I'm one of the disgruntled DISH network subscribers who just realized that the Rose Bowl is on ABC today, and our local affiliate (KATU) no longer is on DISH due to a ridiculous contract dispute.
After having done some quick Google research on how to see the Rose Bowl for free over the Internet, here's the best option I've come up with.
At the moment I'm seeing a live feed of the Capitol One Bowl, which precedes the Rose Bowl on ABC. Kind of fuzzy and a bit jerky on our 1.2 mbps DSL connection.
But sure better than nothing.
