I'm am stationed (I'm in the US Navy) in Washington State, last year I missed almost all of the Minnesota games.
Does Comcast offer anything to where I can watch EVERY SINGLE Viking game or is there any other avenue I can take to be sure I don't miss any action-packed Viking game that doesn't include going to a damn sports bar.

I tried the online chat with Comcast and it was utterly worthless, not that I'm surprised.
Any details would be great.


Thanks.

Not via comcast.
Direct Tv is the only reliable option.

HOWEVER, watch us here on gamedays....we ferret out the gameday streams and post them so you can watch online.

****we don't stream, don't sue us, we just find folks that do****

usually for stuff like this try the help section, not a big dea though.

But with that being said I do not think they do, unless they offer nfl Sunday ticket. Otherwise there is a section on PPO for Vikings Bars(or at lest there was) Not sure where it is but I am sure someone knows, not sure how up to date it is.
Otherwise I am sure that there are fans that you could meet up with that go to some location and and start your own mini-club. I am pretty sure most bars if you became regulars each week would be sure to have the game on one of the stations. Even though PPO is by far the best :) there are also several other Websites that have fans from all over the country that I am sure have a fan or 2 in your area, that I am sure woudl love to meet up or whatever.

you can try http://www. streamtvnow.tv

Last season they had every single NFL game available to stream.. Thats what I did living in residence at the university, and will do again this season.
Costs only about $15 for the season.

I too tried to see what Comcast had after I was transferred (I too am err was in the Navy (RET)) to Jacksonville and was no longer able to get DirectTV due to the tress in the yard.

Comcast has nothing at all.
I ended up going to a wings place just down the street that will put the game on for me.
Sometimes I even get sound!!

I did finally get to see the Vikings for the first time in person when they came to town and stomped the Jags!
Nothing but purple left in the stadium in the 4th quarter!

Yeah, what Webby said.

DirecTV has exclusive rights to Sunday Ticket, so it's your only option.

I did it for years and loved it!

Wouldn't he need a base for the slingbox in somewhere that has it broadcast?

How well do those things work?

Find a local sports bar and watch with a bunch of drunk fans, that's what I do in NJ... most of them will have Direct Ticket and have most if not all the games on their TVs.
