Hey guys, I know this subject has been gone over before, but I wanted to ask again. I just received a notice that Slingbox is shutting down their servers effective November 9th. This has been how I’ve watched Lions games since moving to KC, streaming from my Dad’s cable box in Livonia.
I know there are some streaming services you can use, but all seem to only include your local tv network. Is there a way to watch local tv for areas that are out of the local market?
I don’t think he has to use a VPN because his dad lives in Michigan. I swear he needs to try the NFL+ option and set it up in Michigan as a case study for the rest of us. To be able to watch the Lions for $10/month by piggybacking off of a Michigan family member would be a game changer for some people here.
No doubt. I signed up through a VPN that routed through Detroit but the app registered it as an international account. Long story short, I got screwed week 1 but my friend bailed me out with his Sunday ticket login.
I do wonder if my brother in laws Comcast login from Detroit would give me the lions game in Portland.
She is your meal ticket to football. The “student discount” functions as more than a discount. For years it has been a path to stream Sunday Ticket in locations where they normally force you to have DirecTV to buy Sunday Ticket.
I faithfully had DirecTV and subscribed to Sunday Ticket for a decade at an average of $300 per year for the Ticket package. In the last few years I moved to an odd situation where DirecTV’s system says I can get DTV at my residence but I actually can not. The one cable company I can subscribe to has a monopoly over the area and it costs over $200/month for service because they know they are the only player available. If I simply punch in my details to DirecTV they won’t let me buy Sunday Ticket without having the DirecTV service, which literally is not an option for me. So I was able to use the student option. Not only did it reduce my typical Sunday Ticket bill from $300 to $99, it allowed me to stream it without having DTV service.
Go fishing and visualize a Lions victory. When you get home, cook your fish dinner and go to bed immediately. Don’t turn on the TV, especially the sports networks and you’ll feel good! Repeat every Sunday!
