    First off, if it wasn't for Packers football and the NFL I would not even have cable/satellite. We watch shows on Netflix/Hulu/Amazon, news is all online and I watch MLB.tv for baseball(it's sooo much better than tv). So I pay a lot per month for channels we never watch. If there was an NFL.tv I would cut the cord. And use the money saved to get to Lambeau for a bigtime matchup! :) Just made my 2nd sunday ticket payment and I really like it. But nothing else. NFL needs to look to the future.

    NFL doesn't really need to adopt that as a business model, at least not now. MLB does because they play 162 games a year and need people to watch in any way they can. On the other hand, NFL has no issues with people watching.

    They have no issues... But let's say they charged $400 to watch every game online except for the primetime games. They would make so much MORE money by doing that.

    If you get NFL Sunday Ticket, you can watch all the games online. ;)

    Guys for those of us living outside the USA, its $150 for the entire season every single game.

    Its called NFL gamepass. Online streaming of every game.

    Its due to the TV licensing deal that NFL has in the USA it cannot have its own stream online

    How you figure? When I checked into it, it was 139 pounds, which equates to $200

    But you do have to pay extra for that feature.

    They reduced it this season. You can get regular season for £99 and regular plus playoff for £129. Or follow your team for £85

    There are live feeds for every game. Or at least that's what I hear

    Let me ask you this:

    If I can't for some reason get to my computer at game time, can I watch the game from the beginning even if it's already in the 2nd quarter?

    Yes you can sir. Plus they have a little highlight thing at the bottom to show the big plays and you can just watch those if you want.

    And every single game every single week is being streamed live and if your connection supports it you can have multiple games running on at the same time

    So I am always switching games to watch the ones I want.

    Watch an MLB game on .tv. It's so much better than horrid fox and CBS play by play nonsense.

    Hmm, looks like it's cheaper in UK, I paid 160 Euros (200 USD, 126 GBP) for regular season :eek:
    However, best choice for me because I can watch every Packer game and all other games I want to.

    And as GreenBlood wrote, a fast (European) VPN Account (HMA e.g.) could help ;)

    This conversation makes me glad I'm not a Buccaneer fan any more.

    Specifically, go to CactusVPN. Get a Netherlands VPN account. Log in to it. Go to gamepass.nfl.com. Profit.
