I just saw a pretty cool deal I thought I would pass along to you all. I am in no way affiliated with DirecTV or EA Sports. I am a subscriber to DirecTV and quite enjoy it but this post isn’t an advertorial or anything like that.
Just one Chiefs fan passing along a pretty good deal to others.
Apparently Amazon, DirecTV and EA Sports teamed up to do a special offer around the release of the next Madden game, Madden 25.
If you buy a special $99 Anniversary Edition (it is called Madden 25 because this is the 25th anniversary of the game) you can qualify for a special deal that will enable you to get NFL Sunday Ticket on your tablet or computer for free for the entire 2013 season.
I know there are a lot of Chiefs fans scattered around the country that aren’t able to see the game (like myself) so I wanted to share.
Here are the details, from the Amazon website:
Madden NFL 25 — Unlock the power, precision, and creativity of the NFL ballcarrier. Whether you’re a slashing running-back, dual-threat QB, or ball-hawking safety, unleash 30 new moves and string together devastating combos with the all-new precision modifier.
Madden Ultimate Team Subscription — Starting Week 1 of the NFL season and continuing through Week 17, receive one pack a week for use in Madden Ultimate Team. The Madden NFL 25 Anniversary Edition packs feature 2 rare players, 4 silver players and 4 bronze players.
Exclusive Offers From DirecTV
For fans who are not currently DirecTV subscribers but are able to receive DirecTV service, they will receive a promo code entitling them to $10 off per month for their first year of service and one year of NFL Sunday Ticket Max at no additional charge.
For fans who are already DirecTV and NFL Sunday Ticket Max subscribers, you can access NFL Sunday Ticket on your computer, tablet, and mobile devices using your current DirecTV username and password.
For fans unable to receive DirecTV service, each Madden NFL 25 Anniversary Edition will include a unique code to access the 2013 regular season (17 weeks) trial of NFL Sunday Ticket on computers, tablets, and mobile devices- including access to the award-winning Red Zone Channel.
Clearly the last option is ideal because you don’t have to commit to a subscription to DirecTV if you don’t want to. So you essentially get Madden 25, which usually costs $60 and NFL Sunday Ticket, which now costs $200, I think, for $99. Essentially, you get Sunday Ticket for $40. If you have solid internet speeds, you can probably hook your computer up to your TV to watch the games, depending on the resolution they offer.
I am sure there is some more fine print for you to read so be careful. I am not sure how DirecTV determines whether or not you are eligible to receive it. Some folks might be in an area that has DirecTV service but may live in an apartment building that doesn’t allow dishes. I’d do some research before committing but if you can find a way to make it work, it is a pretty solid deal.
As for me, I will probably be re-upping my DirecTV account this summer. I’ve been happy with my two years of service. Anything is better than the hell that was Time Warner Cable.
Here is a link to the deal. If anyone gets it, let me know how it turns out.
