Info for streaming audio for the 2011 season...

www.WWL.com is streaming the local radio feed for all games this year. You may reconize the voice of broadcaster Jim Henderson as the voice you hear when watching Saints videos. Get the game from a Saints Fan Prospective like a local New Orleanian. It take just a couple of seconds for you to snyc it up with the TV game.

ENJOY!

Are you sure this will be for ALL games, or just pre-season? I think the NFL is still charging for live radio feeds.

That's fantastic news if it's true!

Q: Is there any charge to listen to Saints games on WWL.com?

A: No, no charge at all. You do have to first sign up for the WWL Big Talkers Club, where you can opt-in to our newsletters, news alerts, special deals, etc. Signing up is completely free, and we do NOT share your email address with anyone. You only need to sign up once, and the sign-up is free. You can go ahead and sign up before game day by CLICKING HERE.

However, although we do not charge for our live stream on game day (or any other day,) you should note that running a live audio stream on your computer does count as data usage on your internet plan. You may want to check with your internet service provider if you think streaming several hours a week could make an impact on your data usage limitations with your particular internet provider.

Q: Can I listen to the games at WWL.com if I'm out of state or out of country?

A: Yes, absolutely. In fact, that's one of the main reasons we wanted to stream the games on WWL.com. There are no restrictions on where you can listen to the game online. And, we're particularly happy that this will make the "home-town call" of Saints games available for free to thousands of Who Dats in the military, deployed around the country and around the globe.

Q: Can I get the game on my mobile phone / smartphone / WWL iPhone App?

A: No - You'll only be able to hear the Saints game stream on WWL.com on a desktop or laptop computer.

This is an important point: Unfortunately, we only have the right to carry the games on our regular WWL.com stream for desktops and laptop computers. Another company already holds the rights to stream audio of NFL games to apps and smartphones. That means we will not be able to offer the Saints game via the WWL.com stream on any mobile phone, on the iPhone app, or on any other type of mobile device.

Q: Will the audio be in synch with the TV?

A: No. When we send our Saints broadcast from Jim & Hokie to computer servers that redistribute the audio to thousands of WWL.com listeners, it requires massive "buffering" of the audio to ensure that everyone can hear the game. That process does result in a significant delay between what you see on TV and what you hear on WWL.com. If you have a DVR, however, you could also delay your video to match it up.

Got a question we didn't address here? Email us at wwlstreaming@gmail.com

And when they say massive, they mean it. WWLs internet feed was several plays behind the television game feed...which is fine by me, but the guys here in the chat box watching it on TV were way ahead of what I was hearing...Transmissions to the Moon are probably faster, round trip, but oh well...

Makes me wonder if adjusting it on the DVR is a waste of time. It sounds like the delay would have have a random changing parameter. Oh well, it's free. I do have Sirius but what Saint fan would not want t listen to WWL. They just need to change that horn chime in or whatever it is. They've been having the same intro sound for like 20 years. Downright annoying.

Here in NO WWL is reporting that the radio feed is faster than the TV cast which means you can sync the game with a little effort. The preseason games are being handled by Cox.net of New Orleans and is not a network broadcast. I'm not sure if that has anything to do with.

What a great post! I just noticed this today and good thing I did. I'm in Michigan folks--no Saints coverage here. I'm a big talker now!
