DirecTV to offer live NFL games via the iPhone

Fri, Jul 17, 2009


DirecTV is planning to launch an iPhone application that will allow customers signed up for their NFL package to watch NFL games on their iPhone via both 3G and Wi-Fi.

The service is gonna cost you, though.  Barron’s notes that “to use the service, you’ll need to pay for both the satellite TV provider’s $280 Sunday Ticket subscription, and a $100 add-on Superfan upgrade. The service is subject to local blackout rules.”

The Superfan upgrade also comes with a few other non-mobile perks such as allowing subscribers to watch up to 8 games at once on a single screen, in addition to a channel that condenses games down to 30 minutes.

DirecTV has said that the iPhone app will be available on iTunes by September.
