It’s a long shot but does anyone know if you can stream the game while on a plane. I doubt it but if anyone has tried it please let me know thanks.

I'm going to be on a plane as well.  I'm trying to decide if I should watch or not.  If it gets ugly, I might get arrested or something.

Man there are so many variables in this question to try to answer it  But, I would say don't expect it, because the probably block for streaming. However, depending on the airline you might have a shot with the official site or low-quality pirate stream depending on if they have the bandwidth speeds to support video streaming. Even if it supports it I wouldn't be surprised if they quickly cap you as satellite data is very expensive.   

However, I am pretty confident that 101 and the stat links should load with no problem.

Have you happened to try it by chance? Because from my reading of multiple airlines FAQ they can throttle speeds after like 250 MB so if you attempt to watch pick the LOWEST video settings.

Depending on the airline, some give a discount if you purchase it ahead of time. If I was you I would pony up the money to give it a try. I will post the streaming links closer to game time.

I just flew home on Southwest during yesterday’s game. Eight dollars good for a couple of weeks.

Has anyone been able to stream CBSSN games on Roku with a cable subscription?

No idea, try it and let us know?

So were you able to watch video on SouthWest during the game? If so which stream did you watch it from? 

Edit: First post updated for today's game.

I’m in Mexico and CBS does not appear to be available.

I’ve never needed this thread more than I do now.

The CBS Sports app should carry it, not sure about restrictions outside of the US though might be looking at a reddit stream

Watched on a Reddit stream yesterday. CBS sports is terrible. And it was perfect.

Where are you at in Mexico? If you are at one of the all inclusives they should be able to get you the game on a TV there.  Call the desk and tell them the situation.

When it gets close to game time, try http://firstrowi.net/basketball.  You may have to be patient.  Yesterday the link didn't show up until 5 minutes into the game.  As always, be wary of the popup ads.  Also, sometimes the feed freezes, but that could just be because of my crank-powered laptop.

Stay away from the pools if you are planning to celebrate properly when we win.
