For anyone who has a IPTV capable STB, does your receiver get the ESPN3 feeds? I haven't moved up to a IPTV receiver yet and wondered if they can play these feeds. There will a couple of ESPN3 feeds of the alabama-clemson game tonight, just wondering if anyone gets those?
thanks

Hi cpsp0,

I would bet that there are several sources that will be streaming the feeds.  Just not sure which of them would be what we would call "Legal Streams".  Since the content will be copyrighted by ESPN, then I would not expect their "Official ESPN" streams to be free and you would not get access to them without having a subscription to ESPN.

Now if there is a stream to be found from ESPN that was not encrypted and we had the link, then I would think that we would not be infringing on anyone by using the link / stream, as long as used for private viewing.

But when someone else re-streams the copyrighted stream, I believe that then that would call it illegal.

So while IPTV links can be added to receivers and then you can connect to them and view them, the question will still be where is the link coming from.  Seems that someone somewhere is re-streaming almost anything and everything, if it is legal or not.

Maybe someone with more knowledge can add to this.  I do not endorse or encourage anyone to do what is called Illegal.  The Law ends up siding with the programmers most of the time.

Thanks,

Rick

I wonder about that but would it have something to do with the ISP?..I can stream it here with my new ISP but not with previous Time Warner Cable.

Hi Rick...ESPN 3 is 100% legal and free depending upon your ISP.

Thanks, what I was thinking about is the "Skycam" feed ESPN3 lists. ESPN3 is available for streaming from their website on PC and tablet without a subscription to ESPN. ESPN3 is the "free" streaming service from ESPN. Go to watchESPN and check it out. I was wondering if any of the IPTV receivers out there can stream these free streams on the watchESPN website. Hope I cleared up what I was asking. I would never ask about illegal feeds.

cpsp0,

I did not think you were asking for anything illegal.  I was just afraid of the comments that might follow.  I did not know that those streams were offered for free.  That is great.  Just need to find out what the links are and then try putting them in a receiver.

Thanks,

Rick

I watch ESPN3 with the Wetek a good bit
But for it to work I had to submit my Dishnet subscriber info, or/to prove that Dish is my provider
It's great except about half the time when it goes to a commercial break it won't come back, it sort of freezes up
So I have to back out and start over, other than that I like it very much

EDIT:
You can also watch NBCSportsNetwork
You also have to submit proof of provider for it to work

Thanks for the replies, I guess I will just stay with an HDMI cord from my laptop to the TV. I can watch ESPN3 on my pc without having a subscription to any dish, directv or cable provider. If you click on a ESPN3 feed, not a ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU feed on Watch ESPN, it just plays without asking for your provider.

I believe that ESPN3 is free in one of two ways.

1. You have a tv provider and have ESPN on it. Then you just login through that providers site and it will play free of charge as part of ESPN.

2. Your ISP provider has a deal with ESPN3. In that case many times there is no login required. 

In my case both are true. I have DN and have ESPN as part of my package.
I also have DSL from Frontier and they have/had as part of their internet service offerings ESPN3 for free.

There may be another way or not but those are the two that I am aware of.

That would be because your internet service provider or phone company is paying ESPN to allow their users access to ESPN3. In my case Windstream dropped their contract with ESPN several years ago and I can not access ESPN3. You probably knew that though.

OOps! mountaineer beat me to it.

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
