In 2021, NFL Sunday Ticket is $293.94 and NFL Sunday Ticket is $395.94. The major difference between the two is NFL Sunday Ticket Max includes NFL RedZone and NFL Fantasy Zone. Both plans include access to NFL Sunday Ticket Online, which allows you to stream the service from anywhere on your mobile device or streaming player.
But like past years, you once again, you will need to live in a dorm or apartment without access to the satellite version of NFL Sunday Ticket. If you are a student or recent graduate, you can get NFL Sunday Ticket Online for just $99.99– otherwise it is the normal $300-400 for the season.
There has been a lot of speculation about what's next for NFL Sunday Ticket. This is the final season of exclusivity for DirecTV and they are not expected to renew the deal, at least for the streaming portion. Currently the NFL earns $1.5 billion annually by DirecTV for the exclusive rights to NFL Sunday Ticket, through this season.
