No Cable? No Satellite? No problem. NFL Sunday Ticket is now available to everyone who has an active internet connection. Those of us who have abandoned our pricey TV packages for Netflix and Hulu long ago finally have a way to watch our favorite teams play on Sundays without going to a local sports bar or crashing on a friend's couch. In addition to flashing the high (yet arguably worth it) price tag, the new service's website reads as follows:
Now you can access live, out-of-market NFL games without a DIRECTV satellite TV account—no matter what team you follow! NFLSUNDAYTICKET.TV lets you stream games on your computer, tablet, phone, or game console. All while keeping up with real-time player stats and your fantasy teams.
$200 is a lot of money to people without excessive disposable income, but compared to the price of actually having a DirecTV account for an entire year this is a steal. Not only that, but people who are on other cable or satellite services like Dish Network, Time Warner, or U-verse finally have a way to watch out of market games that they otherwise would not be able to enjoy without an illegal stream. If you love your team enough, this is a good deal.
What say you, BRB? Are you willing to fork over $200 to watch every Texans road game this year?
