If they can handle the super bowl then they can handle weekly games

Bars won’t be an issue since it won’t be on commercial anymore
Your comparing one game compared to a bar streaming 3 or 4 games....and most everyone is watching the Super bowl on their TVs through cable,satillite, or over the air?.....LOL thats funny stupid stuff bro....tell us another! lol

No it’s pretty legit. Just like the 5 people on here that like flailing that rural America being cut off from Sunday ticket is going to sink the service

10’s of Millions of people are streaming anything on there phones or Wi-Fi networks at any given minute. And you think Sunday ticket with its paltry two million people is going to cause an issue That’s funny stupid stuff bro

So a bar streaming one game is the same bandwidth as the same bar streaming 3 or 4 games at once?....I i would bet during Super Bowl all Internet bandwidth is much slower....That would be an interesting stat..I think your way off imo

Most HD Streams are around 3-4Mbps a second The minimum commercial internet bandwidth by me is 100Mbps T-Mobile and Verizon 5G are also well north of 100. The bars could offer 20 games at a time with no issue. Bandwidth is not and won’t be an issue

I have streamed the super bowl the last 4 years with zero issues

UP TO 100Mbps not all area have the same backhual and rural areas? also what is the high speed cap on that 5G?
it can be as low as 50GB and that will not last to long with 4+ streams.

Not everyone can get good home broadband .

I wish I could get tmobile or Verizon Wireless LTE/5G home broadband. I would kiss this POS docsis good bye in a heartbeat.

Some folks have outages all the ... time and we are told it's "maintenance " ...

I have MLB Extra Innings and also have it set up where if I had to I could watch games via the MLB At Bat app. The screen on my phone when trying to watch goes blurry all the time if I try to watch and buffers all the time when trying to watch a game. It’s impossible to watch a game and enjoy it because of the buffering. So if the NFL goes to a streaming service, the NFL will lose my dollars. I do live in a rural area and rely on DIRECTV. All I am hoping for is DIRECTV finds a way to maintain Sunday Ticket but don’t let it move to an exclusive all streaming service. Give people who have streaming services like Amazon, Apple, or ESPN+ the option to receive the games, but don’t take it away from DIRECTV subscribers. It will be a disaster for many who won’t be able to see out of market games.

I do live in a rural area of Mississippi and rely heavily on DIRECTV for viewing. Not everyone lives in New York or Los Angeles with the highest speed internet available.
Everyone doesn’t need to. I live in rural Western PA and have a 1Gig connection

Western Pa is nothing like where I live in extreme Rural Mississippi. Some roads where I live the residents don’t even have cable. Satellite Television is the only option around here. That’s just the way it still is here.

Goodell is an idiot. Putting NFL Sunday Ticket on a streaming service will be a disaster. Too many folks who live in rural areas that don’t have reliable high speed internet service are going to be screwed out of seeing NFL Games.
Under the DIRECTV contract the NFL received $1.5 billion per year (for the last few years) regardless of the number of actual subscribers. There is no financial reason to care who could or could not receive the content. The NFL's only consideration was could they get more than $1.5 billion from anyone else.

When the streaming contract is announced it won't matter who or who will not be able to watch. What will seal the deal is how many billions of dollars some company is willing to pay.

There are rumors that Directv will retain commercial or maybe even commercial + satellite residential rights via sublicense.

If say Apple got it and plans to charge $300, they could allow Directv to sell it for example for $350 and showing Apple's inserted ads or $400 and letting Directv insert their own ads. Not only would they make more than selling to those customers directly (so they wouldn't look at as a competition) they'd more money overall since they'd catch those customers who either can't stream or are older people who refuse to mess with newfangled technology like my mom (not an NFL fan, but she refuses to have anything to do with streaming even though she's got fast internet and a smart TV) Even if there were only 250K such residential satellite only customers that's $100M towards what they're paying.

Having Directv sell commercial rights makes too much sense. Every bar that wants to carry NFLST already has Directv, it isn't like there's an untapped market of bars that are set up for streaming on all their TVs but can't do satellite like there is in the residential market. Directv is already set up to do the billing and everything else, so let them handle the hassle and Apple can just cash the checks and worry about what they're good at - innovation on the consumer side.

No one knows what's going to happen until it is announced, so it is pointless to worry about who is going to be cut off from NFLST before then. It is in the interest of whoever buys the rights to maximize its potential distribution, since they will be paying the NFL a fixed cost.

I mean sucks to be you then. Expecting the NFL to offer something for a small portion of the population is just stupid
