    Ok, I am pretty much doomed since I have Dish network. This Fox dispute can go either way. I remember watching games off of SOPCAST in the past.

    Does anyone know if this is still possible? If not, please let us DISH customers know of any other online streaming (good quality) avenues that we can use for watching Rockets games live throughout the season.

    Any in HD? Thanks!

    You won't need to download software like you would for Sopcast

    like other said atdhe.net

    but its not HD quality, if you want HD quality, LP broadband is the choice, but if you live in Houston then I think

    I found a new tool on one of the download sites I frequent... it has all the different viewers in one application.

    It's called Readon TV/Movie/Radio Player ... you should be able to do a search for it. As far as I can tell it has no adware or malware attached to it.

    atdhe.net
    ilemi.com
    channelsurfing.net

    are the 3 I routinely use. They occasionally have an HQ link, but it is not often.

    This is interesting. So you are able to get FS Houston feeds on this consistently?

    How's the quality?

    Okay, I'll be sure to try these out during the season. I know some websites will limit online streaming to a certain region.

    Veetle is great but they don't show many games. Readon TV (as Hayesfan said) is one of the best out there. Try Myp2p.eu too.

    Lemme say, nothing beats League Pass Broadband. I think for US citizens it's 108$ still waiting for price for International League Pass... About blackouts i think someone mentioned they blackout by billing address not by IP. Have a friend from other city buy buy you the account, you just wire 'em the money.

    Depends on your provider. I believe Dish, Direct Tv, and AT&T are all 139 before November 3rd. I have Time Warner and they are charging 169 I believe. Just make sure you purchase it before then or it goes up even more. It just sucks that they can charge that much but wont even let you see a months worth of preseason games. Pretty ticked about that one.

    What do you mean you are doomed for having Dish, is Dish not having the Rockets' games this season

    Well, I called them a couple of times in the past week (including last night), and they always give me the same shpeal.......

    "We are currently still trying to work out a solution with Fox....."

    "We do not want Fox to raise prices and charge our customers more...."

    Blah blah.....I am locked in for another 20 months so as much as I love the Rockets, my financial constraint due to the impending penalties for breaching early is very real to me. I have no choice but to assume the worst case scenario and explore online streaming options.

    I don't think Dish will work it out in the end. Just my opinion of course.

    There is a chance that if you live around Houston, NBA league pass will blackout rockets games. I hope not.

    How is the quality of league pass? It doesn't seem like that bad of a deal right now.
