Espn player (european version of watchespn) is a pay service and usually has all games except the CBS games. The feed is ok - better than first row sports- and they have an ipad app.

Best way is to have a slingbox set up in the US. If that is an option, I would invest in the slingbox (get a hd version) and you will be able to see all you can when in the US.

Things like the CBS sports app are, I believe, subject to geographical restrictions based on your IP address.

There is no longer an ESPN channel on TV in Europe that shows college football. In the uk, there is an espn channel provided by BT (British telecom) and I think that is showing the TCU game. Further games are not guaranteed.

In short - it is a fragmented mess at the moment. slingbox is best if possible, if not, go with the ESPN player and hope you get to watch most of them. First Row is a last resort in my experience.

WiziWig (doubtful on the HD though). BTW, you should be able to get the ESPN college football package on your cpu in Italy.

In that case yes, invest in a slingbox. It will cost more upfront but you will have it for multiple seasons if you needed it and you could always sell it on.

This is what I do. I'm in Germany now and will have to be here again during the LSU-UGA game. I stream to my Android tablet and it works great unless the wifi in the hotel is not fast enough or the bandwidth is being sucked up. You need to have at least 3MB/S upload speed at home to insure it can transfer HD. It's a good investment if you travel overseas a lot.

I use an HD Slingbox and it works very well. Have a Directv DVR hooked up so I can record and watch whenever. Sports1 US HD took over where ESPN America dropped off. It is offered in Switzerland and the schedule says that it will be showing NFL and NCAA football. The other option is to buy a US VPN and try to stream ESPN Player on the iPad. I haven't needed to go this route yet, so I can't tell you how it works.

Where in Italy are you?

What? Your local pub doesn't have Geauxzone? They need to get on their game.

Also in Prague, you don't happen to own a pub and will be using the slingbox in a public setting, do you?
