Here’s how to watch NFL Sunday Ticket without DirecTV.

NFL Sunday Ticket streaming: How to watch without DirecTV

NFLSundayTicket.TV cost: $73.99 per month for four months, or one single payment of $293.94

There are two—and only two—ways of acquiring NFL Sunday Ticket. There’s NFLSundayTicket.TV, which costs $73.99 per month for four months. It’s everything you love NFL Sunday Ticket but online-only. You can stream from pretty much any device that connects to the internet (a full list is featured below). 

You can also upgrade to the NFLST.TV Max bundle for a total of $99 per month for four months or one single payment of $395.94. That essentially means you’re paying $25 per month for NFL RedZone, which is a pretty good deal. You can also add on NFL Game Pass, which allows you to watch replays of every game after they air, for $50 for the full season.

NFLSundayTicket.TV U cost: $24.99 per month or four months for $99.96

If you’re a college student, you’re in luck: NFL Sunday Ticket streaming comes at a significantly discounted price in the form of NFLSundayTicket.TV U. If you’re not a college student, well, maybe it’s time to enroll in some night classes or hit up a relative who owes you a favor.

You get all of the same benefits as a traditional NFL Sunday Ticket package—out-of-market live games, Player Tracker stats, and Short Cuts—but at a fraction of the price. One-third to be exact.

In my experiment, using the personal information of a generous intern, I was not able to upgrade to the Max package. That means you’ll need a different solution for streaming NFL RedZone. You can, however, add NFL Game Pass for $50 (more on that in a minute).

To get NFLSundayTicket.TV U, all you need to do is enter your school name, your full name, and your birthday. If that doesn’t work, you can also upload a document that proves your current enrollment, which means it’s time to dig up your son or daughter’s last tuition receipt or current transcript. NFL Sunday Ticket provides the following examples of acceptable documentation:

  • Current semester class schedule (must be dated for the current semester)
  • Official school letter (must be dated for the current semester)
  • A current term registration receipt
  • Your current term transcript
  • Current term tuition receipt
  • Any documentation issued by the educational institution that proves enrollment and includes your name, the institution’s name and date issued/current term date will be reviewed and considered.

What is NFL Game Pass?

NFL Game Pass is a standalone streaming service that allows you to watch replays of every NFL game, even the ones that were originally subject to local blackouts. Even better: You can watch on-demand replays of every NFL game dating back to 2009—and all of it is HD quality. You can also listen to live radio calls of every NFL game (the home or away version), and there are cool features that let you watch from different angles or condense the games to just highlights.

It typically costs $99.99 for the full season, but you can get it for just $50 if added to either of the NFL Sunday Ticket packages.

There are a few finer points that you should know before signing up. Games are available to stream shortly after their conclusion unless you’re on your free trial or it’s on NFL Network, in which case you’ll need to wait 72 hours. Likewise, broadcast versions of Sunday morning and afternoon games are available by 8pm ET that evening. Thankfully, Sunday night, Monday night, Thursday night and Saturday NFL games go live on NFL Game Pass shortly after their conclusion.

NFL Sunday Ticket streaming devices

One incredibly important thing to know about NFLSundayTicket.TV: You can only stream from one device at a time. That means if you start streaming NFL Sunday Ticket on your laptop but then you want to move to your living room and use Roku or your Amazon Fire Stick, you’ll need to sign out on your laptop first for it to work.

How to watch NFL Sunday Ticket on Amazon Prime

There’s another way to watch NFL Sunday Ticket without DirecTV: Amazon Prime. While you can’t pay for the package using Amazon Prime, you can at least watch all of the games on the service. To start, first download the NFL Sunday Ticket channel on Amazon Prime. It’s free. From there, you’ll just need to sign in with your subscription credentials. Is this the best option for streaming NFL Sunday Ticket? Probably not. The channel just launched earlier this month, so it’s likely less seamless as it is on Roku or Xbox One, for example, but it’s nice to be able to do all of your streaming from one place, especially since you can watch Thursday Night Football on Amazon Prime. You can also use this method to watch NFL RedZone on Amazon Prime, either by upgrading to the NFLST.TV Max bundle or through another channel that supports NFL RedZone streaming.

Need recommendations for what else to watch? We’ve got you covered. Here are the best movies on Amazon Prime, the best comedies on Amazon Prime when you need a laugh, sad movies to make you cry, kids movies for the whole family, the best thrillers to get your heart racing, and the classic movies on Amazon Prime everyone should see.
