DIRECTV Puerto Rico will continue to be the exclusive provider of NFL Sunday Ticket to its residential satellite customers across Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. NFL Sunday Ticket is the NFL’s subscription package that includes out-of-market Sunday afternoon regular-season NFL games broadcast on FOX and CBS, and will be available in time for the first Sunday of NFL games on Sept. 10. DIRECTV for BUSINESS will also distribute NFL Sunday Ticket to bars, restaurants, hotel lounges, retail shops and other venues in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
DIRECTV Puerto Rico has offered NFL Sunday Ticket into the islands since 2008, and its residential customers will now continue to enjoy access to all the NFL out-of-market games via satellite. Local fans will also enjoy additional live in market NFL action featured on broadcast network affiliates that DIRECTV Puerto Rico offers into Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
“Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands are very unique in having avid fans for all the different teams across the NFL,” said Belkys Mata, VP Sales Operations DIRECTV Puerto Rico. “Retaining exclusivity to NFL Sunday Ticket in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands reaffirms our commitment to strengthening the live sports we offer to families and businesses, and putting customers first is always the motivation to how we go about our daily business.”
DIRECTV Puerto Rico licensed exclusive rights to distribute NFL Sunday Ticket to residential satellite customers in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands from EverPass, a media platform that distributes live sports and entertainment, funded by RedBird Capital Partners and 32 Equity, the strategic investment arm of the NFL.
