Earlier Dead spin reporter Timothy Burke says on Twitter the stream started having issues at about 2pm ET and since then all streams have gone dark. DirecTV recognized the problem in a tweetnoting that it is “aware that customers will not be able to stream NFL Sunday Ticket through the app and will share more information when we restore programming.” The edge contacted DirecTV with a request for comment, and we’ll update this article if we hear anything.
“We are aware that customers are temporarily unable to stream NFL Sunday Ticket through the app and will share more when we restore programming.”

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 broadcast live football, including YouTube TV, Sling TV, and the NFL app, were also experiencing outages at the time. Thankfully, it doesn’t look like other services are experiencing any issues 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.
