I’ve been trying to ditch cable in favor of the Internet for a while now. My biggest hurdle comes every September when I turn to the Internet to watch NFL games. This year, thanks to the federal government, my options are dwindling fast. No more Ilemi.com. No more Channelsurfing.net. Even Justin.TV and uStream are coming up empty.
A quick search turned up NFL.com’s Preseason Live service. After watching a couple games I almost want to take back all the bad things I said about the NFaiL…almost.
For $20 I have access to every NFL preseason game live or on-demand and in HD. Additionally I can view up to four games at once, have access to a guide for all the games currently playing, and other tools such as game stats, scoring plays, and in-game chat. For a Bears fan living in the East this is a pretty sweet deal.
