Direct Tv Sunday Ticket Online?

Hi gang! A few weeks back I posted about how excited I was to be getting Direct TV and Sunday Ticket... well, when they came out to survey where to place the dish, we were informed that we'd have to have two large trees in our backyard removed in order to recieve the signal. Not willing to forego the expense of a tree cutter we will be without Direct TV.

BUT... my buddy has Direct TV and was upgrading to Sunday Ticket this year, and he offered to split the cost with me to go up to Sunday Ticket Max meaning it should go across all devices now from phone, to pad, to laptop/computer. He's letting me us his login to watch online at my place.

Here's my question... I've been logged in and poking around to see how the player works and I can't find anything to launch a live TV player, or anything in all of their Sunday Ticket stuff saying 'Watch Now' or 'Launch Player'. I know its not gameday, but does the site update with a player or link close to game start times? I'm a little antsy that I may not be able to watch the game like I planned and I'm hoping someone here who has experience with watching Sunday Ticket online can let me know if there is something I'm missing or if I should just chill and wait til tomorrow when they put a live link up.

Thanks!

I'm guessing they will too, but just looking for confirmation.

I was also under the impression you could watch live TV from your computer with DTonline, but apparently its like a netflix/InDemand hybrid now where you can pick and choose stuff to watch at anytime (some free, some pay, depending on your subscription). Only on an Ipad or Kindle through the use of an app can you now watch live TV on any device besides your television.

What I was expecting to find was a TV viewer and guide where I could check out any regular channels (as in watching) just to make sure all was working, and see on the guide tomorrow's game listed. When I didn't find anything like that, I got a little concerned and ran here to the experts on this board to see if anyone else has the online service and could enlighten me on what the game watching drill is ;)

I watch it every year on my iphone/ipad while I am watching other games on the TV. Be prepared for week 1 to SUCK! I swear to you they can't get this crap right on week 1(for the past 3 years atleast). I'm really hoping directv pulls it together this year cause I am on the road and can't watch it anywhere else unless I go to a bar.

As far as watching it on your laptop, in years past they had an "app" for your PC and then it went to more of a extension of their website for the PIRATED VIDEO IS ILLEGAL. I have been looking for the link and all that but I am guessing that won't get updated until gameday.

I hope this helps.

I'm buying it through the playstation this afternoon when I leave the office. My buddy had it last year, there is a little lag, but it's pretty quality and has cool features. It's too expensive, $300, but I'm sick of the Sports Bar.

By the time you go to the bar a few times, you'll have already spent close to what Sunday Ticket costs. It's well worth it in my opinion.

Same here, I watch every year on my PC which i have hooked up to my big screen via HDMI cable or my PS3 which now has a Direct TV AP. For Direct TV on your PC, when you log into your acccount on Gameday they will have a option to sign in for Sunday Ticket Users.

The last 2 years have been horrible on Week 1.

The app on PS3 is pretty decent but the picture quality is not that great. Its decent but not HD Quality.

I hope it works today or ill know 5 minutes into the game ill have to make the drive to my parents house 20 minutes away to watch the game where my Direct TV account is.

I've had NFL ticket for about 6/7 years and recently thev've been advertising it for 199.00 for what i'm assuming is first time buyers, well I got on the horn with DTV after I got a notice saying 6 months of equal installments, my total was over 300.00, well, I guess after nicely reminding them that as a long time faithful customer, I too was deserving of this 199.00 price as well - Must have worked, my next bill reflected the 199 vs 300 plus price.

I was able to get it for 150 with the MAX. Had to call 3 times last month. I just said i had a friend get it for 150 NOT FAIR LOL.

But 199 is still good.

I have it on my phone through verizon nfl mobile. But while watching the UGA game last night, I thought I saw on the ticker at the bottom that the game was on ESPN2 today. Not sure if I saw that correctly or if I just caught the end of the ticker as it scrolled through all of this weekend's games. It would be nice if it is on ESPN2, but I'm not counting on it.

Well apparently you need Flash Player 11.4 or higher to watch on the PC. And my system doesn't seem to support that. ****!!!!!!!!

That should be a quick n easy download... just do a search for flash player update in your preferred search engine :)

ALSO, happy to report that yes, there was a link up this morning when I refreshed the page... WHEW!!!

Here's to a great start of the season friends!!

RISE UP!!

Yeah, I definitely over-reacted. That was easy, and it's workin' just fine. Good stuff.
