Recently there has been a lot of talk about DIRECTV NOW and the NFL Network with tech support agents promising the NFL Network would be added to DIRECTV NOW, but it never happens. Now we have new evidence that DIRECTV NOW is not likely to add the NFL Network anytime soon.
Over the last few days, I have heard from multiple readers that DIRECTV NOW sent out a survey asking about new features on DIRECTV NOW. One of the questions asked if the subscriber would be interested in NFL Network being added. (Now this is not the first time they have done this. A little over a month ago they also sent out a survey that asked about adding the NFL Network.)
That leads us to believe that it is unlikely that there is any deal in place for the NFL Network. If there was a deal to add the NFL Network in place, AT&T would not be surveying DIRECTV NOW subscribers about if they should add it.
It is possible talks are happening now, and AT&T is wondering how much it should be willing to pay or maybe what package it should include the NFL Network in. It is also possible that the NFL Network and AT&T have had no talks to add its channel to DIRECTV NOW.
For now, if you want the NFL Network as a cord cutter without a long-term contract your only options are Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, and fuboTV. All of them also offer the NFL RedZone as an add-on option.
The great thing about cord cutting is the lack of any long-term contracts. If DIRECTV NOW adds the NFL Network in the future, you can always switch back to DIRECTV NOW.
