Watch live game action this Saturday from your laptop

Oct 14, 2009, 8:45 PM EDT

I just got a bit of good news from the higher-ups here at NBC Sports. While many of you have followed the game action with me during our epic live-blog sessions, a common question from the peanut gallery has been, “Where can we watch the game online?”

For the first time ever, I’m able to say… here!

Here’s the official news:

For the first time this season, Notre Dame fans will also be able to follow the action live online this Saturday. will be streaming a unique, bonus camera feed for the duration of Saturday’s game vs. USC (3:30 p.m. ET) marking the first time this season fans can also get an online-only complementary video experience to the broadcast of the game on NBC.


This is in addition to the digital experiences that have already been available all season, including live-streaming of the games on iPhones and live postgame webcasts, which originate from Notre Dame Stadium and include live coverage of coach Charlie Weis‘ postgame press conference.”

This should be a pretty cool experience for those who like to get as many media platforms going as possible. You can watch the game on your TV, stream it live at NBC, and follow along during the live-blog as I type furiously from the press box at Notre Dame stadium.

After talking about this with our production team, I’m convinced this will be a great supplement to the TV coverage, and if you’re stuck with no TV and only an internet feed, a pretty decent way to follow the game. Just to be clear, you won’t have all the bells and whistles of a standard NBC telecast, but you’ll get the broadcast audio feed with Tom Hammond and Pat Haden, as well as a cool camera view for the entire game.

(Better yet, you can’t beat the price.)

For those of you looking for a simulcast of the game, you can find that in the App Store for your iPhone, but if you’re like the rest of us that are iPhone-less, this should give you another way to follow the epic matchup this Saturday with the Trojans.

    1. those of us who have both tv and internet feeds will be using both, but turning off the tv sound, as usual, since the commentary of pat haden and tom hammond has always been less than worseless.
    2. we are informed that neither haden nor hammond will be back next season since they have each giving nbc more than ample reason to fire them both for breaching many provisions in their contracts, thereby creating openings for keith arnold and his staff. it is unfortunate that nbc did not offer this option before. however, until this season, nd central content had been hijacked by some shills for petey and usc. we are happy that keith and his staff have taken back nd central for notre dame. for the usc jerk claiming to be in copenhagen, yes,i am stating that that person is a liar. do you rally expect anyone to believe that some real usc fan in copenhagen tools around nd central, a website for notre dame fans and hits keith article with the 1st comment?
    4.i have also stated, on numerous occasions, to their faces, both orally and in writing, that petey and mikey and the usc football program are crooked and dishonest, provided them with some of the detailed evidence, and dared them to sue me.
    5. the fact they they have not dared to do so speaks volumes. they have a lot to hide. if they sue me, i have rights to discovery and to a jury trial. if they sued me, they would have to get on the witness stand and tesify under oatn after being required to produce every document in their possession and control.
    6.i am in excellent mental and physical health and do not take any medications since i do not need any. i never even heard of red bull or ritalin, but obviously this usc fan is familiar with both items. i also never consume any alcoholic beverages or anything containing caffeine or white sugar or any stumulants of any sort.
    7. after all, what any person eats or drinks, combined with a lot of good exercise (which is swimming 100 olympic laps in my case), determines a person’s mental and physical and spiritual health.
    8. i know every student athlete on notre dame’s 2009 team.since 1977, i have lived in los angeles for a large portion of most years and make it my business to get to know every usc full time football player and the very small number who are real student athletes, along with every coach and employee of the usc athletic department.
    9.i have known mikey for many years. we used to be personal friends before he hired petey and got into the serial cheating sewers with petey, of which bushgate is just the tip of the iceberg.
    10. i have also met and gotten to know petey quite well since he arrived at usc.
    11. petey and mikey and usc know that i have never lost a jury trial in over 30 years. their worst nightmare is to have to deal with me in the civil courts.
    12. usc has some fine full time football players who have zero real academic obligations, but very few who qualify as genuine student athletes.
    13. those usc full time football players might win on saturday against notre dame 2009 team, every single member of which is a real student athlete.
    14. although i will always be rooting for notre dame, i will always love and respect notre dame for the principles for which notre dame stands, whether notre dame wins or loses any athletic contest.
    15. when i 1st arived in los angeles from the east coast in 1977, i knew virtually nothing about usc, except that they were some team that notre dame played.
    16. since then, i have learned a great deal about usc and their athletic department.
    17. in 1977 and for quite a while after then, usc was correctly known locally as the school for spoiled rich kids who wanted to have fun at college without being bothered by any real academic obligations.
    18. to the credit of usc, the academic institution, usc has significantly upgraded many of their academic department and become a good, but not great college.
    19. however,with very few exceptions, the football and basketball players and other usc athletes have no connection at all with the academic side of usc. they play football or basketball full time and show up for games wearing the school colors.
    20. until 10/15/2009, when the ncaa and florida state were forced by court rulings in a case in which we activlely participated as co plaintiffs, to make public all of the documents relating to the ncaa investigation of academic fraud, the ncaa and the conferences and the schools had been able to operate behind walls of secrecy.
    21. with that case won, we will be following up with similar cases all over the us and you can rest assured that usc and petey and mikey will be defendants in one pf those disclosure lawsuits.
    22. since usc takes federal and state funds, along with funds from poublicly traded corporations in which we are shareholders, the fact that usc is a private, rather than a state insitution, will not help usc in the least, either with the discloure issues or with the civil damages.
    23. if usc really wants respect for usc’s football and other athletic teams, then usc will have to earn that respect by winning with real student athletes and by not engaging in serial and intentional rules violations,including getting assistance from crooked officials, as usc did in the 2005 and 2006 notre dame/usc games.
    in the meantime,
    GO IRISH!!!
    ps the sanctions assessed against florida state include a forfeiture of all wins in football and in every other sports, including championships, in which ineligible athletes participated back to the dates of the ineligibilities, even if florida state did not have actual knowledge of the ineligilities until much later.
    florida state self reported the violations, instead to trying to play coverup as usc has done, until that recent 10/15/2009 court ruling officially eliminated coverups as an option.

    Awesome, I started an irish fan club here in Osaka. They all agree to wear green and cheer so long as I keep the sake flowing.. haha..Almost paid some looser website a fist full of Yen for a link to here. Firefox rocks!! NBC Rocks!!

    If all works, will be watching from Liverpool, England. Timing is perfect as went to pick up this morning some ND apparel sent over from Hammes Bookstore. My little boy got his new ND polo shirt on and I have my new ND rubgy shirt on. I was in SB the last time the Irish beat USC in 2001 with my dad so here’s to another victory. Go Irish.

    To Domers living outside of the US:
    Watching online streaming from US based websites (NBC, ESPN360 etc) was designed (unfortunately) only for people living in the US; I have had problems accessing these programs recently as I currently live in Singapore.
    Let’s hope that this new NBC ND live feature does not present this problem, but if it does don’t fret – check out the following link:
    Better yet, a free solution:

    It might seem strange, but I’m a current ND grad student and wasn’t able to get tickets for this season. I don’t have a tv. Now I can watch the game from home instead of going to an empty bar. So this is great news for even the locals.

  7. David-san - Oct 17, 2009 at 11:31 AM

    Shoupermaqn –
    where in Japan? And will you share the cold pizza? My pizza place was out of squid.. go figure I can catch it on the docks…
    Im in Osaka and finally found a super market. We can make our own.

    I am in London, UK… “Outlined against a blue, gray October sky the Four Horsemen rode again. In dramatic lore they are known as famine, pestilence, destruction and death.”
    Wake up the echoes.

    Two words for NBCSPORTS: Touchdown Jesus. Living in Egypt, watching Notre Dame football, God is certainly smiling down on me.

  11. James Holt - Oct 17, 2009 at 12:45 PM

    What does that have to do with ANYTHING HERE?????

  12. Shouperman - Oct 17, 2009 at 1:02 PM

    Hey David-san, unforntunately i’m in Tokyo and the bullet train aint moving at this time of the night. have my pizza ready, just hope the game comes online overseas or my pizza is gonna be soggy with tears. btw checkout , Rocket’s on there at the pep rally, he surely pumped me up for the game. brings back memories of 88, vs the convicts, the stadium was louder than a jumbo jet. am sure the SC game today isnt going to be any different. LETS GO GET IT! GO IRISH!

    What? What does that have to do with this topic?
    As a woman I understand the desire to feel equally recognized in the greater society, but PLEASE. Can we stay on one topic at a time?

  22. Dennis - Oct 17, 2009 at 3:14 PM

    You must be Irish Catholic. You’re apologizing when you’ve done nothing wrong. You simply are wishing upon the opposing team the same we wish upon SC. Are you sure you’re rooting for the right team?

  23. scotty - Oct 17, 2009 at 3:14 PM

    Super!! I’ll be watching the game at home in Southern Cal. I am a devoted USC fan. GO TROJANS!! But, I wanted to thank NBC for making so many others happy, regardless of their loyalty.
    Fight on USC.

  24. Matt Anderson - Oct 17, 2009 at 3:48 PM

    Lame. They’re only showing it from one camera so we only see part of the action and from a long ways away. C’mon, NBC. You can do better than that….

  25. Beijing Buckeye - Oct 17, 2009 at 4:04 PM

    What a joke! That sure is one “special” camera feed! Typical corporate greed from GE and ND. ND fans overseas must be fuming at this bait-n-switch.
