If anyone could post threads where this has been posted to before or provide the actual websites of quality, low bandwidth, virus free, and easy to use websites online where I can catch the Broncos playing that would be great.

I tried the search feature on this website and my laptop froze up and did a Garcia to itself. I did not Windows had a suicide application.

Any help is appreciated.

Not that this is extremely helpful but: I watched the Pitt v. Ten game from my work computer the other night on nbc.com. We use a slow DSL at work and for the most part it was great. I think I was a minute or so off the live action.

I don't know if CBS does this, but its worth checking out.

You might find some places that stream the game but keep in mind since it's not really on the up and up, you are likely to be dealing with problems like the ones you described, especially if your laptop is on the blink.

You might be better off heading to the bar and getting a comfortable seat with a good view.

Either way, hope you find a way to catch the game. Good luck!

I am overseas in a very unpopular place.

A little streaming might not be such a bad deal.

I didn't realize that. Are you in the armed services? Hopefully one of the posters here can hook you up. I don't think the networks are streaming though - Thursday's game was an exception that the NFL especially authorized.

Don't people link to justin.tv for this type of thing? I'll poke around and see if I can figure anything out.

I checked out Justin.tv and the site looks safe and the bandwidth is reasonable. Might be a crapshoot as to whether someone broadcasts the game live though, and what the streaming quality will be. Some of the streams I just watched were cutting in and out, and I think that would be frustrating during the game.

BUT - if you are unable to watch live, NFL.com has a rewind package where you can watch the games in HD after they play. It actually looks like a pretty good deal:

They also have live audio streams:

As you no doubt know, the problem you are going to run into is that the NFL has very strict licensing deals for the live broadcasts. It's why I can't get an NFL Ticket equivalent on my Comcast service. The NFL online offerings I linked to above are actually new this season I think.

When do the NFL rewind games become available? The same day?

More on the NFLN stuff: The rewind broadcasts are avail within 24 hours, from what I am reading.

More good news - they are using the Move Media Player. Not sure if any of you have watched any of the ABC shows online (like Lost) but they use the same software. It is light years ahead of any other. I find the quality truly stunning - real HD, and the buffering technology is vastly superior, so the playback is extremely smooth. I play those shows on my big screen and they look AWESOME - at least as good as the HD content I get from Comcast.

Make sure you have a good, up to date browser, like Firefox 3.5 when you use it.

Yeah, being a Broncos fan and being in the military can be a bad deal.

The funny thing is that it's just as bad on the East coast. They just don't play Broncos games anywhere outside the Rocky Mountain time zone. In New York you can catch Jet's player offering his take on a game they got the crap beaten out of them in before you catch a Broncos game live.

I guess I am only allowed to use Field Pass. Live games only.

Its one stop shopping.

Hopefully some people who have used it can speak for its legitimacy.
