    In addition to baseball and hockey, PS3 owners now have the opportunity to catch football games, streamed live through their console. The PlayStation Blog today announced a partnership with DirecTV to offer the satellite television provider's popular NFL Sunday Ticket service, which allows individuals to view out-of-market football games.

    Existing DirecTV subscribers can access Sunday Ticket on the console for an additional $50 at the start of the season (on top of what they paid for Sunday Ticket, of course) and can use their console as an additional receiver. PS3 users looking to opt into NFL Sunday Ticket without a DirecTV subscription will have to shell out a hefty $339.95. () The PS3 will both show games in HD each week (up to 14) and display DirecTV's Red Zone channel. Or you could just sign up for DirecTV and get NFL Sunday Ticket for free, but then you'd have a bulky satellite dish to deal with.

    Based on comments made to Shacknews by DirecTV's director of public relations Robert Mercer, NFL Sunday Ticket will "at least for this season" be exclusive to PS3. "We just want to work with a single partner this time around to give everyone a great experience," he concluded.

    Wasn't Sunday Ticket $450 last year... so at least it's a price cut :-) $150, $200, I MIGHT consider it only because my team (SF) is on national once or twice a year... not worth $340 though

    eh, $40 for NFL Replay is still a much better deal, I'd actually buy a PS3 if the NFL put Replay on the PS3

    does ESPN3 work on the PS3?

    ESPN3 will work on the PS3 via a streamer like PlayOn but not on its own.

    And if you want to watch the games on your phone, you have to have NFL Ticket then pay 10 dollars to get NFL Sunday Ticket To Go. It's a pretty shitty deal if you ask me. Hockey's season package is probably the cheapest. I don't know why you would want NFL Ticket because there are only 16 games a season and most of the games are on at the same time. And if you have to work on Sunday afternoon then it's pretty much useless.

    can't you sign up as a new customer and get Sunday Ticket for free from DirecTV? my buddy is incredibly pissed about that seeing as he has paid for it for 10 years and isnt eligible.

    Yeah the problem is that my condo association is a bunch of Nazis and they won't let me add a dish on the roof.

    So if I own a copy of the latest Madden game and subscribe to this service I'll be able to control the players with my PS3 controller?

    When the invaders came they brought our greatest fear. Not of them, but of us. They stripped away our hopes of what humanity could be, shined a light on the ugly reality of what we were. We saw that humanity would not stand as one. Those willing to fight would have to stand alone. But still we stood.

    They came in wave after unrelenting wave, barely any attempt to avoid our fire. It was like no matter the death toll it was all just a game to them. Maybe victory was just a second thought to the little bastards. What they wanted was to see the moment when we broke, when we'd see that no matter how desperate our defense they had already won. But still we stood.

    And now the invaders are gone. Seems as though they are forgotten already. What of us that fought and remain? Do we deserve the same fate as the foe we battled?

    I pay around $150-$200 a year for ST and they usually throw in other discounts when I call.

    It sucks that you have to dance the dance with retention every year, but it's definitely worth it.

    Only took 2 calls this year. First dude was a douchebag but Robin was a sweetheart.


    Basically, she gave me ST for free (including mobile-to-go) plus roughly $100 in credits.

    I have Directv but I'll have to pay on Sunday Ticket. Way too much in my opinion. My work schedule blows. I work practically every Sunday unless I request it off so it would be a waste to get it. The only times I get to watch football regularly are when it comes on in prime time or Thanksgiving and Christmas.
