I'm going home for Thanksgiving and my parents don't have nfl network. I told my dad to spend whatever it takes to get it, ill pay it back!... he called and the stupid cable company and they don't even offer it... it is under review! My question is, besides listening on kcfx... is there anyway to watch live t.v. over the internet? I remember last year someone had the game over a feed from their computer... will someone do that again? To make matters worse I doubt the sports bars are going to be open on Turkey day.

I'm still amazed that this question is asked every couple weeks.

So, the Thanksgiving games are not Nationally broadcast this year?

They are.

It's just the late one is on the NFL Network.

Bob Dole's advice would be to feign illness and stay home to watch the game.

Not quite correct. The Thanksgiving NIGHT game is only being broadcast on the NFL Network. The other two games will be nationally broadcast as usual.

There will be plenty of drinking establishments still open, and likely some will have DirectTV and/or NFL Network.

The only warning I'll give is that my stream will be unmanned that game (I'll be at Arrowhead). If there are any problems with it, I won't be there to fix them.

Even so, I would imagine that there will be plenty of backup options available between our own "backup" stream and the streamers at http://streamednfl.blogspot.com/ .

The NFL network is nationally televised, i.e., it is shown in every region of the country.

I still dont quite understand. Ill be at the game, but my parents wont, and they cant miss the game. Will the game still be on the local channels or is it NFL network only.

Some bars will be open that night since no one usually works the day after the turkey. People can drink like it's a Friday or Saturday.

Local channels in each teams area will carry the game.

If you have trouble, recxjake, I can possibly model the game using my old electric football set and send you a film of it.

Otherwise, sports bars or sopcast are good.
