If you’re an NFL fan who would like to cut the cord and drop your satellite TV subscription, but you don’t want to miss out on NFL Sunday Ticket, here’s some good news for you. It looks as if DirecTV will be offering the popular football package to iOS and Mac users without requiring subscribing to a satellite programming package.
No official announcement has been made, but a promotional page for the new offering has appeared at NFLSundayTicket.tv. The company says viewing will be limited to out-of-market games when it begins on Sept. 7, but the popular Red Zone channel is included. AppleInsider was first tipped to the page by reader Sean.
“Now you can access live, out-of-market NFL games without a DIRECTV satellite TV account—no matter what team you follow,” the site reads. “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.”
There are three subscription levels available, starting at a $199.99 level that gives access to the action via the Sunday Ticket app on mobile devices and computers. If you want to watch the action on your HDTV via your gaming console, that will run you $239.99 for the season. The top $329.99 tier gives you everything in both lower tiers, plus adds access to the Red Zone and Fantasy Zone channels.
There’s no information available yet as to whether iOS device users will be able to stream games to their HDTV via Apple’s AirPlay technology. However, current versions of the Sunday Ticket app are not AirPlay enabled.
