct TV, give this site a try:

www. myp2p. com
(obviously without the spaces between the periods though. Whenever I tried to type the entire address out, it displayed a lot of irrelevant additional information)

I frequent a few different sports blogs and each one recommended this site. If you download the SOPcast software on the left side of the page, you will be able to watch the games online. I believe it's similar to the technology employed in the Sling Box. It doesn't work 100% of the time, but it is better than nothing. I was very skeptical about it until I tried it for the first time and it worked great. It's worth giving a shot if you have no other way to watch the game.
