DIRECTV NFL SUNDAY TICKET Commences 26th Season with New Ads

DIRECTV continues to enhance its position as an leader in sports with its exclusive NFL SUNDAY TICKET package and addition of the NFL’s 2018 MVP Patrick Mahomes II to its advertising campaign.

“It’s a historic year for the NFL – celebrating its 100th season – and going into our 26th season of working with the organization, we’re thrilled to have three of the game’s best quarterbacks on board for this year’s NFL SUNDAY TICKET campaign,” said Tim Gibson, VP of Video and Application Marketing, AT&T.

Kansas City Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes II, Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback Dak Prescott and Indianapolis Colts’ quarterback Andrew Luck will appear in the ad campaign for the NFL SUNDAY TICKET package. The ads highlight NFL SUNDAY TICKET as the only way to watch every out-of-market game every Sunday afternoon, no matter where you live1. The spots debuted in July and are running on digital and linear platforms. The partnership with Prescott and Luck continues from past seasons, and DIRECTV added Mahomes starting this season.

“I’m grateful for the opportunity to work alongside some of the game’s top talent on this DIRECTV campaign,” said Kansas City Chiefs’ Quarterback Patrick Mahomes II. “I’m a Texan and that means my games are ‘out-of-market’ for a lot of my family and friends, but with DIRECTV NFL SUNDAY TICKET they can watch every Sunday game all season long.”

Since 1994, NFL SUNDAY TICKET has been the ultimate tool for any NFL fan and still the only place to watch every minute of every out-of-market game, every Sunday1. For fans who can’t access DIRECTV satellite service because of where they live or for students enrolled in U.S.-based universities, there are NFLSUNDAYTICKET.TV and NFLSUNDAYTICKET.TV U subscriptions – bringing the exclusive football experience directly to them.
