New Englanders who can’t be in front of their TVs to watch the Boston Marathon will be able to watch the race live online. CBSBoston.com will be streaming coverage beginning at 9 a.m. If you are outside of New England, or you’re going to be at work and your company’s computer servers are outside of New England, you may not be able to see the Elite Race portion of our coverage online (approx. 9a-to-12:15p). Sorry, the New England border is where our online streaming rights end for this portion of the race.
