    hmmm, I don't think you can without some hardware like Slingplayer.

    I assume by your name you have an iPad, you can get the Directv Sunday Ticket app and watch on that but you may have to be a subscriber, I'm not sure. Either way you'll have to pay some sort of subscription I'm sure.

    Option 3 would be fake an injury and call off sick :D

    Unless you have EyeTV or a Slingbox you won't be able to watch *your own* feed of the game (if you do happen to have EyeTV, just log into your account at and you'll be able to stream).

    You'll have to stream other ways such as Search around, despite what the NFL and the US government are doing to prevent it, there will be plenty of streams of the game.

    You don't mention in your post if you have a tv tuner card, for your iMac and/or MBP, but if you do and have a compatible tuner card you could download and install Orb and use it as a Slingbox alternative. You could steam to any computer, your iPad, iPhone, etc.
