With the 2018-19 NFL season finally here millions of fans are looking for the best way to catch all the action. Whether you’re on a smartphone or tablet, or at home, the NFL Sunday Ticket remains one of the best options. However, not everyone has DirecTV, some cut the cord and ditched cable, and others don’t want to sign a 2-year contract.
In this guide we’ll show you how to get the NFL Sunday Ticket without DirecTV. While Thursday games will be on Fox this year, you can watch everything on the ticket.
DirecTV offers standalone packages that are finally affordable, which is your best route. Plus, students can get the Sunday Ticket for under $100. Even if you cut the cord you can still get the Sunday Ticket and here’s how.
Before we begin it’s worth mentioning this method isn’t for everyone. Nor will it work for everyone, so keep that in mind.
How to Get the NFL Sunday Ticket Without DirecTV
What we’re trying to do here is get the NFL Sunday Ticket without paying for DirecTV. Sadly this option isn’t 100% available to everyone, but it should be. Essentially DirecTV will let users buy the Sunday Ticket without a cable subscription only if they live in an area DirecTV isn’t offered. A great example is a home where installing a Satellite dish isn’t an option or someone on a college campus. That said, even if you can get a dish, this method could still work for you.
Let me say that again. If you can’t get DirecTV or don’t have a home that can use a satellite dish, you can still get the Sunday Ticket. I have access to DirecTV at my house, yet this standalone package is still available to me. One which I immediately took advantage of. They check eligibility with your address. We’ve also heard using a P.O. Box for your address during the online setup will show the location as unavailable, and let users select the stand-alone package. Or at least it did in 2017. Instantly giving you the Sunday ticket. Then sign in on a smartphone, laptop, or streaming device for all the action.
Basically, you sign up for a standalone package and enjoy the Ticket without DirecTV. Here were the options last year, and they’re offering something similar for the 2018-19 season. Plus, DirecTV has even more on the website.
Users will need to head to NFLSUNDAYTICKET.TV and put in their address to see if that location is eligible, and if so, choose the package that’s best for you. Pricing will remain the same (once you’re approved) but the full plans might vary a little for the 2018-19 season. Students can get the Sunday Ticket for even less by clicking here.
See, if you don’t have DirecTV you can still get the NFL Sunday Ticket starting at under $200. That’s a pretty great deal for NFL fans, not to mention there’s an option to watch it on a smartphone, or through an Xbox for even cheaper. You can get a cheap “To-Go” plan for mobile devices, a typical Sunday Ticket, or MAX. Max gives you the NFL RedZone and a bunch of extras if you’re a die-hard fan. Again, this is only for limited users who can’t get a dish installed.
Sunday Ticket To-Go delivers everything you need for mobile devices only, at $199, or in four payments. This is strictly for mobile devices. It also works with a computer (just use HDMI out and stream it to an HDTV) as well as all smartphones and tablets. Well, with iOS and Android devices.
The same Sunday Ticket TO GO pass mentioned above can be had for even less if you’re in college. It’s only $99 for college students. Perfect for those in a dorm room. They call this the Sunday Ticket TV U. Keep in mind that AT&T now owns DirecTV, so you can probably get the Ticket free if you use AT&T as your mobile carrier. Call and ask.
DirecTV also offers a slightly more expensive “Connected Pass” option that allows access to over 200 regular Sunday NFL games on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and even Roku devices. And finally, NFL Sunday Ticket Max. This is the best route, but also costs an arm and a leg. With MAX $395 covers anything and everything, not to mention any and all devices. If you don’t have DirecTV give one of the choices above a try, although personally GO is the best choice at just $199.
Stream the Sunday Ticket with DirecTV Now
These days people everywhere are cutting the cord and ditching traditional cable. That’s why Sling TV, YouTube TV, and even DirecTV Now are so popular. They’re live TV streaming over the internet, no contracts, and you pay by the month.
New for the 2018-19 NFL season DirecTV Now is offering the NFL Sunday Ticket. DirecTV Now is the company’s streaming service that starts at $40 a month. If you have the $55 “live a little” plan and live in a supported region you can enjoy endless NFL Football games.
Sadly AT&T and DirecTV Now don’t offer this everywhere, at least not yet. It’s only available in select regions like Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Antonio, Boston, Philly, Louisville, KY and Hartford, Conn. So, you’ll have to be on the $55 Live a Little Plan and live in one of those areas. But hey, it’s another option for those interested.

What About Pre-Season & Playoffs?
It’s worth noting that these standalone packages do have a few disadvantages. For one, you can’t watch the pre-season, or more importantly, the playoffs, with the Sunday Ticket. It’s only for the regular season sadly. Then, you can only stream one game at a time, on one device at a time. This means no sharing the GO plan with friends and using the same login. I tried. The regular Sunday Ticket Max lets you stream multiple games, but these “to go” plans don’t.
Data charges also apply if users stream from a mobile device, which will eat up a 3GB data plan after one NFL game. Meaning you’ll need a WiFi connection or a truly unlimited data plan.
All said and done, give the link above a try and see if you’re eligible to get the NFL Sunday Ticket without DirecTV. Most likely your house is able to use a Dish, so this won’t work for everyone. Then again, it can’t hurt to try. Otherwise, get Sling or DirecTV Now. Then, enjoy some hard-hitting football all season long.
Finally, there are a lot of deals and free Sunday Ticket options for new subscribers, and with AT&T being the owner of DirecTV they have some great wireless and TV bundles. Last but not least, Sling TV is just $25 a month and has NFL Network, Fox, ESPN and NFL Redzone. It isn’t the ticket, but it is close enough.
