Currently I have a samsung that has pip my satellite also has pip which will work even if the tv doesnt have pip.


Every sunday I watch 3 nfl games live on my tv..I know there has to be a way where this can be expanded to 4 ,5 6 games live on 1 projector or tv...Because in canada one can watch 8 nhl games at the same time its something nhl does to make it happen on the bell satellite dish.


Does the nfl do something like that ? There has to be a way of watching multiple games live is there a program ,out there that can do this connecting a computer to your tv , certain "receiver" "hd box" special switches etc that can make this happen....Some magic projector etc ..


There has to be a way out there Hockey does it why not nfl......Anyone know how.

When you watch the 8 NHL games, you are watching 1 channel. All the processing is done at the origination of the channel.


In the states, DirecTV includes the NFL Game Mix Channel as past of the Sunday Ticket subscription, in HD.



You could do it yourself, but it would be very expensive. First, you'd need as many HD receivers (and dish feeds) as the number of games you want to watch at once. Second, you'd need a video processor that could input that number of games and output a single channel. Due to the advancement of computer processing capability, I'd be reluctant to guess at the cost of such a system these days, but probable over 5 figures.

What is your provider, and if it's DirecTV do you have the Sunday Ticket?


I believe that they offer two "game-mix" channels that show 8 games each on the channel. Not sure if you can pick and choose which games show up in each of the 8 channels though...I don't think you can if I remember correctly.


EDIT: See Ken's post.

Im willing to spend the money receivers are cheap and you can run I think 8 feeds on just 2 satellites.. Satellite is only $50 each receiver is only $100 bucks....


Dont know about the video processor. How much could this be and where can I find one.

My satellite provider is express vu ( bell canada)...

A quick check does not find any consumer units. That doesn't mean they don't exist, I just couldn't find any.


A professional video unit, the Vista Systems Spyder, configured for 7 HD inputs and one HD output, would be in the $60,000 range.
