If there is anyone who knows about or installs cable, we might be able to have a watch party at Capogna's saturday.  Email me usfmutt1@gmail.com

Screw the male end of the coax into the female end.  Repeat down the line.  

 

But anyway, game is not on cable.  You need an innerwebz technician.  

Plug the male end of the rj45 into the female socket.  Repeat down the line.

Why not take a reliable laptop connected to decent internet and a very long hdmi cable?

Or just stream WatchESPN wirelessly to the TV from your phone.

Buy a roku or amazon fire streaming device. If you have a cable account or have access to someones link it to watchespn app. 

I think you can also buy either vue or sling(apps) and be able to use that login with watchespn.

Guys, the original question from Mutt is about streaming at Capogna's.  It's a bar.  If they're like most bars, they can get every cable channel on earth, but they're not prepared to stream anything.  That's where he needs help.  Other than plugging in an hdmi cable, I doubt their tv's can handle wireless connections unless Mutt shows up with a roku box or chromecast to plug into one of the tv's.

Yes it also requires Internet. Thanks for trying to get a watch party going! Really need to get a couple of spots near USF and around town that  make those watch parties happen.:421_football:

For the Bullsrally we tap our signal directly into the cable box outside, so all of the TV's in the place play what we want. BUT this year they had their box redone so  cable/phones/WiFi and their ability to take credit cards are knocked out. I was wondering if a tech could keep their business running and we could broadcast the signal off of one computer.

Chromecast... $30 at Office Depot. Plugs into HDMI and connects wirelessly to phones, tablets and laptops.

The way I do it: (warning... Apple specific)

View on my MacBook. AirPlay to my Apple TV connected by a 50 ft HDMI to the TV on my porch. Instant watch party. I know it's not cheap and don't expect people to run out and buy a MacBook, but if you have one it's super easy.

Chromecast can do the same thing and most businesses have an internet connection.
