I'm sure I won't be the only one stuck at work when this one tips, so does anyone have a link for a live stream of the game?
FWIW. Michigan doesn't seem inclined to get re-involved.
Both are blocked by work security. Any other suggestions?
As they should be. Those sites are full of malware.
They're also full of free streams for people who have adblock.
Hide in the bathroom with your phone for two hours?
Wish I could upvote this!
trust me on this. very high quality!
download VLC Player. I will post link before tipoff for workaround with BTN. This is posted at wiziwig.com's ncaa forums. It works fantastic! I'll post close to 2:30 with the working link. Kills all other streams.
Here it is:
Just open up VLC player > Media > Open Network Stream > Paste > Voila!
The stream is actually extremely good quality (Not HD, but not crappy internet stream either). This is also a 24/7 stream, so its around the clock working
Rock and Roll.
Does this work on Mac? I clicked the link, which gave me a download that opened in itunes...and...nothing. Please help a non-tech fella
Rather than clicking the link, "right click" on it and copy the link address, and then follow the instructions above to paste it in to the 'Open Network Stream' box on VLC.
If you don't have VLC player already on your Mac, you can download it here.
I actually shook off the dumb just before you posted this and realized that I had to download the VLC player first. For some reason, it took a few tries of pasting the link before it worked, but it's working now. Very happy.
Note to anyone meeting with me this afternoon - I'm totally paying attention to you.
That is amazing! Is this a one-time only link or will it work tomorrow/next week/football season?
Thanks, this worked. How do you find these URLs for other games?
Thanks! Worked like a charm.
2nd half tips off right as I leave the office. Game will end right after I get home.
Technically, there is not tipoff in the second half, but I get your point. I may sneak out to a sports bar this afternoon...
LOL, I thought of that after I posted. I went to change but "2nd half inbound" sounded weird. Even know it's correct.
Firstrowsports.eu is always the answer to this question. Protip: download Adblock first.
But I also really like rojadirecta.me
Pros: It gives you the stream's bitrate, language and format (including the BTN stream posted ^)
Cons: Most streams are not in english, you quickly discover how many different kinds of spam/ads there are out there.
I just wish I at least had a radio on my desk. I leave right work at 4:30, so maybe I can catch the last minute in my car.
As a legit site, most networks don't block it (unless you work for the devil and your network blocks all sports). BTN2Go seems to have a decent amount of listed providers.
For some reason, Comcast (Xfinity...yeah, we still know you're the same, shitty Comcast) is not a listed provider. Aren't they the biggest cable company in the state??? Hey BTN, lean on those bitches.
You can get the live stream for BTN from comcast, though. http://xfinitytv.comcast.net/live/network/big10network
An Xfinity login...
If you have UM system access and are looking for a "legal" stream/safer site, you can access it here: http://iptv.umnet.umich.edu/
This is what I will be watching during work on campus today.
Too bad I won't be at work watching with you. Damn, gotta watch it on my 55" instead
Damnit, it wants me to install Silverlight and U-M in all its wisdom doesn't give me access to install anything on my machine. SIGH
shall be no need to stream this game. Just look at the final score and let out an evil laugh.
Now Tommorow on the other hand, take a half day and get your ass to a TV.
My boss moved a project meeting that was scheduled from 3-4 to 1-2.
Hopefully the meeting doesn't go long.
I had a meeting moved from 1-2 to 3:30 - 4:30. Ergo, I can't even follow the 2nd half from my desk!
On the plus side, if we win today, I will be taking off early tomorrow to make it home in time for the game.
Someone will post they're btn link closer to game time, or any direct link. I dont see getting out of work early...
as someone else posted above:
It's that easy.
Will the radio broadcast be on mgoblue?
It hadn't occured to me to live stream the game. So...my day just turned awesome.
if you buy a slingbox, wou can control your remote for your tv from the web and watch whatever you want
works for me, but I am home now
Everything is blocked on my work computer. Even the VLC workaround :(
