Anyone on the board have this? is it worth it? http://www.nfl.com/gamerewind Anyone else thinking about it?
I don't have cable and thinking about getting it for next year if its offered. I have the NHL gamecenter live and its cool! I might sign up for the MLB TV but they do black outs of local teams and since I'm a white sox fan and live in Chicago I wont be able to watch the games on it, I have to find a way around this little annoyance. But this game rewind sounds good.

Comcast had a 10-15 min compliation of all NFL games every Tuesday, all you had to do was pay for the sports package.

It really only showed the big plays and scores of course but it was hard to gauge the momentum swings.

It was nice and quick but no way told the story of the game.

That said I watched the AFC west games I missed.

Do you get Comcast or the city cable?

No cable. Just internet. I would watch the games on Justin tv or the like. Choppy and unreliable. I could wait the 1 day to watch the game. And its the full game.

I thought about it to rewatch but I don't think you would get to watch during the game so you would have to wait a day.

I know,

What cable company can you get? I thought some places in the city did not carry comcast.

Directv is $240 a year and this is $320 (16 weeks at $19.99).

Get a dish on one tv and get the package, it will pay for itself in 2-3 years.

Its not 19.99 per week. You can get a season pass for 19.99. Its 4.99 per week.

Yeah........ $320 is not in my budget........ I was hoping that NFL would follow in MLB's footsteps with showing the games on the internet. I guess with Direct they cant.

That is like getting day old bread for $.1. There has to be a catch. NFL is not going to give their product away for $19.99 for entire season. You can't even get an NFL tee shirt for under that anymore, no way you get 21 full weeks of games for under 20 bucks.

It's not a 1 day wait, it's a 1 season wait!
You can only get this after the season.
It's the same product as Gamepass HD which exists for non-north american countries (costs 239 bucks and includes all live streams), only for after the season...
The product/technology is great, the streams are superb. I was a happy customer last season. The only drawback is that the delay is even worse than on the illegal live streams.. I think it's up to one minute. So you absolutely can't participate in the OM chat.

So you dan't copy the stream and burn to DVD's?

Thanks Lord Helmchen I wasn't sure as I found this after the season ended.
