Does anyone here have gamepass?

I have a scheduling conflict tonight and will not be able to catch the beginning of the game. If I bought Game Pass, would I be able to come home at say... 9:30 and start the game from the beginning like a DVR?

I have game pass Europe. On that platform you can start from the beginning when the game is in the middle. YMMV.

Confirm CincyInDC info.  As long you're not in a blackout area you'll be good.

 

Awesome. Thanks!

I currently have DirectTV Now which is the streaming not dish service.  I have the cheap package and it does not have NFL Network.  The upgraded package does but it would be $20 more  a month since I am grandfathered at $35 a month.   Never have been a fan of the Roku or FireTv interface with DirectTV Now but the service has always worked very well.

 

Hulu is $39 a month but it doesn't have NFL Network either.  

 

FuboTv is a 44.95 a month had has a shitload of sports channels plus the ones Mrs SF2 likes but it doesn't have ANY ESPN channels.  You get 3 Big TEN and 10 BEIN channels with the cheap package plus local NBC, Fox and CBS.  ABC is no problem with the antenna.  No ESPN means no Monday night football.  I plan to use the trial for tonight just for the game.

 

YoutubeTV looks great and has ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox, ESPNs at $40 a month but again no NFL Network.  Has 2 fucking Major League Baseball channels though.  yay!.  

 

Playstation Vue pretty much same as DirectTV Now.  $40 package has no NFL Network, $50 does. 

 

Does anyone know of a cheap alternative that has both ESPN and NFL Network?  Granted $50 a month plus the $64 for internet is still WAY better than the $220 a month for basic cable with Spectrum.

I don't have it but looking at slingtv might have them both.

I don't think you'll be able to watch it on Game Pass in the U.S. until the game is over: https://digitalcare.nfl.com/hc/en-us/articles/211374508-NFL-Game-Pass

 

Here's the relevant portion: "Sunday night, Monday night, Thursday night and Saturday games are available following the conclusion of each telecast"

This also could be true, I was going by what I was seeing during the preseason.

Slinig looks good if I can figure out the whole blue and orange channel thingy.  No local channels with it though  in Cincy besides Fox

That's a bummer...

Even worse: 

Free Trial users: Preseason games aired on NFL Network will not be available until 72 hours after the conclusion of the telecast. Thursday night games will be available three days after the game has ended.

3 days? So the NFL is committed to worse service than Ten Yard Torrents? (Unless you want to pay for an unknown service up front)

And am I reading this right that you can't even watch the games live? 

Well, f that. I'll go get my wick waxed tonight and worry about finding a torrent on Friday morning.

Yeah, and the guys over at TYT will have that shit ripped and uploaded by midnight. It'll be sitting on my HDD by the time I wake up.

Smells like clickbait - I don't see anything there about how to watch the Bengals-Ravens game, but it's vague enough to show up in search engines.   Both teams are featured in the little 40-second clip so technically we just watched them.  The NFL doesn't own the phrase "Thursday Night"...  You get the idea..

 

Hey maybe we can drive the search engines here for a few cheap clicks

 

IT IS NOW THURSDAY NIGHT AND THERE IS A FOOTBALL GAME ON LATER AND THE BENGALS ARE PLAYING THE RAVENS AND I AM NOT WEARING A WATCH THAT I GOT FOR FREE BECAUSE I FOUND IT IN A STREAM

Yeah, I usually contribute. Problem is that I will be having a nice wholesome girl do some very nice unwholesome things to me tonight... I was willing to pay for Game Pass if it would let me get home at 10:00 and go back to the start of the game.

I'll just wait... We're off tomorrow for the hurricane, so at least I won't have to deal with office conversation about last night's game.

Walk Street Journal quoted those links for the phone.   Others have too but I've never had to try them yet.

Football fans I know who do the streaming thing buy what they need just for football season and then cancel. That means 4 mos of paying someone for NFL Network and ESPN
