Ok so here's the problem. I live in the states (not cool.) and theres no way i could be at the game so i have to settle for watching the game on a tv (even more not cool). then i find out, feckin MHz Networks (who is carrying the game in the states) isn't even being offered in MY state. So now i'm trying to find the game online and it turns out, only you lucky lads back in ireland can watch it. Huge downer. Anyways, how on God's green earth can i watch this game over here?
buy access to an irish vpn and watch it online. search irish vpn on google.
Not lookin' to be payin' for this haha
I was in the same position as you and it basically comes down to how much anxiety you want to put yourself through. You can never be sure about free online steams until the match starts and even then if you find one prepare for it to be slow, delayed and of a very poor quality (I missed the 1st half of the Munster semi because of that).
In the end just save yourself the hassle and spend the money. It'll cost you a tenner to stream the game legally on the Setanta international website, or do what I did and get an Irish VPN, which will last you a month so you get access to the entire RTE player for 30 days with it. The quality is excellent as well.
Anyone recommend a good VPN to use - I've tried Overplay but found the speed to be pretty poor. Tried to watch the KK Cork match online and it was very stop start.
You're in Boston ya?
Will it not be shown in most of the Irish bars? (assuming you're 21 of course...)
Another option would be to watch it at a GAA club in Boston, I was in Chicago a few years back and there was always lots of families watching the games at the clubhouse.....
I'm fairly sure you can stream them on the RTE website, watched the Kerry-Antrim game live there last year and the quality was reasonable enough. If not just go to an Irish pub
It's geo-blocked outside Ireland.
You may find a stream here tomorrow but it's fairly hit and miss.
Because your free options are so reliable and plentiful you had to ask us all for advice? An Irish VPN is the way to go if you want to watch it in the comfort of your own home and there are no reliable ways around that besides stumping up a few bucks for it. Deal with it!
By far the best thing to do if you are in Boston is to go to any of the Irish bars, who will be all showing it. The Banshee on Dorchester Ave would be a good shout, Canton if you are outside Boston and fancy watching a few local games while your out there.
None of the clubs in Boston have their own clubhouses unfortunately. They have their local bars who sponser them which basically become the clubhouses!
You can listen to it (not so much fun) on the GAA media player www.rte.ie/sport/gaa/championship/aif_radio.html
I watched it free last year from a facebook link, am trying to get one for this year. Worked fine, was a bit laggy in spots but nothing too bad. Will keep you posted if I get anywhere.
