US satellite-television provider DirecTV has significantly extended the reach of its Sunday Ticket package of programming for the NFL American football league by making its live streaming service more widely available.
The new offering for NFLSundayTicket.tv is designed to cater for consumers who are unable to install a satellite dish at their homes. The exclusive, live streaming version of the NFL Sunday Ticket subscription service will be available to consumers living in an apartment, condominium or townhome who are not now receiving DirecTV service.
NFLSundayTicket.tv is also being made available to consumers who were not able to install a DirecTV dish at their home due to an obstruction or other restriction. Active students at four-year universities nationwide will be able to buy NFLSundayTicket.tv U at an exclusive student price.
NFLSundayTicket.tv packages will start at $49.99 (€45) a month for four months, and offer a variety of services, including live out-of-market NFL games every Sunday afternoon, accessible via computers, tablets, smartphones or other connected devices.
The special student version of NFLSundayTicket.tv U will be offered at $24.99 per month for four months.
Sunday Ticket is an out-of-market subscription package that was launched by DirecTV in 1994, allowing subscribers to access Sunday afternoon games broadcast by US networks CBS and Fox.
NFLSundayTicket.tv has been available since 2010, but its use has previously come with certain limitations.
