DirectTV will allow cord cutters to sign up for NFL Sunday Ticket
For the NFL fans among our readers this will be great news, according to a promotional page on the DirectTV website, NFL Sunday Ticket will be available as a standalone subscription for the 2014 season.
This is what the site states:
Introducing NFLSUNDAYTICKET.TV. NFL football for all.
Now you can access live, out-of-market NFL games without a DIRECTV satellite TV account–no matter what team you follow! 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.
The cheapest plan will cost $199.99 and allow NFL Sunday Ticket access on computers, tablets, and phones, while a $239.99 console plan also includes console devices. The most expensive plan, Max, will allow access on all devices as well as access to the Red Zone Channel, and access to DirecTV Fantasy Zone, offering live looks at fantasy plays.
Unfortunately it seems as if the subscription free plan may be limited to customers in “select areas, residence types, and enrolled in select universities.” In other words you need to enter you address to see if you are eligible to sign up or not.
