    Say you are traveling and you have access to an HDTV in your hotel or relatives house where you are staying. Take your PS3 with you and you have HD access to ST on the go... Or say its a cloudy day or thunderstorms are in your area and your DirecTV dish is not getting reception... PS3 to the rescue with internet streaming of ST...

    Joekak gave another answer. Rather than mirroring another receiver during The Season, if you have one, you can use the PS3 or Roku you already have in the room with another TV.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Will the PS3 be able to be used as an additional receiver as stated in the PS Blog article? As in watch ALL my DirecTV programming via PS3?

    I think I see where you're going with that.... So that means you could watch the BEARS game on two different TV's in the same room with only one receiver ....That my friends, is some sweet lovin' by the fireplace!

    No, only NFL ST games that would be streamed via internet. (And I gather other sports streams.)

    Cheers,
    Tom

    That wouldn't take this option, you can just use another output and hook the tv up to the same receiver. This would be good for two different games, or a game on one, red zone channel on the others, etc.

    Being a galaxy 10.1 tab owner im curious if they are releasing a tablet specific app as tablets were specifically mentioned in the article. I hope its just not the same app for phones as i would love a tab optimized app!

    yes the four cell game window for afternoon games is for regular subscribers. The game ticker feed that provides live updates of games not in the mix at the bottom of the screen will not be available on the 4 cell as it is on the 8 cell screen, however.

    Wow, this is cool news for football fans. I wonder if this will make its way to Apple TV too??

    I wonder if this will cause some fulltime DIRECTV subscribers to jump ship now that they'll have another ST option??

    Some articles are using the terms, "for people that can't get DirecTV." So to clarify, this will be offered to anyone with a supported device, including ones that just don't want to switch?

    We have MLB.tv on our Roku and enjoy it. The PQ isn't quite what you get on broadcast TV (okay, that's being generous) but it costs half as much as MLB Extra Innings. Would I pay the full NFL Sunday Ticket cost for this quality of video though? That's a tough sell...

    Yeah, I can't imagine the quality would be as good. They still have to have something to say that the experience is better if you subscribe to DirecTV.

    Is Sunday ticket to go live streaming only? Or can I come to a game in the middle and start watching from the beginning?

    Especially with the movement of the game. Baseball movement is largely localized.

    I can't wait to see a demo video of how the interface and content will look like. What wasn't answered though is will the package be viewable on your pc as well. Is the package only available to roku and ps3 specific products or will there also be the option to view the game on your pc?

    Id be curious to know if the PS3 will have game mix on it or be like the phone apps and one game at a time. Also I wonder if its just live or can you rewind action if you miss it?

    Do the articles specifically say Roku is getting NFL ST? Maybe I missed it. There is no discussion of ST on Roku forums. Is the NFL getting a cut from these additional customers? Or is it just gravy for Direct?
