DirecTV’s ‘NFL Sunday Ticket’ Now Available On PlayStation 3 For A Hefty $339

By | Wednesday August 17, 2011 @ 7:43pm PDT

Sony, in partnership with DirecTV, said today that the satellite TV provider’s popular NFL Sunday Ticket service will be available for live streaming on PlayStation 3 consoles. The package allows viewers to watch out-of-market games and comes free with a DirecTV subscription. The fee for existing subscribers to add Sunday Ticket on their console will be an additional $50 at the start of the season. But PlayStation 3 users who want the NFL package but don’t have DirecTV will have to shell out $339.95. The package will feature up to 14 games a week in high-def and include DirecTV’s Red Zone Channel, which provides scoring highlights from around the NFL.

“We know that PlayStation fans are huge sports enthusiasts, so adding NFL Sunday Ticket is the perfect complement to the PS3’s rapidly growing lineup of sports entertainment,” Philip Rosenberg, SVP business development, said on the PlayStation blog. Major League Baseball and the NHL are currently available on the consoles. For now, the deal is exclusive. “We just want to work with a single partner this time around to give everyone a great experience,” DirecTV director of public relations Robert Mercer told Shacknews.

Mike Sitrick, Shame On You…

By | Thursday July 12, 2007 @ 5:31pm PDT

sitrick.jpgI’ve known Mike Sitrick for a long time. He’s a PR maven who prides himself on being a family man. Which is why he should be filled with self-loathing for allowing his firm to promote a torture porn pic like Captivity, much less an even more disgusting premiere party whose selling point was its political incorrectness. (Let me make it perfectly clear: I support talent’s right to make the movie, just not business people profiting from it.) Sure, I received all those inane emails announcing the bash, and I did the right thing: I trashed them. Other journalists fell all over themselves covering the event so as to diss it: really, they’re lemmings hurling themselves off the cliff. There is only one way to stop the business of these torture porn movies: by shaming the people who receive money for releasing them, publicizing them, having anything to do with them. So, Mike, how could you? (And how could you, After Dark’s  Courtney Solomon and Allan Zeman?) Take that Captivity money and donate it to charity and pledge publicly right now you’ll never get involved with torture porn pics again. Until Mike does, I urge Hollywood and other companies to shun Sitrick and Company because there is such a thing as guilt by association.
