"Customers who purchased NFL SUNDAY Ticket through Playstation will receive a credit through the Playstation Network," the tweet said.

The credit is expected to be $24.99, another DIRECTV tweet said. Another DIRECTV tweet confidently added that PS3 subscribers "should have no issues next weekend."

DIRECTV's Twitter page also mentioned that some users of its NFL to GO app, which enables Sunday Ticket subscribers to watch the games on iPads and other mobile devices, were also experiencing problems. At one point, DIRECTV said it needed to disable its interactive features, such as Game Mix, on its regular satellite broadcast to help fix the various technical issues.

However, besides that, there was no evidence that DIRECTV subs watching NFL Ticket games on their home TV suffered any
long term problems.
