NFL Sunday Ticket on Firestick (Overview)
DirecTV offers its official NFL Sunday Ticket app for Fire TV devices. With the respective subscription, you can stream every out-of-market Sunday football game live on your TV, with or without a DirecTV connection.
On Firestick, the NFL Sunday Ticket app lets you watch up to four games at the same time, as well as switch between the different audio channels and closed captions. The live games start streaming as soon as you launch the app.
The stream plays back in PiP (Picture-in-Picture) mode even when you browse through different sections of the app so that you never miss out on the best moments. In addition, you get a detailed view of schedules, scores, and in-progress information for every game in a single place.
There are currently two package options: NFLST GO and NFLST MAX. The GO package includes all the out-of-market games that you can’t watch on local television. During the regular season, the games are aired every Sunday afternoon. For the GO package, you can either pay $73.49/month for four months or make a one-time payment of $293.94 for every season.
If you buy the NFL Sunday Ticket MAX package, then you will be able to stream the DirecTV Fantasy Zone live every Sunday afternoon and get an extensive view of real-time stats, video highlights, previews, expert analysis, player updates, and more.
You also get the DirecTV Red Zone channel for game replays, highlight, post-match analysis, and statistics. This package will cost you $99/month or $395.99/season.
