Deal Details

Last Edited by JohanM1228 December 28, 2015 at 04:18 PM
DirecTV has made their 2015 Sunday Ticket streaming site live:

http://nflst.directv.com/

If you sign up for the regular service, at checkout it will give you the benefits of the max package, including streaming to consoles and the red zone channel. YMMV on the free upgrade but is has been confirmed by several different folks. I would screenshot in case you have any issues in the future.

The best deal if you can qualify is the student price, which gives you the Max level package for $99 for the year.

Not a bad deal, but unless DirecTV has improved the quality if their streams and their reliability, the games look like absolute trash. Rarely much better than illegal streaming, and this was with a perfectly acceptable Internet connection. I can't comment on how the console apps look, though, as that wasn't available when I had it.

Conversely, the NFL's Game Pass (available outside the US) surpasses this ten-fold in terms of reliable streaming and quality.

Yes, you must be a verified student on record and your college must be listed in their system.

I have had the service for the last 2 years. Initially on PS3, and then last year on just my laptop/iOS devices.

I found the PS3 and iOS stream far superior to the computer stream. I would get HD quality to the PS3, but laptop always stuttered and had issues. I found the quality and reliability much better than the illegal streams.

Are all the live games not easily accessible through Kodi? Honest question....just purchased a Fire Stick when it dropped in price the other day.

EDIT: Or other workarounds??

Does anyone know if they offer streaming access -- at a discount? -- for current DirecTV customers?

Also...I tried to sign up for the regular service, and there was NO upgrade at checkout. :-( Was I doing something wrong? I would have pulled the trigger with the upgrade, even at the $200 (i.e. non student) price.

I am technically enrolled at one of the Universities they list, but as a grad student. I don't see this as a stipulation anywhere for exclusion, and I certainly don't see how they're verifying that I'm enrolled exactly. Any ideas on this one?

It shows up after payment, at least it did yesterday.

Try to signup and see what happens?

I believe they do have class lists actually, as having a .edu email from a qualifying University alone does not seem to work.

So you're supposed to pay for it, and then cross your fingers you get upgraded? Not such a great deal...not shooting the messenger here; if it happens, that's great, but that seems a little risky.
