My guess is only live streams and highlights. Don't know about mix channels. I haven't seen them in the past.

Cheers,
Tom

Its not a big deal but this just shows the general sloppiness of things:

The ST insignia on the left is from that article & they are still using the old NFL logo, starfield, football, curved letters.

The ST insignia on the right is the new one that should be used with the new NFL logo with the 8 stars (1 for each division), new football, block lettering.

Again not a big deal but just sloppy work.

Got the heads up.

NFL ST is not on the Roku lineup as reported in an article listed in this thread. Sorry for the misinformation we passed on.

Cheers,

I'm not sure I understand the pricing model. It appears they are charging their own subscribers $45 more than non-subscribers. That seems backwards.

It does require the addon pack for subscribers, but if you don't need the PS3/mobile support, you'll get better quality. Watching over the PS3 is a good option for setting up another TV without needing a receiver, but won't be the best experience.

And it isn't hard to get the addon package free anyway.

Does this mean it's not officially on ROKU right now or that it won't be on ROKU this year? BTW I have ROKUs at my second home (the one without D*) and I would much rather watch on them then on a laptop with an HDMI out or a Tablet with a micro HDMI to the TV ...

This means that Roku will not be streaming the NFL ST this upcoming season as things stand right now.

Who knows, there might be negotiations going on (I have no information) and someday Roku might negotiate to carry NFL ST. As of now, contrary to the article, they won't.

This is Freaking Awesome. My father gets Sunday Ticket every year so last year i had him sign up for To Go and I streamed games from my laptop to my TV. This will be great this year to have it directly on the TV with my PS3

MLB program on the PS3 quality is pretty damn good. Def. HD or close to it at times. I have never used the NHL one.

Even if the quality is eh, it is better then having nothing

Tom, (or anyone here that could help)

Would it be possible to use the PS3 as a receiver and use the To-Go streaming feature on a laptop at the same time? Would signing in to the laptop service trigger an automatic disconnection of the person watching on PS3?

I ask because:

I have ST in my home. My brother in law will use PS3 with my directv log-in to watch in New Orleans, and my friend will use Sunday Ticket to-go with my directv log-in to watch on his laptop in new york.

Will this all be possible simultaneously?

It stands to reason that if the PS3 acts like an additional "receiver" as the article implies, that this would be an independent stream vs. the Sunday Ticket To-Go stream for the same subscriber...

This is very definitely a big violation of the DIRECTV terms of service. You should start out by knowing that.

The other part is I don't know. I suspect the login will only allow one to go.

Cheers,
Tom

I would assume it would work the way it does now. One To Go device logged in at one time and the PS3 will count the same way as a mobile device and a web client

In the past you could only login one at a time. If I was logged in on my computer at work and tried to log in on my iPod touch it would kick me out on my computer.

Tom, any chance you can clarify on whether or not you have to prove you can't get Sunday Ticket in order to get the PS3 app? I've seen it posted a few places now that you won't have to, but I figured you would have to just like last year's To-Go offer for non-DirecTV subscribers.
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."

My current understanding is that, unlike previous years, you will not have to prove you can't get DIRECTV to get the PS3 app. Please remember that sometimes details can change between when I hear things (and am allowed to tell) and the actual launch.

Tom

It's clear that things changed at the last minute with Roku. Chill out.

If it's not in the PSN store right now, I'm sure it will be this week.

It's in the PSN store now. If the video quality is as bad as the sample videos (ST Ads) then this is NOT worth the price they are asking for from folks. Wasn't it supposed to be HD quality? I guess we will find out for sure on Sunday...
