I'm sure many will be jazzed by this news.. Nice to see them doing so but let's hope it doesn't turn into a train wreck. The NHL on ps3 sure did by the end of last season. Perhaps circus is the more apt term? :)

Im gonna caution anyone to taking this. I use this currently for MLB and the only reason I stay is that it works on my iPhone as well. The HD quality is not anywhere as good as D* most of the time. With the price being the same as with D* I would recommend just being with D*. I understand a lot of people not with D* would want this. Its not what its cracked up to be. I would be asking about a free preview of this. D* usually gives the first week away to everyone for free. I wonder if the PS3 part is free for week 1 as well.

I wonder how many people will think they can control the games with their PS3? :)

Not really anything new except offering it on the PS3. Last year non-subscribers could get Sunday Ticket To-Go if they can prove they can't get DirecTV service. Sounds like this is just going to be the same thing except this year they will offer an App (or channel, whatever you want to call it) so it works on the PS3. Wouldn't be suprised if they end up doing the AppleTV also since MLB and NBA offer their services on it too.

The thing that really caught my eye in that article is how they said DirecTV will be offering mix channel with only 4 games shown during the later game times. Hopefully this will be reflected on the DirecTV receiver version of the mix channel, and not just something for online/to-go viewers.
Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

I'm not sure what DIRECTV could do if it is confusing people who missed the price in the article.

some(not all)people are, well, easily confused.
either way, it's always interesting to see what others are chattering about.

About the most interesting part of the article for me, was the new 4 Channel Mix for afternoon games. Might actually be able to use it now to watch a game and keep up with 3 others. With the 8 Channel Mix, it's kind of a small screen to watch a game.

Also new this year, fans can tune to a new Mix Channel format for late afternoon games. While DirecTV will continue to display last year's eight-channel mix when there is a full schedule of Sunday games, the network will offer a new four-channel mix when there are four or fewer games in the afternoon TV window.

{Mod edit: The article was incorrect, Roku does not have the NFL ST in its lineup.}

Apparently it will also be available on the Roku Box (didn't want to start a new thread, but perhaps a Mod can change the title a bit).

STORY

Pertinent info:

The refresh caps off a few months of positive development for the company, including a big distribution deal with Best Buy and the news that DirecTV's premium Sunday Ticket NFL package, AOL HD and WealthTV would all be added to the Roku lineup.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

the author of the article makes it very confusing...I've read it about 4 times and still can't understand what he's trying to say....

Seems pretty straightforward to me:confused:

"Non-DirecTV subscribers will pay in the neighborhood of $340 for the subscriber authenticated-based PlayStation offering, $5 more than the price of a Sunday Ticket subscription. Subscribers of the Sunday Ticket package will get the service as part of the additional $50 NFL Sunday Ticket To-Go service, said the company."

If you don't have Direct TV you will pay $340 to watch it on your PS3.

If you have Direct TV and subscribe to Sunday Ticket, you will need to purchase the $50 To-Go package for Sunday Ticket in order to also watch the games on your PS3.

I had center ice on the PS3, and it's not very impressive.. I wonder if the NFL package will be the same?

I'd say the first half of the season was great the second half of the year it went to ****e.. As an oilers fan it was great to see local Edmonton feeds in HD. Just my opinion...

I seem to remember various problems with NFL on the go last season. Let's hope they smooth some things out because calling Sony yields zero fixes when problems arise... At least they didn't with NHL gamecenter..

Nice timing now that the PS3 dropped $50 and the new Roku was just released. Good time to get one.

We can't quote the whole thing, but if you have Sunday Ticket, you'll need to get the To go package ($50) to access it on the PS3. Some have gotten DirecTV to add it to their account for free.

What is the advantage of this for those that have D*?

Why watch NFLST on the PS3 or Roku over the D* receiver?

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.
