DirecTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket The package glitched for the second week in a row, prompting fans who tried to browse through the app or online to miss the full game.
That comes too little, too late for those trying to watch seven early games. The outage does not affect customers viewing through regular satellite service.
A DirecTV spokesman said the company will continue to monitor the server issue and apologize to customers for the inconvenience.
This is the last season where DirecTV will be the exclusive supplier Sunday Ticket. Amazon and Apple were among the bidders for the off-market game bundle after commissioner Roger Goodell said over the summer that he expected a new carrier.
DirecTV renewed its contract in 2014 and pays $1.5 billion per season. The new package is expected to bring in at least $2.5 billion annually.
DirecTV is expected to continue operating for a package that can be sold to bars and restaurants.
