Of course, this is how they would make up the difference between those that have DirecTV, and those who don't, who want NFL ST. I still say wait and see. We should know more about it by August 15th or so. By then, they will be in full swing on advertising for the upcoming year, and PS3 people should know by then how much it will cost for the whole year.
The other leagues, MLB/NHL/NBA, are LIGHTYEARS ahead of the NFL when it comes to online streaming capabilities of it's regular season games. Granted, they are not as popular as the NFL, but the NFL has fallen way behind in the regard for a new revenue stream.
I got MLB.TV for a special "Fathers Day" price of $50 for the rest of the year. Even the cost of $100/year at the start of the season is a GREAT COST for all the games(except those considered local to your area). I have TWC Standard averaging 8.30-9.50 Dowload speed, and "RARELY" have any stuttering stopping of a feed through my PS3/Roku/LG ST600. My Samsung TV's interfaces are a little left to be desired because they constantly have a reminder popping up on screen telling you they are adjusting the picture for optimal perfomance due to stream strength. Really annoying. Just do it, and don' t tell me.
Sorry to get off topic. Back to the NFL Rant .
