NFL Sunday Ticket live online will not be available for everyone

Jul 16, 2014 at 3:53 PM--


News is spreading via numerous media outlets that NFL Sunday Ticket live online will become available as a stand alone product, enabling those without DirecTV satellite service to purchase the plan and watch NFL games on phones, tablets, game systems and other similar devices.



The promotional page that was discovered by AppleInsider stated "Stream NFL Sunday Ticket live online. No satellite required!" It sounds too good to be true and, for many, it may be. Before you dump your DirecTV service, it appears that only certain people will be eligible.

Engadget poked through the FAQ for the promotion and it states it's only for people in "select areas, residence types, and enrolled in select universities."

To see if you are eligible, you need to fill out an online form that will check your address to see if you are indeed eligible.

Engadget tested the form and determined the following:

If you live in an apartment building where satellite dishes are banned, or are in college, you'll be offered a streaming package of your liking -- the same as was available in years past, just on a few more devices now. But if you live in a house or somewhere DirecTV thinks it can get you as a potential customer? You're out of luck, and we wouldn't be surprised if a sign-up fliers will be headed your way. I gave it a shot and unsurprisingly found my current address (a home) was ineligible, while my previous address (an apartment) was eligible.

For those that are not eligible for the stand alone product, you will likely still need DirecTV service.

Kyle Shanahan: Jimmy Garoppolo working toward next situation, 49ers not limiting him

Wednesday was an interesting sight at San Francisco 49ers practice. While you might think all of the attention would be on the field with the team practicing, many fans were interested in one player who has not been practicing—Jimmy Garoppolo. The quarterback was even seen interacting with teammates and fans. That shows you what Garoppolo has meant to the 49ers and the fanbase over the years. The Garoppolo chapter is nearing an end. Second-year quarterback Trey Lance has taken over as the team's starting quarterback. San Francisco has been trying to trade Garoppolo all offseason. Of course, the veteran undergoing shoulder surgery on March 8 complicated things, ending trade talks at the time. As the 49ers await a trade situation to develop, Garoppolo remains



Kyle Shanahan: 49ers playbook not changing for Trey Lance; Jauan Jennings tough to cover

Some expect the San Francisco 49ers offense to evolve with second-year quarterback Trey Lance at the helm. While that is probably true, it will not be by design. There won't be a drastic change to the playbook. Instead, Lance can extend plays and potentially get the football further down the field for some explosive plays. Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters before Saturday's practice and was asked about the playbook. Is he considering changing it to take advantage of Lance's unique athleticism? "Not really at all," Shanahan responded. "I mean, you do the same stuff, and you just got a couple of more elements. When you have the threat of a running quarterback, that can change defenses. And when you see how that changes them, then you adjust to

How does Samuel's deal rank against other receivers who earned extensions this offseason, especially the other fourth-year receivers who received deals as well? Fellow fourth-year receivers A.J. Brown, D.K. Metcalf, and Terry McLaurin all signed extensions
