PlayStation 3 Gets NFL Sunday Ticket

Ever feel irritated that the only legal way to watch all the NFL games you want is to sign up for DirecTV? Boy, I sure do, and there’s no way in hell I’m signing a two-year agreement with any satellite company. I mean damn.

Anyway, Sony has announced that they’ve signed a deal with DirecTV to bring the greatest TV sports package on Earth, the NFL Sunday Ticket — which lets you watch any out-of-market NFL game — to the PlayStation 3 console starting this season. If you don’t have DirecTV, it’ll cost you the standard $339 for the full season, and if you do have DirecTV, you can get Sunday Ticket for $50, and apparently you can now use the PS3 as a DirecTV receiver, which makes one wonder why you would pay extra to watch it on your PS3. Either they’re not being clear or I’m getting confused or both.

Anyway, the point is that this is a pretty big deal. Between MLB.TV, NHL GameCenter and this, and ESPN3 on the Xbox 360, you almost don’t really need TV service or a computer to watch sports. Well, you still need the computer for your NBA plan, but otherwise you’re set. What a wonderful world we live in.

It’s $50 to use Sunday Ticket on PS3 if you already have Sunday Ticket through DirecTV.
