Getting fans Sunday Ready since 1994 with every live out-of-market game, every Sunday

Loyal and passionate: 2 words that equally sum up our NFL SUNDAY TICKET subscribers over the last 25 seasons.  


Some of you were plucked from your hometowns or favorite city and forced into a strange new town with new football loyalties. Some of you simply wanted more games, more plays, more football…and the only solution was NFL SUNDAY TICKET on DIRECTV.   

Since 1994, we’ve been serving up Sunday, where you no longer had to be in Dallas to catch your Cowboys games or Wisconsin to see your Packers games. You could follow them and so many other games every week – you just needed a Sunday and the golden ticket.

By 2006, we couldn’t let you miss a scoring play, blocked field goal, or a reason to talk smack to Carol in accounting who’s from Atlanta but claims the Saints because her dad met Archie Manning once. Enter the RED ZONE CHANNEL,* bringing you every scoring drive from around the league.

Fantasy football became a lot less fantasy and a lot more reality in 2014 with the launch of DIRECTV FANTASY ZONE.* Every week you’d sit with Kay Adams for an in-depth fantasy analysis and a few more reasons to be Sunday ready.

Whether you’re a cookout-with-the-family-and-watch-on-your-big-screen kind of viewer, or a sneaking-your-cell-phone-to-stream-the-game-at-dinner kind of viewer, NFL SUNDAY TICKET on DIRECTV has been there for you through it all. 

And, regardless of how long you’ve been a subscriber (shout out to our 750 subscribers who have been with us since the beginning in 1994), you signed up to enjoy the one thing you are most passionate about – football.

Join us for a look at the last 25 seasons. Or in other words, 4,804 broadcasted games, 674,233 total plays, or 744,052 plays if you count kickoffs and extra points, 3,168,863 total offensive yards or 114,079,068 inches (since the NFL is often called a game of inches).

And while we celebrate the history, we’re also excited about the future of this season.  You can look forward to another hour of pre-kick off FANTASY ZONE. And we will reach another tremendous milestone - broadcasting our 5,000th game!

Live games on NFL SUNDAY TICKET** start Sunday, Sept. 9, 2018, at 1 p.m. ET.
