No DirecTV Subscription: Know Alternate Ways To Get Sunday Ticket

October 5, 2021

Game Streaming available on Sundays starts from 12:45 PM to 8:15 PM ET in the regular season. The National Football League (NFL) is the professional football league of America that consists of 32 national teams. It is more than just a sport to people. 

We eagerly await the whole year for this to begin. However, the broadcast rights are reserved for only a few streaming platforms. Another downside of this game is the regional restrictions that play a huge role in its demand. Streaming any NFL game is comparatively expensive and complicated. 

The exclusive NFL package is only available with DirecTV, but have you ever wondered what you can do if you do not have DirecTV?

For instance, if you are residing outside the local area of your team, this is when NFL Sunday Ticket could prove to be helpful. It airs out-of-market games irrespective of your location.
