The regular season kicks off September 10.
But I'm guessing you knew that. It's probably exaggerating to say that "everyone" loves football, but certainly if you're not a fan there's a good chance that someone in your close circle of friends is. Despite some of the tarnish that's been laid on the game since last year's playoffs, it's still an honest, American, fun way for people to come together and share something they enjoy.
And of course you know there's really only one way to get every NFL game, every week, and that's DIRECTV. This year there are more options than ever for watching, including live streaming so you can bring the game with you wherever you go (even to a friend's house where you can lord it over them.) The best news is that there's still time to order and know that you'll be all set from the first scrimmage to the last spike.
Order NFL Sunday Ticket now and you'll be sure that it's active on your account, without having to worry that a busy call queue or overloaded server will hold you up. It's true that the first weekend is typically free for everyone, and that tends to create a stampede of people ordering. You want to be ready to go before that stampede happens, of course, You want to make sure that the apps are installed on your devices and the channels are added to your favorites list.
But how to order? Calling DIRECTV is a great option at 1-800-DIRECTV or you can simply order at DIRECTV.com. There have been reports of people with AT&T internet calling 1-800-DIRECTV and getting sent straight to untrained AT&T techs. Personally I think that's pretty unlikely but then again you do want to make sure that you take care of everything well in advance because you wouldn't want that to be a problem for you.
