Where ever I end up in retirement, I must be able to watch my New England Patriots.
Well, that may put a real limitation on where you end up, fish or no fish!
Having said that, it is my understanding (from Wikipedia) that there is a 'service' called NFL Sunday Ticket (available in the US only from DirectTV) that broadcasts NFL games otherwise unavailable to a particular customer (someone wanting to watch the New England Patriots play but who lives in ?). I see also that it is available in Mexico via Sky TV.
Also, while Slingbox could be an option, it would take a pretty fat budget to provide 1) a TV subscription, cable or Sat. from which the service would emanate, 2) a high speed Internet connection also at that site, 3) a 'box' there to connect the components from 1 & 2, and finally 4) a high speed Internet connection at the location wherein the receiving person resides. And since BillyD0123 says he is leaving the US, he would not have an 'at-home' residence where he could set up numbers 1 & 2 (unless he has family willing to accommodate his Patriot's thirst!).
This (the need for a specific football team's games) may fall into the category of, "I want to move to Mexico but I'll be damned if I'll give up [fill in your habit].... I'm just saying.
Maybe Shaw Direct has a 'New England' feed......
