    this only works if you have cable through one of the providers they list – if you don’t it won’t work.

    Why are they leaving money on the table by not allowing people without cable to pay to watch streaming online?

    I’m not interested in cable, but I’d like to watch the game and would gladly pay for a stream of the game.

    I think we’re just going to have to pressure politicians to allow ala carte cable and stop the bundling nonsense where you have to pay for channels that you never ever watch.
