    Sunday Ticket to be available through Playstation 3
    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on August 18, 2011, 10:35 AM EDT

    APDirecTV has decided to throw a bone to NFL fans that can’t get satellite service.

    NFL Sunday Ticket will be available this year through PlayStation 3 for for $339.95. The package is aimed at fans that can’t get DirecTV because of where they live. (I fall into this category in my latest apartment. Damn high rise blocking my southern sky.)

    It’s a great idea, and would be even cooler if DirecTV expanded it by making it available through Tivo and other services. That won’t happen because DirecTV still wants to push people towards getting a dish.

    Current Sunday Ticket subscribers could also get it through PlayStation for an additional $50 through DirecTV To-Go. Hopefully, DirecTV has solved the enormous amount of problems and clunky setup of their online offering from a year ago.

    NFL.com’s Preseason Live is light years better than DirecTV’s 2010 package and shows where this market is headed. For the price DirecTV is charging, they need to catch up. Either way, it’s a pretty cool time to be an NFL fan and it’s only going to get better.

    And Sony kept it down for months.

    Someone posted this in the NFL thread (I think) and its insanely more expensive to purchase the service through PSN than it would be to get it while it was a pay service with DirecTV. I guess there will be someone out there ordering it.

    Nvm. It was a comparison to the MLB package. Either way it is still a lot of cash but if you cant get your favorite team I guess you can justify it.

    They'll cut that price in half if you bitch about it. My wife called in to cancel ours for this year (it was free last year) and they came down to like $40 a month before she told them to fuck off completely. (It's normally like $75/mo)

    It was me and you misread it. The package is $340 which is what it cost on Directv or ps3. If you already have the package on Directv but want it on your ps3 as well you need to pay another $50.

    $340 is a ridiculous price. I would never pay that much for 17 weeks of programing.

    I think it depends on whether you are more a fan of your "home" team or your fantasy football team. I live in Buffalo and am a lifelong Broncos fan, and neither team has given me anything to get excited about in over a decade, so $340 to avoid Joe Buck, root on Arian Foster, and watch some decent Football is a bargain to me.

    That's ridiculous. 80-90% of the games each week STINK. Why would anyone pay that when you can get the redzone channel for around $5/month extra through the cable company.

    Depends on what cable company you got. Otherwise you're just stuck with 3-4 games weekly.

    Having said that, I wouldn't shell out that much money for the PS3 and the Sunday Ticket. and I'm a Redskins fan who lives in NYC.

    Not such a bad price when you split it with 4 other people. Receivers work in any home that has a dish
