You don’t need a DirecTV cable package to watch NFL Sunday Ticket. In fact, you can now stream NFL Sunday Ticket on Amazon Prime. It’s a little complicated, but it definitely works, and we’re going to walk you through the process.
Before we get started, there’s one thing we need to clarify: You can’t buy NFL Sunday Ticket on Amazon Prime. For that, you’ll still have to go through the online portal for DirecTV. But once you have credentials, you can download the free NFL Sunday Ticket channel on Amazon Prime and watch every out-of-market Sunday afternoon football game for the 2019 NFL season. (The same holds true for streaming NFL RedZone on Amazon Prime.)
Why bother? Well, if you watch movies on Amazon Prime, or have added other channels like HBO or Showtime, it makes sense to streamline your streaming. That way you’re not fumbling through different apps and consoles when it’s time to watch your favorite team.
Here’s everything you need to know to watch NFL Sunday Ticket on Amazon Prime.
There are three different NFL Sunday Ticket packages available online. You’ll need one of these before you watch NFL Sunday Ticket on Amazon Prime
Cost: $73.99 per month for four months or a single payment of $293.96
This is the online version of the DirecTV package, and it includes all of the features you’ve come to love—most notably the ability to watch up to eight games at once. Regional blackouts will still apply (consider picking up an HD antenna for those). With the season starting this week, this is the time to decide if you’d rather budget in monthly payments or just do the single payment now.
2) NFLST.TV Max
Cost: $99 per month for four months or a single payment of $395.99
The Max bundle adds NFL RedZone, which likely needs no introduction. NFL RedZone jumps from one live highlight reel from the next and zeros in on drives once a team reaches the red zone. If you play fantasy football, it’s essential, but there are plenty of other ways to stream NFL RedZone worth considering.
3) NFLSundayTicket.TV U
Cost: $24.99 per month or four months for $99.96
The student version of NFL Sunday Ticket is one of the best deals in streaming, knocking off $50 per month and nearly $200 total. To qualify, you’ll need to enter your name, birthday, and the university you’re currently enrolled in. If that doesn’t work, you can also manually upload documents to verify your enrollment, such as a tuition receipt or class schedule. (You can find more details here.) Suffice to say, it’s worthwhile to find a way to make this work.
