Default Roku + Hulu = NFL?

We're thinking about canceling our FiOS. Any other NFL fans out there who've done this? I'm nervous about losing my games. Are there any other services besides Hulu for watching NFL games using a Roku?

Antenna? OTA broadcast is awesome, simple, and free.

An antenna doesn't get Monday Night, does it?

Correct. Networks only (CBS, NBC, ABC and Fox)...no ESPN

OTA will only get me two teams I don't like! Damn, I had a feeling that was my only option. Has anyone used NFL rewind? Supposedly its a small fee and you get to watch any game once the game is over.

You can watch NFL on Hulu?

Also you could always steam the games online.

You might want to check out PlayOn. You have to run it from a PC with at least a 2Ghz processor, but you can get a lot of channels you wouldn't otherwise. It's worked with games on ESPN3 for me, but I haven't tried ESPN.

I can run PlayOn on my laptop and stream the feed to my Roku box, which is nice since I don't have to mess around with hooking the laptop up to my TV.

mragin, thanks for the PlayOn suggestion, it looks very interesting and we're going to check it out more later. I like the fact that it doesn't require Roku since I already have a PS3. Does the $19.95 per year cover the content or do you need separate accounts with Hulu, Netflix, etc.?

Why not do free online streaming? Everyone should have a PC hooked up to their TV now a days anyway.
