If you’re bored today and you haven’t decided whether or not you want a whole season worth of football, you’ll want to check out the FREE preview of DIRECTV’s award-winning NFL SUNDAY TICKET programming package. It’s every game in the country, all for you!

Every game, every Sunday

You probably don’t need me to sell you on this package. You probably know that you get every game, plus the Game Mix Channel, Red Zone Channel, Fantasy Tracker, and you can stream it all on your mobile device. You’re just trying to figure out how you’ll pay for it, or how you’ll explain the charge to someone else in your household.

NFL Sunday Ticket isn’t the cheapest package, but no other package gives you this much football entertainment. This is three solid months of Sunday entertainment, and when you look at it that way, it’s pretty reasonable. Not only that, it’s perfect for “displaced fans.” Whether you’re a Green Bay fan who moved out of Wisconsin decades ago or a St. Louis resident who lost his Rams a few years ago, there’s only one way to get your “home team” when home is somewhere far away.

Ignore the rumors. NFL is here to stay.

Every year you hear the same old stories about NFL football. Kids are growing up without it, they say. The criminal acts by the players off the field are a problem, they say. And in recent years, we’ve had politics to contend with. (The less said about that at this blog, the better.)

Still, NFL football keeps on going, year after year. It’s still the highest rated sport and it’s still the way that a lot of people spend their fall. It’s AT&T’s most popular live TV package, and one of its most profitable. Back when AT&T was considering buying DIRECTV some years ago, the word was … no NFL, no DIRECTV. You can see why. It’s just a big part of the live TV universe.

Sunday Ticket is an exclusive on DIRECTV… now and in the future.

You might have read a few months ago that the NFL had a decision to make. There was a clause in the contract that would have allowed them to renegotiate AT&T’s exclusive right to NFL Sunday Ticket. Simply put, they didn’t do that. The only way you’ll get NFL Sunday Ticket is with DIRECTV Satellite. None of the other AT&T live TV properties have it. There is a backdoor for people who truly aren’t able to get satellite TV, but it’s going to be impossible for most people to get.

The good news is that if you have DIRECTV Satellite you also get the streaming version of Sunday Ticket. That means you can take it with you on your mobile device and never miss a minute. You also get the Red Zone Channel so you never have to miss a minute of the action.
