    Getting the Pats in Boise on Internet

    Me and the wife live in Boise Id and I am tired of Dicect TV and their overcharging for the NFL and having to sign a 2 year deal when the only reason I have TV is for the NFL season. Does anyone know if I can get ALL the Pats games on the internet and be able to tape them --my wife works Sat/Sunday nites,(13 hour shifts) so she has to watch the games Monday morning. Thanks for any adeas-I'm not very computer savvy.

    Jimmy I got all the Pats games last year on http://www.firstrow1.eu/ Your internet has got to be fast and I am not sure how you would tape it. They broadcast all sports, every game, so you can go there now and try to pull up a Red Sox game and see how it works for ya. Good luck

    Re: Getting the Pats in Boise on Internet

    Dude, why ya paying for the Sunday ticket?  I have had direct tv for 3 years now and have paid a total of $14 for the Sunday ticket.  First year free due to being a new customer. Second year I ended up getting so many credits that I got paid a few bucks for getting it and last year I paid only a few dollars for it.  Total cost for all 3 years = $14.

    You gotta call them up, get the retention department and tell them something along the lines of... You really like Direct TV but the only reason you have it is for the football package but you aren't able to afford it this season and that (name of other cable provider in your erea) has called you and is wanting to buy you out of your contract with direct tv (if you are in contract with them).  Then ask is there anything they can do to keep you as a customer?  If you aren't in contract with direct tv then just tell them the other cable company has offered you a really good deal to save money.

    They will either offer you a discounted price on the Sunday Ticket or tell you no.  If they tell you no or offer you something less then a good deal on the Sunday ticket then just tell them you will think about it and call them back.  Wait a few days, call them back and try it all over again with a different person in the retention department.  It may take a couple times to get the deal but it's worth trying a few times to get it.  The most I have had to call back and do this was twice.  Give it a shot!   Worse they can say is no. 

    Also, I haven't heard or seen the price for this year but I do know that last year they came out with new Sunday Ticket Pricing.  They broke up the package to where you can either get the Sunday Ticket, the Red Zone and to go package or all 3.  I think the ST was like $200 alone.  Better then the previous year of having to get it all for $335.

    Re: Getting the Pats in Boise on Internet

    There comes a time in life when us west coast guys end up at the sports bar. Its called Pats games. Most of the games start at 10am. Both pubs in my area open early and serve breakfast food until noon and switch over  to pub chow. Its way fun, most of the ten people people who show for the AM games are from the east coast and half are Pats fans. The owner doesn't really care if we eat or not, coffee is fine with her, but the food is great.

    I dropped the Sunday ticket last year and payed an extra 7.95 on comcast for the sports package that has a similar sunday ticket. They show the redzone channel all day which switches between games. U may also be able to go on demand by tuesday and get the 10 minute highlights of each game but not sure of any internet game streaming sites. I mean I do, but I wouldnt feel comfy giving them out. They are sort of like pirate sites. You may end up going to 50 links by time the games over just to watch it. Thats more of a hassle to me. Good luck tho'

    It doesn't matter where you live in terms of using the internet. There is no way to do it unless you go to NFL.com or NFL Network.com, where you can sign up for some kind of a fan package and get access to actual game tape, which might include access online to games as well.

     

    http://www.nfl.com/coachesfilm

    I don't know because I haven't looked into it, but I would try that.

    The only other option is first row sports which is a streaming site for sports, but it's a grainy feed and you'll miss having it on your big, HDTV.

    Fiinally, threaten to leave Direct TV right before the season starts, and they sometimes negotiate a price for the NFL Ticket with you.

     




     

    I've used First Row and it works OK and is better than nothing.  BTW, if you have a Lap Top with a HDMI connection, you can run a HDMI Cable to your TV and watch it on your Big Screen.   

     

    As you know, it has been fortunate that we've been getting a lot of Patriot games out of the Raleigh CBS affiliate.    I usually only have had to use the Computer for games against Buffalo etc.

    My wife and I also watch all the Pats games and we live in Florida.  This may not be a solution for you, but for me I have a son who lives in the Boston area.  I bought a Slingbox and it is hooked up to his spare TV/Internet.  So I log into that Slingbox and I can watch all his local channels -- and it is all perfectly legal.  I hook up an HDMI cable from my lapdtop to the big screen TV and so we watch the games on the big screen.

    My Slingbox is now four years old, and so I don't get the HD version.  However, after a couple of minutes you get used to the low def.  At least I get the real-time action AND I get the sound -- something I wouldn't get at a sports bar. 

    The Slingbiox is under $200 and is a ONE TIME expense.  If you know someone in the Boston area -- with a fast internet -- I'm sure he wouldnt mind having it hooked up to his second TV and internet.  You also need a fast internet.

    Both www.firstrow1.eu/sport/american-football.html  as well as, www.vipbox.tv/sports/football.html  has served me well in Florida.  Definitely not HD but the picture quality and audio is adequate.  Also, I use a Netgear Push2TV box to WiFi my laptop to a 42" TV.  In addition, I have a DVD recorder hooked up to my TV to record games for later review and analysis. 

    Works for Red Sox and Celtics as well.

    Re: Getting the Pats in Boise on Internet

    You can usually just download the game from a torrent site. All NFL games are available (usually in HD) by the next day. The 1pm games are usually up the same day.

    You can set a PVR to record live streams, but it is going to be difficult, require additional hardware and the video quality will most likely be terrible. If you are time shifting anyway, Bit Torrent is a much better option for you.

    You can also split the Sunday Ticket with a friend or relative. Have them add a Direct TV reciever to their account for 5 or 6 dollars a month. Then they can give the reciever to you. Unless you connect it to a phone line, there is no way that DirectTV can tell that it's not located in the other person's home.

     

    Either way, there is no legal option for what you want to do. When I lived outside of New England, I thought Sunday Ticket was well worth the price. If you consider the cost of going to even just one game, it puts things into perspective. It's really not that much money. But that's up to you. The risk is low. But it's not zero.

    I use to use first row but I have been having good luck with this site. Its the same thing you stream the game.  I find there is less lagging.
