DirecTV offering live NFL games to iPhone users

DirecTV offering live NFL games to iPhone users
Sundays during the summer are pretty laid back with the warmer weather. It's a good time to spend it with the family at the beach or just at home having a barbecue. During the fall and winter months, the NFL takes hold with prime time gridiron games dominating the day. If you happen to be a subscriber to DirecTV's NFL Sunday Ticket, you'll be glad to know that watching next season's games can also be viewed on your iPhone. It's part of a $100 package they are offering. Football fans that are paying $280 for National Football League games outside their home TV market can add the new service. Although it may not compare to sitting down on your couch and viewing it in high definition, it'll simply provide you another alternative. So if you're stuck at work or something else, you won't be missing out on any of the action anymore thanks to the new service. It is said that the application to enable watching will be made available by September for the iPhone and will work on both Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity. You better hurry and sign up before it expires on July 31 to take advantage of this offer.

BB is dying slowly along with Windows Mobile... Hail to my Palm Pre and IPod Touch 2nd Gen Not a fan of Android But bk to the article, this is no big deal to me, people with Slingplayer have been doin this for years. Sling is one of the best things for cell phones!

tell me about it!. I got a slingbox sitting at home & an iphone but unable to watch anything thanks to stupid ATT crippling the 3G connection on the slingplayer app. why would i pay 30 bucks for an app to watch TV only at places most likely already got a TV set (wifi). I wouldn't even care if they allow 3G & jack up the price for the app, but at least let the iphone users use their phones to the full capabilities. why other smartphones using same ATT network can use slingplayer on 3G but iphones can't. if they blame the number of iphone users (hogging bandwidth) is much greater than number of other smartphone users then might as well not make the iphone to begin with. u make the product, advertise it, pocket all the profit from sales, brag about it, then worry about the network will crash. stupid ATT. Apple should end the exclusivity with ATT, even out the number of users to all carriers, and free up all the apps doing what they're designed to do.

I use the Skyfire app for iPhone to watch all the NFL games on my iPad or iPhone. It's pretty simple and free to watch all the games. It's pretty easy to set-up but there's some pretty simple instructions here with screen grabs that explains it
