The NFL isn’t completely done with DirecTV following the deal that saw Sunday Ticket switch to YouTube TV earlier this year.
On Tuesday, the popular provider announced a multi-year renewal of its agreement with the NFL Media that will make NFL Network available via DirecTV Stream and U-Verse. The deal also includes NFL RedZone across all platforms, which is a first for the company.
While this is great news for subscribers, it won’t be as good for hardcore fans of the version of the show hosted by Andrew Siciliano.
Siciliano has left after a 17-year spell, leaving RedZone in the hands of Scott Hanson. And it doesn’t appear that fans are okay with the development.
NFL Network will be available to Choice subscribers on the satellite version of DirecTV, as well as DirecTV stream.
The additions make it so that subscribers have access to a better Sports Pack, while Stream customers will have a DirecTV Sports Pack for the first time. Both of these packages will include NFL RedZone.
U-Verse customers will be able to access the show through the HD Premium Tier.
Content from the NFL remains the most valuable among sports fans in America. Per Nielsen, 185 million people watched regular-season football games at an average of 16.7 million viewers per game. NFL games made up 88 of the 100 most-watched TV shows in 2022.
