DirecTV Introduces NFL Sunday Ticket Free of TV Subscription

DirecTV announced that it will offer its NFL Sunday Ticket to certain consumers who do not have a satellite subscription. Sports fans can register via NFLSundayTicket.TV to access streaming of live games on laptops, smartphones, tablets or game consoles. To qualify, viewers must live in an apartment building where DirecTV is not available, attend one of the universities included in DirecTV’s list, or live in metropolitan New York, San Francisco or Philadelphia. 

Those that are not eligible must still pay for DirecTV satellite subscriptions.

The list of applicable colleges includes: University of Alabama, University of Colorado at Boulder, University of Florida, Harvard University, University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, Ohio State University, University of Southern California, Syracuse University, University of Texas at Austin and University of Washington.


“A $200, season-long package will give users access to live, out-of-market games on computers and mobile devices. A $240 package lets you watch games on the Xbox 360, Xbox One, Playstation 3 or Playstation 4, and a $330 package includes both mobile and PC as well as game console access as well as other exclusive features,” reports GigaOM.

“On the mobile front, the service will offer apps for iPads, iPhones and a variety of Android devices, but iOS users will apparently not be able to use AirPlay to watch games on Apple TVs.”

NFLSundayTicket.TV will become available in September.
