Saw a couple of people ask about this, so as an international Michigan fan I'm always streaming the games, especially on the go. I would recommend the following sites for fans who are either traveling or living abroad (these streams apply to Michigan Football and Basketball):
1- if on ABC or ESPN : ESPNPLAYER.com - PAID service where u can just subscribe for one game or week if u want
2- if on BTN : http://international.btn2go.com - PAID service same as espnplayer
4- If you have a cable subscription in the US, e.g. Comcast, you get online access to thier feeds, now usually those work only from US based IPs so you will have to do an IT work around for those to work internationally.
Now your other issue is internet speed, if hotel or apartment internet is good enough then just use that, otherwise i recommend you buy a dongle and sim for your laptop (from any mobile provider), or just buy a 4G data sim for your ipad or smartphone and download the app of espnplayer or btn2go (note I usually have issues with accessing free streams on mobile browsers!)
The only games I ever have a problem viewing are those on Fox TV and that was only this season with the UTAH game!
On the other hand when it is a game at Notre Dame (which won't happen anytime soon) those are provided as a free stream on NBCsports.com
Hope this helps..
I have been with Comcast for a long time with a very minimal plan. I'm looking to upgrade plans since Michigan Football with be on the BTNs and FS1s and such. Comcast does not offer low level plans to get sports packages and my wife is an avid HGTV watcher (which we don't have, because it requires the premium plan).
My question for you all is:
What TV provider do you have and are you happy with them?
(I'm thinking of switching to DISH to take advantage of their $49.99 two year plan)
My concerns with satellite are:
-Bad service during storms
-Crazy install and hidden fees
-Need to still use Comcast for Internet (no bundle plan)
PSA: If you have Directv and live in Indiana, check to make sure you still have NBC. Due to a dispute between the NBC provider and Directv, NBC is not available for viewing to some of us lucky fans who want to see the game on Saturday or watch shows on a network that hasn't been relevant since Friends.
Maybe I've been living with my head up my ass, but I had no idea about this until the TV ratings thread earlier today and I figured that it deserved its own thread.
The easiest way to get around this is to buy a cheap HD antenna and use it for Saturday. I found one pretty cheap on Amazon for only $10.
Good luck and may the corn be with you.

So all across my twitter feed today there have been pictures of one quite iconic call from 25 years ago on this date:
Shot on Ehlo.... GOOOOOOOOOD!!!!
If you didn't picture Jordan's jump and fistpump, you haven't been paying attention. What other calls stand out to you in the last 25 years? Any Michigan related? One that sticks in my brain is "GALLON, they left him alone!" It always amazes me how hearing radio and/or TV calls can bring one back to exactly where they were the moment they heard it.
I didn't see this posted on the board yet but per MGoBlue.com, the Iowa game will be a 12 pm kickoff with coverage on ESPN/ESPN2. Let the complaining about noon starts begin!
