    I know we were all getting messages that are isp's were not supported by ESPN broadband. I e-mailed them and this was their response



    ESPN Broadband - a high-speed, video content offering that delivers
    on-demand video to broadband subscribers -- will offer users free,
    live,
    exclusive coverage of all four games through a free preview weekend
    that
    will be open to users whose internet service providers currently do not
    have contracts with us.

    I hope you're right, they wrote me and told me that their "lookup" service was only to see who offers cable internet in my area, and that my company isn't a partner. Um, thanks, I already knew who offered cable internet in my area. :shakehead

    If they're opening up those games to everyone, that's awesome. I'll just have to try it when the games are on, see what happens.

    Who really needs it anymore? In 2 days you guys can finally watch the WC on a crisp, TV screen rather than on a blurry monitor. Here in the Great White North we only have to wait until tonight.:D

    This is for the games next weekend which aren't being shown on ESPN, so I'd say we DO need it.
