NFL, DirecTV Sued Over Sunday Ticket


A class action attacking the Sunday Ticket package was filed Wednesday in California by Thomas Abrahamian according to Pro Football Talk.

Abrahamian filed the complaint against the NFL, DirecTV, and related defendants.

The lawsuit accuses the NFL and DirecTV of violating federal antitrust laws by requiring consumers to purchase all Sunday afternoon out-of-market games, even if the customer wants to see the out-of-market games for one team only.

“The League and DirecTV offer NFL Sunday Ticket only as all-or-nothing,” the complaint alleges at paragraph 36. “Purchasers of NFL Sunday Ticket must buy all out-of-market games for all teams even if they are only interested in watching the games of a particular team. Likewise, consumers must buy the complete season of games and may not purchase individual games.”

It’s a waste of time in my opinion.

There’s is no market for purchasing one or two games each week. Either get the Redzone channel, or watch the game of the week on your local affiliate.
