    Seriously! You don't need to be a subscriber... Just be in the USA!

    What it boils down too: buy Madden Anniversary Edition ($100). Either play the game or sell it, whatever (could get $30 back). Enter code. Watch some NFL Ticket for 2013!

    Add cost of setting up Computer to stream to TV, and it's still a bargain!

    Great find, I'm in. Found this in Amazon's FAQ on the package:

    Do I need a DirecTV subscription to access NFL Sunday Ticket?
    No, it's not necessary to have a DirecTV subscription. Each Anniversary Edition includes a code that can be redeemed to access the full 2013 regular season (17 weeks) of NFL Sunday Ticket on computer, tablet, and mobile devices.

    Well now I won't..... :sad1:

    I've been with them at the same address since 1998. I was even a USSB subscriber at one time. If I call them to cancel, they better offer me a significant ****ing shareholder position to try to get me to stay.

    Which is probably more likely than them actually offering the Pac-12 Network....

    DD just went for this so hope it is legit. NFL was his biggest issue with dumping DTV so we should all be good now.

    The fine print on this seems to be questionable regarding if it's really free for everyone:

    For those looking for a way to wondering how to get the Sunday Ticket feed on their big screen if they order this Madden deal, take a look at this:

    http://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/devices/chromecast/#netflix

    Should be a pretty simple solution provided you stream the feed from your PC or tablet in a Chrome browser. Unfortunately the initial run sold out pretty much everywhere so you'll have to order now and hope Google delivers by the start of the season. I just ordered mine directly from Google, and they are saying 3-4 weeks for delivery, Amazon is reporting a longer date.

    ****. I haven't bought a new Madden game is about a decade. Looks like I'm going to have to pull the trigger on this deal.

    Sweet, thanks for information. Why does the thread title say don't need dtv for redzone though? We are talking about sunday ticket, right? And to contribute to the thread, someone said you can get $30 for selling madden. I think you get the best prices for selling games to amazon, I think you can get at least $40 back from them. Also people saying they are disappointed that its only on computer, just buy an hdmi cable and connect your laptop to tv. A lot of people don't realize that is all you need to do.

    Don't even need to worry if you don't have an HDMI or DVI out on your laptop, spend 35 bucks on that Google Chromecast I linked above and you can stream wirelessly as long as you stream the feed in a Chrome browser.

    Bump - Amazon delivered mine today. And.... I'm not opening it until someone verifies the Sunday Ticket thing. 2 of 3 current reviews on amazon say it works, the third one says it doesn't. (Although it sort of looks like the third guy is a moron who thinks he gets it on his DTV subscription for free, not on computer/tablet/phone for free.)

    So anyone on here receive it and verify it? God knows why, but I trust random allbuff posters more than random amazon reviewers...

    Just ordered on Amazon with a scheduled delivery date of August 29th. You might consider cancelling your Google order.

    Edit to put Darth on notice that if this doesn't work, I'm filing a class action lawsuit against Kotaku (Gawker Media), Amazon and Darth.

    I sure hope that keeping it real doesn't go wrong in this case.
