DIRECTV NFL Sunday Ticket on PlayStation 3 features:

  • At least they’re not charging
    At least they’re not charging any more than on DirecTV. The only difference is the monthly charge is $66.something for 5 months for DirecTV. I love football, but $340 is way too steep.

  • DirecTV did a similar thing

    DirecTV did a similar thing with the UFC.  For DTV to carry UFC PPV events, UFC had to agree not to offer the event for less money anywhere else.  Seems that DTV is following their own logic by not undervaluing their own product.

    I used to wonder how people justified the expense for NFL or NHL packages like this…  until I started watching UFC events for $54.95/month.  Now, I think those guys have the better deal!  But, at least I’m only watching these events once a month.

  • My friend gets Sunday Ticket
    My friend gets Sunday Ticket on DirecTV. When he lived in Michigan he had season tickets to the Lions. I’m not sure how much he paid, but the cheapest season tickets are $400 per seat. Now that he lives in California the only way he can watch the Lions guaranteed is with Sunday Ticket. It’s at least $60 less than what he was paying for 1 season seat. That’s how he justifies it. I imagine if I were in the same boat I would do the same thing.

  • If you are an out of town fan

    If you are an out of town fan it isn’t too bad of a deal because it’s just over $20 a week for the entire season.  Heck if you take your girlfriend to a game and get a decent seat you are spending $340 when it is all said and done to go to one game. 

    This is the first year since 2001 that I won’t have the NFL Sunday Ticket and I am worried that not being able to watch whatever game that I want on any given Sunday is gonna drive me nuts.  I did quit fantasy football this year so it should be easier because now I don’t have to watch the Seahawks vs the Bears only because I have a kicker and a Wide Receiver playing in a game I otherwise wouldn’t care about.

    Hopefully someday the NFL will do what MLB did and offer every game online.  The Boxee app for MLB Extra innings is awesome because now I can just get to the games without having to launch a browser on my HTPC.  Heck, I am listening to last nights Reds / Cubs game at work right now 🙂

    For the life of me, I just can’t understand why it’s like 3 times the cost of the comparable MLB.tv subscription. It’s like having a second cable bill for 4 months.

      For the same reason I pay 54.95/month for UFC events…  stupidity.  I’m dumb enough to pay that price, so they’re happy enough to take the money off my hands!

      If MLB thought they could squeeze that much out of their fans, they would.

    I love the Lion’s and the ability to watch it when my dad in Michigan is watching would be cool, but I don’t think the wife thinks it is 84.99/month cool…

      I am a man who understands the difference between “cool” and “wife cool”. And I agree that it falls under the former but not the latter.

      Wouldn’t a slingbox or other place shifting solution solve this for you?  Unless your dad doesn’t have high speed internet.

      This was the closest I could find to an answer:

      A Sony rep. mentioned that the hd stream for the ps3 will be 3mbps which I and many others feel is quite low and will provide a poor picture.

  • I have been reading about the
    I have been reading about the NFL Sunday Ticket package on the PS3 for about two weeks now, and I have to say I am totally fed up with all the crying and whining about the price. PEOPLE, IF YOU DON’T WANT TO PAY FOR IT, THEN DON’T PAY FOR IT!!! NO ONE IS MAKING YOU!!!!
    thank you

      I think everyone is very much aware of that option.  That doesn’t mean they have to like the price, though.  Seems to me that most of the people around here were comparing it to something else and, overall, justifying it at least in their own mind.  I thought the discussion was quite civilized and calm prior to your post.

      No, I’ll keep doing what I want to do regardless of whether it bothers you.
