For those NFL fans who don't have a satellite television subscription, you may be in luck for the 2014-15 season. DirecTV appears to be ready to offer fans with iOS and Mac devices the opportunity to subscribe to the NFL Sunday Ticket package, even if they don't have the satellite subscription.
There has not been an official announcement confirming the news, but here is what is on NFLSundayTicket.tv:
In the past, NFL Sunday Ticket has been available to those with iOS and Mac products. However, a DirecTV satellite subscription was required. This latest promotion will allow those without a subscription to catch all out-of-market games.
Update: July 18 at 12 p.m. ET
As reader John pointed out, not everyone may be eligible to purchase the package without a subscription.
Here are some more details on the offer, via NFLSundayTicket.tv:
Now you can stream live, out-of-market NFL games on your favorite device without a DIRECTV satellite TV subscription if you live in a select apartment building where DIRECTV service is not available, attend one of these universities, or live in one of the following metro areas: New York City, Philadelphia, or San Francisco.
There is a link to see if you are eligible for the deal.
--End of Update--
Of course, fans will have the option to choose from different NFL Sunday Ticket packages. The packages range from $200 to $330, depending on how much you want included in the package. The most expensive package allows viewers to watch games on computers, mobile devices and gaming consoles.
With the way technology has improved over the years, this is a good way for the product to reach more people.
