Sunday-Ticket

For the first time ever, users who do not subscribe to DirecTV service will have access to the NFL’s Sunday Ticket service on their mobile devices and computers for the 2014 season. During previous seasons, Sunday Ticket users had to have an active DirecTV satellite subscription to stream the games. While no official announcement has been made, DirecTV has published a promotional page for the service, advertising the fact that users can now “access live, out-of-market NFL games without a DIRECTV satellite TV account.

The service, according to the promotional page, will start $199.99 for the season with access via mobile devices and computers. Should you want access on video game consoles, you’ll have to spring for the $239.99 tier. The top of the line option runs $329.99 and includes access to Red Zone and the Fantasy Zone channel. It’s unclear at this point if AirPlay will be supported, but currently, the Sunday Ticket iOS app does not have it enabled.

Now you can access live, out-of-market NFL games without a DIRECTV satellite TV account—no matter what team you follow! NFLSUNDAYTICKET.TV lets you stream games on your computer, tablet, phone, or game console. All while keeping up with real-time player stats and your fantasy teams.

The NFL Sunday Ticket streaming service will be supported on a variety of iOS and Android devices. Streaming starts on September 7th. The app is available on the App Store now. DirecTV does note that there are some markets in which the streaming service will not be supported, but you can check your area on the company’s website. Local games are also still blacked out.
