Non-Seattle Area Seahawks fans. How do you get your game?

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • While I'm here in the promised land now, I spent 20 years as a migrant wanderer, courtesy of Uncle Sam. In Spain, Afghanistan, and other exotic locales, I got them on AFN (occasionally), but other than that, I had to F5 scores on the Internet (post-Al Gore), and hear by word of mouth or highlights (pre-Al Gore). In California, I either got the games on the Internet by hook or by crook, or went out to watch the games in a bar with all those lovable Raiders and 49ers fans. Back in Maryland, aside from the occasionally nationally televised game, it was either the Internet, or going out to a bar to spend quality time with Redskins, Ravens, and Stealers fans.

    I'm so happy to be back home!

  • Parker, CO (Denver suburb)
    Been watching on NFL Sunday Ticket since moving away from Seattle in 1996. I've seen every Hawks game since.

    Like Boiler said, there's a good Seahawkers group here in Denver to watch games with. Like him, though, I'm busy with my young kids so I haven't been to the get-togethers lately. In the meantime I've been working on getting my son addicted to Seahawks football! Even took him to his first game this preseason here in Denver when Wilson cemented the starting job.

  • This is a great topic for me. The wife and I have decided to leave WA and I was wondering how others got their Hawk fix. I was hoping to get this place sold and settled wherever our new home will be before preseason.

  • In Yakima I get the 'Hawks on Fox and CBS. Except when money-grubbing Fox and
    money-grubbing DISH network do "he said, she said" for a month last fall.

    They forced me to hook up a window antennae to receive digital over the air signals
    on my bedroom TV. Man, I like the picture better than the High Definition one
    from Dish.

    As an aside, DISH offers only a college football premium package. No Sunday Ticket.
    Might be grounds for changing to Direct.

    I watch most games at home in the SeaDen on Sunday Ticket. Before I bought my current house I made sure it had a good LOS for DirecTV or I wouldn't have bought it [knowing I would have kids soon and my days of watching every game at a sports bar were ending].

    For some key games when I can sneak away I love to watch at Carlow East bar in NYC, or my favorite place - Century Link Field!

  • I lived in Arizona and Colorado for about 15 years. Always tried to avoid hearing the score just so I could watch with suspense during NFL primetime. I'd even tape the bottom of the screen to avoid seeing the ticker. That was rough.

    Now I live in Vancouver near Portland and get all the games. I don't know how I ever lived back when I only had Seahawks football on TV maybe 2 or 3 times a year.

    NFL Gamepass. It's awesome, although I think that now the Seahawks are contenders more of their games will be blacked out, meaning I'll have to avoid finding out the score for 24 hours. Hopefully it won't happen for too many games.

  • I haven't needed to go that route yet. Fingers crossed Sky TV (who hold the NFL broadcast rights here) still choose to show the games of the teams that have the biggest following here, namely all yhe teams that were good when the NFL was on free TV in the UK in the 80s: the Dolphins, Bears, Giants, 49ers...

    Usually avoid all mention of the game until the night of the game or day after and I check the Game Rewind.

    I live in Minnesota, and do this too. Luckily I work as a preschool teacher, so nobody ever talks football or spoils anything. Then I just keep the radio off on the drive home, avoid .net for the evening, beg my girlfriend not to look it up, then watch it in the middle of the night after it finally becomes available to watch.

  • I'm in Indianapolis. Have one friend with Sunday ticket but he lives an hour away so I don't always make it down there. Rest of the time it's sports bar or online when we're not in primetime.

    Thankfully the home market I'm in is an AFC team so I'd like to think that I'll just get cut in on more Seahawk broadcasts now that they're nationally relevant. We'll see.

    As Hawkspur said, sometimes the Seahawks are on Sky TV over here but rarely (I imagine as they get better we may see them more, but you'd be surprised how many times you wouldn't see Seattle, Atlanta - the less fashionable teams - over say the Eagles v Cowboys game that kicks off at 4pm eastern). Otherwise, I 'improvise'.

    I had to go the Sunday Ticket route when the whole "claiming colors" thing heated up and wearing Seahawk blue would have people looking at you a little too hard. Have been happy with it and started building my TV and box collection. I now watch at least three games at a time. It's like my very own sports bar.

    I'm brazilian, so...it's very difficult for me watch the TV games. Here, only ESPN has the NFL rights and choose any game to pass.

    my friends And I ( seahawks fans too) bought the NFL game pass and watch all the Sea games last season.

    Thanks HDMI cab! Hahaha


    Now we are planning a trip to Seattle, 2013 season :rocker:

    It's Sunday Ticket for me. I can only afford it because I get s spectacular employees only deal through my Mom's work, and she may retire soon.

    Starting about the mid-90s, I'd go to a sports bar, but only if I knew the game was on. That one, Damon's, had the ability to carry six games at once, so that usually worked out. Later I found out about another bar that carried every game, so I went there frequently but never when the Stillerz were on at the same time.

    The Damon's actually had a fellow who's job was just to coordinate game lineups, switch games when needed and run contests. He begged me to come in for the Seahawks/Stillerz game in 2003. I was literally the only Seahawks fan in the place. He felt it necessary to make an announcement to the effect of "Today in the clubhouse we have our resident Seahawks fan, osprey6. He is here at least 8 times a season and never causes trouble. If anyone starts giving him a hard time, you will have to answer to me and Marty [the built-like-a-gorilla, but generally easygoing security guy]".

    I cheered loud and long, and if looks could cripple, I would have needed a wheelchair. But I just smiled at them as we pulled out the win. He tried to get me to come back for SuperJoke XL, but there was no way I was going to watch that from a bar.

  • Lucky here for us on the other side of the State we get Fox on Dish. Someone mentioned the battle between Dish and Northwest Broadcasting(that's actually who owns the rights to Fox out west, and are the problem) That poster please remember they did the same thing to Direct TV last year just before the Super Bowl.

    So its neither cable company as much as its what's called Northwest Broadcasting that is actually a huge conglomerate based in the MIDwest, Chi-Town I believe.

    I hope we never move from here out of game area cause I have a personal bias against Direct TV and would not give them a cent even for Seahawks games.

    I think the NFL is tiring of the bs with Direct and will soon make their program available in more ways.

I've been to Cowboys Stadium twice when the Seahawks were in town and its like a library compared to the noise in the Clink. The gigantic video screen is pretty amazing though, although sometimes you have to remind yourself to watch the game on the field rather than on the screen.

  • Coming up on my 4th season in Dallas..

    1st. naughty net watching
    2nd. Ticket through the PS3
    3rd back to the net.

    was kinda dissapointed with the PS3 service, lag, crappy sound and about 30 seconds delay. Might go back to the ticket next season, but I also cook for Mom every Sunday so that kinda leaves me in a time crunch being two hrs. ahead.

    We'll see if the price is still close to 400 bucks next season, kinda hard to pay that when some EU sights put out a product that is just as good as Sony and the NFL.

    - all things chicken
    - $1.25 pints during games (variety of beers)

    ALL games except nationally televised games
    - they have my own table and big screen t.v. set up for me each week - waiting for me!! (no lie)

    usually see 4 of the biggest Giant fans there each week -and- they're a GREAT group of guys !!
    - their second favorite team is now our Seahawks
    - and we all hate ~ All things Stealers and Eagles.....it's GREAT !!!

    To me, it's better than Direct T.V.

The gigantic video screen is pretty amazing though, although sometimes you have to remind yourself to watch the game on the field rather than on the screen.



    Great first post and welcome to Seahawks.net

    Thanks for the information about the big screen, I had wondered about that. lol

  • Before I moved back to Seattle. I was living on Guam. Unless the game was on prime time, I had to watch it via illegal streams. Really shitty and choppy quality. Oh and to top it off, any game I did catch, Guam is 18 hours ahead of PST. So having to skip work in the middle of the day on a Monday was always nerve racking.
