As most are aware of by now, AT&T is in the process of finalizing a deal to purchase DirecTV. As any football fan is also clearly aware of if they’re a DirecTV subscriber, it’s the only place that offers you the chance to watch any NFL game you want every Sunday with the ever popular NFL Sunday Ticket.
However, at the moment, the only way you can take in the Sunday Ticket experience is either in your home where the dish is located, or at a local sports bar that happens to have one as well.
But, there could be some good news on the horizon for those that don’t have DirecTV, but do have AT&T as their mobile service provider.
According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, there is the possibility that should AT&T successfully purchase DirecTV, then they could also make the Sunday Ticket experience available to their customers on their mobile devices, without having to have the dish subscription at all.
Of course, this won’t go off without some hitches.
Verizon, AT&T’s main competitor on the mobile market, just so happens to be the primary sponsor of the National Football League. Should AT&T pull something like this off, then there will be a major stirred caused by the red brand.
Also, the NFL hasn’t even agreed yet to renew the Sunday Ticket package with DirecTV as talks are still ongoing.
Still, the possibility remains that in the very near future, watching any game on Sunday on your cell phone could be a distinct possibility–if you’re an AT&T subscriber, at least.
