DirecTV said via social media marketing that customers attempting to stream the 1 p.m. EDT gameswere not able to through the app. Soon after 4 p.m. EDT, they said that theserver problems were fixedand that streaming could resume.
That came inadequate, too late for all those attempting to view the seven early games. The outages didn’t affect customers watching via normal satellite service.
A DirecTV spokesman said the business will continue steadily to monitor for server problems and apologized to customers for the inconvenience.
This is actually the final season that DirecTV would be the exclusive carrier of Sunday Ticket. Amazon and Apple are on the list of bidders for the package of out-of-market games after commissioner Roger Goodell said through the summer he expected a fresh carrier.
DirecTV extended its contract in 2014 and pays $1.5 billion per season. The brand new package is likely to fetch at the very least $2.5 billion each year.
DirecTV is likely to stay in the running for a package which can be sold to bars and restaurants.
