Following the lead of MLB and the NHL in broadcasting online, DIRECTV has created a new service for 2007 NFL SUNDAY TICKET customers to access their games on the web, but at a price. Besides having the NFL SUNDAY TICKET, subscribers will need to upgrade to the SuperFan service tier for an additional $99.
Thanks to Joel Price for the quick heads-up on this news.
DIRECTV NFL SUNDAY TICKET customers who subscribe to the SuperFan option will have the entire weekly lineup of live NFL SUNDAY TICKET games streamed online to their PC or laptop computer every Sunday during the 2007 NFL regular season through DIRECTV's new NFL SUNDAY TICKET Supercast service.
The question remaining open is how much will this satisfy die-hard NFL fans who haven't yet caved in getting DIRECTV service? If you just wanted to watch games online, you could essentially get all the services and not use the dish but you would be paying a good amount of money. Will the ability to watch the games online be enough for users to make the switch?
If you are outside the U.S. and waant to watch live NFL games online, then you need to look at getting a subscription to NFL Game Pass
. This service is not available in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Bahamas, Bermuda, Antigua, and U.S. Territories.
