NFL on Directv Stream

Why doesn't Directv Stream carry NFL channels?  The service is very expensive and the number 1 sport in the USA is not carried on this service. When can we expect to see (at minimum) the NFL channel and the NFL Network channel?  Also, Directv offers the NFL Sunday Ticket package. Why doesn't Directv Stream?

They use to have the channel a few years ago. Also, DirecTV is not DirecTv Stream. Different services. Want thechannel the look at another streaming service.

If you have something of value to share to the original poster (OP) then do it else move on. Trolling is really not appreciated.

@geoNFLfan 

The NFL Sunday Ticket has an exclusive agreement with DirecTV (the regular satellite service).

There has been ripples of negotiations for some streaming-only providers to also start carrying it, though I have not heard of DIRECTV STREAM being one of them. If it goes through (for any streaming provider), it will not be expected until the 2023 season at earliest.

As for the NFL Network, they just don't currently have an agreement. As for the specific why, that is unknown. We customers aren't at the negotiating table for all the ins and outs (not just costs). All we know is if they currently have the channel or not.

I am hoping that they have the NFL network and red zone this fall or I am strongly considering switching to YouTube TV

They had it years ago but dropped it. Assuming for cost reasons. If they would add it, I hope it will be as an add-on else I see a serious price in subscription costs.

Just change services for a few months and then come back. If they continue to add all these "wants" from every one (even as a add-on), we will be back to cable subscription prices.

@williamssamsonss That is correct for DirecTV satellite, but the internet streaming service DirecTV Stream does not offer the NFL network.
