The video on the link is rather low resolution.

Fortunately I was able to get an antenna that works to watch the Super Bowl in HD even though the local NBC affiliate and Time-Warner are still at an impasse about carrying the channel on cable. The NBC affiliate was running promos suggesting viewers switch to Grande or get satellite service from Dish Network or DirecTV. Time Warner was giving out free antennas.

Is it only the online camera that isn’t following the ball? Manning passes and the camera stays with him...

I'll pass on the halftime show. It's usually gaudy, vulgar and Philistine. I wouldn't pay a penny to see Madonna and I see no reason to watch her on my computer - I'd probably end up with another virus.

” I’d probably end up with another virus.”

Whatever diseases Madonna will be disseminating would be bacterial in nature - of course, how would one administer penecillin to a computer??

There’s multiple cameras. Try clicking on a different Camera.

If that does not work, then go to www.nbc.com and start over.

I tried it on the iPad, and it indeed works, which is better than I expected. I’d love to see the specs on the pipe(s) they have going for net access.

10 years ago I never would have imagined being able to watch the superbowl while going down the road in a car, and all you’d need to make it happen is a cell phone and small computer that weighs less than a pound.

Did I just hear correctly??

I think I heard a Chevrolet ad for the “Apocalypse-proof Silverado”...

Speechless.... (almost)

Yeah same here!

I noticed when it first came in on the iPad it was a little blurry, but it quickly cleared up to really sharp. Took about a minute or two.

You can watch it on an iPhone too.

Alright! It’s pretty cool how you can swap the camers, screens and even see all the stats.

I’m just waiting for the all the channels to sell their live programing to people with Tablets, Computers and phones. Thus, bypassing the cable companies. It’s only a matter of time.

(Government Motors) GM, Ford feud over Super Bowl ad
Reuters ^ | Sun Feb 5, 2012 | Bernie Woodall

GM, Ford feud over Super Bowl ad

(Reuters) - A simmering feud between General Motors Co and Ford Motor Co heated up on Sunday as Ford objected to GM’s Super Bowl advertisement for its Chevy Silverado pickup truck.

The ad, which will run on NBC’s television broadcast of the Super Bowl on Sunday, depicts an apocalyptic scene in which Chevrolet Silverado pickup trucks and their owners escape death and make it to a pre-arranged meeting point.

But, one of their friends, identified as “Dave,” who drives a Ford, doesn’t make it to the meeting site, in the video that plays off the idea that the ancient Mayans predicted the world would end in 2012.

A letter from Ford attorney Lynne M. Matuszak says that according to insurance industry data it is Ford, and not GM, that makes the safer pickup truck and she called on GM not to use the ad. GM has refused to pull the spot.

GM has had the advertisement on its website for a few days, and a posting on YouTube by Sunday afternoon had been viewed 1.6 million times. GM stands by the ad and its claims.

“Ford insists that Chevrolet refrain from running the commercial during (Sunday’s) Super Bowl; refrain from any future use of the commercial; and permanently remove the commercial from its website, its YouTube and Facebook pages and any other Internet sites,” Matuszak wrote.

Jim Farley, Ford’s global sales and marketing chief, told reporters on sidelines of the National Automobile Dealers Association convention in Las Vegas on Sunday that despite the GM claim that pickup truck registrations over the past 30 years support the ad’s claim, Ford will fight the commercial.

“Open the door, it’s Dave.”

“Dave’s not here, man.”

Etc. What’s this latest spat, Chevy and Chong?

I beg to differ, Uncle Ike - herpes is a virus and I wouldn't come within ten yards of that slut. As far as I am aware, there is no cure for herpes, and it would not surprise me if any computer virus I might pick up from exposure to her performance would be incurable as well.

On a serious note, the people responsible for these Super Bowl halftime shows are modern pagans with no regard for the sensibilities of their audience - they pander to the lowest, crudest and vilest elements of our population.

They have turned the ancient maxim regarding the purpose of Art, "dulce et utile," on its head to pursue and appeal to the lowest common denominator - no sweetness, no elegance, no usefulness and no value.

Just my $.02.

Just thought I'd put that out there, and GO GIANTS! I'm not so much a giants fan as I absolutely despise the Patriots.

Thanks, I think I’m going with SPEEDbit Acceleration Pack. I’ve got 6 computers, so why not.

I've been using Download Accelerator Plus (aka Speedbit) for years its been great.

The video downloader was not allowing the iTunes store to load recently. That is the first minor issue I have ever had with it. The solution was to shut down the video accelerator. Then run the iTunes store and it works. However, I'm sure they resolved that by now?? I just have not checked it. Nevertheless, it usually works great with iTunes. Every three months or so I check to see if there is an update.

Other than that little blip that's easy to fix it's been great! You will not be disappointed.

It’s $20 or $30 at the most for three computers. Oh wait you had 6 computers.

Okay well it should work just like this video.

I see there are two different video programs. You may have downloaded the wrong program.

Here is what you want. It’s the one with the red,green and yellow arrows. Download it, installed it and it will ask you for your activation code. Once ready I would reboot the computer. Good luck!

Hey FYI....

After a few days of toying with the Speedbit Video. I remembered later I removed it because I had issues with it. Always had it hidden in the background while running, but I forgot I removed it. .I sent a letter to the support explaining it.

At any rate the DAP (Download Accelerator Plus) works on the web AND the videos (perhaps that is why speed bit video does not work like it use to?). So you do not need the Speedbit video. Once again I’m sorry I could not recall at the time we spoke.

Try just the Download accelerator plus and you will see it. However, first remove Speedbit Video Accelerator. It will require a reboot.

Then once you install the Download Accelerator Plus. You should notice the difference right after you install it. I don’t believe it requires a reboot.

Try the free version “DAP 9.7” here and don’t get the 10 beta.

http://www.speedbit.com/

It’s right at the top of the page. I’m telling you please give it one more shop. The free copy will be faster and the paid version is extremely fast. This should help you and sorry for all your issues.

Yeah sorry about that. Between work and other things going on in my life... That’s why it took me a little time to figure it out.

See speedbit Video has an option to hide it and run it in the background. I did that a while back and it worked great for years until not too long ago.

So I had uninstalled and just used the Download Accelerator Plus a few months ago. The DAP has been great! Think I pay $20 a year for it. The Free Verizon opens 4 more paths in your computer and the paid opens 10. Guess since DAP works with videos now perhaps why it clashing with Speedbit video?

At any rate sorry for all your troubles.
