    Why is the word "trial" in there, and what does that mean?

    I know Directv offers a trial on NFL ST, and that trial is for the first week, and first week only.

    While I don't play Madden, don't own a PS3, and already subscribe to NFL-ST via Directv, if I were ya'll, I'd ask EA what "trial" means. Sounds like a marketing ploy to me.

  • This is not that complicated.

    The package comes with a code to view Sunday Ticket on tablets and mobile devices. It ALSO includes a code to get $10 for people who can get Direct TV.

    They are 2 separate things and you get both.

    You will be able to just get the Sunday Ticket package on your mobile devices if that is all you choose to do, no DirecTV required (and whether you CAN get it or not).

    Do I need a DirecTV subscription to access NFL Sunday Ticket?

    No, it's not necessary to have a DirecTV subscription. Each Anniversary Edition includes a code that can be redeemed to access the full 2013 regular season (17 weeks) of NFL Sunday Ticket on computer, tablet, and mobile devices.

    I don't have DirecTV service, but I'd like to sign up. What offers are available to me?

    In addition to access to the full 2013 regular season (17 weeks) of NFL Sunday Ticket on computer, tablet, and mobile devices, the Anniversary Edition includes an exclusive promotional code. When redeemed, this offers a $10 discount per month for the first year of service, in addition to NFL Sunday Ticket Max at no additional charge. This includes HD viewing on your TV of every NFL game, up to eight games at once on the Mix Channel, and more.

    You can only get the w/o direct tv version if you cant physically get direct tv where you are at.

    Otherwise, you get a coupon that gets you Sunday Ticket for free with your normal Direct TV account. Which is still a good deal. But if you dont have direct tv, and dont want it, this will only work if you CANT get direct tv.

    So, where my home is at, I am physically unable to receive DirecTV due to trees (not able to cut them down) that interfere with the Sat reception. Who do I contact to get the NFL Sunday Ticket service??

  • I am surprised that Direct TV would allow anything like this to happen because of how much they paid to get the exclusive rights to the package. It does sound like people have researched this enough to know if it will work or not.

    I have Direct TV and get SNFLT every year. I would tell anybody that is thinking about getting SNFLT to negotiate with Direct TV. I do every year and this is the first year I have had to pay anything in the past four years and this year they dropped the price to $99.00. They are great about giving deals.

    It doesn't say you get it for 17 weeks, the 17 weeks was in "()", which is how long it normally lasts. My curiosity is about the choice of the word "trial", which they used.

    I personally don't care, and I hope all of you get the full season. I would just want a little more clarification on why it says "trial".

  • This is the year 2013. Why can't the NFL just open the ticket up to all outlets and charge a seasonal price that gets them the money they want and gives the product to the people that want it. Just ridiculous that people who don't want Direct TV such as myself have to go through hoops to see the Hawk games.

  • Read it directly from Amazon, as it's their deal:

    http://www.amazon.com/Madden-Anniversar ... B00CF7KVMI

    Notice how your post didn't have the word "trial" in it? That's the only thing I'd be cautious of.

    Now, from what I've read, with folks talking to Directv, you actually do get the entire season. I hope ya'll do.

    It is weird that you can't stream it from the PS3 though, only available on PC's, smartphones, and tablets.

    EDIT:

    Did a bit more research, and the use of the word "trial" is becoming clear. The NFL and Directv agreed upon a "trial" program of streaming games, through 2014. I believe that's why the word is used.

    Because Direct TV paid the NFL about 4 billion dollars for the rights. But I do think once the deal is over with Direct TV you will see something similar to what you are talking about.

    You missed this part, straight from Amazon:

    No, it's not necessary to have a DirecTV subscription. Each Anniversary Edition includes a code that can be redeemed to access the full 2013 regular season (17 weeks) of NFL Sunday Ticket on computer, tablet, and mobile devices.


    You only need DirecTV if you want to watch straight through your TV or on PS3. Otherwise you can just use the code they give you to access NFL games on your mobile device or computer.

    Tell me more how you got the ST free? I've been getting the ST going on 10 years and always paid full price. After almost 10 years, I want it free or discounted!

    Just call and tell them that you have been a loyal customer for so many years and all these new customers are getting ST for free and you want it for free as well. They will have you agree to keep Direct TV for a year and give you ST for free.

    And while you are at it, have them drop your bill by $20 a month. They do that every year as well. Just tell them your bill is to high. Let me know how it goes.

  • I pre-ordered the game with subscription. I had been planning on buying the game anyway, so with the ability to watch the Seahawks every week for an extra $40, might as well buy it now. Can't wait to be able to watch all the Hawk's games this year!

  • Just wanna bump this and remind people who turned down this offer that this deal is 100% legit and you don't need direct tv...Should of listened and ordered this game from Amazon and get Sunday Ticket for cheap from the gate, even if you don't play Madden, you can always sell it for $50 or $60 bucks and save money on Sunday Ticket but ya'll didn't wanna listen to me...Basically you will be getting Sunday ticket for $40 if you sold Madden. Read the reviews on Amazon and people will tell you its legit..Best deal on the net..It is limited to 50,000 copies per console (Xbox 360 & PS3 only) so I'm not sure if it sold out yet but you can try...Won't be surprised if it sell out soon since Madden was just released yesterday and the regular season is coming up soon...

    Xbox 360 Version with NFL Sunday Ticket
    http://www.amazon.com/Madden-Anniversar ... =madden+25

    PS3 Version with NFL Sunday Ticket
    http://www.amazon.com/Madden-Anniversar ... =madden+25

    So if you wanna save money and not spend $250 on Sunday Ticket then I recommend you order this amazon exclusive offer now before this deal runs out. Madden was just released last night so I expect this to sell out soon especially when the NFL regular season starts next week...Good luck my fellow 12's...

  • Im going to own up and apologize. You were right.

    The wording is what made this deal very perplexing. Even in the leaflet that you got the login info stated "if you cant receive direct tv".

    But alas, it works. So you were correct. My only guess, is that the questionable wording was put on everything to hopefully dupe some people into using the sign up code for cheaper direct tv, hopefully snagging more accounts in the process.

    But like I said. You were correct on this one. Ill own up when im wrong.

    Yeah I really think they were hoping some people would see "if you can't get directv", see that they could, and just give up and order it.

    I can't think of any other reason why they would word it like that.

  • It has more to do with the fact that ESPN, NBC, CBS, FOX and DirecTV pay a lot of money to the NFL and they had to write it in such a way that it wouldn't directly conflict with their existing contracts.

    Its confusing/muddling to make it so it wouldn't cause a breach of contract with their established partners. There's a reason why its only on computers, cell phones and tablets... They are dinosaurs who don't realize that people can stream quality content from a device to their HDTV.
