Its a crappy service but its free. some feeds are pretty good, some are NOT.. tons of advertising that you have to close, pop ups but once you get your feed settled, you can watch a game.. FREE.

one hint, when you are closing a ad (that covers up your video feed) look for the SMALL blue x.. also note that the x will MOVE on you the first time you hover your mouse over it.. it can be very frustrating but there are typically several feeds for each NFL game and you likely will find a half way decent one to watch.
sounds like firstrowsports but any row is a good row when you're otherwise standing outside the fence

It's the same thing: an illegal stream. You're not likely to go to jail, or even get fined, but it's still illegal. And sometimes the streams blow if you don't like a popular team (though that's not an issue here).

If that isn't possible, but you know of a friend who lives in an apartment complex that won't allow DirecTV, you could use their address when signing up for it. I honestly think it's absurd to allow DirecTV to monopolize the Sunday Ticket. I think the amount of subscriptions would at least double if everyone was allowed to sign up without having to be a DirecTV customer. Honestly, on average, most people never pay the full price for it when they are DTV customers. They either get it free the first year and then negotiate the price down the following year.
I assume they have a deal where directv gets a ton of money by forcing so many customers into 2 year contracts at ridiculous rates and the NFL gets a ton of money from directv as some sort of regular payment. If the NFL could make more money by doing everything online, they would.

The exclusivity deal is worth $1.5 billion a year (that's Billion with a B). I don't blame DirecTV for going after something so valuable though. I blame the NFL for offering such a deal.

It's good business for the NFL, DirecTV pays them billions for access to games they are already televising locally and all the Comcast customers miss out on their teams' games every week. If all those Comcast customers got to watch their own teams every week they wouldn't be so inclined to buy tickets to the local team's games.

That's a good point. I didn't think about the tickets. When I was in the Eagles/Ravens area, I pretty much always got Eagles games but only got Ravens games maybe half the time, if that. I still didn't go to more Ravens games than I normally would though.

When I've lived nowhere near Baltimore, I obviously didn't get the games. Ohio was nice though, I got 4 division games + primetime.

I thought I'd seen a thread here (last week?) where someone had posted about a service that was around 100.00, and you were able to view the game right after it was played? That would be alright with me. I just can't find the thread.

Oh yeah. NFL Game pass or NFL rewind or something. Kind of silly to spend 3 hours watching the game if it's not live though.

I think people in other countries can pay to get NFL Sunday Ticket streaming online. You could probably set up some sort of proxy situation if you know your tech stuff (and maybe have an out-of-country billing address).

Sounds like it.
NFL Rewind is $99. You can watch any game online, but you can't access the game until the morning. So for any Sunday game (including Sunday evening games) you have to wait until Monday morning. If the Pats played Monday night, you have to wait until Tue morning.

I get NFL Rewind each year. It's nice to watch some games that aren't shown on TV locally. Plus they have condensed mode where you can watch an entire game in 30 min. That alone is pretty much worth it.

Oh, that sounds pretty good. Not sure I'm going to buy, but do they have any sound from announcers/crowd noise? There's a similar thing on MLB.tv with extended highlights instead of just a 30 second clip (we're probably talking 10-30 minutes long). When I've used the condensed version once or twice, it was just totally silent.
