Attached is the weekly NFL Schedule customized for DIRECTV SundayTicket subscribers. All games are in HD. CBS, NBC and NFLNet broadcast in 1080i, ESPN and FOX broadcast in 720p.

Time Zone Specific

Schedules are provided for each Time Zone; please note the names of the attachments to identify the correct PDF for your time zone.

SundayTicket Broadcasts

The rightmost section provides the SundayTicket HD game assignments, channels 704 through 718. Other channels are 701-Player Tracker, 702-Game Mix and 703-Red Zone. On Monday and Tuesday, channels 704-705 provide 30-minute Short Cut games.

Customize Your Schedule

The PDF schedules are formatted with Adobe ‘forms’ enabled. Editing can be done with Adobe Acrobat Release 8 or later or recent versions of the free Adobe Acrobat Reader.


National Broadcasts
You can add your LIL (Local-Into-Local) or DNS (Distant Network Service) CBS, FOX and NBC channel numbers to the schedule.

Regional Broadcasts
You can find in advance which regional games local CBS and FOX affiliates will be carrying by checking the online TV Distribution Maps. Add that channel information to your schedule. These DMA maps are available beginning Tuesday in the week preceding the game.

Blackouts

Regional Blackouts
DIRECTV is required to blackout a SundayTicket game that would duplicate regional programming by your local CBS or FOX affiliate.

Not Sold Out
If your home game is not sold out, your local station and DIRECTV both are required to blackout that live game in your home DMA.

The Week #1 Broadcasts are usually free. I expect that will be the case this year too. But the 'free trial' is week 1 only.

Just checked - I started posting this schedule in 2007 - so this is the 6'th year. The layout has evolved a little over the years. In those first years, the great interest was discovering which games were in HD and which were relegated to SD.

We can thank Chris Blount, who agreed this could be something that folks would be interested in downloading...

I thank Chris for the website. I thank gct for this page.
About 5 years of use here. Small change request.
Would prefer the team name still fit in there somewhere.

Those were the days...having to pay extra for HD, not all games available. We've come a long way.

Also want to add, thanks for all your work in the transponder mapping and Sunday Ticket. It really helps, along with all the other contributions.

The Panthers-Buccaneers game will be blacked out in Tampa Bay and adjacent markets due to failure of meeting ticket threshold.

I apologize in advance if that detracts the intention of the thread.

Is this why they can't put that game in the mix channel? I wish they'd figure out a way to only black out the window for this game for people living in the Tampa DMA.

That is why. And they won't. There is no value in that. The mix channels are really just standard channels with an interactive overlay. There is no intelligence in what is shown downstream. The overlay software just knows where the different boxes are and acts upon that with a cursor (the highlighted box).

The change needed to handle blackouts regionally would mean a completely different system.

Has anyone else had problems watching Sunday Ticket on a computer. I get an error message, "You are not currently subscribed to this NFL SUNDAY TICKET feature to watch live games." when I try to watch on a computer.

I have a paid subscription to ST Max, PS3 and iPad work just fine.

Has anyone else seen this message come up today?

Yes. Directv.com is odd because it looks like you are logged in if you have before but it is only for recognition. For anything substantial, you have to relog in.

I got the same error then clicked on log in. Put in my password again and their was a button tht said start watching Sunday ticket. Worked that time.

I called DTV on this today and talked to a supervisor who cold not answer the question i.e why the Tampa/Carolina is blacked out on NFL Game Mix channel 702 but the game is on Channel DTV 715. i live in Calif.

It makes no sense. To see the game i have to keep changing channels from 702 to 715

The NFL Game Mix is not blacked out in any market and is available to everyone with NFL Sunday Ticket. Since the Tampa Bay market was blacked out of this game it is not shown on the Mix channel so they can't see it. That way the Sunday Ticket subscribers in Buccaneers territory still get the mix channel but not the game.

It is a nuisance, and personally I think if someone is dedicated enough to watch a blacked out game on a screen that small they should be able to, but that's the way it is for now. Hope that helps.

It seems to me that if DTV/NFL can figure out how to black out channel 715 in the Tampa market they could also figure out how to not have the Tampa/Carolina game shown on the NFL Game Mix Channel that would be broadcast to the Tampa Market but still leave the game on for the rest of the NFL Game Mix market.
