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.

49ers-Cowboys: Everyone stepped up after Nick Bosa's injury, says D.J. Jones and Arik Armstead

It was hard to see San Francisco 49ers pass rusher Nick Bosa down on the field late in the first half of Sunday's playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys. Everyone, including the fans, knows how much the young defensive end means to the 49ers defense. After the team lost Bosa early last season, the pass rush never really got going. Bosa was ruled out with a head injury and will likely enter the concussion protocol this week, ahead of the 49ers' next playoff game—a Divisional Round matchup against the Green Bay Packers. "We were thinking of him, and I'm happy that he'll be OK, and it's not too serious," defensive lineman Arik Armstead said after Sunday's game. "Obviously, we can't wait to get him back. He's a force for us, and I love playing alongside



49ers' DeMeco Ryans hopeful Nick Bosa will be available vs. Packers: 'We definitely need him out there'

The San Francisco 49ers defense is a different beast with pass rusher Nick Bosa anchoring the edge of the defensive line. Unfortunately, Bosa left Sunday's playoff win against the Dallas Cowboys with a head injury. He is currently in the concussion protocol as the team prepares for this weekend's playoff opponent—the Green Bay Packers. The 49ers are at a bit of a disadvantage thanks to the NFL scheduling the Divisional Round playoff match on a Saturday. That means Bosa has one less day to clear the concussion protocol. You can never predict the recovery timeline for head injuries. Concussions impact everyone differently. Defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans' job on Saturday night would be a whole lot easier with Bosa in the lineup. Naturally, he is hopeful

4th Quarter FINAL: San Francisco defeats Dallas 23-17 to advance to the divisional round of the playoffs, where they'll face the Green Bay Packers. With the game on the line, Cowboys DE Randy Gregory commits an unnecessary holding penalty, potentially eliminating any chance of Dallas retaining possession of the ball. On 4th & 11, Dak Prescott is unable to hit Cedrick Wilson, forcing the turnover on downs, giving San Francisco possession up 6. At the 2-minute warning, Dallas has possession of the ball on 3rd & 11, trailing 23-17, with all three of their timeouts. SCORE ALERT: Dak Prescott runs it in on 3rd & Goal for a Dallas touchdown, cutting San Francisco's lead to



ESPN believes these flaws could hurt 49ers on Sunday vs. Cowboys

ESPN writer Bill Barnwell made his playoff predictions all the way to Super Bowl LVI. He has the Kansas City Chiefs topping the Los Angeles Rams 31-24 in the NFL's championship game. The first order of business for the San Francisco 49ers to ensure that isn't the matchup will be to beat the NFC East champion Dallas Cowboys in the opening round of postseason play, which begins this weekend. While many like the 49ers' chances in this matchup, Barnwell isn't sure San Francisco can come out on top. He predicts a 27-14 Dallas win at AT&T Stadium on Sunday. Barnwell admits that the 49ers have a talented roster capable of upsetting any opponent. However, like many playoff teams this year, it is not without flaws. Barnwell doesn't like this matchup for the 49ers as
