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.

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."

I am confused here. So if you don't have DirecTV, but can get it, they won't give you the option 3, you will get option 1, but you have to get DirecTV?

Doesn't sound like a good deal if that is the case, you can get Sunday Ticket free anyway if you are with DirecTV

Buying the game gives you NFL Sunday Ticket for 17 seasons, plus possible other discount for services with DirecTV.
I'm thinking that is false & that this is just a way to get new Directv subs...kinda like they always offer it free for the first year to new subscribers anyway.

You could always just tell them your landlord won't allow DirecTV service.

So for myself, DirecTv has been to my house and said I can not have it since there is no line of sight, also had a supervisor come out and same result. What I'm understanding then is that this will be perfect for someone like me?

for the online only service, what does it mean "unable to receive DTV"? I don't want DirectTV but my house can probably get the signal.
I'm in the same boat. I'd jump all over this if i could get a clear understanding of what "eligible fans" is defined as.

How do they know which code to give you, I figure they would just look at your address and decide for you.

So I have read through all of the notes you guys have here and am trying to understand if I can make this work. My dad has DTV, but I have TWC. Can I use the code on his account and then simply use his account information to stream at my house, via a tablet or PS3?

Thanks in advance!

Quote from Flickertails View Post :
As a current subscriber I get nothing with this deal except an overpriced video game. And from what i've seen around the web the fine print on the trial is 2 years with 1 free. So you are still paying $300 for it.
Exactly. This is identical to their 'new customer' deal they've been running which means you are actually getting nothing of benefit in this sale. You'd get the same sale 1) buying Madden without the promo, and 2) signing up for DTV and getting their Sunday Ticket 1-for-2 years promo. You are ABSOLUTELY locked in for the second year at full price, no discounts.

So, the end cost of this 'deal' is about $400 - $550 for a game and two years of Sunday Ticket (depending on when you jump on for the second year's cost).

What happens if you have DirecTV, but no Sunday ticket? Good deal if they still give you the 10$ off and Sunday Ticket.
