NFL SUNDAY TICKET Review: Packages, Prices, and More
The NFL season is still on—find out if SUNDAY TICKET is the best way to catch all your favorite NFL games.
Is NFL SUNDAY TICKET worth it?
NFL SUNDAY TICKET gets you every out-of-market NFL game—that’s around 150 games total—for $293.94 a season.* So if you’re obsessed with an NFL team far from home, then NFL SUNDAY TICKET is a dream come true. But if you’re a local NFL fan, you might consider passing it up.
*Price is for 2020 NFL Season and is subject to change.
NFL SUNDAY TICKET deals and promotions
If you sign up for DIRECTV CHOICE™ or any higher package, DIRECTV will include NFL SUNDAY TICKET for the first year at no extra cost.
Just remember you’ll be paying full price during the second year of your contract. And if you want to cancel, you’ll have to pay $20 for every month left on your contract.
NFL SUNDAY TICKET packages and prices
*/mo. for 12 mos. plus taxes and RSN fee.
You can pretty much only get NFL SUNDAY TICKET from DIRECTV (with two exceptions, but we’ll talk about those later). If you sign up for a basic DIRECTV package or already have a DIRECTV package, you can add NFL SUNDAY TICKET for $293.94 a season.
While this will get you all the NFL games you can handle, you should consider upgrading to a DIRECTV CHOICE package or higher. With these packages, you’ll get NFL SUNDAY TICKET included free for the first year. Even with the package’s price increase, you’ll save money over the course of your two-year contract.
Be warned: DIRECTV, like other satellite and cable companies, does have little fees that start to add up. For example, there is a $19.95 activation fee and a $8.00 monthly regional sports fee. Those aren’t big expenses on their own, but keep an eye on them so they don’t run away with you.
And then there’s NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX. For about $100 more per month you’ll get all of NFL SUNDAY TICKET plus extra channels like NFL RedZone and DIRECTV FANTASY ZONE. If you’re into fantasy football or obsessive about seeing every score, MAX might be right for you.
NFL SUNDAY TICKET streaming
You can stream NFL SUNDAY TICKET on one device at a time (seriously?) by using the NFL SUNDAY TICKET app. All you need is a DIRECTV plan, an NFL SUNDAY TICKET subscription, and a supported device like a smartphone or gaming system.
Like we said earlier, if you qualify, you can also stream NFL SUNDAY TICKET without a DIRECTV subscription.
NFL SUNDAY TICKET specs and features
NFL SUNDAY TICKET is all about getting you as much football as possible, and with the Game Mix viewing feature, you can watch four to eight games simultaneously. Now try and tell us that’s not enough football!
We also love the Short Cuts feature that shortens every game to as little as 30 minutes. Skipping the commercials and timeouts, you get all the big moments with none of the waiting. You’ll never miss a big story again.
NFL SUNDAY TICKET app
Plus, the NFL SUNDAY TICKET app lets you watch the game from a ton of devices. But be warned—you can still stream on only one device at a time, so this isn’t a service for sharing with old college buddies living across country.
Finally, if fantasy football is your game, then you’ll love the Player Tracker feature. Keep up-to-date on your players’ performances and be ready with all the trash talk you need when your team claims victory.
NFL SUNDAY TICKET is pretty awesome at covering all your out-of-market-game needs, but the service will cost you a lot. Sign up or upgrade to the CHOICE package if you want to save yourself the first-year price tag of around 300 bucks.
We say, if you’re obsessed with the entire NFL, or if you live far away from your team, then go for it. Otherwise, you might try a streaming service, like Sling TV, that offers good NFL coverage for cheap.
NFL SUNDAY TICKET FAQ
