Re: [Connectivity] How Comcast internet works overseas..Need Eur I already know that GamePass is designed especially for those in another country and when you sign up over there for it, it's for a country or region. (Same service over here is called 'NFL Rewind')
You have a choice of watching the games live (which one doesn't usually want to do because of the time difference, or, they store them in an 'Archive' for you and you can access them when it's possible. Still video, but not 'live video'--thus, still streaming I guess.
I don't have a cell phone. No signal where I live and I don't really have need for one. I wouldn't pay those fees to do this. I'll have an iPad, but that's it.
I've looked into VNP connections but it seems as you say, the playback is very jerky over there.
Bottom line, I think, from your help and my own research is that I just have to wait till I get to Kathy's place and log into NFL from there and see 'what's what'. My guess is I'm at the mercy of the signal strength wherever I am, as Shot says. If it works, it works. If not, I watch from home when I return.
HOWEVER, it now occurs to me that I could try to schedule all the games on my Comcast DVR while I'm gone, but that's hard to do because the network changes and you often cant schedule ahead beyond a couple of weeks.
All enough to make my hair hurt!
Also, be aware that many wifi spots in Europe are not free. You may wind up paying for the service. IIRC, $8/hr was the going rate 2 years ago.

The service is designed for those overseas, yes, but for someone living in a permanent place (I worked in London for 6 months, something like that) not for people boucing around to a different country every week (i dont mean to sound condescending, i think its cool what you are doing).
Just remember this though, even if you do find a free wifi hotspot, a lot of them deprioritize streaming video (they dont want people sitting around all day choking the network).
I guess the solution at this point is...do your research. I hope we helped here into some understand on how it may work for you.
