I had Directv until I moved into my current house where I can't get it. Last year I had directv installed at a friends house and just paid for it, then after the season I gave directv my address and they confirmed there is no line of site again at my house = no cancellation fee. I payed for the minimum package (about $30 a month) and NFL Sunday ticket was free. I was able to watch every Cowboys game last year. Might be an option to look into.
Not sure if it works entirely as I am new to it but quite a few people seem to use playon to watch sports on their tv.
Just google playon and then check out playon scripts as well.edit:I added links
You need to have a game console or roku to play the content on your tv, but sports seems to be a big reason why people use playon. http://www.playon.tv/playon/ http://www.playonscripts.com/
Just an idea.
