Exclamation HELP. Lost In Translation - no ESPN in Tokyo!

Hi Guys,

I'm in a hotel room here in Tokyo, and there's no ESPN. I called around but all the ex-pat sports bars here mistake 'football' for soccer or rugby. some do show NFL sundays live, but not MNF (its on at 8am here)

does anyone know how I can stream the game (close to) live? Just to make it harder, i'm on a Mac.

Would really appreciate any miracle-workers here, anybody?

You can listen online. I think there's also something called streamtvnow.com or something like that. Which I've heard actually works

My suggestion: Get out of Tokyo as fast as you can, and book a flight for the U.S. pronto!

I sent an email out to some of my colleagues with ESPN International to see if they can help you out.

Looks like you'll be able to see the Titans vs. Redskins later this year!

Our ESPN affiliate in Japan does not have NFL rights

You could try and use PPlive or some other P2P streaming programs. Tried it with the World Cup when i was stuck at work, with little success though. Also check the bitorrent sites after the game, maybe someone will post it as a torrent file.

This is a tragedy. I think you should just head over to Soapland to get your mind off of things.
