This announcement from DIRECTV and PlayStation is good news for all football fans. DIRECTV's NFL Sunday Ticket is coming to PlayStation 3 in just 3 days. If you are a current DIRECTV subscriber with the NFL Sunday Ticket Max, you will have unlimited, free access to the PS3 application and all of the game streaming you could want. You will also get access to the Red Zone Channel included. If you like to see the scoring action from the field, this channel is for you.
If you are a cord cutter or want to see out of market games from back home, don't worry - you can gain access to the service as well. For $299.95, you too can access every out of market game through your PS3. This service, like so many on the PS3, streams in full HD for all users, whether a DIRECTV customer or not.
If you're a fantasy football fan, there are features for you as well. The app provides live stats to help you plan your team so you can beat your friends. If you play through NFL.com, you also have the ability to directly keep track of your team in real-time right on your TV without having to leave your game.
This is a big deal for anyone who is majorly into the NFL, especially for non-DIRECTV customers. For example, I live in an apartment facing the wrong direction and couldn't get DIRECTV if I wanted to and our cable provider doesn't even offer the NFL Network, so there is little chance of seeing anything that is out of market. For the normal price of Sunday Ticket, I could get the package without having to move. It is a good thing.
