I've been in Texas for three years now so I've done some maneuvering to watch the Panthers in Cowboys/Texans territory.  In 2011 I went to bars and streamed the games online.  It got kinda frustrating at times because the stream wasn't always that good and going to a bar isn't always what I wanted to do when I'm hungover and my friends are too hungover to come with me haha.

 

In 2012 I bought Sunday Ticket for the PS3 which worked out well.  It was a generally high quality stream and the game was available unless the Panthers were in primetime or were playing a Texas team.  In 2013 you could buy Madden 25 for $100 and get NFL Sunday Ticket for mobile and computer.  I bought that in a heartbeat and watched the games on my computer hooked up to my TV.  Solid choice all year.  

 

This year I'm not sure what I'm going to do.  I tried to buy Sunday Ticket for the PS3 again (which I heard was going to be available) but it's not.  I'm wondering if DirecTV is just waiting until the last possible minute to offer it for the PS3 to get as many people as possible to register for their subscription instead of just buying Sunday Ticket on the Playstation.  If they don't I might be hitting up the bars again...

I think I'm just going to buy NFL game pass so I can watch on my phone as well. I have MLB.TV that I use on my phone and it's great.

Does anyone have this? Does it work on the phone alright?

some of the online sites most people know of are shite...  there's a good one out there that's at least standard quality otherwise if you can't get ticket online then you only have so many options.

I moved to Annapolis, Maryland from Charlotte last year. It was all online streams for me save for a few weeks we were on national tv. Streams are, as everyone has mentioned, low quality and unreliable.

I think I'm gonna try slingbox this year and have one of my friends in Charlotte hook it up to their cable box. I should then be able to get the games in HD on my computer and I'll just hook my computer up to the big screen.

Yea Austin.  I've watched a couple games with Delhommey and I've got some friends who moved down here from NC I watch games with sometimes.  Everyone's so damn busy though.

I live in Montgomery County Md and normally just go to the Greene Turtle and make sure one of the tvs in front of me is on the panther's game.  Any huddlers in the area that want to meet up and turn Sundays into a drunk fest let me know.

Like I do every single year... A bar in the city that has Sunday Ticket. Sucks when a Pats game is on too and all the fat bastards cheering for them won't shut up but at least I get to see our boys in action.

I had to watch the Panthers when they 1-15 while I was living in Philly. I had to fight just to get one TV turned to them. It was always the smallest one in the worst location that never got any waitress service. Pretty sure the TV was black and white, too. That season was the most I've ever consistently drank on Sundays.

In Falcon/Titan territory at the moment. Will be trying to find a local bar to watch the games.

Stream online mostly, though that's a dicey proposition at best. Watch a lot of RedZone though, and Scott Hanson is the man.
