For Those of us out in Baltimore County, Carroll County, Baltimore City and beyond watching the Redskins play can be a bit of an adventure. With the regular season nearly upon us, I thought this would be a good place to share some of the creative measures Iíve come up with, and explore some of the other options out there.
Direct TV and Sunday Ticket is certainly nice if you donít mind the dish on your roof, and some of the costs and hassles associated with it. I remember a thread that discussed negotiating free Sunday Ticket with a Direct TV subscription, though I couldn't find it in search. If anyone has a link to it, let me know and I'll add it here.
Slingbox is something Iíve found to be an invaluable tool if you happen to know someone in the DC market willing to add a cable box and sacrifice a little bandwidth on your behalf.
For people like me who live on the fringe of the Washington market broadcasts, this site should give you a good idea of what you might be able to pick up over the air that your cable provider may not. WTTG-5(Fox) and WUSA-9(CBS) are what youíre looking for. If anyone has had success with a particular antenna, Iíd love to hear what youíre working with.
With some limited success, I've also watched some games streaming online. Typical problems encountered are delayed feeds, buffering issues, compatibility issues, and the occasional spyware. That said, in a pinch, it's not the worst option out there. This thread should pretty much set you straight.
I've been to a couple bars here and there that will have the game on, but I have yet to run into a redskins-centric sports bar around Bmore, so if anyone knows of any, feel free to hop in!
If there's anything I missed, or anything you'd like to add, let me know and I'll toss it up here.
