Will Directv NOW allow you to access the NFL Network using Directv NOW as your cable provider like you can now with your regular Directv login parameters??? I noticed where the NFL Network Channel is currently not included with Directv NOW.
I watch the NFL Network Channel because they carry some of the Thursday Night Football games.

They only offer logins for Disney owned, HBO and Cinemax. Don't think you will get the NFL network even if they offer it. Also NFL network games are blacked out if you Don't get live NBC or Cbs.. Twitter has the rights to some games you can watch it there free. The rest NBC sports has but our Dtv now credentials don't work there.

In the FAQ, they say "Not at this time" - take that as you will. They do indicate that you can subscribe individually, which I initially thought meant that there was an additional carve-out in the availability conditions specifically for DTVN customers, but that apparently isn't the case - if you qualify under their regular rules, you qualify (though I could be wrong on that - you may want to contact them to be sure).

Well I hate to see you go but if you are not happy with the product I do not blame you. Everyone has needs and wants. DTVN basically provides me with what I want. NFL ticket would not be a killer for me.

Believe it or not, there are a lot of consumers who have little or no interest in football, so for whom Sunday Ticket is totally unimportant. I'd guess that there are a lot of existing DTV customers in that group, and for them DTV would certainly not be nothing without Sunday Ticket. And I'm pretty sure no one actually held a gun to your head and forced you to sign a contract.
That said, apparently some are really interested and willing to pay a lot to get it, and are willing to sign up with DTV to get it, since it is an exclusive. So it is a (completely valid) set of business decisions by DTV to keep it exclusive and to charge what they charge. It is likely also part of their contract with the NFL that it be kept exclusive. (That might be a reason that it isn't offered to DTVN customers They are not really the same company from the point of view of carriage contracts - same reason that DTV has content that DTVN doesn't; they can't piggyback off the same contracts. The other reason, of course, is that they really don't want people to leave DTV for the lower cost - and lower profit - DTVN, so even if they have a choice, they keep it exclusive to their more profitable service.) And you can demand to get things the way you want them as much as you want, but as long as someone else actually owns the content, they get to make the rules - your choice is to follow their rules or not get the content.
