    So, last season we here in Chico got to see the Packers every single game (unless the 49ers played at the same time.) since this is Aaron Rodger's home town. Well here we are in week 2, the Packers play at 10 PT and the niners play at 1 PT yet for some reason our local FOX station is not showing the game! Not ANY game at ALL before the niner game! I have NFL RedZone, but it doesn't really show me the whole game =( NFL Sunday Ticket is out of the question.

    Here is question: How can I find and watch this game online? Do the Packers have a service? the NFL? Anything?! If anyone knows of anywhere that I can get this game streamed that would rock!

    Also, week 3 is the Packers / Bears match up. Once again the Niner game is being played at a different time than the Packers game, but I realllly don't want to miss this one!

    Thanks for any and all help!

    --Rob.

    I would think Fox does not have the national double header this weekend. I believe the networks alternate it. That is probably why the 9ers game is the only one you'll get. I do not do online streaming. DSL just won't cut it. Packer football every time is one of the three advantages to having the GreenBay TV broadcast towers 1-4 miles outside my front door. You may have to go elsewhere to watch. Try here : http://www.packerseverywhere.com/

    Yeah Chicago doesn't get the game either, so I used the Packerseverywhere to find the closest bar to go to.

    I know! What BS! I get to see the Steelers beat the hell out of the poor Seahawks instead.

    Oh believe me, I'd LOVE to see the Seahawks do the same thing, but my inner reality check is telling me that the Steelers are now pissed off and will be playing extra hard to make up for the Ravens embarrassment. Plus Seattle is still in rebuild mode and frankly are just not very good (yet). I'll still be watching this and hoping for an upset!

    Tough Luck

    Mediacom sucks down here and refuses to make a deal with FOX even though they made a deal with ABC to continue showing those stupid soap operas, so i have to watch an AFC game today. Can't even watch the Saints, which will be on Fox.

    Yea, they showed da bears getting their butt kicked here in I O W A....

    ...dozen of bears fans tuned in to watch them lose.

    Who won the SUPER BOWL again last year? Why would you not want to show that game?

    I think the networks who broadcast these games should provide live streaming of the game for a nominal single use fee. Not everyone has directv nor can they get it where they live. For instance, if the game is on Fox, you should be able to go to Foxsports and log in. Then use your credit card to pay a couple bucks to watch the Packers game. Instead of insisting on a season subscription, they could sell streaming for individual games and I think they'd make a bundle. Some of the "underground" streaming sites out there are inundated with viewers. Think of the extra money these networks could make for a minimal amount of effort.

    I don't think that it is ultimately a network issue. I think it is the NFL that controls broadcast and distribution rights and you can purchase a plan from the NFL (nfl.com -- GameRewind?).

    You can always check with this guy Greg Punzo, of Late Night Sports Talk, on Twitter. I don't know him, nor do I use Twitter, but he can usually tell you where to go.

    I think the audio version (FieldPass?) is live.
