If you are an avid football fan, you might have heard of DirecTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket.
This service used to only be available for DirecTV subscribers, but now the network is opening it up to everyone with the help of AT&T. With the NFL Sunday Ticket, you can watch every football game that is out-of-market, as well as receive an extensive list of real-time stats, previews, highlights, and other special features for an added price. Whether you choose the NFLST GO or NFLST MAX subscription, you will need a way to watch the games every Sunday.
Today, we will show you exactly how to download the NFL Sunday Ticket app and how to connect your subscription in a few easy steps.
It is truly no wonder that SNL Sunday Ticket is in such high demand lately, as many football fans want to have access to out-of-market plays that cannot reach their screens otherwise. Whether you have a Firestick, a Fire TV Soundbar, a Fire TV Cube (first or second generation), a Fire TV Edition Smart TV, or a Fire TV Pendant (third generation), you also can download the app and enjoy the Sunday games with your family.
As of now, this subscription is only available in 29 US regions, so we recommend checking out if you are eligible by inserting your ZIP code on AT&T’s website first. If you have an NFL team in your home state, it is more than likely that the subscription is available where you live.
What does the NFL Sunday Ticket app have to offer?
Now that DirecTV is also offering this app for non-subscribers let’s check out what you get for the price. Even though it is not the cheapest streaming service on the market, the NFL does have an exclusive contract with the network. This means that there is no other alternative to watching out-of-market games besides NFL Sunday Ticket, so you are paying for an exclusive right.
That being said, if you love football as much as we do, you will probably find that what you get for the price is more than worth it. DirecTV, in collaboration with AT&T, offers two subscriptions: NFLST GO, priced at $73.49/month, and NFLST MAX costing $99.00/month. You can choose to pay for the entire season as well, the first one adding up to $293.94 and the former to $395.99.
The regular GO package includes every out-of-market game of the season which will not air on local TV. You will be able to stream them every Sunday afternoon. Even if there is more than one game going on at the same time, the multi-screen feature in the app lets you watch up to four games at once. The NFLST GO package gives you access to game schedules and scores as well.
When you opt for the upgraded package, NFLST MAX, DirecTV gives you access to their Fantasy Zone live and DirecTV Red Zone channels as well. You will be able to see video highlights, player updates, previews of the games, game replays, real-time stats on all the teams, as well as post-match analysis.
If you are a college student, you can enjoy the features of NFLST MAX at the lower price of $24.99/month or $99.96 for the entire season. This package is called NFLST U, and it can be accessed by providing a few details such as your name, the school you are enrolled in, and your date of birth. You can find out if you are eligible for this package right on the DirecTV website.
The app has an intuitive user interface that gives you easy access to a variety of features. We particularly enjoy the Picture-in-Picture functionality, where you can scroll through the app while still watching a game in a smaller frame. This way, you will not miss any touchdown but still get to see the progress in other games as well. You can also easily revert back to full-screen from the PiP view after checking out the stats you were looking for.

How to Watch NFL Sunday Ticket in Canada with the DAZN App
Even though DirecTV has the streaming rights for out-of-market games in the United States, they do not cover the Canadian region as well. The NFL did strike a deal with DAZN, however, which means that if you are Canadian, you can use their platform to be up to date with all the latest games.
NFL Sunday Ticket costs $49.75 per month through DAZN or the total price of $199 for the whole season. On top of that, you need to subscribe to the basic DAZN program as well, priced at around CA $20 per month. The streaming service does offer the first month free of charge, so you will not be paying as much at first.
Keep in mind that these prices can change depending on the region you are streaming from. The price might rise as well, in case you decide to add on NFL Red Zone, NFL Game Pass, and/or NFL Network to your package. You can learn more about the DAZN subscription on their official website.
Fortunately, the downloading and installing process is extremely similar to the US NFL Sunday Ticket app. The only thing that is different is that you will need to search for their app on the Amazon Appstore, simply called DAZN. Install this app and insert the log-in information from your provider.
NFL has partnered up with providers such as DirecTV and DAZN to bring you out-of-market games right on your streaming device. Whether you are a Firestick user or a Fire TV Cube owner, you can enjoy up to four games at the same time with the right app available on the Amazon Appstore.
With prices starting from $24.99/month, NFL Sunday Ticket is definitely an attractive streaming service to both American and Canadian folks. Check out if you are eligible for this subscription and follow our easy tutorial to get the NFL Sunday Ticket app on your Firestick in no time!
