    Strange question from a Rhode Islander living in Hong Kong, but bear with me: is this week's game showing on a standard channel on Direct TV in Montreal? If so, on which channel?

    Thanks.

    Thanks, but I'm not going to physically be in Montreal; I'm still going to be here in HK. Long story short is that my Slingbox crapped out so I'm going to be watching through my boss's slingbox, which is connected to Direct TV in Montreal.

    I've watched basketball and "soccer" successfully before.

    It's a great last resort. You have to give it time to get the buffering done, but then it's usually right as rain.

    I live in Montreal...but I get every Patriots games on CBS Burlington (or FOX Burlington when it applies). We need cable or dish to get these channels.

    Thanks. So you're not sure about CBS (east) from DirecTV?

    No idea, Patjew, but this Canadian site has something about TV coverage.

    I'm confident STH gave you a winning answer.

    But if you need some network flagship ... remember that this is CBS' national game ... with the first team announcers.

    I'm not on Dish network, but on Bell Expressvu the channel is 282. You could check here for something about Dish:

    This is my first post on this site for something like 5 years.

    I've became a lurker on all messaboards. Still, I registered just to say hi to the people from Mtl and Quebec City.

    Patjew, Mtl has CBS Plattsburgh. Their default team is the Patriots. As long as you have regular cable package from Mtl, you will be able to watch the game.
