Those of you who don't want DirecTV, go out and buy a PS3, then shell out another 340 for Sunday Ticket.

Could coincide with the PS3 price drop. The base model dropped from $299 to $249.

I'm gonna be in a bar watching every Chiefs game, unable to unglue my eyes. The NFL rewind is actually better, if I want to watch a game or a portion of a game later. Or, if I somehow can't be in my bar on Sunday to watch the Chiefs.

Except both this and sunday ticket are almost completely worthless. This because the game is only available the night of the game and sunday ticket because they don't allow you to time shift the game online. Complete bullshit. I used to love waking up an hour or so into the game and being able to fast forward through the commercials. Without the ability to timeshift the game why not just get one of the 'free' feeds?

You used to be able to, but they opened it up last year. DirectTV realized they are mostly fucked and they have to monetize the properties they have. So they give sunday ticket to subscribers free or heavily discounted and offer it full price to non subscribers. But again without the ability to pause or timeshift the program the nfl to go is worthless.

While Cocks lovers like you can keep their cable TV and now get Sunday Ticket, I wonder how much this hurts DirecTV now that that incentive is gone?

I made the switch to DirecTV JUST for Sunday Ticket. With this, you don't really need their Sat service anymore.

It's not going to hurt DTV at all. It's $340 to get it without their service. They're not going to bend on that price like they do for their current subscribers. If anything....it's going to make them more money.

why cant you get satellite at your apartment?

If Directv wont do the install or your landlord is giving you problems about getting it installed...call a local retailer to try and do the installation.

Chances are, they WILL get it done if its at all possible.

By rule of the FCC a landlord cannot keep a tennant from getting any type of communication service "just because" ...now, they CAN say that you cant mound it permanently to their building and no holes can be drilled, but there are ways around doing those things like doing a flat cable through window/s and using a pole mount.tripod or non penetrating roof mount to get the installation done.

If you have any questions, just pm me.

In Arizona....our landlord said that we couldn't mount it to any part of the building. The DirectTV installer brought out a 75 lb metal plate that he attached it to and that plate sat on the roof.

Just giving another option.

Hehe. Yep.

Back when i was in an apartment I did it. I grabbed two poles, welded them at a 90 degree and created a cement base to mount it in. Planted the thing on my patio so it went up and over the railing and outward facing the sky.

No holes. Not mounted on their building and out of sight unless you're coming from the back of the building.

My bad they allow satellite but my location prevents it as there is no clear line of site to the southeast or whichever way the signal is. The only other option was to mount it on the roof of the complex and the landlord said no to that. I'll gladly pay the 340 is this legit? How do I go about it, just call dtv?

thats a non penetrating roof mount.

They arent that heavy, but they require cinder blocks to keep it from moving when the wind is strong. After the blocks are put in it, it is probably at least that heavy.

Ive been an installer and owned mmy own company as a Directv subcontractor at one point and employed 17 installers under me and one thing for sure is there is almost ALWAYS a way to get it done.

Local offices usually have a lot of rookie installers working for them and they might not have the knowledge required to get it done sometimes....retailers usually employ more experienced installers and have a lot more riding on getting the install done, so they will usually get it done if the local big office cant.

If you arent gonna have cable internet, you probably dont need to have the dish near your actual apartment...it would most likely go near the utility area of the complex.

Landlords usually like that idea as well, due to the fact they can have one dish service the entire building. We call it a "community dish" and do it that way.

It would be very very unlikely a company other than a retailer would do something like that though.

If that is not an option, the dish can usually be "post pounded" on the south side of the building and the line tucked under the vinal siding to get to your unit so it is unnoticable and no holes are drilled....the installer would need to bring at least one flat cable though.

Just more options for ya to keep the bill low.

If I can help, holla at a playa when you see him on Chiefs Planet.

Ah. Yes, you'd most likely need to get a wireless router unless 1) your TV is near your modem and 2) your modem has space for another device (other than your computer) to be plugged into.

Sorry clarification, it is my understanding that it's available anytime after that day, but not available that day even the game is over. So just to clarify it would be available anytime after the day of the game.

For me it would be useful if it was available as soon as the game was over. Then I would watch it and be happy, with the ability to pause etc. But having to wait till midnight after the game is over makes it not valuable to me.

The way MLB.TV works is at the end of the game, it processes for about an hour or 2, then its put up to be viewed anytime. Its probably going to be similar to that.

Short answer: no. That's how they control it to some extent. You can have 100 people who all have the username and password, but only one device can be watching (anything) at a time. That doesn't cover TV vs. "to go," but it does cover laptops vs. phones/tablets.

Yeah I'm leaning toward selling the xbox, buying a PS3 and paying the $340. I can't stand streaming anymore and I want a year of watching it on tv like back in KC. Our new place that we'll be moving into in January is satellite ready so sweetness for next year too.

The guy I just talked to said I should be fine because it's not wireless it's through the ethernet so the connection would be at its finest. The quality may not be that good, but it won't be bad either. People around here game online and our is only at 1.5 megs max so I'm sure it wouldn't be bad either, or I hope not.

It won't buffer or anything will it? It's impossible to buffer it's already downloaded I think.
It's a live streaming broadcast, it could buffer a bit.

Last year, you could pick between high, medium, or low settings, so if it was buffering a lot, you could just reduce the bitrate.

If I remember right the guy at PS3 customer service said the PS3 chooses which setting (high, low or medium) fits your connection automatically now.

There was an update to PS3 knowledge base concerning Sunday Ticket (http://us.playstation.com/support/answer/index.htm?a_id=2481), and shortly afterwards it was taken down, but here's the update:

Beginning September 6, 2011 DIRECTV NFL Sunday Ticket will be available on the PlayStation 3. Viewers who do not currently have access to DIRECTV will be able to subscribe to NFL Sunday Ticket at the season price of $339.95. Existing DIRECTV customers can access the service on their PS3 for an additional $50 and use the PS3 as an additional receiver in their home.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: How do I get Sunday Ticket on my PS3? How much does it cost?
A: The Sunday Ticket app will be available for download from the PSN Store on September 6 and programming begins September 11. NFL Sunday Ticket at the season price of $339.95.

Q: Do I need to be a DIRECTV subscriber to get the Sunday Ticket?
A: You DO NOT need DIRECTV to access NFL Sunday Ticket, though existing DIRECTV customers can access the service on their PS3 for an additional $50 and use the PS3 as an additional receiver in their home.

Q: How do I use DIRECTV NFL Sunday Ticket on PS3?
A: Download the app from the PSN Store on or after September 6. Launch the app and log-in. That's it!

At the left of the display, get real-time game status including game time and score from each game chip. A colored arrow at the bottom of each game chip provides current field position at a glance. Arrows turn green for scoring plays, red for red zone, and blue for all other field positions.

Select any game chip to get a menu of available features including: Live Streaming Video of NFL Sunday Ticket game, RED ZONEŽ Channel, Video Highlights, Game and Player Stats, Standings and Full Season Schedule.

While live streaming video and highlights are only available for Sunday Ticket games, users can view player and game stats for any game each week. When viewing stats and highlights, use the L2 and R2 triggers to quickly scroll through every matchup.

Each week, highlights are accessible until 8:15 ET on Sunday and game results and stats are accessible through Wednesday.

Q: Is DIRECTV NFL Sunday Ticket available outside of the US?
A: DIRECTV NFL Sunday Ticket is only available to customers within the 50 United States.

Q: Why can't I see some games on the Application? What's a blackout?
A: Currently, DIRECTV NFL Sunday Ticket has to enforce blackout rules as required by the NFL. These rules include applying blackout rules to those areas where the local team hasn't sold out within a certain time. Another rule is to blackout the game(s) being shown on the customer's local affiliate(s) (i.e. Fox and CBS). This include Sunday night, Monday night, and Thursday night games.

Q: Can I use my NFL Sunday Ticket on another PlayStation 3 system?
A: Yes, your NFL Sunday Ticket Service for the PlayStation 3 system follows your PlayStation Network account wherever you go. You can login to different PlayStation 3 systems (only one at a time), however, you are bound by the limit of the number of units that your PSN Account can be authenticated with.

Q: How can I get the best possible service from the application?
A: To get the best possible quality of NFL Sunday Ticket, you need a good and dependable broadband connection. Test the speed of your connection with DSL Reports Speed Test. If you are receiving over 700kbps per second down from your provider, then you should be able to see all video content at the High setting.

Q: I purchased a DIRECTV NFL Sunday Ticket subscription through Sony. Can I watch live games on my computer, iPad or mobile phone?
A: You will need full DIRECTV service with an NFL Sunday Ticket and To-Go subscription to watch live video and video highlights on your computer, iPad, or mobile phone. More details are available at directv.com/nfl.

Q: What if I try to watch video but don't have a high broadband connection?
A: Unfortunately, you will not have much success watching live video, but you can see scores and statistics for the games along with seeing highlights (although the highlights will take some time to play out).

Q: What if my video and audio are not playing smoothly?
A: If your video service is not working well, it could be the result of a loose physical connection or unstable wireless connectivity, so it's always a good idea to check your connections.

If you are still experiencing difficulty, the problem might be caused by high traffic on your local network or ISP (Internet Service Provider) or your bandwidth may be being used by another application. Downloading large files or using peer-to-peer applications while watching video, for example, may prevent you from being able to receive enough data to maintain a constant video stream.

Your viewing experience will be affected if our servers are unable to deliver data to your computer quickly enough because of network congestion on your connection. Turn off any other programs that are sharing your connection like other browser windows and email programs. You might also try restarting the computer to close other programs that may be running in the background.

Q: What username and password do I use to sign in?
A: Please use your directv.com username and password to sign in. If you don't have a DIRECTV username and password, please create your account online today.
If you forgot your password you can retrieve it at any time on directv.com. Click "sign in" at the top left hand corner. On the "Sign in or Create Account" page, enter your email address, then click Forgot Password.
Note that to access NFL Sunday Ticket To-Go, your account must be in good standing.

Why would an existing DTV customer need to spend an additional $50 to watch ST on the PS3?

Yeah, I hope they don't screw this up. I have a ton of trees around the house that make DirecTV very marginal at my house. My dish is installed on a pole on top of my chimney. When I tried to up grade to HD a few years ago, they were not able to install the larger dish. So I can't upgrade to HD as long as I'm married to DirecTV to get Sunday Ticket. If this works, in the next year or two I'll drop DirecTV and go the PS-3 and cable route, even if it ends up being more expensive.

The only benefit I could see from this is, If there is bad weather in the area which would disrupt the satelite signal but not effect the stream from your PS3. So you still could catch the game.

Kickoff the NFL Season on PS3 with the NFL SUNDAY TICKET App, Available Today on PlayStation Network



We recently announced our partnership with DIRECTV to bring their most popular sports subscription service, NFL SUNDAY TICKET, directly to you via your PlayStation 3. Starting later today, you can access the direct link in the My Channels category under the TV/Video Services icon on the XMB (XrossMediaBar) or head over to the media category of the PlayStation Store to download the app in anticipation of the new 2011 NFL season.

This Sunday, PS3 owners without access to DIRECTV will be able to live stream every out-of-market Sunday NFL game on their PS3 with a subscription to NFL SUNDAY TICKET. You’ll be able to enhance your NFL experience with live multi-game scoreboards and field position trackers, which also allow you to access highlights, stats, standings and schedules, as well as the Red Zone Channel, which gives you live coverage of Sunday’s most exciting moments. The subscription for the 2011 season can be purchased directly through the app for $339.95. Existing subscribers can use the PS3 as an additional receiver in their home, as part of their NFL SUNDAY TICKET To-Go package, which is purchased through DIRECTV.

Check out the video to see how the app works on PS3:

It has nothing to do with the PS3 specifically. It costs the extra $50 for NFLST subscribers to get the "to go" version, which allows internet streaming. Along with the PS3, you can also watch using any old computer and smartphones. It's been that way for quite a while now.

High (>= 1.4 Mbps)
Medium (0.8 Mbps - 1.4 Mbps)
Low (<= 0.8 Mbps)

So I have no idea where the 700 kbps number came from. My understanding is that it scales up or down based on your connection (like Netflix) and tops out at 3 Mbps.

I hope they up the quality at some point. Those are settings when DSL first came out. I have Comcast at 20+Mbps. Netflix looks amazing in HD so hopefully it looks comparable, although I don't know what the settings are for streaming Netflix in HD.

I just hope the servers don't crash and burn like they did last year for the first two weeks. At some points you couldn't watch any streams for an hour or more, which is insanely unacceptable for the price you are paying. But it's DTV, I shouldn't expect much more.

This is why you buy game consoles for gaming, not for watching TV. Maybe at some point in the future stuff like this will be more viable and affordable.

Consoles systems are basically PC's now Grandpa. Ive got an Atari 2600 ill sell ya.

Maybe they were just having a problem with the Redzone Channel because I just turned on the Chiefs game and have had no issues so far. It honestly looks just like it would if I was watching it on my local CBS affiliate.

I understand how frustrating this must be and I apologize for the inconvenience. Please know that both DirectTv and Sony have technicians actively working to improve the quality of the feed to give you the best service possible.

I understand this is extremely frustrating, especially on opening day. We are working as quickly as we can to get this issue resolved.

This is all 100% on DTV. The PS3 feed was awful, but I have the ability to stream it through my laptop or my phone as well and 1) couldn't even get logged in on the DTV website to stream on my laptop and 2) the quality on my phone was unwatchable, even on a 4" screen.

This same thing happened last year, and perhaps it's worse this year. Most everybody missed at least the first half of the noon games last year, seems people missed the entire noon games this year.

For what DTV is charging for the service, if they don't offer partial refunds for this week, you would have to think they are walking right into a class action lawsuit. It is false advertising at its finest, in that 1) you couldn't even watch the games and 2) even if you could, the picture quality is a billion times worse than the HD picture that was advertised.

Swanman
09-11-2011, 03:08 PM
I did read somewhere on the DTV forums that someone heard from a rep that refunds would be offered for week 1 but then there were other reports saying there wouldn't be refunds based on feedback from another rep. As usual, the DTV idiots can't even all have the same story.

I believe so. I am screwed because I purchased from Directv to use on my PS3 because I wanted the ability to also stream on my laptop and phone when I wasn't home. Directv is giving some BS line about not being able to issue refunds because we "don't have accounts with Directv" if we only have the online sunday ticket. If they stick by that line of thinking, I hope there is a lawsuit started. You can't take money for services not rendered and use as an excuse that your system isn't able to offer partial refunds.

I had DTV about 7 years back. Really liked it. Comcast had a better deal with higher speeds and good triple package.

Earlier this season I had contemplated getting DTV again since NFLST was free. Then PSN announced it so I went that route.

It is apparent that some have had success with it, but the majority of the folks have the same issues as do I. I looked around the 'Net today and decided it was time to cut my losses. I may look at DTV again next year.

Don't know why I bother since the Chiefs have had 4+ decades of mediocrity. But I have been a fan since they moved from Dallas. Too old to quit now.
