Outside the US you can get gamepass HD which allows you to watch nearly every game live. It costs more but allows you to play up to four games at once, if you have access to three extra monitors as well as access to the archived games.

I'm unclear on one point out of that last sentence. Are you saying GamePass HD will allow me to watch any and all NFL games at any time from the archives, (so from Tuesday onward I could watch the entire previous weekend's games) and up to four live? How long does the archive go back?

I should probably go read up on it myself, actually, but it sounds like you've either used it or know somebody who has.

Edit: Never mind, I found the information. This one's half price - $119.99 for that level of access is borderline theft. That's incredible.

How in the world have I never heard of this little gem.

It's fantastically awesome, and it actually has all of last year's games as well as this year. I wish I hadn't ponied up the full $50 for it, but then again, it's a tax deduction.

As a reminder to the poster of a deleted comment, posting links to torrent or P2P sites is not going to earn you many plaudits.

Not that I speak from experience, but I'm very willing to pay $25 bucks and not have to worry about share ratios.

I did not post links to torrent or P2P sites, yet my comments were censored as well. For future reference, why were my comments censored?

A. Linking to wikipedia
B. Talking about free culture
C. Other

I have been a huge FO fan for years and have told lots of people about your site. I have also purchased products in your store. I have been one of your biggest fans and advocates for a long time. Why am I being censored?

Football Outsiders' forums are not the place for a discussion of the merits of P2P technology.

Dude, I've had a couple comments deleted too, it's not like you're being singled out. (mostly crude or inappropriate jokes).

I got it in the preseason for $40 and it's really nice for fans like me who live out of the area of their team. So while watching the Bucs games are certainly miserable, it's very nice to be able to go back and watch the Cowboys afterwords. I work a lot on Sundays too, so generally I have to rely on Twitter updates to follow the game. Then on Monday I watch what happened. Better than nothing by a good margin! I wish that they would put them up before 12, because sometimes I get home and want to watch the game Sunday night, but alas I am stuck watching whatever happens to be on SNF.

I got it in the preseason as well and was disappointed to find out that you can't watch it while other games are going on. So no watching Sunday's games on Monday night. It's really fantastic aside from that inconvenience.

I am now glad I procrastinated on getting this.

Is that midnight EST, or are they able to figure midnight local time? If it's midnight EST, then that's pretty sweet for those of us on the west coast =D

I got this in the preseason for $40, and it's phenomenal. I need it since I do charting, but I'd probably get it anyway just to re-watch the Jets games up here in New England.

I am using Firefox v 3.0.8 and I can't get the plugin to play anything. Anyone else have this problem?

I've been using Rewind to watch middling teams to see whether they are good teams with some tough losses or if they are just bad. This week I've been watching Miami vs. NO in 15-minute chunks every morning as I empty the dishwasher and make coffee (I knew there was a reason I put a PC in the kitchen!) [IMHO, the Miami's a good team with more losses than their ability would predict]

The quality is pretty good, but I would say it is a step below ideal. I see a lot of compression artifacts and jumps often take 3 seconds for detail to fill in.

With most everything stripped out (including an occasional play--one of the games apparently started the 3rd quarter without a kickoff--you would have thought the refs would have caught that :-), the games are all close to 2 hours.

You still get some in-game updates and the scores of other games will show, so you can't avoid spoilers.

I don't have cable, so if I want to watch MNF, I get it on the Rewind. Unfortunately, the one Monday night game I was interested in took 48 hours to show up (or it wasn't there Wednesday AM)... It was annoying.

Overall I feel I got my $40, especially since I'm not manually skipping commercials.
