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.

4th Quarter FINAL ALERT: The 49ers defeat the Eagles in Week 2 to the tune of 17-11 behind an impressive defensive performance and good clock management on offense. On 3rd & 1 with 2:30 left in the game, Jimmy Garoppolo scrambles for a three-yard gain and a first down, so the 49ers need to just kneel three times to win the game. With four minutes left in the game and the Eagles without any timeouts, they need a stop to get the ball back and have a chance to win. SCORE ALERT: After a 14-yard completion to Dallas Goedert, Jalen Hurts rushes it in for a 1-yard touchdown, and the two-point conversion is completed to make the score 17-11 in favor of San Francisco.

Trey Lance's finger appears to be healing fast enough for him to be ready to play against the Detroit Lions on Sunday, but the 49ers are still taking things one day at a time as they continue to assess his status. Lance has been working his way back to full practice participation after injuring his finger when his hand hit the helmet of a defensive player during the 49ers' preseason finale against the Las Vegas Raiders on August 29. He was seen throwing at practice Thursday without any visible problems after shedding the splint he was wearing days earlier, but the 49ers still listed him as limited during their Thursday injury

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters after today's practice and provided an update on Javon Kinlaw. The second-year defensive tackle has been dealing with a setback in his knee, an injury that occurred on December 20, 2020, against the Dallas Cowboys and forced him to miss the last two games of the season. Kinlaw was officially listed as "doubtful" for Sunday on the team's injury report. With the knee issues continuing to resurface, Shanahan was asked if injured reserve is a possibility for the defensive tackle. "Not yet," the coach responded. "I mean, he's still got a chance to play this week, so we're still trying to decide that. So, not yet." General manager John Lynch didn't sound too optimistic about Kinlaw's
