Chargers vs. Falcons Being Streamed Live on Web via Pirate Sites

Despite NFL and government efforts, blacked out football games can be viewed on the Web.

Local TV has blacked out the Chargers-Falcons game Sunday afternoon, but resourceful fans with a Web-enabled TV can watch the game for free on their big-screen sets.

According to U-T San Diego, sites based overseas—including the Polynesian island of Tuvalu and in the Central American nation of Belize—are streaming the game live.

U-T San Diego listed these sites as having the game: 

The newspaper also said:

Policing thousands—maybe tens of thousands—of fans watching a pirated feed in the privacy of their own home, of course, is an entirely different animal (and you'll get a spirited debate from lawyers whether it's even illegal). Many laptops now have HDMI ports, making it easy to run a single cable from their computer to their 55-inch flat screen. The reliability and resolution has improved over the years, too; it’s generally not high-definition, but it’s not the freezing, grainy images of the past.

One comment posted on the U-T story said: “Firstrow is a good 1 online & go to channel 10 they got a link to a few good one to see the game sunday.” A link on that site is airing the game but may required a plug-in.

The Chargers website, meanwhile, offers live updates in blog form.

Otherwise, the game can be heard on radio, with the team listing 18 stations carrying the broadcast.

All real football fans know of these feeds on the web. Why bring attention to them because the "Dolts" are not on television????

Here's the kicker, I was looking for a feed for the game on Sunday and went to justintv, the Chargers were advertising single game tickets for sell in a huge banner featured on the web page. I had to lol on that one.

I used the top one and of the 5 sites listed for the Charger game found one that work great. One that worked ok and the others that were filled with adds you couldn't get rid of.
