Watching the Air Force vs. ND Game For Free

I realize this is probably a post for the General Board, but I know that this board is by far the most read of all of them. So, I decided to post it here.

 

I was enlightened to this computer based option for watching the game from the Irish Illustrated board. TVU is a free software download that will allow you to access a bunch of different sports TV channels including CSTV (which is the only channel showing the game).

 

I just downloaded it and played with it a little bit and it seems legitimate and adequate. Better than nothing, at the very least.

 

Use as at your own risk. I'm not sure there are any risks but I don't know what the spyware, etc consequences are, if any. For me it is worth the risk.

 

Here is the link for the download:

Pretty cool stuff!

Not sure what you mean, GWood. Didn't see that there was a choice. You just need to download one of the versions of software based on your PC operating system configuration. Then once the software is downloaded go to the file you downloaded it to and click on the "Setup.exe" file. It will launch a wizard that will walk you through the set up. Once the setup is done, an icon should appear on your desk top for TVU and the TV viewer should launch.

i do knw that anyone who has comcast digital cable that the game is supposed to be free this weekend on CSTV. I was also told by Comcast that as long as you have the on demand feature and pay per view feature, you can order games on CSTV on a daily basis. Figured I'd also throw that out there even though some of you guys probably already know that.

 

 

Vagas, not sure the TV you got, but if you're gonna downlaod game and watch it on your PC or laptop or whiochever, you might be able to hook it up with a cable directly to your TV too, as long as your TV has that function

I read somewhere that CSTV is basically using this weekends game with ND to reach out to more people and show that they have excellent college football coverage. Thats probably why it's free-not sure though.

 

My buddy doesn't have CSTV in his cable package but since he could get the channel if he paid for it, he's getting it for free. I believe it's like an all weekend thing too-not 100% sure though

TVU is a Chinese company that is trying to start the lucrative business of taking (i.e., pirating) TV signals from around the globe and making them available on the internet. If successful, their money will probably come from smaller networks who want to make their content available online. The feed from the larger networks is meant to draw in customers; I'm not sure CBS, NBC, ESPN, CNN, BBC, etc. will ever be interested in parterning with such a company, but the lack of regulation by the Chinese government probably makes it difficult for them to shut the operation down.

 

TVU's idea is a fantastic one (in my opinion, all TV content should be free--I'm too cheap to spring for cable or dish). That said, I've never had success with the TVU player; the stream locks up after only a few minutes, and Windows starts sending error messages. My broadband is pretty fast, so I think the program has some glitches. Still, that may have been an earlier Beta version of the program; they may have improved it, but don't be surprised if it doesn't work too well.
