You could if you also have the television hooked to a PC with recording capabilities. I have no idea about straight through the PS3.

I don't think they offer Sunday Ticket through the PS3 yet. If they did, beleive me, I'd have had it by now.

As for recording from ST, you can record anything with the right equipment.

First thing you'll need is an external HD, CPU tower, and a fiberwire or video capture system. (around $30 at best buys). Connect PS3 to CPU using fiberwire or VCS. Connect TV to video outputs of CPU. When the game comes on turn on the CPU leave PS3 off and select record on program that comes with VCS. If you use a fiberwire it'll sync with WMP. Switch input settings on tv to game, turn on playstation. Now everything on PS3 is being recorded. Save all recordings to External HD to prevent CPU from crashing or freezing during recording. Good Luck

I called DirecTv about a week or so ago to inquire about this and they're Sunday Max because I can't actually get DirecTv in HD because I have so many trees in my yard. I was going to split the cost with a friend who has so that I can at least watch games through my laptop/tv combo when I want to.

In any case, I asked the sales guy and he said that they were going to start selling it for the PS3 the first week of the season but that it is not available yet. I think they're trying to get as many people committed for 2 years as possible before they announce that you don't need to have Directv to get the Sunday Ticket.

how is the quality of the streaming on PS3?

Depends on the quality of the cable you use to s.t.r.e.am the video. A s.tream on a $30 fiberwire will look just as good as in person

$349 was last year's price, They haven't announced this years as far as I know. Direct TV had to drop the price due to the Thursday games. I would assume they'd do the same with the app. If not, i'll probably just go to the sports bar. $200 is fair, but $350 when we have 4 primetime games, and I'm going to a game doesn't make sense for me.

I hope they come down in the price. Paying $350 was waaaay too much money. If they dropped it down to $200-$250 then I might get it. They rarely show Falcon games here in Texas unless we are playing the Saints or primetime.

Yes it is available on the PS3 since last August and yes you can record if it is hooked to a PC. The price is not announced yet but it probably will be the same as the Sunday Ticket DirecTV price...just like last year.

Last year it was $50 more than the Sunday Ticket if you did NOT have Directv. There is no pricing as of yet.

The extra 50 was because there was an add on to the ticket for online streaming and access which they tacked on the PS3 package. Hopefully they drop that this year.

how is the quality of the streaming on PS3?

Pretty good really, as long as you're not uploading a ton of pictures or video on another computer. My wife used to put videos on youtube of our kid so people in our family could watch them. That was the only time that the quality suffered. You don't need Fiberwire either. If you're like 99.9% of PS3 owners, the ethernet coming out of your router is good enough.

You could always do what I did. I have a friend who already had Sunday ticket. I paid him the difference between the regular Sunday ticket and the max. That way I could just play it off my ps3.

Regular you can only watch it through your direct tv box. With max you can PIRATED VIDEO IS ILLEGAL it through any device that offers the Sunday ticket app.
