The imaginary stadium is modelled and rendered.Last week AT&T announced that they are dropping the NFL Network from DIRECTV NOW and U-verse TV. According to reports, this comes as AT&T and the NFL are in talks about the future of the NFL Sunday Ticket service.

NFL Sunday Ticket allows subscribers to watch out of market NFL games. It has for some time only be available if you are also a DIRECTV subscriber. Now the NFL is looking at taking an out in the contract that would allow them to take back rights from AT&T to sell NFL Sunday Ticket through other providers.

Now it is being reported that the NFL is in talks with both Amazon and Disney to offer NFL Sunday Ticket. Amazon has recently been offering NFL Thursday Night NFL games through Amazon Prime. Disney has ESPN+ a $5 a month subscription streaming service that they would like to expand.

Back in March 2019, the NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell opened up about the future of NFL Sunday Ticket. “We’re having great discussions with DirecTV and AT&T,” Goodell said. “We’ve had a 25-year partnership and we want to continue that partnership, but we also are looking to see how we can change the delivery.”

“We’re looking to make sure that we continue to deliver this package, which is a premium package of great content,” Goodell said. “We want it delivered on several different platforms.”

What exactly this means is unknown. According to reports, the NFL wants to split rights to NFL Sunday Ticket to allow them to sell a streaming version of the NFL Sunday Ticket. We do know that NFL Sunday Ticket will still be on DIRECTV this year. Any changes to NFL Sunday ticket will have to wait until the start of the 2020 season. For now, what we are seeing is that the NFL is serious about moving away from DIRECTV as the sole provider of NFL Sunday Ticket.
