In an incredibly exciting development for yours truly, who has not lived in the Seattle Seahawks market in 14 years, and countless others living all across the United States other than the Pacific Northwest, single-team NFL Sunday Ticket could be on the way.
New Sunday Ticket package could actually include the ability to buy just one team's out-of-market games -- a development that is only about 27 years too late. https://t.co/jV8O69SMeF— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) September 24, 2021
According to Daniel Kaplan of The Athletic, the NFL is favoring Apple to be the new provider of their Sunday Ticket package. The main reason to be excited for this is that the Apple Sunday Ticket package could allow fans to buy just one team’s out-of-market games as well as single games.
Currently, DirecTV’s NFL Sunday ticket operates in one way: A purchase of the ability to watch every single out-of-market NFL game all regular season. For the vast majority of football fans and especially ones who have access to Red Zone, this is just not worth it.
However, this change to the reported Apple Sunday Ticket would be a huge victory for the out-of-market fans who have cried for this for years.
