NFL SUNDAY TICKET includes a wide range of football programming. NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX expands on this already broad range of offerings with access to even more great football content.
With NFL SUNDAY TICKET, you get access to out-of-market games. This includes all the teams outside of your local area, anywhere in the United States. Since your local network pays millions for access to local football games, you’ll still need a local TV service provider to watch your local team.
NFL SUNDAY TICKET also includes DIRECTV Mix Channels, DIRECTV Player Tracker to keep up with your favorite players, real-time stats and scores, out-of-market games On Demand, and streaming to all your devices, like your laptop, phone, and tablet. NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX expands on the base package with access to NFL RED ZONE CHANNEL, DIRECTV FANTASY ZONE, and NFL SUNDAY TICKET Shortcuts, which condenses full games down to 30 minutes.
NFL SUNDAY TICKET Cost Breakdown
NFL SUNDAY TICKET has two plans available; NFL SUNDAY TICKET and NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX. Both plans offer all out-of-market games in HD, but NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX offers additional features like REDZONE CHANNEL, NFL SUNDAY TICKET Shortcuts. Prices are subject to change each season.
What makes NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX stand out?
NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX offers the nonstop action of NFL RED ZONE CHANNEL and the full coverage of all out-of-market games. If your home team is out of state, this is the best option to enjoy the NFL RED ZONE CHANNEL without missing your favorite team’s games in their entirety.
There are other benefits that go along with NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX; the DIRECTV FANTASY ZONE is a hub for fantasy football, offering player stats and in-depth game coverage for fans participating in fantasy football brackets. It’s a great way to gain an edge in your office league.
DIRECTV’s NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX does have one major drawback: the price. At $59.99 per month for six months, the cost can be too steep for fans only interested in the RED ZONE CHANNEL. If you’re already interested in NFL SUNDAY TICKET, the NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX upgrade is a good value for access to NFL RED ZONE CHANNEL, DIRECTV FANTASY ZONE, and DIRECTV Shortcuts.
NFL RED ZONE CHANNEL
NFL RedZone is owned and operated by the NFL, and offers a unique way to experience out-of-market games on Sunday. While DIRECTV’s NFL RED ZONE CHANNEL does not offer full game coverage like DIRECTV’s SUNDAY TICKET, it offers a simultaneous highlight reel of multiple games, from 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. every Sunday. The impressive programming circulates between every live game, catching most, if not all, of the significant plays from each game. It offers a unique experience for fans looking to get all of the action, without committing to watching multiple games in their entirety.
NFL RedZone is not offered as a standalone service, but you can access it through your cable or satellite provider. DISH customers have access to NFL RedZone, which costs an additional $13 a month. The DIRECTV NFL RED ZONE CHANNEL and DISH Network’s NFL RedZone are separate products, but offer the same simultaneous highlights, and both are operated by the NFL. For DIRECTV customers, the NFL RED ZONE CHANNEL is currently only offered as part of the NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX package, and cannot be purchased as a standalone channel.
DISH Network’s NFL RedZone cuts the price significantly as compared to DIRECTV’s package deal if you’re only interested in the NFL RED ZONE CHANNEL content. If you’re a football fan on a budget, getting access to the content of Dish’s NFL RedZone may be less expensive than DIRECTV’s SUNDAY TICKET MAX
NFL RED ZONE CHANNEL and NFL SUNDAY TICKET
For dedicated fans of out-of-market teams, NFL SUNDAY TICKET is still one of the best ways to gain access to every minute of every game. There are lots of long-time fans of DIRECTV’s NFL SUNDAY TICKET service, and with good reason; the unprecedented level of coverage leaves enough content to satisfy any die-hard football fan.
NFL RED ZONE CHANNEL’s simulcast format gives you every minute of the action, without needing to commit to entire games (or needing to simultaneously watch 4–8 games on DIRECTV’s Mix channels). This lighter option for enjoying the NFL season appeals to a lot of viewers, especially those on tight schedules. It’s also easier to keep up with the most important plays, players, and teams with RED ZONE CHANNEL, since it condenses the games down to the most important moments, live every Sunday.
Ideally, DIRECTV would offer NFL RED ZONE CHANNEL to customers who aren’t interested in NFL SUNDAY TICKET. However, this isn’t currently offered. This gives DISH customers an edge, and it makes DISH Network’s NFL RedZone a more user-friendly service for football fans.
If you’re a superfan, the NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX is the best of both worlds. While it’s the most expensive of the three options, it offers an unprecedented level of features and access for NFL fans. The combination of NFL SUNDAY TICKET, the RED ZONE and FANTASY ZONE channels, and the 30-minute Short Cuts feature lets you delve deeper into any team’s season performance without restriction.
