    I am going to be in India for the Pats / Texans game and I am wondering if anyone has advise on how to get the game live on an iPad. Any advise is appreciated.

    I may be wrong, but I don't believe NFL Gamepass includes live video access to games. It has on demand replays.

    I've been overseas and out of town a number of times during Pats games. Aside from illegal streaming services, the best and easiest legal way is to buy a Slingbox ($100+) and hook it up to your cable box and the internet. Then, from anywhere in the world from a browser and an good internet connection, you can log into your own cable box and watch the game live. Works great -- I've done it many times.

    My subscription renews every year and I haven't run into that issue. I can watch whatever game I want live or on replay. It's a must buy for international fans IMO.

    Yep, me too. Game Pass is the best for me. Live games, on demand replays, coaches film, etc. If you're only looking at one game however, I'd wait before purchasing it until you get to India. Sometimes they show NFL games on certain channels in Asia like ASN (ASN: All Sports Networks) but I believe ASN is not usually in the "basic" cable package though.

    Yes you are (wrong).;)

    Gamepass has both. I have to admit that I swallowed hard and waited through 1 game of pre-season to buy due to price; but don't regret it now.

    I have live access to the game (although I now prefer to watch about 20-30m delayed so i can zip through commercials and halftime & also put my daughter to bed when is a 1pm EST (7pm me) start) or replay at any time.
    I usually watch on my home wifi and despite the not so fast connection I have it never hangs when it is on play. Just the 10sec FF button annoys me to heck. I wish there was a 30s button (commercial length) and that it would react a little faster; I sometimes waste 8secs of pause time to jump forward 10s.

    you also get the all-22 (by Wed) and a condensed version of the game (around next day after game) as well as able to watch all the nfl shows (redzone, analysis, etc) live or delayed on-line as well.

    all in all is good deal and worth it if you are overseas. I think there are different eligibilty & access rules stateside and overseas though. You may have to check that out - not sure if they enforce that by the IP of how you log in or using your billing address. So for someone who wants to use sometimes in USA and sometimes overseas - I dont know how that works. Maybe someone else has used in both environments and can advise.

    There are ways, but none I'd mention on a message board.

    If you want to stay legal, buy one week of NFL gamepass. Or you could check out local tv Stations, there might be a decent chance of of some sky network showing MNF which might be receivaqble in your hotel room for free.

    No Jersey Selected

    Gamespass it is. Except for it crapping out in the past drive of the bills home game.

    Disable Jersey

    Gamepass is the way to go. Though it can be clunky, it's way better than an illegal stream. Not to be confused with Game Rewind (in the U.S.). A question: have there been difficulties using it on an iPad?

    A friend of mine is watching all Packers games (and RedZoneTV when they're not playing) on his IPad without problems. He's living in Turkey, but that shouldn't matter to you since you asked for technical difficulties.

    OP was a bit ambiguous, but why buy Gamepass if he's only going to be in India for one game?

    If you want some advice on other means of watching the game, PM me. Would post them but can't be getting Ian in trouble.

    The ridiculous part is that the source I would suggest also includes commercials just like you would see on TV so I have no idea why there would be an issue with it but we don't make up the laws, I guess. The TV and Movie lobbies do.

    Thanks for the advice.

    How much does Game Pass cost? Can you buy just one game?

    I dunno about the US, but with Sunday Ticket here in Canada, you can stream the games live on an iPAD
