DirecTV Now Adds NFL Network to Most Packages

Phillip Dampier August 2, 2018 Consumer News, DirecTV, Online Video 1 Comment

After raising rates last month for its cable TV streaming alternative, AT&T’s DirecTV Now today announced it was adding NFL Network to all packages except the budget-priced “Live a Little” tier.

Coming soon, customers will also have access to stream NFL Network through Watch NFL Network, available on NFL.com and the NFL app across connected TV and mobile devices.

NFL Network will provide extensive coverage of the NFL’s 2018 Preseason, airing the entire slate of 65 preseason games, highlighted by 15 live games. NFL Network’s live preseason schedule kicks off Thursday, August 9 with the New York Giants hosting the Cleveland Browns at 7:00 p.m. EDT. Also featured as part of NFL Network’s package of live preseason games are top picks Sam Darnold (Falcons-Jets, August 10 at 7:30 p.m. EDT) and Josh Allen (Bills-Browns, August 17 at 7:30 p.m. EDT), as well as eight playoff teams from 2017.

In addition to 13 Thursday Night Football games, NFL Network will televise a Week 8 International Series matchup from London (Philadelphia Eagles vs. Jacksonville Jaguars), a Week 15 Saturday doubleheader (Houston Texans vs. New York Jets and Cleveland Browns vs. Denver Broncos), and a Week 16 Saturday doubleheader with matchups to be determined.

Sports programming remains the most expensive component of TV packages. The addition of NFL Network will not raise the price of DirecTV Now at this time, but its cost will be a factor in future rate increases.

    Right or wrong, AT&T is jumping into TV with both feet and taking no half-measures. It will be interesting to see how it plays out.
