A quick recap: Yesterday, news broke that DirecTV, for the first time ever, would be offering NFL Sunday Ticket to everyone. For $199, anyone could stream through their Apple device, and for a bit more money, people could stream through their gaming console. However, upon clicking on the actual offer, it was discovered that only some areas were eligible for this new service. Turns out, the idea that NFL Sunday Ticket is being offered to everyone is entirely false. Those who can’t get DirecTV where they live are eligible to stream the games without a subscription. But, if you are technically able to buy a DirecTV subscription, you can’t purchase this standalone service. From Multichannel’s article: DirecTV confirmed that policies governing who can or can’t qualify for its unbundled, streaming-only Ticket option remains generally unchanged. DirecTV began to push the broadband version of Ticket back in 2009, first testing it in Manhattan for $350, then expanding access to consumers in other markets who qualified for it.   “If you can get DirecTV, you are not eligible for this product, but if you can’t get DirecTV, then you are eligible for this product,” a spokeswoman said via email, noting that DirecTV runs a database that helps the company to determine whether a consumer can get DirecTV service.” If you want to find out if you qualify for the standalone NFL Sunday Ticket service, go here. Good luck. [multichannel] Follow Sean Wagner-McGough on Twitter @seanjwagner Article found on: Next Impulse Sports
