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.

Making a choice for the 49ers in Sunday's NFL Network live draft didn't seem to come easy for Steve Mariucci, but when the time came for him to put on the GM hat for his former team, he made the decision many fans hope to see come to fruition when the real draft gets underway Thursday night. Mariucci was a natural fit to make the call at pick three in the NFL Network's draft, which featured 32 different personalities making selections for the 32 NFL teams. Mariucci, who was the head coach in San Francisco from 1997 to 2002 and is now an analyst for the NFL Network, says his choice would be Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields instead of Alabama quarterback Mac Jones and North Dakota State quarterback Trey Lance. "I'm going to take Justin Fields," Mariucci said.

Mac Jones is a very different quarterback compared to other top prospects like Trey Lance or Justin Fields. If analysts are to be believed, Jones may very well be the No. 3 overall pick by the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday night. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch spoke for 30 minutes on Monday. That led to media and fan analysis of what Shanahan told reporters, with everyone deciphering every word, hoping to discover hints of which quarterback the coach prefers. Scott Pioli, the former assistant general manager for the Falcons, spent two seasons in Atlanta with Shanahan and may have some good insight into what the coach seeks in a signal-caller.
