NFL Sunday Ticket stays on DirecTV for the subsequent eight years
Questioning if the NFL would take its supersized Sunday Ticket viewing package deal to a different supplier, or even to an web firm like Google? You’ll be able to cease now — the league and DirecTV have “prolonged and expanded” their unique settlement for an unspecified variety of years. In response to Darren Rovell, it is an eight yr deal value some $1.5 billion yearly — greater than the earlier 4 yr settlement that value DirecTV about $1 billion annually. The large takeaway right here? Issues are staying principally the identical (DirecTV will stream NFL Community to its subscribers cellular units), and AT&T’s settlement to buy DirecTV continues to be on. This season DirecTV modified up its advertising for Sunday Ticket streaming to focus on house dwellers and school college students that may’t get satellite tv for pc dishes. That is what a passage within the press launch promising “expanded streaming rights” refers to, so for now, it does not seem like we’ll see a full on-line-solely providing for soccer followers that solely need to pay to be careful of market video games each weekend.
