DirecTV Mulls Bringing NFL Sunday Ticket to Apple TV, Boxee, and Other Streaming Devices

There are only a few ways you can see Peyton Manning assume the fetal position at the first sound of footsteps, see Brett Favre throw a bullet pass to the wrong team, and watch Tom Brady pick apart the opponent all in the same day. One way is to drive really fast to different parts of the country and tune into the local broadcast. A better option, however, is to subscribe to NFL Sunday Ticket via DirecTV. That won't do you any good if you're not a satellite subscriber, at least not yet.

According to Engadget, a tipster wrote in saying some of the questions on a recent DirecTV survey seem to hint rather strongly that the satellite service provider is considering making NFL Sunday Ticket available to several Internet-connected devices, including Blu-ray players, TVs, game machines, Apple TV, Roku, and Boxee.

That would be great news for football fans, and would put the NFL on par with some of the other major sports that already offer streaming packages. And speaking of which, DirecTV's survey also gauged subscriber interest in a $20/weekend pricing plan for NFL Sunday Ticket access.
