Watching games online.

I am living in a pretty remote location these day and I don't have cable tv. Is there some pay per view service where I can watch the games on my computer. I have rocket hub satellite internet which works well for live streaming I just need the access and I can't get on with TSN or ESPN3 because they both need cable provider info.

I hope someone can point me in the right direction.

MM.

The short answer is, no. However, if you google "streaming sports", you will find links to a variety of sites that provide live streams of live sporting events without regard to copyright law or the ethics of reproducing content without the owner's permission.

Okay thanks, I will take it as a no, and just keep shanking from the CFL withdrawals. Darn shame TSN doesn't offer a subscription service for CFL I would be in for it for 29.95 a year or whatever. More and more people are moving away from TV and the companies just gotta adjust.

I have tried to make use of similar sites for watching La Liga games after BeIN sports acquired the rights to Spanish footie games. The drawback I found was you needed an account with a betting service like Bet365 and the image quality was terrible. I gave up after about 15 minutes.

Re: Watching games online.

There are a couple of guys who post full games to Youtube a day or two after they're played. They even clip the ads out. That's probably your best ticket.

Cheers,

Re: Watching games online.

My team in England were relegated from the Premier League last season so even though I pay for a large sports package I was unable to see the games that are televised in the UK. After a lot of looking around I finally found this site. http://livetv.sx/en/ I checked and they do cover the CFL. A word of warning though as there are lots of attempts to install junk on your computer with loads of pop ups. I found the best way is to use Chrome with the adblock extension enabled. I am like you in that I wish there was a pay service that I could subscribe to which would make life a lot easier.

Re: Watching games online.

Go to reddit.com and look up CFL streams. There's always somebody that streams that games live every week.
