Pretty sure it doesn't, but does anybody know for sure whether or not NFL Sunday Ticket covers NFL.com games? Just wondering because of the Thanksgiving game, when I always seem to be stuck in a "non-NFL.com" having house. Mobile would solve this problem.

Important Info:
Yes, blackout rules are enforced. Due to NFL broadcast restrictions, some games will be unavailable on NFL SUNDAY TICKET™ To-Go based on your ZIP code. However, you will still be able to access statistics and highlights for those games.

For the time being, if you are traveling, you will be able to watch those games online that you would be able to watch online at home.

Streaming is only available for NFL SUNDAY TICKET™ To-Go games. Sunday night, Monday, Thursday, and Saturday games are not part of NFL SUNDAY TICKET™ To-Go and therefore not eligible for streaming.

Well working in video, HD quality may not mean HD quality. But really I'd do this in a heart beat if they had a DVR type service where I could start the game and fast forward till live. Simply put that's what I loved when I had my directv. I'd wake up an hour or so into the game, plop down and watch my leasure. Now I'd probably not get enoug value out of it. Hahah waking up at 10am each sunday is too unlikely:D

really you think so?

if you watch one game a week it's ~$22 a game...that's NOT bad....if you watch two it's $11. I'd do it except I'd miss to much of games for not waking up in time. Hence the need for a DVR which directv mobile doesn't let you do.

You know HDMI sends audio too, right?

FWIW, I had this set up last year so I could watch whatever game was on regular TV on one TV, and DirecTV whatever game I wanted on the other TV. It worked out well.

The one on the left is the DirecTV (from my laptop) and its in SD quality.

Sort of.

This service costs $50 if you already have NFL Sunday Ticket.

Last year it was free if you already had NFL Sunday Ticket.

I paid someone $100 to let me use their internet access for the whole season, so they gave me their username and password.

Its the same service, now you can just buy it without being a DirecTV customer.

I had access to DTV Sunday Ticket on my laptop last year. I had a laptop that had an HDMI drive and I streamed it to my HD television. It wasn't shit. What I paid for it was well worth it, but the quality was nowhere near worth $350. Comcast cable in Seattle with 16mb speed and it wasn't shit. I would NEVER pay that kind of money for it. Streaming it online isn't far enough off to pay that kind of money for it.

I will probably end up doing it, even at the high price. I had DTV and Sunday Ticket for years but recently moved and switched to Comcast, as my southern exposure in the new house is littered with tall, mature trees. So far I like Comcast but I was going to miss the Ticket, now I can still get it so it's a win/win. I will probably hook it up via hdmi to my tv and use a wireless mouse to change games on the laptop.

It's a steep price, but being in the Chicago suburbs it was going to get expensive going to sports bars almost every weekend to watch the Chiefs. Plus, I like the comfort of my home to watch games.

DaKCMan AP
09-08-2010, 07:57 AM
I paid $50 for 4 weeks of preseason (although that was On Demand which rocked) so $350 for 17 weeks of real football isn't that steep to me. The Chiefs game are almost never on in Tampa so unless I go to a bar or find an online stream I'm SOL.

I guess it all depends upon an individual's circumstances, but $350 for the NFL season isn't a steep price for me.

As for the price, I think it's easy for those of you who get the Chiefs' games for free every week to balk at the price. When it's literally your only option to get to watch the Chiefs, it seems much more reasonable. Still expensive as hell, but not necessarily unreasonable.

Saulbadguy
09-08-2010, 09:09 AM
There is actually some pretty good discussion going on national sports talk radio about declining attendance at NFL games. Unlike normal declines in attendance, this is not due to decreased interest, but due to factors such as the economy, rising costs to attend games, and the vast majority of options and features that make staying at home a better gameday experience.

For the "casual" fan - what sounds better? Driving 30 minutes to an hour to pay $22 to park, anywhere from $35-100+ for a ticket, $8 for a beer, $5 for a hotdog, all to watch "only" 1 game compared to going to a sports bar, or just staying at home, and watching multiple games?

Exactly. When you're out of market you have no other options except to go to a sports bar. At $20/week for all games, it's not that bad.
