The NFL has officially made the jump from legally only available through television providers to the Internet. NFL Sunday Ticket, still available through DirecTV, is heading to computers, mobile devices and game consoles.
The offer is only good for folks who do not subscribe to DirecTV. Those customers will have to stick to basics.
Packages start at $199.99 and scale up to $329.99. Here’s the chart DirecTV provides.
The current list of compatible consoles features only the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. It also works on most Android and iOS devices. No word was given for Blackberry or Windows Phone users.
As a cord cutter, it’s nice to see the NFL join the likes of the MLB and NHL in making their sports available by means other than shady, second-hand livestream sites. I’m not sure if I’m willing to pay $199.99 for out-of-market games, though.
