DirecTV fumbles NFL Sunday Ticket… again

DirecTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket stream has gone down for the second week in a row. Football fans across Twitter are complaining that they’re unable to log in or receive an error message when trying to load the stream.

Former Deadspin reporter Timothy Burke says on Twitter the stream started having issues at about 2PM ET, and since then, all the streams have gone dark. DirecTV acknowledged the issue in a tweet, noting that it’s “aware customers are unable to stream NFL Sunday Ticket through the app, and will share more information when we restore programming.” The Verge reached out to DirecTV with a request for comment, and we’ll update this article if we hear back.

Sunday Ticket users experienced similar issues last week when it went down for several hours. It also didn’t help that a number of other services that air live football, including YouTube TV, Sling TV, and the NFL app, also suffered outages at the time. Thankfully, it doesn’t look like any other services are experiencing problems this week.

After this football season, NFL Sunday Ticket will have a new home. DirecTV’s rights to Sunday Ticket expire this year, with Google and Apple reportedly in the running to secure them.
