    I am excited because I have FINALLY signed up for Directv with the NFL ticket :D

    My question from those of you who have had it before is that when I look at the schedule some of the games are not listed in the Directv schedule. I figured out some of them are not listed because they are Sunday and Monday night games. But the Tampa game is also not listed even though it is not a night game. Do you get ALL of the games? Are nationally televised games not on the NFL ticket?

    You will get every Sunday Game that is played on Sunday afternoon unless they are blacked out in your area. And if you live more than 100 miles from the market of a particluar team, then you won't be blacked out at all.

    Some of the games are not listed because they have not been assigned channels yet. Don't worry, you will see all the games.

    The Tampa Bay game is on Thanksgiving, televised nationally by FOX, so that's why it's not listed as part of the DirecTV package along with any other nationally televised games throughout the season.

    If a game is played on Sunday afternoon, no matter wheather or not it is nationally televised, it will be on Sunday Ticket, unless your local affilliate is carrying it. That's the other thing, if your local affliliate is carrying a game it will be blacked out on your direct tv. So get the local channels.

    Right. What I meant by nationally televised was Sunday night games on NBC, Monday night games on ESPN, Thanksgiving day games or any games on the NFL Network. I doubt any Sunday afternoon games go to 100% of the country.

    Last year I think there was a game the Cowboys played, I think the Panthers game that went all over the country except for Washington State.
