11 million streamers in both cases. The other 100 million Super Bowl viewers and two million TNF viewers watched on their local affiliates. (And in both cases it was one stream.)The 11 Million people who watched the super bowl and the 13 million who watched Thursday nights game would disagree.
And all of their feeds were in SD when they launched NFL ST! The horror! How could anyone ever pay for such a service!Satellite is not that robust either as noted prior Directv would need to lower the variable bit rates on certain channels to support the Sunday Ticket feeds
DIRECTV satellite has added plenty of bandwidth since the days where they had to shut channels down or squeeze bandwidth to make room for the games. The robustness of satellite comes from being able to use the same bandwidth to reach an unlimited number of viewers without further degradation.
