DirecTV says it could drop NFL Sunday Ticket after 2014
For those NFL fans that enjoy NFL Sunday Ticket from DirecTV, they could soon be looking for another place to get their football fix.
DirecTV’s current NFL Sunday Ticket deal expires in 2015. At the Deutsche Bank Media, Internet & Telecom Conference in Florida on Wednesday, DirecTV CFO Pat Doyle was asked about the future of “NFL Sunday Ticket.”
Doyle said he would consider striking a non-exclusive deal with the NFL or possibly even dropping the popular package, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
In 2009, the NFL signed a four-year, $4 billion extension with DirecTV, basically securing the “Sunday Ticket” would been seen only on DirecTV through the 2014 season.
