MNF and TNF options for cable-cutters


With my kids now both off to college, I realized the only reason I had cable service was for football, so I cancelled it after the Superbowl, planning to reinstate it again when NFL season started.

But, given that with an HD Tuner I can pick up (probably) all the games that I watched on Sunday (CBS, FOX, NBC), I'm now wondering if I should just leave the cable cut. The two problem children are of course MNF (ESPN) and TNF (NFL Network). I'm a bit of a hermit, so going out to a bar to watch these is not an option really, but I'm also pretty addicted to football so just not watching them, or watching them via NFL Replay the next day is also not an option.

I am able to login to WatchESPN using my AT&T account. Even though I've cut Uverse, and have no cable, I still use AT&T for internet and have a Uverse account for that. It looks like I can run WatchESPN both on my desktop and my Xbox 360, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to get MNF that way since my Uverse account is "Internet only" and doesn't include cable.

I also don't have much idea about TNF. According to NFL website, TNF is available for streaming for free on Xbox with Live subscription, but it is unclear from their 2014 announcement what _kind_ of Xbox they mean. Are they referring only to the new Xbox One? I can't tell.

Anybody have any idea about these options, or other suggestions I haven't thought of?
