    shouldn't be.

    On another note, where do I buy the streaming service from? Linkage?

    this is exactly what I do. Always works

    I love DTVs service. Great HD and 1.5 TB of content space for just two boxes is nice. but because they don't bundle internet like Verizon or the local guy, I end up with an embarrassingly high combined bill when I hear what other people are paying.

    How are other DTVers getting their internet?

    If Verizon ever gets the NFL rights, I will really consider a switch.

    Colorado Dolfan ...dirty drownin' man?

    Only time I've ever had problems with DirecTV was when I wanted to upgrade service...

    Had DTV for 7 years on a single set never had a late payment and wanted to get into HD on 4 sets in the house... When I called to try and get a deal, they were going to charge me for each and every upgrade. Asked to speak with retention and even retention said I was SOL... Cancelled on the spot and it pissed me off that they didn't care about losing a customer that had been loyal for so long as much as they cared about getting the new customer in the door...

    Now I switch between DTV and Dish whenever I need to...

    So for those of you interested... This is what I've found out after a few hours of research, and what led me to pre-ordereing the PS3 Madden for the NFL Ticket.

    - You cannot get the NFL Sunday Ticket for your PS3 without actually having a Directv subscription. I called and confirmed this...
    - You can buy the NFL sunday ticket for 300+ dollars to stream live via computer or mobile device (without a subscription) from Directv IF you can prove to them you cannot install a satellite dish to your home ie appartment or condo restrictions. This requires you to call directv and speak to a representative.
    - From Amazon the first 50,000 copies of Madden 25 Anniversary edition sold for PS3 and XBOX 360 will recieve a code that will get you 1 free year of the NFL ticket streamed to your computer or mobile devices for free. No subscription necessary. The anniversary editions cost $100.00, and the sunday ticket cost 300 hundred... so if you are like me and always buy Madden anyways, this is a no brainer... The NFL Sunday ticket for 40 bucks basically!

    I was able to order Sunday Ticket for the PS3 without Direct TV last year. I plan on doing the same thing this year.

    And this is why Directv gets a big fat F from the BBB... I literally called them yesterday and asked them if I could order the Sunday ticket through my PS3 without having an account and they basically laughed at me. How did you get it? I used my PS3 last year for the ticket but thats because I still had an active Directv account, when you turn the PS3 app on you have to enter your directv online account password... So I dont see how this worked without an account. Not doubting you, just saying they probably lied to me to try to get me to sign back up.

    Also, it would be a couple hundred dollars cheaper for you to order the Madden anniversary edition, you could then sell the madden on ebay and it would make it even cheaper.

    They may have changed their procedures, but I ordered it through the Playstation Network and checked the box that said I can't get satellite. And this was actually two years ago, to clarify.

    Of course you could always just connect your iPad to your HDTV.

    The new NFL contract with DTV says that DTV had to provide Sunday Ticket to non-subscribers starting 2012.

    DTV likely tries to conceal it, but I ordered it last year no problems, and friends ordered it on PS3 no problem.

    DTV usually doesn't make it available until very close to the season. Misleading *******s.

    This may be a stupid question but if you stream Sunday Ticket via an Xbox is there a way to record the game?

    if you want to record onto your pc, yes, a video capture card/device can do that.

    That probably excludes someone like me that would consider dropping DTV if I had a way to get the ticket. I believe DTV has to unavailable to you. I don't know if they check, but being a former subscriber might make it more difficult

    How was the service? Does your internet have to be super-fast?

    I watched all the games last year on my PS3, I have the lowest bandwidth that Fios has, and it was streamed over wifi to the PS3 which is in my basement (router is upstairs in kitchen so its pretty far). I dont remember their being any issues other than a little pixelation every now and again when it was auto adjusting the bitrate.

    Hate the way DTV and Cable companies offer these incredible deals to newbies and extort long-time subscribers. I get the market ploy but imagine the rep they'd get if they gave better deals the longer you subscribed? They'd win in the long run, imo.

    NFL Red Zone is the finest thing on TV since ... well ... ever?

    Incredible. I can't even bring myself to watch a real game while that is on. I'm going to have to likely miss it this fall (bummed) as I'm cutting back or canceling my cable. (Anyone know if that can be 'had' online?)

    If you are a Verizon wireless user, you can get NFL mobile on your phone or tablet for 5 bucks a month and get the redzone channel.

    good luck on deployment, my Navy deployments were in 2003 and 2005, both on carriers. And fortunately both ships had Directv and played the games live for us. Hopefully you will be as fortunate as I.

    I always stream the games, on Sundays I have my big screen on NFL RedZone, my laptop streaming the game, and my iPad on my Fantasy Football team. My wife looks at me like I'm crazy, but during the NFL season, it's the only way to go!

    Times sure have changed. the only TV we had, out to sea, was whatever closed circuit programming they had. Needless to say, most were reruns after reruns. We had no football games which was the worst thing. my dad used to send me the monday sports pages which usuall arrived 10 days later, if we were lucky.

    Lord, have mercy! When I was in, the only source of entertainment was ARFRATS - RADIO!!

    I think I shall just wander off into the sunset muttering to myself! The only TV was in the Chiefs Lounge - and you know what was on that!

    I just ordered the NFL Replay(Rewind, whatever the hell) for $40.

    The games are available right after the last Sunday game is played. If the game is on I record it and watch it late anyway, so this was a no brainer. Plus, their "condensed" option is amazing, it cuts out everything not a play, so no commercials, no huddles, no waiting for timeouts or challenges....just the plays, you can watch a whole game in 30-ish minutes.

    Is that going to be your primary way of watching the games? Have you ever used it before?

    I'm in a sucky situation. I moved over the summer and the local sports bar with directTV is a bit of a drive. Don't really want to spend an hour (total) going there and going home. Nor do I want to spend $260 on Sunday Ticket. Streaming games online (the illegal kind) is out of the question because of ****ty quality. NFL replay sounds interesting... I could see myself watching the better/exciting games over the week. I love watching NFL redzone when the Dolphins aren't on, and NFL replay (with the condensing of the game) sounds cool. The only problem is, there's no way I can contain myself from not checking the score/fantasy. And if we lose, I'm going to pissy and not want to watch it .

    Just the games that don't get shown here. Sometimes they show Jax instead where I am.

    I didn't want to go to a bar nor did I want to spend the money on the Ticket. This was the only solid solution for me. I got it a couple days of go, the Ravens-Broncos game is already on there and has been for a few days. Plus you can watch games as far back as 2009 I believe. You can watch them in broadcast format or even All 22/coach's tape.

    Its great.
