Yesterday we reported that the NFL Sunday Ticket was going to be available to everyone whether you have DirecTV or not. That’s not the case.
The only way you can get the Sunday ticket is if you’re unable to get DirecTV in your area, per MultiChannel.
DirecTV confirmed that policies governing who can or can’t qualify for its unbundled, streaming-only Ticket option remains generally unchanged. DirecTV began to push the broadband version of Ticket back in 2009, first testing it in Manhattan for $350, then expanding access to consumers in other markets who qualified for it.
“If you can get DirecTV, you are not eligible for this product, but if you can’t get DirecTV, then you are eligible for this product,” a spokeswoman said via email, noting that DirecTV runs a database that helps the company to determine whether a consumer can get DirecTV service.”
