Gridiron HD the ticket this fall for DirecTV
DirecTV Inc. will be offering up to 100 HD broadcasts of NFL football games next season as part of its NFL Sunday Ticket service, which allows customers to view out-of-market games.
Fox Sports and CBS sports will provide the broadcasts, which will be available to all DirecTV customers who have the satellite provider's HD system equipment and subscribe to NFL Sunday Ticket. DirecTV said it will determine which games it carries in HD on a week-by-week basis, and make the information available each Thursday preceding Sunday's games.
"This is five times as many NFL HD games as we offered last season and is yet another example of DirecTV giving consumers programming that cable can't match," said Stephanie Campbell, the company's executive vice president of programming, in a release.
DirecTV has been offering NFL Sunday Ticket for 10 years. This year, new subscribers can purchase the football package for $249.
