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.

NFL insider Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated isn't sure what's next for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. The one-time face of the San Francisco 49ers franchise signed a three-year, $67.5 million deal with the Las Vegas Raiders last offseason. Less than a year later, it appears his tenure with the Raiders has ended. Garoppolo has been suspended for two games due to a violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, and reports suggest that the Raiders are poised to part ways with the 32-year-old. Garoppolo saw action in just seven games this past season. Breer reports that the Raiders became frustrated with the veteran quarterback for similar reasons as

The San Francisco 49ers would love to keep their Super Bowl roster intact heading into the 2024 season. However, with the team bumping up against the projected salary cap and wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk seeking a contract extension, some difficult choices may be on the horizon. One NFL insider has singled out All-Pro fullback Kyle Juszczyk as a potential casualty as the 49ers attempt to navigate their financial situation. "Juszczyk has been in San Francisco for all seven of Kyle Shanahan's years as coach," Dan Graziano wrote in a recent feature for ESPN. "He is a vital part of the 49ers' offense and surely would be missed. He also turns 33 in April and is scheduled to earn $6.25 million in salary and bonuses in each of the next two seasons. None of that money is

The following video captures Warner's raw emotional response after Greenlaw was carted off the field, revealing the profound anguish experienced by the star linebacker, even as teammate Nick Bosa attempted to console him.
