NFL Sunday Ticket Subscribers No Longer Need “Max” Upgrade for Out of Market Streaming

Previously, subscribers of DIRECTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket needed a “MAX” upgrade to stream every out of market game. As of today, that is changing. Announced by AT&T this morning, “Customers will no longer need to upgrade to NFL Sunday Ticket MAX when they subscribe to Sunday Ticket in its 22nd season.”

With this announcement, anyone who subscribes to DIRECTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket package will be able to stream every live out-of-market regular season game every Sunday afternoon. AT&T details that streaming of Sunday Ticket went up 35% last year, and this move should help increase those numbers even more so.  (more…)

2015 DL Football Eliminator Challenge is Open! Winner Takes Home a Phone of Choice

It’s time! The DL Football Eliminator Challenge is now open for the 2015 season! For the 5th year in a row, our winner will walk away with a phone of their choice.

For those new to NFL eliminator challenges, they work like this. You pick one winner each week out of all of the games being played. If your team wins, you move on to the next week. Just keep in mind that you can only choose a team one time per season, so there is some strategy involved. With that said, by no means are these challenges as intense as fantasy football or weekly pick’em challenges. This is the simplest form of an NFL challenge you can participate in.

The season kicks off this Thursday (yes, in 2 days), so you will want to sign-up now. We will try our best to remind you throughout the next couple of days to sign-up, though.

There is no cost to you, yet you can win a phone of choice. Ready to sign-up?  (more…)

NFL Game Pass Brings All Football Games On-Demand to Your Smartphone, But They’re Not Live

Professional sports and your local cable provider — the relationship is essentially built to screw the customer, unless you are willing to pay crazy money for a subscription to view all of the NFL’s telecasts live. Sure, a few games will be on the big stations like Fox and CBS, but if you happen to live in an out-of-market territory from your favorite team, forget about it.

With that being said, starting this upcoming season, the NFL is sort of getting with the times, bringing true, on-demand streams for all games, no matter where you are with Game Pass. Although, be aware of one major catch.  (more…)

Verizon Releases Special NFL Leather Moto X (2nd Gen), Available for $119

One of the first thoughts that came to mind after Motorola told us that they had partnered with Horween Leather to produce the leather used for the backs of the new Moto X (2nd gen) and the bands for the Moto 360, knowing that this is the company thats materials are in NFL footballs, was how they would figure out a way to tie-in this country’s most popular sport with their new flagship phone. Now we know. Well, sources told us about this a couple of months ago, so we can’t say we are exactly shocked. But yeah, the Moto X (2nd gen) now comes with an optional NFL leather backside. As in, your Moto X could be a football.  (more…)
