Can you track Yahoo! Fantasy Football stats with the Fantasy Football App? The web-site says you can, but I've had no success logging in.

It doesn't recognize my log-in information, so I'm assuming the web-site hasn't been corrected.  Can you only track nfl.com fantasy football with the app?

I'm having the same problem. Don't bother to call them. I got a tech who I had to explain fantasy football to and then she still kept talking about NFL sunday ticket apps. Pure frustration. No answers.

Unfortunately no. Their support page for this question has posted incorrect information. With the Fantasy Football TV App, you can only track your players if you have a league set up with NFL.com. Yahoo! sports, ESPN or other fantasy websites do not work with the DirecTV Fantasy Football TV App. I have tried everything and customer service says they are working to correct their website (on the Support Q&A pages) to provide correct information.

If you have purchased a Cinema Connection Kit (CCK) to hook up to your DirecTV receiver so that you can have Internet access with your DirecTV receiver, call and request a refund. If you have the CCK for the purpose of the other TV Apps, then enjoy. However, if you are like me and wanted the luxury of live updates via the Fantasy Football TV App, it only works if your league is set up with NFL.com.

There is the Channel 701 Player Tracker system built into the Sunday Ticket package, and I have not had the chance to see exactly how the "live" notifications work with it. I have it set up for games this Sunday (9/8/13) and I will report after the games to see how the Player Tracker system works. You can only set up 2 teams (9 players each), which lets you put in your weekly fantasy players (1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 Defense) for each team. 18 players total. The issue is that you have to update (drop players/add players) each week, while on the Fantasy Football TV App, my impression is that once you update your fantasy football roster each week, the TV App would automatically update with your changes. However, that will only work if you have your fantasy football league set up through NFL.com.

Thanks for the thorough input.  Player Tracker will have to suffice for now.  I'm guessing the issue has something to do with the exclusivity contract that DirecTV has with NFL for the Sunday Ticket.  I believe it expires in 2014, so maybe we'll see some sort of change in a season or two.
