All the articles about "Cord Cutting" always speak about the legitimate options such as Hulu, Netflix, etc... and there is a reason for that and it is because they are SAFE alternatives to cable. There are plenty of "bandit" websites out there that offer all manner of Live TV and not just sports. BUT you have to take the time to install additional safeguards on your PC above and beyond the normal anti-virus and firewall. +David Brennan
I haven't missed ANY NFL game I wanted to see, I watched the Grammy awards as it was broadcast live along with my regular shows like The Voice and The Blacklist. The biggest oddity to these "bandit" sites are where the streams comes from like a lot of the NFL games I watched last year came from SkySports in London which is a totally different experience as most commercial breaks had British commentators talking about the game but some of the UK commercials themselves are hilarious. If anyone wants to know more, I'd be happy to pass on the Windows programs I've installed along with a link for setting up a custom "host" file which is the key to blocking all the ads and malware crap that is the inherent UNSAFE part of trying to use these "bandit" sites (I can find most everything on cable TV and most live sporting events on the planet with just 3 of these sites).
