Sadly, Still No NFL Network on DIRECTV NOW… But There Is Hope




Fans of soccer watching match

A little over a week ago there was a lot of excitement about the possibility of the NFL Network joining DIRECTV NOW. This came from a screenshot with text from a DIRECTV NOW chat agent that said, “NFL Network will be launched with in this week.”

I want to take a moment to remind everyone that chat agents often seem willing to say anything and everything they think you want to hear. As best I can tell chat agents are graded on how quickly they answer your questions and get to the next customer.

Now is the NFL Network coming to DIRECT NOW?

Nothing official has been announced, but DIRECTV NOW did do some surveys over the summer to make you think it is at least thinking about adding it. So it is possible that the NFL Network could be added as soon as today or tomorrow but it could be as late as next year.

The NFL Network seems to be rather unwilling to work with many streaming services because currently only Sling TV and PlayStation Vue have the network.

Final Thoughts

This once again reinforces the wait until it’s real view. As cord cutting grows more and more cord cutting rumors will start. My suggestion: Take them all with a grain of salt and wait to see what happens before you run out and buy something based on a rumor.
