Previously, subscribers of DIRECTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket needed a “MAX” upgrade to stream every out of market game. As of today, that is changing. Announced by AT&T this morning, “Customers will no longer need to upgrade to NFL Sunday Ticket MAX when they subscribe to Sunday Ticket in its 22nd season.”
With this announcement, anyone who subscribes to DIRECTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket package will be able to stream every live out-of-market regular season game every Sunday afternoon. AT&T details that streaming of Sunday Ticket went up 35% last year, and this move should help increase those numbers even more so.
With these changes, it should be known that MAX is not going anywhere. Sunday Ticket MAX includes the regular package features, plus premium services, like the Red Zone channel and the Fantasy Zone channel. These services are available on TV and for mobile device streaming.
The NFL season kicks off on Thursday, September 8.
