For the second-straight week, DirecTV’s “NFL Sunday Ticket” package malfunctioned, which caused fans trying to watch through the app or online to miss entire games.
DirecTV said that the server problems were fixed and that streaming could resume shortly after 4 p.m. EDT. That announcement came way too late for those trying to view the seven early games.
In an efort to get back into the good graces of sports fans, DirecTV intends to reimburse any Sunday Ticket customers who experienced issues in Week 2.
This is the final season that DirecTV will be the exclusive carrier of “Sunday Ticket.” Amazon and Apple are among the bidders for the package of out-of-market games after commissioner Roger Goodell said during the summer that he expected a new carrier.
DirecTV extended its contract in 2014 and pays $1.5 billion per season. The new package is expected to fetch at least $2.5 billion per year.
