    As much as I love to recommend NFL Sunday Ticket, he was looking for a free alternative. We suggested NFL.com and Sirius, both which seemed to be outside the acceptable budget.

    But if you're going to get the NFL Sunday Ticket, either set aside 3 hours on Sunday to watch the game or just TiVo it. I don't see the point in getting invovled with setting up a Shoutcast server and streaming it.

    Try this:

    For $30 a year, you can hear every game on your computer. Much less than Sunday Ticket or Sirius.

    Of course, watch it if you can, but I know I have the extra innings package and TIVO things, but there are times when you just can't be in front of the TV when it's live and you may want to know what's going on when it's happening. I kinda thought that is why he was interested in radio instead of TV, not that it was a price thing.

    I beg to differ. I think this type of activity is exactly what the folks at SlingMedia don't want to see happening. Too much of this activity and the lawsuits will fly!

    It is intended for someone who is connecting to their own home TV services, not their friend's.

    You're right. It wasn't a price thing. I ***-umed that since radios stream live content, and NFL games are broadcasted on local stations, there might be a chance at hooking up to a team I follow from across the country. These guys opened my eyes though.

    Hey, it happens in other venues, so it seemed plausible. Glenn Beck charges for access to his live audio stream from his website, but I listen to it via a radio station that broadcasts his daily programs.....

    Seemed like a good idea at the time. Apparently the NFL has more lawyers at work than Beck.

    The NFL even has more lawyers than Michael Jackson.

    These are the cleanest solutions, no doubt. But since he posted here we can assume what he really wants is to stream it to his Treo. You can do it, but it ain't cheap or simple, and you'll be walking a legal gang plank. I have not tried this yet, but it should be doable. First, you have to get the sirius receiver and subscribe to the NFL package. Secondly, you have to record the game feed to your hard drive by using TimeTrax hardware and software. This stores the recording as an MP3 (works for XM as well). From your hard drive you can set up a shoutcast server and broadcast [READ: "rebroadcast", as in what not to do per NFL's explicit warning] to your Treo with PTunes Deluxe (yet another expense). If time shifting or non-live feeds are acceptable, you can skip the Shoutcast effort and move the recorded file to an SD card.

    Of course, if you go to this trouble you'll not only be able to stream Texans' games but also music or other programming you pull from Sirius (or XM). Or you could just buy a portable satellite radio (look for some more elegant portables by next year).
