NFL Network Added to PlayStation TV Streaming Service in Time for First Game
The $40 RedZone package is also available.
With the release of Madden NFL 17 this week, football may be on your mind. The real-world season kicks off on September 8 and now, Sony has announced that the NFL Network is available on its PlayStation TV streaming service.
NFL Network is available through PlayStation Vue's Core and Elite packages. These start at $35 and $45 per month, respectively, but jump to $45 and $55 if you live in a city that has a "major" live local broadcast station. These include New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco, and Miami.
The NFL Network broadcasts Thursday Night Football games and also features programming around games such as interviews, analysis, and highlights. Subscribers will also have access to NFL Network content on NFL.com and through the NFL's apps at no extra cost.
Additionally, you can sign up for NFL RedZone, which is a channel that jumps from live game to live game to show the most exciting moments, like touchdowns. This $40 package (for all regular reason games for one year) was already available on PS4 through the NFL app. NFL RedZone is also available on Xbox One and Xbox 360.
ESPN has the rights to Monday Night Football. The network is included with all PlayStation Vue subscription packages. Games also air on networks such as CBS, NBC, and Fox, which can also be seen using PlayStation Vue, though some sports programming is subject to area blackouts.
