For the second week in a row to start the 2022 NFL season, DirecTV’s Sunday Ticket service experienced outages, frustrating fans across the U.S.
Viewers trying to watch the seven games of Sunday’s early slate of NFL action have reported issues with digital viewing as well as on the company’s app. Many have sent messages to the company’s verified Twitter accounts. So far, DirecTV has directed users to contact the @DIRECTVhelp account via direct message.
In one message, the DirecTV Help account said its “team of technicians is already aware of this issue and working to solve it as soon as possible.”
The company’s traditional satellite service was not affected by the outage.
The outage was eventually fixed, and a spokesperson said, “Today’s NFL Sunday Ticket games have returned for streaming. We will continue to monitor, apologize for the inconvenience and thank our customers for their patience.”
NFL fans were vocal about their displeasure with the service.
Since 1994, DirecTV has been the exclusive provider for Sunday Ticket, which allows viewers the chance to see all out-of-market NFL games. According to DirecTV’s website, the cost for Sunday Ticket starts at $293.94, while Sunday Ticket Max, which includes NFL Red Zone, costs $395.94.
