I’m a big Madden fan, and I’ve got to warn you I’m quite good at it. I’d be better online if my internet wasn’t so awful but that’s besides the point. I’m assuming you’re reading this because you’re curious why you need to by the Anniversary Edition of the upcoming Madden. Well I’ll tell you.
Some of us are greatly effected by the uncooperative local programming schedules, for us NFL Sunday Ticket has been a godsend, but it’s not the most affordable package. EA and DirectTV are looking to make things a bit easier on your wallet this year.
The Madden NFL 25 Anniversary Edition comes packed with a season-long subscription to NFL Sunday Ticket (17 weeks, typically $49.99 per month for five months), which is even usable by those who aren’t subscribers to DirectTV (via computers and mobile devices). Additionally, the upgraded version will bestow a new Madden Ultimate Team virtual trading card pack during each week of the regular season. The Anniversary Edition will retail for $99.99 and will be sold only through Amazon.
- Fans who are not currently DIRECTV subscribers but are able to receive DIRECTV service 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.
- Fans who are already DIRECTV and NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX subscribers can access NFL SUNDAY TICKET on computer and mobile devices using their 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 DIRECTV’s award-winning RED ZONE CHANNEL®.
- Owners of the Anniversary Edition will also receive an exclusive Madden Ultimate Team pack each week of the NFL season, starting week 1 through week 17.
