Lots of sports streaming live this weekend. From tennis to hockey and NFL playoffs, it’s all online.
NHL on CBC.
I was going to avoid the NHL as my own way of protesting the league’s lock-out. It lasted 20 minutes. The reason is that CBC is streaming all three opening games live. Winnipeg and Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal and the Canucks and Ducks in the night-cap. And with more games each week, Saturday night hockey is too good to resist.
Sunday morning update: Three minutes to go in the Leafs game, and the CBC stream froze. By the time I reloaded the page on my Sony Google TV twice (and was forced to watch to same commercial twice each time), the game was over. Arrgh, Leafs won, but such is the hazard of being on the freezing edge of TV.
Live over on TSN. You can pick your match and imagine you were someplace warmer.
Sunday’s games are streaming live on TSN – Atlanta and San Fran at 3 and Baltimore and New England later. I watched last week and while it took 5 minutes and two missed touchdowns to get things going, I enjoyed the Baltimore/Denver game – one of the most exciting games I’ve seen in a long time. The broadcasts were, for the most part, clear. The picture occasionally dropped out of HD or minimized itself. But there I was watching two great football games on my Google TV…. and I thought sports was going to be a problem when I cut the cable.
Let me know if you have other live sporting events on your watch list.
