NFL  > General NFL  > Need Help on seeing NFL games on-line while travelling
August 18, 2013, 05:18 PM
All,
will be moving and travelling throughout the season this year. Living in NC, Fl, TX for parts of the season. Does any one have a proven suggestion to see the games on-line? Looking at NFL.com they offer a package of the games AFTER the games are played. There is the usual garbage of spammers who come here trying to tout their games on line but those are generally crap. I've watched NBC's SNF and that is pretty good with a good hi-speed cable. I'm looking for something like that maybe.

I don't think Dish or DIrect TV packages are an option due to the amount of moves I'm making.

Can I get some suggestions on how to see my favorite team this year on line.

THanks in advance

Direct TV has an option that if you purchase the Premium NFL Ticket, you have the option to watch live games on your PC, Laptop, or Tablet. The only bad thing about it is that none of the National games, or the games local to your viewing area are viewable, since they are on free TV.

Another option would be a Slingbox, which would let you view any channel live that your TV gets where ever you are, plus your DVR remotely.

Direct TV is only option, to get all games live.

thanks for the words. I don't want ALL the games. For example the Jaguars are of little interest to me (sorry to Jaguar fans), like the telecom companies the NFL wants to "Bundle". So I have to buy phone/internet/cable from the telecom for $99/month and I also have to get ALL the NFL games to justify the high price. What I want is Cowboy games (please spare me the gibes, I watched at 1-15 too). Direct TV is not really an option as I will most likely move 4 times during the season so I need something I can take with me. The slingbox is a possibility but my family is so technically challenged that the idea of leaving them with a slingbox....well I'd be better served to give a chimp a cray computer as that would get set up properly more likely. I'll keep searching.

This is a streaming site I've used before, but you need to download an ad blocker.

I'll give that a try and have used similar sites before but they can be so hit and miss. I'm willing to pay for better streaming but it seems that may not be available. I'll put your suggestion in my
favorites and try next time there is some football on.

Maybe b/c I didn't see the Cardinals game? Look I'm a glutton for punishment.

If you live in the Dallas area, a Slingbox is your best option, as all of the games are on free broadcast...If you do not live in the Dallas viewing area, you have to get Direct TV, they have an exclusive deal with the NFL.

A Slingbox is idiot proof, all they have to do is make sure it is on, you would login into the Slingbox website where ever you are, and have access to your cable set top box, as if you were at home.

I don't live in the Dallas area or in Texas at all. I was afraid that as you state... "Direct TV, they have an exclusive deal with the NFL." So that sounds like it could put me in the realm of the punky on-line transmissions that are not HD and generally so bad not worth even $5. I'll look into a slingbox as a buddy of mine lives in Austin.

Thanks to all for inputs. This thread seems to have run its course.
