How to stream Browns game?
 
Google confidently says I can watch the Browns game on CBS All Access if I've cut the cord or am out of market. I'm out of market and have CBS All Access, but looking at the Live TV options now 20 minutes before kickoff, I'm not seeing where it will be.

Anyone know for sure?

Edit: I'm in the NYC area and it looks like CBS All Access Live TV will only show me the Jets game.

Yeah, CBS All Access is offering me exactly one game: Bills @ Jets. I'm already DVRing that game on cable, so CBS All Access is offering me no value whatsoever.

Booooooooo!

On further research, CBS All Access only offers your local market CBS station via the Live TV feature, so all those countless "How to stream if you've cut the cord or are out of market" articles I've googled over the past week are just flat-out lies. Lies!

There's no legal option to stream the game of your choice in the US. The NFL has made every exclusivity deal they can manage and so everything is tied expensive packages, most obviously DirectTV Sunday Ticket, but you also need to have an expensive cable package to get NFL Redzone for example (which I'd subscribe to directly if that were an option). Every streaming option I've ever seen is just an alternate way to view whatever the over the air game would be for your region.

The rest of the world gets to use NFL Gamepass to stream live games, which is a really great way to watch games, but not available legally in the US. Some people use VPNs to appear to be from other countries to stream that way within the US, but that's a violation of the terms of service and no guarantee they won't stamp it out.

I'd love a legal streaming option like that, I'd pay (and have paid) a few hundred bucks a year for it, but the NFL is too entrenched with its current distribution model to allow such a thing.

I'm irked because I have the Live TV option on Hulu, which gets me afternoon games, but instead of showing the Sunday Night Football broadcast on NBC, they throw on other programming.
