Does anybody here have a subscription to NFL Rewind? I thought this was the same as NFL Replay but apparently it's not. The website says, for $30 for the year, you get access to every NFL game through 2009 to the current week. You just can't watch the games live. You have to wait till Sunday is over to watch them, or Tuesday if the game is played on MNF.


I no longer have DirectV so I can't get the ticket and I work Sundays so this is probably my only chance to watch the Broncos. Not a bad deal really. $30 for the year, every single game, you just have to wait a day.

Wondering if anybody has this and how do you like it?

It's a good deal if you miss a game, or just want to catch another game that was awesome during the week. Stream quality is usually pretty good, but depends on how much stuff you have running, and your internet connection.

It's a lot better deal then league pass tho imo, if you don't mind waiting ten hours.

And after a bit more reading, you actually get more options then you would on NFL Replay. You get "coaches film" which sounds cool. Also has DVR mode where you can fast forward, rewind and pause.

Sounds cool. I'll probably give this a try if they announce Tebow is going to be the starter. I'll probably not be so thrilled if Orton stays the starter, lol.

If you use DVR, then this is a great option.

I have it and go through the game again play-by-play throughout the week when I have time. I enjoy it and am glad to have it.

Plus, if I can't find a good stream on the net, I can just wait until the evening and catch a commercial-free game.

I just signed up for it Figured at 30 incould not go to wrong.

The 350+ they want for the NFL ticket is just to much for some of us.

I went ahead and ordered the service. I have to say, it's pretty damn cool. I just run a HDMI from my PC to my LED LCD 1080P TV and it looks amazing.

And for $30 instead of $350 - hell yes. Heck with watching it live. I'll save the money and just watch it a few hours later in the late eve on Sundays. Actually saves me time also because you can skip through the slow parts, timeouts and halftime.

I have NFLST and Game Rewind. I DVR all the games, but if I want to go back and look at a single play or a couple plays, I go to Game Rewind.

In addition to watching the full game, they also have the condensed films (the Short Cuts for those who have NFL Sunday Ticket) that you can switch back and forth between. However, the real thing I use is that a side menu lists every play by quarter. Want to see the 4th and goal play where the Broncos didn't convert, just click on that play in the list of plays and you are taken directly to that point in the game.

The thing that sucked me into buying it, because I already have Sunday Ticket and wouldn't give that up, because I want to watch the games live, was the coaches film. The high endzone and high 50 yard line camera that shows all 22 players. I've been disappointed, because they only show it on a handful of plays, and several Broncos games have had no coaches film views.

Take that last Tebow play on Sunday. I went to Rewind yesterday, hoping it would have the coaches film view, so I could see if the receivers were open at any point, or if there was a receiver on his left that was open. Stuff like that. Not only did that play not have the coaches film. Not a single play from Sunday's game has the coaches film option.

I bought the live streaming of the 4 preseason games for 20 bucks. I saw theNFL rewind. I dont really need it. If I was in a position where I would miss the games regularly, I would have bought the package.

I like rewind, as it allows you to watch the game commercial free....I live in Iowa, so I don't get the Broncos live very much....that being said, Rewind is awesome and I combine it with RedZone, which is just fantastic and I don't miss the Ticket at all!!

Seems this is only set up with your computer and not an additional channel on digital cable, correct? $30 is a great deal and is your point of interest if anybody has a question on a play or series.

Or to watch the 2nd half of Sundays game, as you turned it off at halftime :strong:

I have it. It is what it is except I haven't seen the coaches film bit and I looked for it (maybe I'm just missing it). Has anyone been able to access the coaches film?

Yeah, its a little icon that looks like x's and o's on the right hand side of the window. It opens a scroll list of plays, including those for which the feature is available.

Its only available on select plays though.

None of the plays the last few games have had it. If you go to the week 2 Bengals game. Click on the button to show plays.

The Broncos first play: (15:00) K.Orton pass short right to E.Royal to DEN 34 for 14 yards (N.Clements). will have a button under it that says "Coaches Film."

If you click that, you will see the Coaches Film. There are a handful of plays in the early games. I know they had some in the Raider's game, because I used it to confirm that the Raiders were FOS claiming Janikowski's kick was 64 yards.
