    Came across this site and I'm not sure if it's legit or not. Any other ideas for streaming the National Championship game from the web?

    I was gonna post this same thread but first noticed this...

    I have adblock plus installed in my firefox. What's noscript? Is there some setting I should make in adblock for this?

    I tried a week or so ago to get some other bowl game, found it on ESPN3 but they are only available if you are on a list of supported ISP's, and mine was not (I have sonic.net ADSL ~4.8mbps) so I was SOL. I want to see tonight's game!

    Did you see the Cotton Bowl? I never laughed so hard during a football game! :D

    Right now it says it's been seized by the government for copyright violations. :(

    The link in the OP wants you to download an app after registering and paying $30. Guess I'll have to read about it in the morning. Dang.

    Got there, downloaded and ran the 281k installer, got a window that promised HD streaming if I download the desktop app and/or plugin, but when I click to do those things nothing happens.

    Click the channel and then click the link under where it says hd stream. Don't click the hd stream button. There's four or five links there. Chances are you will have to change links several times throughout the game as they are taken down.

    It said on watchespn.com that the game was going to be blacked out, but apparently it's working just fine.

    don't worry, looks like the refs have been paid for an alabama win.

    For those that are in the West Coast, you can watch the game on ESPN3.com. The rest of us = SOL.

    Thanks, I'll try it, but I imagine that they will require me (like last week) to be in the list of supported ISPs...

    Edit: Yup, like last time I get a little window saying:

    We are unable to confirm ESPN3 access. Please verify that you are a customer of an ESPN3 affiliated provider.
