    I wasn't even aware that this was coming, but tonight DirecTV released an iPad version of Sunday Ticket. Streaming games and Red Zone on your iPad is free if you already subscribe to Sunday Ticket.

    Legendary!!

    Don't overlook the option to pass on paying DirecTV and buying a Slingbox instead. That will allow you to watch anything coming through or recorded to your DirecTV tuner/DVR on your iPad, iPhone or computer anywhere in the world, using wifi or even 3G.

    Of course you won't get all the games you get with the Ticket, but for some people it might be an option.

    Kudos to the NFL for giving the app away to Sunday Ticket subscribers.

    Bud $elig decided to charge $14.99 each for the MLB iPhone and iPad apps, regardless of whether you already subscribe to MLB.tv.

    NFL 1, MLB 0

    If you go to directv.com there is no way to navigate to this page. Plus when you follow the posted link there is no way back to directv's homepage.

    OK thanks. I have the iPad app installed, but not being a Direct TV subscriber, there is no way to get past the initial login page when the app is launched.

    I'll see what tomorrow brings.

    Will report back

    Hey all,

    Just ordered it for the current season without being a DirectTV subscriber. I am thrilled that I found this option so I can follow the Dolphins from out here in Hawaii.

    I will report back on quality on 3G and Wifi tomorrow both from iPad and iPhone 4

    GO DOLPHINS!

    Thank you for the tip, I used the GamePass last season and it worked great! A bit of a shame that it requires Firefox and flash though...

    Seriously, American sports could get alot better at using the iPad/iPhone. Look at the Formula1 live timing app, with it I can follow all cars on a track map, get timing information and genereall info about the series —all live as the race goes on. NASCAR and NFL need to step up to the plate, and they need to change their pricing for the online services.

    It is definitely a separate charge from Sunday ticket. My bf pays for Sunday ticket and super fan...when I log into the app it says you also need a to go subscription.

    It is kind of a ripoff especially when most of jacksonvilles games are blacked out bc they can't sell out a game.

    Halftime Update

    Well after playing with it for the first half of the game....when it works it's great but it defintely has some issues. First, the streaming and quality is pretty good. It looks great on the iPad and even looks good on my Mac Mini blown up on my 42" Plasma.

    Some of the bad, the iPad app itself locks up quite a bit. It doesn't stop streaming usually but the touchscreen locks up and you can't change any setting or switch to another game or Red Zone channel without restarting the app. Restarting generally fixes the app, but there have been more then a handful of times where when after restarting you get a pop up box that says they are experiencing technical difficulties and to try again later.

    Due to technical difficulties I haven't been able to access a stream from the iPhone yet either over Wifi or 3G. Once I do, I will pass along some shots.

    Here are some shots from the iPad app.
