DIRECTV claims to be the “undisputed leader in sports” and much of the credit for that title comes from their exclusive sports package, NFL SUNDAY TICKET (NFLST). Outside of your local sports bar (which likely has the commercial version of NFLST), it’s the only way to watch every live, out-of-market game, every Sunday.

NFL SUNDAY TICKET is a must-have for football fanatics, and it’s especially treasured by transplants who have virtually no other way to watch their favorite team each week.

If you can’t get enough NFL action, or “your” team isn’t the home team and you want a sure-fire way to catch your team’s game every week, NFL SUNDAY TICKET is the way to go.


In short, NFL SUNDAY TICKET shows every live, out-of-market NFL broadcast, every Sunday during the regular season. It does not give you in-market broadcasts, or any pre-season, post-season, Monday night or Thursday night games.

Out-of-market games are NFL SUNDAY TICKET’s main selling point, but the package also comes with some added features that will delight any true fan of the game.

  • Live game updates and stats – Check the scores and teams stats around the league without leaving the channel or game you’re on.
  • Individual player tracking – Select up to 20 players each week to keep up with on game day and get screen alerts when one makes a big (fantasy football scoring) play.
  • Live game streaming – An NFL SUNDAY TICKET subscription gets you access to the NFL SUNDAY TICKET App, which enables live game streaming on one device.
  • Multi-game viewing – The DIRECTV Sports Mix channel lets you watch four or eight sports channels at once. If you have NFL SUNDAY TICKET, all four or eight of those channels could be live NFL games, all in HD.
  • Abridged games – The Short Cuts channel shows full games minus the commercials and time between plays so you can watch an entire game in less than 30 minutes. Every one of Sunday’s games are available on the Short Cuts channel the following Monday through Wednesday, including any in-market games that were blacked out.


NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX offers everything you’d get with the standard NFLST, along with some added channels. An NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX subscription will cost you around $100 more than the standard package and comes with:

  • DIRECTV Red Zone® Channel – The Red Zone Channel is the ultimate highlight reel, complete with every one of Sunday’s touchdown-scoring plays. Note: this is a separate channel from the NFL Network’s RedZone channel.
  • DIRECTV Fantasy Zone® Channel – Get the competitive edge with in-depth analysis, stats, predictions and more around the biggest playmakers in the league.
