NFL Sunday Ticket is down and NFL fans are not happy

As Week 2 of the 2022 NFL season got underway, football fans settled in for a long afternoon of watching the NFL.

Those trying to watch games through DirecTV Sunday Ticket, however, were left wanting more.

The satellite service’s premier football package Sunday Ticket struggles with server outages, leaving fans in the dark as the games wore on into the afternoon.

As you can imagine, fans were anything but happy.

The server struggles come as the Sunday Ticket package may be moving to a new home for the 2023 season. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell indicated this summer that the package would be moving to a streaming service for the next season.
