NFL
NFL
Sunday Ticket is an out-of-market sports package that broadcasts National Football League
National Football League
(NFL) regular season games unavailable on local affiliates. It carries all regional Sunday afternoon games produced by Fox and CBS. The ideal customer of this package is presumed (based on advertisements) to be a fan of a team who is unable to see their team on local television because they do not reside in one of that team's markets, or sports bars who want to increase business by attracting fans of out of town teams. The package is distributed in the United States
United States
exclusively by AT&T Inc. under its DirecTV
DirecTV
unit (which also offers it on the Internet, on certain tablets and smartphones, and JetBlue Airways
JetBlue Airways
flights); in Canada

on streaming service DAZN, in Mexico

and Latin America

United States[edit] Satellite TV provider DirecTV
DirecTV
has exclusive rights to the NFL
NFL
Sunday Ticket package in the United States
United States
until the end of the 2022–23 NFL season. Although other satellite and cable providers supposedly are allowed to bid on the rights to carry NFL
NFL
Sunday Ticket if they agree to carry the NFL
NFL
Network, DirecTV
DirecTV
decided to extend their current contract beyond 2014 by paying the NFL
NFL
$1.5 billion per year for the next eight years. Reaching the deal was also a condition of AT&T's 2015 acquisition of DirecTV[1][2] As of the 2015 season, the service is now available through an online-only subscription exclusively for those who are unable to use DirecTV
DirecTV
services.[3] NFL
NFL
Sunday Ticket viewers do not count towards local Nielsen ratings; thus offering NFL
NFL
Sunday Ticket on cable might cost CBS and Fox affiliates millions of dollars in lost revenue from local commercial breaks (as opposed to national ads sold by the networks). In turn, affiliates help subsidize the networks' programming costs. Since the launch of new satellites, DirecTV
DirecTV
no longer drops other HD feeds to broadcast the NFL
NFL
Sunday Ticket games in HD. DirecTV
DirecTV
offers a free preview of NFL
NFL
Sunday Ticket for the first week of the season. Blackouts[edit] See also: NFL
NFL
local television blackout policies If a game the viewer wishes to watch is blacked out in their home market because it is not sold out, the game remains blacked out on NFL Sunday Ticket. Any other game televised locally is also blacked out (viewers must watch them instead on their local Fox or CBS affiliates).[4] Games joined or switched away from in progress usually have their blackout status altered immediately.[citation needed] The NFL
NFL
has suspended the local blackout policy for the 2015 NFL
NFL
regular season.[5] Extra features[edit] DirecTV
DirecTV
offers the following extra features. From 2005–09 these features were part of an add-on package called Superfan and cost $100 extra. As of 2012, some of them are part of the NFL
NFL
Sunday Ticket Max package which costs an extra $100.[6] Since 2009, all games have been in high definition. The HD games were formerly part of the Superfan package.

Game Mix

This channel shows eight games at once, along with the game's score, time left in the game, and the quarter that the game is in under the game's feed. Starting in 2008, it added a high-definition feed, and in 2011, it added larger cells when four or fewer games are being played.

Red Zone Channel

This channel acts as a viewer's "remote control" and switches around various NFL
NFL
games as plays of interest occur (scoring plays, key turnovers, etc.) The coverage is hosted by NFL
NFL
Network's Andrew Siciliano and has been offered on some airlines, such as JetBlue. As of 2012, it is only available on the new NFL
NFL
Sunday Ticket Max package.[6] As of the 2007 season, this channel is provided in HD. Note: This is not to be confused with the Scott Hanson-hosted NFL RedZone, which is produced separately by NFL
NFL
Network. That channel airs at the same time on Dish Network, various cable systems, and also on Verizon Wireless
Verizon Wireless
smartphones.

Short Cuts

This two-channel duo recaps every NFL
NFL
game in 30 minutes or less, including games not available on NFL
NFL
Sunday Ticket because they were televised locally or blacked out. One channel shows AFC games while the other shows NFC games. These highlights are made available on Sunday nights and are shown continuously until Tuesday morning. As of 2012, it is only available on the new NFL
NFL
Sunday Ticket Max package.[6]

Highlights on Demand

DirecTV
DirecTV
subscribers with interactive DVRs receive a three- to four-minute recap of every NFL
NFL
Sunday Ticket game on demand with this feature, via channel 1005. As of 2012, it is only available on the new NFL
NFL
Sunday Ticket Max package.[6]

NFL.com Fantasy Football TV app

Starting in 2011, the NFL.com Fantasy Football TV app will allow NFL.com fantasy players with Internet-connected set-top boxes to view their NFL.com Fantasy Football teams and scores directly on their TV screen. Computers, tablets and smartphones[edit] NFL
NFL
Sunday Ticket Max subscribers can also stream games on the Internet and their smartphones and tablets.[6] Starting in 2009, NFL Sunday Ticket To Go is also available to non- DirecTV
DirecTV
subscribers who are unable to receive satellite television in their homes or apartments due to line of sight issues. The cost is $50 more than those with DirecTV
DirecTV
service. DirecTV

Xbox 360
and Xbox One video game consoles.[7][8] JetBlue

The concept of NFL
NFL
Sunday Ticket was largely invented by Jon Taffer during his three-year term on the board of NFL
NFL
Enterprises, along with NFL
NFL
Chief of Marketing Michael Miller.[9] NFL
NFL
Sunday Ticket was launched in 1994 and was available on both DirecTV
DirecTV
(which had launched just months earlier) and on C band and Ku band
Ku band
satellites, for which the receiving dishes are larger in size.[citation needed] Within several years, the service became available on various cable systems in Canada

as well.[citation needed] International distribution[edit]

(for business customers only). Canada[edit] NFL
NFL
Sunday Ticket was previously available in Canada
Canada
through most major pay television providers, often in a bundle with other sports packages. In July 2017, it was announced that the streaming service DAZN had acquired the rights to the NFL's out-of-market package beginning in the 2017 NFL
NFL
season. The games previously available through this service, as well as NFL
NFL
Game Pass, are bundled with the provider's service in Canada.[10][11][12] However, after DAZN's Canadian launch was met with frequent technical problems and user criticism, DAZN announced that it had begun to offer NFL

Sunday Ticket to television providers as an alternative to its over-the-top product.[13] México and Central America[edit]
