DirecTV Considering Dropping NFL Sunday Ticket

Sunday Ticket

Once the NFL Network created their own RED ZONE channel and all the cable operators picked it up, I had a feeling that the DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket could be in trouble.

Especially, for people like me, who just like football and don’t necessary just follow one team all the time. Why pay for an expensive package and contract with DirecTV, when I can pay a small monthly fee to my Cable provider and see every single important play of the season?

That is one of the reasons DirecTV might give up their exclusive rights.

DirecTV CFO Pat Doyle said at a Wednesday investors conference that, if the price goes up too high when the current NFL Sunday Ticket deal expires after the 2014 season, DirecTV would consider “striking a non-exclusive deal with the NFL or possibly even dropping the popular package,” writes the Hollywood Reporter, via SportsBusiness Daily.
