One of the best NFL viewing packages in NFL Sunday Ticket, but has been limited to DirecTV users. That means users of another service were out of luck, but it looks like that is about to change.
According to NFL Sunday Ticket’s website, the package will no be available to anyone regardless of whether they have a satellite dish or not. You can sign up for a package and stream the games on your electronic devices, including laptops, mobile devices and gaming consoles based on the package you sign up for.
With the package you get every out-of-market game, DirecTV’s Fantasy Zone and the Red Zone Channel.
The largest package is their “Max” package, which starts at $329.99 and allows you to view on all the devices previously listed. The “Console” package allows you to watch on just your gaming console at $239.99. For the “Digital” package you get laptop and mobile devices.
Unfortunately only the “Max” package gets DirecTV’s Fantasy Zone and the Red Zone Channel. Still, for those fans displaced from the city of their teams this isn’t a bad deal. With the way streaming technology has improved games can stream pretty clearly, of course depending on your internet package.
[UPDATE:] Apparently it is only available to certain fans in certain areas. When I tried to sign up, the site said I was ‘ineligible.’ I live in Dallas and assume it is because DirecTV is available to me if I were to chose it as my service provider.
Reading the fine print at the bottom of the site and you get this message.
