Not in the Panthers TV market? Your ticket for replays as little as $30.

I have a HD projector and the streams aren't HD.   At least the ones I have seen.   Plus I can afford it so no biggie at the moment.  However if I was on a budget this would seem like a great alternative.

If only. Most of the bars around here only play the Dolphins and Buccaneers games.

I bought the $40 Game Rewind pass (All 32 teams) last week. With nothing worth watching on TV, me and my wife have been watching old games at night before bed. In my opinion, it's worth every penny to be able to go back and watch games as far back as 2009. We hook up the computer to our HDTV and it does stream in HD.

 

Last night, we watched the 2011 Monsoon Bowl (Which I was at) and it was great to relive those memories. 

 

You can save clips, watch the 30min "Condensed" version that goes from snap-to-snap, and make your own highlight reels.

 

PLUS! If you have a tablet. You can stream them on there and go into the "Coaches Tape" and dissect each play, with X's, O's, and being able to draw on the plays just like the commentators do during game day. It's a great tool to use in studying our team and our performance each week.

 

I will guarantee I'll be using it all season long to go back and see each play, study our film, and even study up on the next team we face in their recent games. 

 

As for this being your only source for watching Panthers games, if you have no options other than streaming it online (BEWARE THESE SITES ARE FULL OF VIRUSES) you have the option to turn of scores so nothing gets spoiled. The wait maybe be a few hours, but what's that compared to not seeing anything but the highlights? 

 

Like I said it's worth every cent, and it can give you football all week long. BEST $40 I've spent this year and I've only had it a week.

OH what a decision! Can I really give up watching the game live? Will it totally suck the excitement out if I know the game's outcome was settled hours ago? Can I really get into it at 8:30, feeling the pressure of a clutch play when the Huddle has been dissecting the win or loss since 4pm?

 

Most importantly, how much will I miss going on the Huddle and ranting about botched plays as they happen?

 

But on the other hand, the beer I have in my fridge now is free, and I can sip a nice scotch from the comfort of my house rather than guzzle Miller Light between obnoxious drunk Steelers fans and their horrible, horrible looking womens. And It's not like I can't occasionally go watch games live at the bar. And at least I won't have to plan my whole Sunday around the game. I can even go shopping at the outlet malls, and then catch up after I bought a pair of irregular chinos on tax-free weekend. 

 

BUT ONCE YOU STOP PLANNING YOUR SUNDAYS AROUND A LIVE FOOTBALL BROADCAST...THE TERRORISTS HAVE WON!

 

What to do?

Will be picking up the $70 package. Gotta scout the opponents. Didnt' know you could save clips.

 

And I did pre-order the Madden, there's alot of confusion, but from everything I've read you get the NFL ticket (PC, tablet, phone) code regardless of DTV status. And it's thru Amazon and I'm sure they will take care of their customers if it doesn't work.

People pay for Sunday Ticket over streaming because they'd rather watch HD than something that looks like a potato is capturing it.

I have a Slingbox hooked up to my parents TV, so I can watch live TV on my computer anywhere as long as I have an internet connection.  It's legal.  If you have close family in the Panthers viewing area, look into getting a Slingbox.

I could be reading this wrong, but the way I read it, if you are in an area that has DirectTV then you are not eligible to use the $99 Madden code only.

 

• Fans who are not currently DirecTV subscribers but are able to receive DirecTV service will receive a promo code entitling them to $10 off per month for their first year of service and one year of NFL Sunday Ticket Max at no additional charge.

• Fans who are already DirecTV and NFL Sunday Ticket Max subscribers can access NFL Sunday Ticket on computer and mobile devices using their current DirecTV username and password.

• For fans unable to receive DirecTV service, each Madden NFL 25 Anniversary Edition will include a unique code to access the 2013 regular season (17 weeks) trial of NFL Sunday Ticket on computers, tablets, and mobile devices- including access to the award-winning Red Zone Channel.

weird question, but when you're watching the replay of the game, does it open and play in another window/program? (such as WMP) or does it play right there in your browser?

 

I'm curious about this, too.   I currently hook a HDMI cable between my laptop and TV to stream but I'm thinking about buying the new Chromecast.   It cost $35 and supposedly will stream anything that will play in the Chrome browser with no cables.
