NFL Live Streaming
      #1740691 - 08/11/17 07:19 PM (208.30.102.1)

Does anyone have any experience with or recommendations for NFL Game Pass, NFL Sunday Ticket or other method of live access to out of broadcast area NFL games while in the Virgin Islands for extended periods of time? Thanks.

Yeah, slingbox is really the only way to do it that I'm aware of. Even with streaming options, many don't work in certain locations, such as out of the country.

Thanks for both Slingbox recommendations. Seems like that or NFL Ticket, with an ATT/Directv access, are the two most common methods. Since the Slingbox remains at the "home" location, if you have problems with it there, do you just have someone nearby go fix it for you? Seems pretty easy. Thanks again.

NFL Sunday ticket is $500, never had a problem with my home connection, unless your wifi is disconnected, slingbox will work

Only problem I ever had with our slingbox was when I unplugged it and forgot to plug it back in before being away.

We have take a few different approaches on trips. We have DirecTV Sunday Ticket at home so we are able to stream the games online which works as long as you have a VPN setup with a US location. We had also done this in the past with the ipad app but DirecTV wised up to that and started requiring location services to be turned on so the VPN solution does not work any more on the ipad. We have also paid for the international NFL streaming which if I recall was pretty reasonable and available in the BVI since you are outside of the US. I think it was a recurring subscription so remember to cancel it after you leave if you take this approach. I don't remember the exact cost but it was pretty reasonable.

Once you buy the Slingbox, there are no monthly charges. Directv, which I have, live Directv is not easy to navigate

Yes, Slingbox does look like the way to go. I had to confirm it would integrate with our Control 4 home system and it does. Should be just fine. TTOL comes through again.
Thanks to all.
