Looking for a place to watch the game? Check out DIRECTV’s Sports Bar Finder app!

Spoiler alert: It’s free. If you’re looking for a place to settle in for the afternoon and enjoy some sports, for those days when the man-cave just doesn’t cut it, how about checking out DIRECTV’s Sports Bar Finder app? It’s free at the App Store and Google Play, and you’ll get instant locations and directions of every sports bar in your area with DIRECTV! (And what kind of sports bar would it be without DIRECTV?)

Use it at home or while away

This is a total no-brainer, why wonder if a new watering hole will be able to show the game… just find out before leaving the house! There are over 100,000 bars and restaurants listed, and you can even filter by the sports you’re interested in to make sure that game will be available when you get there.

With the latest version of the app, you can even get Yelp reviews to decide which bar to go to, and GPS directions to help get you there.

As of right now, there’s no partnering with rideshare services but please, do us all a favor and use one if you’ve taken advantage “a bit too much.”

Blackouts stink. Deal with them by spending time with new friends.

The only issue with some sports on TV is “the blackout rule.” Some sports still have rules that say if the home team doesn’t sell out, the game can’t be televised. Those rules don’t make much sense today which is why the NFL and other leagues don’t have them anymore.

If the game is blacked out on your local channel, a bar with DIRECTV might be able to get the “away team” broadcast sometimes. Even if they can’t, it’s always going to be better to spend time with new and old buddies complaining, rather than sitting in the house sulking. With this app, you’ll know where to spend your time grousing.

Bar owners: get in on the action

What about you sports bar owners? Have you checked to make sure you’re listed on the app? Chances are you are, but why not download the app to make sure, and while you’re there check out the competition! It might be worth a few minutes so you know whether or not you need to up your game.

If you don’t find yourself listed, and you want to be, call your DIRECTV dealer. If you activated your service with Solid Signal, call us at 888-233-7563.
