DIRECTV's Playbook Includes New Options For Its Exclusive NFL SUNDAY TICKET™ Service

Popular Sports Subscription Service Available On More Portable Devices; Fans to have On-Screen access to NFL.com Fantasy Football TV App; New Mix Channel to Debut

EL SEGUNDO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- With the NFL season just weeks away from kickoff, DIRECTV is making its exclusive NFL SUNDAY TICKET™ service available to even more fans and has added new features to its most popular sports subscription package that will make the experience of being able to watch every out-of-market game every Sunday better than ever.

DIRECTV customers in the U.S. will continue to enjoy live streaming games with NFL SUNDAY TICKET To-Go on more mobile platforms including for the first time, Motorola's XOOM and Samsung Galaxy tablets; Motorola's Android phones; the iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Blackberry devices with 3G or wifi, Palm Pre/Pixi, and other Droid-branded phones.

New this year, both current DIRECTV NFL SUNDAY TICKET customers and fans who can't get DIRECTV will have the option of watching their favorite team play every Sunday on TV through the PlayStation® 3 computer entertainment system.

Also new this year, DIRECTV is partnering with NFL.com to launch an NFL.com Fantasy Football TV app that will allow NFL.com fantasy players with connected set-top boxes the unprecedented opportunity to view their NFL.com Fantasy Football teams and scores directly on their TV screen while watching every game every Sunday afternoon on DIRECTV.

Fans can view their fantasy lineups and review their head-to-head fantasy scores — all on their TV screen. And by selecting an on-screen "Watch Now" icon assigned to their fantasy player, the viewer can jump to that player's game in progress.

Also this season, fans can tune to a new Mix Channel format for late afternoon games. DIRECTV will continue to display its innovative eight-channel Mix when there is a full schedule of Sunday games, but when there are four or fewer games in the afternoon TV window, DIRECTV will display a new four-channel mix featuring larger video cells for enhanced viewing. For more information on NFL SUNDAY TICKET visit DIRECTV: Sports : NFL SUNDAY TICKET : Overview.

"We are constantly looking at new ways to enhance the NFL viewing experience and create more value for the loyal fans who continue to make this our most popular and dynamic sports subscription service," said Tony Goncalves, senior vice president, Product Management for DIRECTV. "With the growth in mobile and connected consumer electronics devices, we believe it makes sense to enable viewers to watch their favorite team on more of those devices, like gaming consoles, whose users include legions of NFL fans."

With NFL SUNDAY TICKET To-Go, fans will be able to watch their favorite team's out-of-market games every Sunday, no matter where they are. The browser service is available through directv.com, and is compatible with PC and Mac computers. In addition to live streaming video of up to 14 NFL SUNDAY TICKET games every Sunday, the broadband service will also offer DIRECTV's RED ZONE CHANNEL®, game highlights and detailed stats.

Wonder how you can watch the games on a PS3? Just pay the subscription and hook up the PS3 and you're all set?

I am thinking there may be an app like MLB has for there baseball package. I see they are only doing this for those who can't get direct, I understand why they are doing it though

Well I think that covers all the major tablets / phones, except possibly the webOS HP Tablet/Phone. So ToGo customers, or standalone online NFLST customers that can't get DirecTV (and pony up the $340), will be able to watch Sunday Ticket on almost any device.

This is a big win for the people that travel Sundays, or can't get DirecTV but want the NFL package. That is an impressive improvement on the availability of apps for individual devices in time for week one.

I agree 100%, a definite improvement from previous years.

i hope that we can access ST on PS3 if we sub to D*/ST/To Go already. If they want additional money, I won't be paying for it(no point really since I have a receiver hooked up to the same TV). I am intrigued that they list Pixi support for this year, I was very disappointed about a lack of it last year.

Yes, from the article I read on it, Direct TV Sunday Ticket subscribers will need to also subscribe to the To-Go package to get it on the PS3....so if you already do then there shouldn't be any additional charges.

You can do PS3 if you subscribe to DirecTV, NFLST ($324-$336), and ToGo($50).

Or you can do PS3 if you can't get DirecTV (apartment, college, etc) and pay $340.

You cannot pay just $50 and get it, the package for non-DirecTV customers is $340.
