Should you be excited about NFL games streaming over the internet?

You’ve seen ads promising to let you stream NFL games. Are they even worth considering?

Last year, Twitter began streaming NFL games. The social media giant reports that an estimate 3.5 million people used its social media service to tune in to those Thursday night games. Given this success, it’s reported that Amazon, Facebook, and YouTube want to get in on the act. Why? Advertising opportunities, of course. Unlike movies and series, live events such as NFL football offer advertisers a unique opportunity to reach the seemingly unreachable streaming audience. Amazon, Facebook, and YouTube want to join Twitter in the milking of this cash cow.

NFL fans interested in streaming football games might soon learn if their favorite sport is headed to Amazon, Facebook, and YouTube. It’s reported that NFL executives will be meeting with owners to discuss, among other things, the streaming the sport. Anyone interested in watching football on their favorite social media or other platform will be interested in the results of this meeting.

While streaming NFL games sounds interesting, so far it’s nothing more than a novelty to hardcore football fans. If you’re serious about your pro football, you couldn’t rely upon Twitter for all the games. The popular social media platform only streamed a whopping total of 10 Thursday night games. If any of these services want to attract serious football fans, they will have to make more games available… a lot more.

Today, there’s only one way to get the complete NFL experience and that’s DIRECTV. The satellite TV provider’s NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX viewing package is a football fan’s dream come true. It lets you see every game from every NFL team. SUNDAY TICEKT MAX is available in satellite dish or as a streaming-only package for most Apple and Android mobile devices. You also can use your PS4 or Xbox One to stream NFL content to your TV. Streaming the games comes free with your DIRECTV satellite TV subscription.

DIRECTV’s NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX offers a lot more than just football games. Here are some of the other benefits that DIRECTV offers with this viewing package:

  • The Game Mix channel, which allows you to watch multiple games at the same time.
