Is NFL game rewind worth it?

I recently moved from the East coast to out west, and I now don't have cable. So I can't watch games. I was thinking of getting NFL.com game rewind and watch the game the next day. I can try streaming the game, but the connection goes out quite a bit. Anyone ever done Game rewind and is it worth it?

(Mods, if this is in the wrong place, let me know thanks!!)
Get an HD antenna and you can watch all the games on local stations.

Wait, you moved from East to West? Or West to east?
If you live out west you shouldn't have a problem getting the game.
I live in NC so I don't get all the games. For $30 it's a great deal, get to watch past seasons too. Bummer is you can't watch it while any NFL game is live, so if you want to watch on Sunday it's a late night, especially on the East coast.

I moved from the East Coast (New Hampshire) to the West (Utah). They only show Broncos games out here and I don't like Denver. Plus the house I'm renting from doesn't have cable at all. I might look into the 1st suggestion (HD Antenna). If that doesn't work out, I was thinking of NFL.com Game rewind unless I could find a really good streaming site. I tried firstrowsports.eu but the connection goes out all the time.

That's what I figured. I probably won't be able to watch the game until later that night or the next day.

Thats what I would do,
I also suggest buying a Google Chromecast, should run you about 30 bucks.
It will stream HD and if you can get it on your TV, you can cast it to your TV in HD

I was just checking Amazon and they have a good HD Antenna for just $36. Since I live in a city I should get good reception. I'll have to try this and let you guys know.

Definitely worth it. Although you can't watch games live it's awesome to be able to go back and watch old games especially if you're not able to DVR games.
It has a condensed 30 minute version of all plays, coaches version, and the regular version.
You can access every NFL game from the past 3 years.

The iPad NFL game rewind is A++

1. Yes, it's worth it. I use it, it comes in handy... you get to analyze the plays better with the nice rewind button

2. It's nice for handicapping next weeks games (especially if you miss games due to work or something).

3. Come out to Vegas and watch all of them for free at any local bar while enjoying your favorite brew... a nice 49er bar on Jones Blvd/Warm Springs Rd with decent grub

BTW, I don't know how far away you are from St. George, but a 40 mile trip to Mesquite, NV is really close http://casablancaresort.com/casino-race-sports-book/.
I dropped by there a couple of times on the way to St George, the Race & Sports Book was nice (had all the games showing at once on big screens)

I live in India and last season I sprung for Game Pass and Rewind. I get every game plus Game Day and Red Zone. During the week I check out the 49ers opponents for the next week. The service provides full game video, condensed version, and coaches film for each game upon demand. A tip for others living outside the USA, don't purchase the playoffs, wait until Dec, the price is much lower.
It is easily worth it. The coach's film itself makes it worth it so you can see what is going on in the defensive backfield. Otherwise, there's no way to tell what the WRs and safeties are doing.
buck up and get some cable. sure you could get this but if you cant watch it live whats the point? you gonna have to tune out your friends, not read texts, be off the phone etc. if you dont mind watching a game while already knowing the outcome then yeah i guess its ok, but i'm not the type who can do that, it takes away the intrigue. if cable is an issue for whatever reason just go to the local sports bar on a weekly basis.
If it's in the budget you can get the Sunday Ticket streaming package for around $300 or so. The downside is you don't get the Thursday or Monday games (an HD antenna takes care of SNF since it's NBC). You still come out much cheaper than a cable subscription and you don't have to futz around with janky, spyware-ridden streaming sites.

You can sign up right on the DirectTV website.
