DirecTV ‘Sunday Ticket’ package could end after 2014

Posted · Add Comment

Maybe in the near future you will be able to watch any NFL game on any Sunday without having to subscribe to Sunday Ticket through DirecTV.

Pay Doyle, the CFO of DirecTV, said Wednesday that his company could drop the package after its current contract expires at the conclusion of the 2014 regular season or consider a non-exclusive deal with the NFL, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

That could open the door for more media outlets to show games for fans outside of their market. DirecTV signed a $4 billion, four-year extension with the NFL in 2009 to continue Sunday Ticket.

With the NFL finding more and more ways to increase revenue streams, it would not be surprising if the league is making much more money come 2015 no matter who is providing the service to fans across the country willing to cough up good money to see a full package of games.
