    Does anyone know how I could watch the Pats' games, overseas?

    There was talk of NFL to stream games to overseas fans with Yahoo, a while back.
    Is that a real option, now?

    Or is there a web-site that offers the games online, for overseas fans, and charges for it?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Yep, you can stream games online via Yahoo as you said. There are a couple of caveats- currently (in the UK at least) it only applies to regular season games and any game shown on TV in that country gets streamed later.

    It's a pretty reliable service, although any game that is "blacked out" doesn't get shown until about 3 hours later.

    If you will be in Europe.
    On Sky tv they show 6 games over the w'end.
    You have a choice of 2 early and 2 late afternoon games, plus the Sun and Mon night games. It will cost you £40/month subscription for this service.


    On ordinary tv, Channel 5, they show the Sun and Mon night games live. I'm not sure whether it will continue because there was talk of them scrapping it.
    It's a shame because it was a brilliant show with one of best analysts I've listened to, Mike Carlson, a Pats fan and friend of BB. I think they were at college together.
    There is a big Pats following in Europe and Sky usually pick up the best games of the week, which means you would get maybe 3/4 of games.
    If they aren't on, I can usually pick up a live stream on my laptop.

    This works well for me in Asia if I'm in an area with decent internet speed.

    If you're in the UK we get two early games (6pm) and two late games (9pm), plus SNF, MNF and any special occasions on SKY TV every week.

    The other option is Gamepass, which like you mentioned is run through Yahoo. You can watch every game if you wish, but any games that are shown live on Sky are blacked out by Yahoo.

    NFL Game Pass HD is great, other than the fact it's got about a 5 minute delay.

    You're welcome. I have personally had no problems with Game Pass, so am happy to recommend it.

    In the UK sky is currently the only way to view NFL on TV as channel 5 ended all american sports at the end of all current seasons. there is game pass and p2p streaming available. p2p sites will work anywhere in the world

    Actually, I am going to be in Turkey and I am not sure if they offer sky tv, but I will look into that. Thanks.

    Sky Sports 2 is what you want, but I don't think they have it in Turkey. Your best bet is watching the games online, either through Yahoo Gamecast (which doesn't show the playoffs) or through that myp2p.eu site, which has links to places that stream the games (though it won't work through some firewalls) either embedded into websites or through programs like TVU and Sopcast. Both work. Yahoo's picture quality tends to be better, but it's not free.

    I was in Dublin for a year and managed to catch every Patriots game via the Yahoo thing (I couldn't use streaming video through my firewall) and Sky Sports 2 at various bars.

    I would be truly shocked if you couldn't get Sky Sports in Turkey!
    First of all, it is a must for all the thousands of Brit tourists who go their summer holidays there. It comes as part of the 'must have' package which also includes air conditioning in their hotel rooms!
    Secondly, although a muslim country, it is very European minded, and the people there love sport, especially soccer!

    Thanks CD.
    What you say does make sense, with the high number of Brits in Turkey, especially in the summer. I will look into that, and as to the links, the first one starts off with Besiktas, the Black Eagles of Istanbul, my favorite team, as I am a Turkish-American and own a home, there, in Kusadasi.
