From the FAQ:


Do I need a DirecTV subscription to access NFL Sunday Ticket?
No, it's not necessary to have a DirecTV subscription. Each Anniversary Edition includes a code that can be redeemed to access the full 2013 regular season (17 weeks) of NFL Sunday Ticket on computer, tablet, and mobile devices.

There you go. $99 for the whole season, web only.

i don't need sunday nfl ticket.  i get all the panthers games and after that i just watch the nfl redzone channel when we aren't playing.  madden sucks balls every year now, i CAN'T cave and buy it this year

 

I'm done with first row, I'd rather take a bullet then do one more season with that. And when you live in Tenn, you get to watch the top of the line football action that is Titan football, not Panther.

 

It sucks, I was gonna finally do PS3 sunday ticket this year and then.... LOL XBOX NOW!!! ugh.

 

So yeah, I'll be doing this. I want to watch Panther football. Not Panther highlights.

If you have Amazon Prime you can probably guarantee you'll get it on or the day after the release date ($3.99 One Day Shipping, free Two Day). If you go with their free shipping, it'll probably be a few days after the release date. Regardless, you'd have it in plenty of time for the first game of the season as it releases on August 27th I believe.

I see what you are saying, you can just say you can't get it, and that's that, still kind of odd you have to go that route.  I'd be tempted to buy this, and sale/trade Madden in immediately and that would be like 40-50 bucks for the ticket.

When I moved into my new house DirecTV comped me my Sunday Ticket Max this year so I kinda lucked out. If they hadn't done that I definitely would have done this deal and just connected my galaxy tablet to the tv via hdmi.

Very tempting. I've been watching all the games on First Row. I'm used to it, but needless to say, watching the 10 pixels worth of the game will likely make me blind one day. I'm also one of the poor souls who lives in an apartment with a bitch of a landlord who doesn't allow dishes. Comcast effectively has a monopoly over us.

 

Anyway, I don't own an XBox (or any console for that matter), but have been thinking about picking one up. However, I see nothing that says you actually need an XBox to receive this offer. Just buy the game (and sell it later) and you get a code for ST.

 

I haven't been paying attention, but has this been a regular promo between XBox (Microsoft) and Sunday Ticket? Did they offer something similar last year?

While they don't say anything about the Xbox, they do say that it is for computer and mobile devices only.  They seem to be making a point of that, like they don't want to get sued by someone who thinks they can stream it through their Xbox.  Additionally, you can get a copy of the game with the Sunday Ticket for your PS3, but not the PS4 or Xbox One.  Seems that as long as it's the Anniversary Edition, you get the code.

 

I'm going to get it just for the Sunday Ticket, as I don't have an Xbox.  $99 for the season is a great deal, and I'm happy to pay that for HD streaming.  Anyone want a copy of the game?  :)

I was about to take advantage of this offer, and then I just found out that the NFL is dropping NFL Sunday Ticket from the PS3. Man this sucks!!! It was actually the only reason why I went out and bought a stupid PS3. I never play video games. Just wanted to take a break from crowded sports bars in Richmond that put the Panthers on the crappiest TV possible.

 

My condo will not allow satellites, so I was eligible to get NFL Sunday Ticket online. I had watched it using my laptop before but the screen isn't huge like my tv, so I was excited when I heard it was available on PS3. 

 

I bought a console right away. I used it last year and loved it. 

 

I'm sure the NFL was charging Sony a pretty penny which is why they dropped it. Still, this sucks because now I have this useless PS3 taking up dust. Great.
