Getting a Sunday ticket without DirecTV (or a discount if you’re a college student) is explained in this article, along with alternative ways to stream football.
How to Get NFL Sunday Ticket Without DirecTV
The bad news: The NFL Sunday Ticket is exclusive to DirecTV, which is why you used to need a satellite dish and subscription to get it.
Streaming Sunday Ticket over the internet is possible now, but you’ll only be able to get it if you have DirecTV satellite service in your area.
Sorry cord cutters!
The good news: NFLST.TV lets you stream Sunday Ticket if you live in the following areas:
- An area where there’s no DirecTV satellite service, or
- An apartment building, condo, or other multi-unit building.
Follow these steps to find out if you can get Sunday Ticket without DirecTV and sign up if you are:
- You can check your eligibility by entering your address on DirecTV’s website.
- You’ll need a DirecTV satellite to watch NFL Sunday Ticket if you aren’t eligible.
- If you are eligible, you must choose which subscription you prefer.

How to Get Sunday Ticket U for Students?

Skip Sunday Ticket in Favor of a Live Streaming Service
Hulu + Live TV, for example, offers most Sunday NFL games via standard television channels via streaming services. Unfortunately, DirecTV is often much more expensive than a service like this.
