    Well technically the NFL did offer semi webcasts for the NFL Network games last year. Sure it was delayed clips and what not but it was better than nothing for those who didn't have the network.

    Once the broadcast quality issues are ironed out, I would hope that all the major sports would be available in this format. I know that I would be willing to pay a "Sunday Ticket" level price for a similar online product, complete with the NFLN and all that that package entails. HD sports streaming to my PC seems so close, yet so far.

    Pretty soon (year or two or three) I'm guessing they'll offer the equivilent of the DirectTV Sunday Ticket on a webcast basis.

    Europe had the Yahoo Gamecast option for a couple years now if you wanted live (or even archived) streaming games. The problem was you couldn't get it in the US and there was no playoffs.

    It's pretty sad that the NFL isn't able to stream all its games when the MLB, NHL, and NBA can and have far more.

    I think it would be wicked cool if they had a console where you could have a few options:

    4 small (thumbnail sized) feeds of the game from all different cameras. You can pick which camera you would like to watch the game from, or the network feed.

    2-3 audio feeds of the game to pick from: Broadcast feed, radio feed, and crowd-only feed.

    Then you can pretty much make your own broadcast. I doubt it would ever happen, but it would be awsome!

    NFL.com & NBC.com announce the streaming of all Sunday Night games on thier websites!

    Great to hear all Sunday Night games will be on the web on NBC and NFL's websites :singing:,although I could use this great news without the SB stuff they mention in the article :mad:.

    Damn, this would be real nice. And from the sounds of it, it might even be free to consumers, IE paid by ad dollars. Sign me up!
