That appears to have now changed. Earlier today, DirecTV Stream updated the channel guide to include Channel 212. This channel is not only for NFL Network, but it is also now confirming the channel will go live on Monday, July 17.
As a reminder, the new multi-year deal renewed an existing agreement to carry NFL Network on DirecTV via satellite, and added distribution of NFL Network through DirecTV Stream and U-verse.
The deal also made it possible for DirecTV to offer NFL RedZone across all of its platforms as well, a first for DirecTV.
To actually watch NFL Network via DirecTV Stream, subscribers will need to be subscribed to a minimum of the Choice package. Priced at $99.99 per month, Choice unlocks access to more than 105 channels including Regional Sports Networks.
If signed up to Entertainment, DirecTV Stream’s cheapest plan overall, it is still possible to get access to NFL Network by subscribing to the new Sports Pack add-on.
Sports Pack costs an additional $14.99 per month and unlocks access to more than 20 additional sports channels, including both NFL Network and NFL RedZone.
With Entertainment priced at $74.99 per month, the total cost of Entertainment with Sports Pack comes out to around $90 per month, making the bundle $10 cheaper than Choice, albeit without access to any RSNs.
