NFL Sunday Ticket Will Offer Free Preview


Q. DIRECTV usually has a free preview of all the NFL Sunday Ticket games on the first week of games. But I haven’t seen anything about it yet. No announcements or whatever. So will there be a preview or not? — Shelley, Santa Fe, New Mexico. 

Shelley, you are right. DIRECTV has held a free preview of the NFL Sunday Ticket on the first Sunday of the regular season for years.

And I am happy to report that the satellite TV service will do so again this Sunday, September 8, 2019.

The free preview will include all the games as well as features such as Game Mix which offers up to eight games on one screen at the same time.

The free preview will be available in DIRECTV’s channel 700s. (Note: The Sunday Ticket price is $293.94 for the entire season.)

As for the live streaming option, which is available to some non-DIRECTV subscribers, it will also include a free, seven-day trial.

Hope that helps, Shelley. Happy viewing!

  1. Re NFL Sunday Ticket . . . I am a grad student in NYC. They say there is a Student rate (as has ben case in past) and in Manhattan, tall apt. bldgs, streaming of Ticket has been regular for years.

    I keep following NFL Sunday Ticket links ostensibly to the Student page to order, instead keep winding up where they want to sell me Direct TV Satellite and they forget they promised this page would direct me to the Student Sunday Ticket, presumably ala carte.

    Can you direct me to a correct link to simply get Ticket so I can watch online – streaming & via app?
