Currently the app won't let me watch my local Packers game because it is broadcast locally I guess. If I go out of town will the app recognize that and let me watch the game?

I believe if you get far enough away to a place where the Green Bay game is not on a local channel, then yes it will become available to the app.  I believe it goes by the IP address or cell tower that your phone/tablet is connected through.


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."

This is most ridiculous part of Sunday Ticket Max. As a Colts fan in NC, I expected to receive ALL Colts games on my phone, should I not be home, taking the dog out to play, etc. To be sure, I asked the CSR if I would be able to watch ALL the Sunday Colts games. She said, "Yes because the Colts are not your local team." That was last season, and the few games I tried to watch on my phone worked perfectly. This seaon, I have been gone a few times and tried to watch part of a Colts game. It told me I was blacked out. Turns out a local TV channel was airing the game. That is absolutely ridiculous. Until this is fixed, this will be my last season with ST Max as it is a complete rip off. Look at the those 4:30 games that nearly everyone gets, that means nearly everybody can't watch it on their phone, which we have PAID to do.

Shouldn't you folks be blaming the NFL. DirecTV does not set the rules

I will blame all parties if I pay to watch OUT OF MARKET NFL games and are denied what I paid for because of another example of local channel greed.

not sure how you can blame DirecTV when they are told by the NFL what to do.

But Out of Market is basically defined as a game that is not locally available. Since the Colts are locally available, you can't watch them via ST.

 

Same applies with other sports packages too.

It has always been like this. Local games arr blacked out as you can watch them via OTA.

Its the nfl with these rules. For those with NFL mobile on there phones I believe same rule applies if you are at a NFL stadium. U get a blacked out message.


It happend to me when I went to gb @ CAR game a few years back. I was trying to watch other games during halftime and got blackout message on both apps.

So the consenus is that when I travel to Florida from Wisconsin I will be able to watch the Packers games on the mobile app. Right?

Yes. Unless the Packers are playing in FL and you're in that market.

Actually, it hasn't always been like this. Up until the early 2000s (I think), all games were available in the clear on NFL Sunday Ticket (unless there was a no sellout blackout).  Games that aired on your local CBS/FOX were still available on NFL ST.

It changed around the time they added full HD (just before that), so late 2000s? They first did it in just a couple markets (Seattle was one of them?) for a year then it went nationwide.

 

Red Zone is available everywhere, though, so you can watch there and keep up with important plays while mobile.

Yes.  I was in Florida last week and was able to watch the Jets/Steelers game via the mobile app.  That game would have been blacked out if I had been home.

 

As others have pointed out, if the Packers game happens to be on local broadcast TV, in the area of Florida in which you are in at the time, the game will still be blacked out.
