Let's resume a BBI tradition: options for the cable-free

Moondawg : 8/11/2017 2:12 pm
So, for those of us who've cut the cord. How are you watching tonight?

I have NFL game pass, but I'm not sure if they will let us watch the game in real time or if we have to wait until it is over, like the regular season games.
I'm on vacation and have been having luck

with the Reddits for streaming of MLB games, hoping that luck continues around gametime with a link to tonight's game.

Make sure to wrap a condom around your laptop first.
You can watch it live on gamepass

check reddit for nfl streams around gametime and

download the ACE player. Much easier than any bootleg site or kodi addon, and i've tried them all. It's P2P streaming and the quality is usually in HD. Reddit usually has the Network link which you then just paste into the source field in the ACE Player. Directions are on the google.

This.

Preseason games are in real time on Game Pass, regular season games are delayed until the last 4 PM EST game is over.
HD Antenna  
nms24 : 8/11/2017 3:17 pm : link
Bought on Amazon for like $20. Your TV needs to have an HD tuner - some do some don't nowadays.
Anyone have a good suggestion  
colin : 8/11/2017 3:23 pm : link
For watching it on an iPhone? I'm gonna be on the train. I was thinking the NFL mobile app but they don't always have the games.
Go to this link.  
MBavaro : 8/11/2017 4:22 pm : link
The game thread will be posted between 20-10 minutes before the start of the game. It will fill up quickly with links to try.
Always had great success with it.

Why download the ACE player?

Thought downloading from these sites is a no-no.
separate question but I'll post it here -  
Del Shofner : 8/11/2017 4:26 pm : link
the kids are taking me to the Yankees-Red Sox game tonight as my Father's Day present. So I'll miss the Giants game in real time. Anyone know if it's going to be replayed later tonight, or perhaps tomorrow?
Ace is kinda like a torrent player for network feeds  
mattlawson : 8/11/2017 5:02 pm : link
Download it separately. You will see a string of characters to copy and paste into the remote feed text field. That's your "channel" - it will connect you to the feed after a few moments.

If you have a mac there is a way to get a package of ace player using wine and wine bottler to run PC programs inline on your Mac OS. I've done it through googling around.

Many games are avail that way

There are usually streams posted that are specifically marked "Mobile" which usually use a HTML5 player which is compatible.

Thanks Matt. So I download the player 1 time? I get the url or 'characters' from the Game comments thread on Reddit?

And It's strictly streaming even though a 'torrent'?

if you go there now there are a couple active already. There is one "YT Stream" in 1080p that will most likely be the best since it's hosted through YouTube live. (so no ads/malware BS)
HD Antenna  
jpennyva : 8/11/2017 7:05 pm : link
Can anyone recommend a good HD antenna? We are considering cutting the cord but the antenna I have for a TV in another room does not receive as many broadcast channels as I know are available in my area (DC 'burbs) and I at least want to receive the main (ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX) which the current anntena does not receive. Thanks!
I have game pass  
Moondawg : 8/11/2017 7:05 pm : link
I can watch it on the computer but not on the Game Pass App on my Smart TV. Anybody else have this? I am out of state.

I'm watching a link the old fashioned way. I'll experiment with another game Lol

Thanks for the tutorial
Thanks again to Jay in Toronto!

He saved the game for many of us on the game thread with his link once the NFL network changed to the Chiefs game.

Is there an NFL Game Pass app on your smart TV? I've looked and there does not seem to be one available from mine (LG) and when I tried to cast the game from my phone (obviously small screen) to my TV, I received an error message that the NFL does not allow casting - WTF? What difference does it make? That was my experience last night.
I have the app for my Roku tv  
Moondawg : 8/12/2017 10:19 am : link
it's just a TV but with integrated Roku architecture.
