Default Here's why you want Bama! ;-) If you're stuck on the blackout, here's a "get-around"

How To Circumvent the ESPN3 “Black Out”

Disclaimer 1: Modifying your Firefox browser headers is not against the law.
Disclaimer 2: If you aren’t technical enough to follow these instructions, I am sorry.

Certain events on ESPN3.com are subject to “blackouts” in certain areas depending on Pay-Per-View or other TV contract limitations. This is a simple solution to get around it.
  1. Download and install Firefox.
  2. Download the Modify Header Plugin.
  3. After installing the plugin, press “ALT” and go to Tools > Web Developer > Modify Headers.
  4. From the drop down box on the left select Add
  5. Enter ”X-Forwarded-For” in the first input box.
  6. Enter ”24.9.102.10” (or any IP address that is NOT in a “blacked-out state”).
    For example:
    24.9.102.10 (New Jersey)
    4.2.2.10 (Colorado)
    216.27.175.2 (Georgia)
    68.87.68.162 (Georgia)
    68.87.72.130 (Illinois)
    68.87.85.98 (Colorado)
    68.87.68.162 (Dallas)
  7. Leave the last input box empty, and save the filter, and enable it. If the header is enabled, it should be green (see above).
  8. Close the Modify Headers window and visit ESPN3.com to test.
    VERY IMPORTANT: Make sure the plugin thing is Enabled. To do this, press “ALT” and go to View > Toolbars > Add On Bar
  9. Make sure the small eye icon (bottom left corner in Firefox) is red and not gray in the bar.
    If it’s gray, click on it and select START
  10. If it’s enabled, it should look like this:

Thank you for that information. I suppose I'll just save this page as a link for future reference.

Unfortunately, Windstream, aka Weakstream, refuses to pay ESPN for the rights to ESPN3. Weakstream management is telling customers that complain that the reason is because their customer base demand for ESPN3 decreased significantly.

The only way you can try to correct this is by contacting Windstream to complain at Broadband Corporate Complaints C/o Broad Band Tier II 8957 Canyon Falls Blvd. PO Box 8005 Twinsburg Ohio, 44087-8005

I just made a complaint to the company, and also BBB complaint against them. I am emphasizing the importance and passion of the SEC football fan market.

Go visit a college campus. ESPN provides free access for most college campuses which is pretty cool.

I hope this plugin works for me tomorrow. I just downloaded chrome and zenmate. When I hover over the zenmate icon, it indicates I'm connected to New York, so I'm cautiously optimistic. Thanks for the find, and points.

Thanks very much for the post. I'm sitting here in Asheville, fat, dumb and happy thinking that I was exempt from the blackout, only to to be told I was blacked out when I tried to log in for the game. I am getting the game now, thanks to your tip!
