Just to add some actual real world experience to the speculation...

The works fine if you already have directv and no sunday ticket. I have had directv for years, got this deal, signed up with the username and code, changed those to something easy to remember, and it works fine. Didn't have to call, sign up, play any games with anyone, nothing. 100% online, easy and it works. If you go to the site and sign in and get an error or cant watch, wait a bit as it takes some time for it to kick in especially if you change username/passwords.

Video quality is not as good as the directv hd broadcast, its softer, has some minor jaggies and a little problem with tearing on horizontal panning, especially when there are stripes in the picture. But its pretty decent.

This works fine with tab casting. An i3 is more than enough cpu, thats a 30% load on my i3 desktop. But with a hardwired gigabit connection and very clean wifi (no other devices using it, close to the router, good wireless throughput on the router) the PQ is even softer, has more jaggies and the sound isn't fully in sync but its not off a lot. Its watchable. The audio on the main tv hooked to the desktop goes out, but the picture continues.

Ask any questions in the thread, I'll keep an eye out as I continue to tinker with it.

- Sklar

Personal Clarification - I have used the Web NFL Ticket last year. In order to be eligible to use the internet package you need to be UNABLE to get DirecTV. The good thing is that this isn't a dead deal for any of you. When you call or sign up for the internet only package DirecTV has you confirm that you are unable to get service at your location, this could have been verified by a **3rd party installer** (directv will not have anything on record from their end since they didn't come out for the assessment, and they certainly won't waste man-hours on coming out to check each person's home). You tell them you attempted to get DirecTV, someone came out and told you that you couldn't get signal based on the way your balcony/patio was facing (if you live in an apartment complex), or you tell them the home you are in is a rented home and your landlord won't allow you to get a satellite on the roof and your trees are too high to put it on a tripod. They will have you confirm that you are unable to get service and will allow you to sign up. I had the REAL issue with my apartment complex but my parents own their home and they used the second issue with the trees and no line of sight for signal. We had ZERO issues and it was a smooth process with no hangups at all.

I hope this helps! Good Luck!!!



""There's been a bit of confusion as to what all this means. Yes, DirecTV is doing the deal because it hopes football fans might ditch their cable provider and sign up with them. But even if you live in an area with DirecTV access, and choose not to subscribe, you may still use the code to watch Sunday Ticket games on your computer, tablet or other mobile device. You don't have to subscribe to DirectTV."

How do you get $45 at BB? I only see $22.50.
Not sure for how long, but BB has been doubling the trade-in value, so $22.50 gets you $45. Mine was in the form of a BB Gift Card, not sure if you can get cash for a trade-in ?

My support ticket to EA to get a new login/pw has not made any progress in over a week. WTF. Anyone have a direct number to get this resolved?

I don't have a direct number, but I'm not sure what you're trying to do...are you trying to change the original to something more usable, or trying to change it back TO the original in the hopes of making the login process "smoother" (not the typing part obviously) ?

FYI ...There are instructions in this thread on how to change the original complicated login and password to something you can remember. There are also indications in this thread that changing it might be one of the reasons why some people are having problems logging in. And there are people like me who changed the login/password and are NOT having issues logging in once we figured out the process..

Anyone having luck selling theirs on eBay? How to protect yourself from shady buyers? I always thought that Paypal protected the buyer more than the seller.

If you send the code through email, make sure you also send it through postal mail, confirm addresses only. Watch out for the new user with 0 feedbacks. Price has dropped a lot for these, many are selling the brand new game at $140. If you want to get the most out of it, sell the code individually for $120 and then trade in the game to best buy for $45 store credit or CL it for $40.

Thank you. If I send the code via email immediately after PayPal payment is confirmed, is there any way I can get screwed? Or should I wait longer?

It's fine, just check for the person feedback, then send it through postal mail the following day. Today is gameday, so they will want it immediately. They could lie and say the code doesn't work, but I doubt anyone with good feedback would do that.

Thanks! It's been ages since I've sold anything on eBay. Not even sure what the fees are. How do you check? and also, how do you only sell to high feedback buyers? I'm worried a n00b buys it and then I get screwed.

Have we always had the silver Highlight boxes popping up in the lower middle of the screen during the games? I never noticed them until today, and now they annoy the shnit out of me, especially when they announce things that have not yet happened in the game I'm watching....one of which was a full minute before the video caught up.

Anyone know how to shut the Highlight popups off ? Thx in advance.

AirPlay works just fine from both my iMac and iPad. Check the Apple forums if you are having issues...
No need. Airplay from iPad does not work (it only streams audio). This has been the case ever since the iOS app came out years ago. I mean it could change by tomorrow morning. But I am highly doubtful. So not to sound like a butt, I am calling BS....

Internet morons dime a dozen. Airplay works just fine from either the iPad or iMac.... I'm enjoying the games...

I have some of these available for anyone. Not free of course, but pm me with offers. I have sold several on Ebay but they have now decided to MC999 me twice so I can't risk relisting there.

pretty disappointed in the quality of the feed , its ok, but not HD, and on a tv screen it looks even worse.

Oh well. Better then nothing at all I guess, and didn't cost much.

You got MC999 for selling the game or the code individually?
