With just weeks to go before the regular NFL season kicks off, DirecTV/AT&T and the NFL are expanding their NFL Sunday Ticket subscription service by adding an over-the-top (OTT) service option.

American football fans can reap the benefits of the exclusive NFL Sunday Ticket subscription through the live streaming option at NFLSUNDAYTICKET.TV. Packages start at $49.99 per month for four months and are accessible via computers, tablets, smartphones or connected devices, like Xbox One/Xbox 360, Windows 10, Sony PS3/PS4, Roku and Chromecast.

The service isn't open to everyone though. Only those consumers living in an apartment, condominium or town home that cannot receive DirecTV service, and those unable to install a dish at their home due to an obstruction or other restriction, are eligible to sign up. Active students at any four-year university nationwide can also purchase the OTT, plan at the student price of $24.99 per month for four months.

"Millions of people in apartments and houses in the US who were unable to install DirecTV satellite dishes can now enjoy every out-of-market game, every Sunday afternoon on their favourite mobile and connected devices," said Alex Kaplan, SVP of marketing for DirecTV. "More NFL fans than ever before will be able to access NFLSundayTicket.TV service and follow their favourite teams and players."
