'Other' live streaming Vikings vs 49ers methods
The NFL and ESPN and finally stepping up the "TV Everywhere" initiative laid out by the cable lobby, much to the benefit of Monday Night Football fans.
However, if none of the above methods work for you, there are alternatives - ones we've used before the advent of live streaming apps.
If you're away from your cable box in Minnesota, San Francisco or anywhere in the world, actually, we suggest you invest in a Slingbox M1, which streams and controls your DVR box via a private internet video player.
Then there's less legitimate streams via Periscope, Meerkat and shady looking websites. Don't fall for live streaming players are want you to instal harmful files. No football game is worth that headache.
