Watch NFL Sunday Night Football On Your PC

If you are a fan of the NFL it can be annoying when you’re away from a TV and you want to catch a game on Sunday night. Today we take a look at the neat setup NBC provides to watch the game on their website.

One of the unique features is the several extra camera angles you can watch. You will be able to view these while they are at a commercial break as well.

2-cams

You can pause, play and navigate through the action DVR style.

3-control

The video is actually very crisp and you can adjust it based on the type of broadband connection you have.

 5-sidecam

There is a bandwidth meter in the left hand corner where you can determine the connection and video quality.

When there is a problem with the video it stops and you have to wait for a while, so this might not be the perfect way to watch games where you’re hanging on every play.

7-error

Another neat feature is checking out team and player stats over on the left side.

One of the neat things about watching it online is there are less commercials to deal with. Also when there is a commercial you can still see the field action in the different cam views.

If you can’t get to the game because you are at work or for some reason don’t get NBC (like yours truly)…watching the Sunday night games online is a lot of fun. Even if you have the game at home on your HDTV, there are still cool features that will let you keep up with the game online too.

    You titled this “…on your PC”; shouldn’t Mac owners be able to see this as well with a compatible browser, or has the Microsoft-NBC liaison created a site that only Windows IE users can see?

    Nope, it works fine on a Mac.

    I’ve not tested it on a Linux machine, however.

    @Paris, although PC has generally been the moniker of windows based computers, it originally stood for Personal Computer which in definition is an Apple, Windows, or Linux based computer.

    That said, I would agree there should be some distinction for and observation of which operating system this works with. I want me some football!!!!!!!!!

    Now if only I could get Monday Night Football too…

    Any ideas if it works outside of the US? I know our EPL coverage here is a nightmare to get outside of the country so I’m assuming similar licensing issues on your side of the pond could come into effect…

    Do they have options that allow you to remeove Phil Simms and Keith Olberman from the broadcast? If so, that would make this just about perfect!
