Good news for folks without DIRECTV access: NFL Sunday Ticket will once again be available on the PS3 for the 2012 season. The package will cost $300, down $40 from last season, and will include HD streams for all Sunday out of market games as well as the Red Zone Channel. The Sunday Ticket app had a rough launch last year with stream quality issues, so we're hopeful that's all resolved for the start of this season. Sunday Ticket will launch on the PlayStation Network on Tuesday, September 4.
Update: Sunday Ticket on the PS3 got off to a solid start with the opening weekend of the 2012 NFL season. The stream stability for games was good, and switching between games was reasonably fast. We'd still like to see the video quality improve -- it's not as good as what we're seeing out of MLB.TV on the PSN and Xbox Live. For folks without DIRECTV, the Sunday Ticket service is still a very good option.
