Die-hard NFL fans are going to get their games one way or another.  This means die-hard NFL fans (who don't have satellite TV) don't have to go to a sports bar to watch all their games, where they invariably spend upwards of $50 per week on expensive beer and food they don't need.  Beer and food at home are much cheaper.  For some people, such as myself, this would absolutely be a good deal.

AppleTV isn't listed and I really hope they add it, it would be foolish not to

This will not include playoff games because they are nationally televised and considered "in market" games. And since the NFL runs for 17 weeks it's actually 11.76 per week.

Thanks for the clarification.

 

Still a reasonable price to pay if one is a big fan of the game.

currently the app supports airplay... at least as it stands now you can play highlights from last year's games. 

 

Using safari I am unable to click on the "check my eligibility" button - its always grayed out.  Anyone else have this problem?  Chrome will let me click it.

Absolutely no interest in this but I do like to see anything being sold unbundled to cable/sat. Now if we could just get a few channels like AMC/HBO/Sho to be sold that way.

The unfortunate thing; however, is it blacks out local teams. That's the only reason I don't subscribe to MLBTV.

And this is why this whole thing is DOA for me and I suspect most other people. The 'out-of-market' clause ensures that nobody who lives in the same city or region where their team is located will not be able to use the service. $200.- for watching other teams when all I'm really interested in is my local team? Yeah right.

college gymnastics players get all of that too, and bring no money in to the school and NCAA. football and basketball allow the NCAA billions of dollars in profit.
the college athletic system is broken, and it is the NCAA's fault

and players don't get gifts - it is against NCAA rules, and will cause them to lose "amateur" status.



NCAA, like FIFA, is a corrupt organization that needs a brighter light shone on it.


...did you know the average life expectancy of an NFL player is 55?

Haha to they don't get gifts. Do a quick google search on that one. Every bowl game gives the players some kind of gift.

Not sure why everyone is acting like this is brand new -- this was available last year (I had it with the Madden package you could purchase off of Amazon). There was a big problem with the product, as the "live" stream of the games was a solid minute behind real time. Not a huge deal, but when the app has a score ticker that pops up whenever a team scores, it would basically spoil every score. Hopefully they fix this.

I distinctly remember trying to mirror from my MBA to the AppleTV to watch an iTunes Extra clip. I bought a movie with "extras" and it just wouldn't mirror or play on the AppleTV no matter what I did (short of plugging in with a HDMI adaptor and cord into the TV.) I think this was fixed within the last few days. Haven't tried it.

 

$200 is a bit steep. But, I might buy it just to support this kind of thing. The Holy Grail of content is the ala carte options. I want to see more choices, more options, more bang for my buck. Shocking hunh?

post #53 of 70
Without Airplay this does not interest me. Also it would be nice to be able to buy individual games or weeks. As a Bronco fan many of the Bronco games will be national or west coast broadcast games. I would rather pay for just those that are not. I guess if you are a Raiders or Jaguars fan this could be a good deal. I find the tone of the article humorous, like this is the best thing since sliced bread.

The ones that will most certainly get this are the fantasy football players.

This is a little misleading....

"Now you can stream live, out-of-market NFL games on your favorite device without a DIRECTV satellite TV subscription if you live in an apartment building where DIRECTV service is not available, attend one of these universities, or live in the following metro areas: New York City, Philadelphia, or San Francisco. Check your eligibility."

I bet most will not qualify for this.

the article left out one important part about this deal. This was copied from the website.

Now you can stream live, out-of-market NFL games on your favorite device without a DIRECTV satellite TV subscription if you live in an apartment building where DIRECTV service is not available, attend one of these universities, or live in the following metro areas: New York City, Philadelphia, or San Francisco. Check your eligibility.

 

Couldn't find anything about these terms changing.

Exactly.
And those of us who don't live "in market" for our teams.
Someone said they wish there were single game options--I expect that will happen eventually. But it will be so expensive that it will seem ridiculous. Personally, not being a fantasy guy, I would love a single team option--it doesn't have to be 1/32nd of the price, I would happily pay half for just 14 games (2 in market when they play the locally).

I know.  Its the one "flaw" in this cutting the cord mess.  These little independent stations of big companies buy up all the exclusive rights.

Fox Sports Southwest has 3 of the 4 major Dallas teams exclusivity- the Mavericks, Stars, and Rangers.  Fox/CBS/NBC/NFL/ESPN have NFL.  TNT has playoffs for NBA.  NBC has Soccer (futbol), etc, etc.  Unless they get their own app (they won't)- I'm screwed with my sports watching.  Luckily, the Rangers have sucked so bad this year, I'm not missing anything ;)

 

I'd actually pay $300-400 for just my 4 local sports teams- But I can't get that option.  You suck television!

The article left out this part, just below the fold (emphasis mine):

 

"Now you can stream live, out-of-market NFL games on your favorite device without a DIRECTV satellite TV subscription if you live in an apartment building where DIRECTV service is not available, attend one of these universities, or live in the following metro areas: New York City, Philadelphia, or San Francisco."

 

This means that, excluding the locations above, if DirecTV is available in your area then nflsundayticket.tv is only available WITH a satellite subscription. I entered my own address to check my eligibility and I can't get this service without a DirecTV subscription.

post #61 of 70

It also seems that you need to be out of DirecTV's reach in order to qualify. I tried signing up and was told my address doesn't qualify, but would I like to purchase DirecTV? Ha, no.

 

I know the DirecTV deal is lucrative for the NFL but the technology restrictions are retarded.

No I get your point, I just think it's wrong and ridiculous.

NYC, Phila and SF ONLY !!   Oh, and some colleges.

 

Everyone else - you're SOL.

 

What a dumb move. Raising everyones hopes and then dashing them. I hope they get some serious blowback about this.

Hello everyone,

 

I have a question / suggestion about the address for this NFL Sunday Ticket . tv..... When I put in my address, it says I can't get it because I can receive directv at my current residence, however I'm thinking of a loophole system that might work. Let me know if ya'll think this will work.

 

I was going to use my friends address which is elgible to receive these offers, and where it asks for the credit card information since the billing address is grayed out and you can't change it, I was going to use a prepaid visa gift card to pay for it. I'm thinking that will work as in some cases when using a prepaid visa gift card, it asks you for the billing address and you can just use your friends address.... Problem solved.   What does everyone think about that?
