There is a program called Hide My Ass that I used when I lived in Italy to watch the games. It allows you to disguise your IP address or use one in the US so you can watch games on ESPN3, ect. There is also something called a slingbox that you can use (i never had one, but my neighbor did).
I was in Canada last weekend and they were being huge a-holes about putting the games on. I'm glad I will be in the US this weekend at my local b-dubs where I know for sure the games will be on.
