    DirecTV streaming to iPad?

    Did anyone catch the new DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket commercial that ran last night during "The Closer"? They highlighted: "DirecTV has also launched a new mobile version of its NFL Sunday Ticket package called NFL Sunday Ticket To-Go, which promises live game streaming on iPhone, iPad, "select Android, Blackberry smartphone and Windows Mobile devices," and Palm Pre handsets.

    Does anyone know how this will work? Is it through an app or HTML5?

    I'd love to watch live TV on my iPad when I'm on the road and my Hava Monsoon does not stream to the iPad...

    Thanks!

    There's an app link at the bottom left corner. I couldn't open the description page, must be US only...

    Yes, DirecTV introduced this service last year for the IPhone. I have had the Sunday Ticket Package ever since it was first introduced and quite honestly it is the only reason why I keep DirecTV and don't change over to Verizon FIOS. From what I recall, in order to get/use the app you have to have the HD/Premium Sunday Ticket Package which I believe is an additional $10 (or so) per month. I did use it a few times last year. Worked out great over WIFI - although it will almost always blackout your local team. Worked ok over 3G - but most of the time had that heavy pixelated look to it.

    Direct Tv renamed the entire NFL package and left off the Premium. For 6 payments of $49.99 you get the NFL Sunday Ticket. This year it includes the NFL Superfan. To use the app you have to also subscribe to the additional plan called NFL Sunday Ticket to GO. It is 6 payments of $9.99. I thought the view on my iPhone was great! Can't wait to watch it on the iPad!

    Cool The iPad is a beautiful TV!

    I watch all the live programming I'm subscribed to on my iPad and I don't pay anything extra for this service on my monthly bill. I also don't have Directv. I switched to DISH Network when I started working for them, and I'm very pleased that I get my hands on cool gadgets like the Sling Adapter before people who are subscribed to other providers. I'm looking forward to the iPad2's release to give my TV viewing a better look!

    taudelt, you could get a slingbox and the slingplayer app for the ipad. You would be able to stream any of the channels you are subscribed to and there will be no monthly payments after the equipment purchase (just your cable subscription). I had a slingbox AV which worked on my iPhone (even though it said it wasn't supported it still worked) but did not work on my iPad. You have to have the Solo or Pro-HD, so I went down to BestBuy and picked up a Solo and now I'm a happy camper. My iPad is wifi only so I can't comment on streaming over 3G but over wif it is pretty darn good.

    I second the Slingbox. I travel a lot to Canada where the TV programming -- how should I say this -- sucks! Took me a while to get it working inside my firewall, but it was well worth the effort. As for DirecTv, the only things they support AFIK is Sunday ticket, HBOGO and MAXGO. I haven't found a way to watch network TV or the other movie channels.

    Yes we Canadians lack the media savvy to create such masterful work as "Dwayne The Dog Bounty Hunter", "Storage Wars"
    "Jersey Shore" and the critically acclaimed
    "Keeping Up With The Kardashians".

    OMG, I've never even heard of those. But yes, there's a lot of stupid stuff on US television too... it may be that the number of channels in hotels are limited. I just know that when I'm in Canada, I can only find only one channel airing shows I enjoy (like Bones, CSI or NCIS).

    Curious to know what programs you're missing in Canada since we import a lot of U.S. content.
