With the absence of an app, Windows Tablet users will have to use the DirecTV site to stream the Sunday Ticket to a device and it was awesome to see how well it worked. This past Sunday I was watching the NFL games at home and decided to use the online streaming of the NFL Ticket as well.
If you do not know, the NFL Sunday Ticket allows you to watch any of the NFL games that are broadcasting on different channels on your TV or you can log into to your account online and stream the games to your PC. With the Surface RT supporting many popular websites, it came as no surprise that the DirecTV NFL Ticket worked on the Microsoft Surface too. On the other, hand how well the site worked was both a surprise and a pleasure to experience.
Logging into the DirecTV site was as expected and one I was in I simply choose the game I wanted to watch. The game came up immediately and looked great. I used the Surface all day to watch the opposite game of what I had on the main TV, and is has done great while tailgating. So if you are on the fence about getting a Surface RT, here is just another reason you should grab Microsoft’s Tablet.
