Holy Days if no TLM: Plan B?

This, and other streaming Masses (the SSPX has the earliest one in the world since it streams from New Zealand at 9:00 am on a Sunday, thus it's still on Saturday most everywhere else) is always a good way of sanctifying the Sunday or Holy Day if you cannot make Mass, but let's be clear it's not a substitute for Mass. You cannot fulfill your obligation by watching a televised or streamed Mass.

The obligation is physical presence and at least sufficient attention for the essential part of the Mass (Offertory to Dismissal). If that is morally or physically impossible, you no longer have any obligation.

Your obligation cannot be fulfilled, because it does not exist any more.

The Divine Law, however, commands we do something to sanctify the day, and this could be done by watching the Mass, but it could be done in a myriad of other ways, and you have no obligation to watch a Mass in such a case.

Those distinctions are important, because it deals with peoples' consciences.
