Good news for some people who can't get DirecTV or are overseas.


The new arrangement with DirecTV also will allow customers who canít get the Sunday Ticket package via satellite to purchase it for viewing over the Internet. This could unleash a flood of purchases from Americans living overseas, and/or from fans in other countries.

Can't you already watch the games on the net if you live internationally via NFL Game Pass?

So how about us fans that don't live overseas and can't get direct TV because they live in a condo or apartment

This deal sucks ballz. The Nfl should have allowed NFL packages to be available on digital cable as well as satellite providers. They would make a lot more money and allow more people to subscribe. I don't want satellite. I hate exclusive deals.

I agree..
If more service providers were able to get the NFL, the price would go down.

Now DTV is going to have us by the balls!

Yes but it depends on the country you live in. But for the most part you are right and for those that know about NFL Game Pass, they would never pay the price for DirectTV

So were allowed to purchase it now? That was one thing I looked into real hard last year. Anyone know what the price might be.

Directv paid a ****load of money to have exclusive rights to selling the Sunday Ticket package. Why would the NFL turn down that money? Obviously the WOULD NOT get more money by selling the rights to it out to other cable and satelite companies. If they would.....then Im sure they would do it. Common sense dude.
