FINALLY!  I was wondering why the Slingbox wasn't mentioned...  I use one with my d* dvr and it works great.  stream to my phone when I am travelling...  watch it on a browser when I am in front of a computer.

Try the Univision and Univision Deportes apps.  It's not clear if you have to authenticate, but if you don't it could be a decent solution for video (and Spanish audio).

Update, you will have to authenticate but I just confirmed that the iOS app for Univision Deportes will work for Directv subs. I was able to log in.  It'll have all the games with Spanish audio but there is an option for English text for navigating within the app.

Authentication may not be necessary for Univision until July 4th.

Via the Univision Deportes App, the first two rounds of World Cup action will be available free for anyone to watch. Starting July 4 with the quarterfinals through the July 13 final, users must log in using credentials from their pay-TV provider. ESPN’s live-streaming of the 64 World Cup matches online and on mobile will also require subs to authenticate their pay-TV subscription.

Since 1995 the average cable bill has increased 122%, while TV consumption per household just 13%.

The ABC games including the final will be on ESPN3. If you aren't stuck with an ISP that blocks ESPN3 without a television subscription (Time Warner/Brighthouse), you should have access to them. I'm not sure about Optimum, since I've seen conflicting reports on them blocking ESPN3, but if you subscribe to their basic locals package you'll get access to the ABC games via WatchABC unless you are in one of their Hartford/New Haven DMA systems where WTNH is the local ABC affiliate.

Also, if you don't intend to watch the games and were planning to have them on as background noise during work, ESPN Radio will be streaming all the games online which you can access with their app, TuneIn or over the air on your ESPN Radio affiliate.

I can confirm that Optimum blocks ESPN3 to internet only subscribers


Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.
