How to Watch the NFL Sunday Ticket on Roku

The new NFL season is underway. You may have thought you had all of the coverage you needed through local TV networks and streaming options. However, now that the storylines of the new season are becoming more intriguing, you’ve realized you need more options. To see if the Detroit Lions are legit, if this is the year Dallas finally lives up to its expectations, and if Justin Jefferson can griddy into the record books, you need the NFL Sunday Ticket.

This package of full access to the NFL’s Sunday games lets you watch any team from any device. It’s ideal for diehard football fans, and those who are loyal to a particular team that isn’t in their market.

The NFL Sunday Ticket is an added expense no matter what streaming package you have. However, it can be worth the investment, as you can access it from many devices, including Roku. Read on to get tips on how to watch the full coverage of this week’s game on Roku!

What Is the NFL Sunday Ticket?

The NFL Sunday Ticket is ideal for hardcore football fans and fans who relocated but still want to watch their favorite team each week. 

If you’re a Bills fan but you just moved to California, it can be difficult to watch every game on your local TV stations. The Sunday Ticket provides a solution. It gives you access to every out-of-market Sunday game, as long as it isn’t shown on a main network TV station in your local area. If it’s on a local channel, then it will be blacked out on the app.

This package was previously exclusive to DirectTV, but it moved to YouTube TV this season. The NFL Sunday Ticket is available as an add-on package for YouTube TV subscribers, as well as a stand-alone for those who don’t use YouTube TV. 

How to Sign Up for the Sunday Ticket

YouTube TV has several packages available for NFL fans to get access to the Sunday Ticket, and the add-on of the NFL RedZone channel.

Powered by the NFL Network, the NFL RedZone channel gives fans whip-around coverage of every Sunday afternoon NFL game. Through seven hours of live football coverage hosted by Scott Hanson, the coverage focuses on big events. It shows every touchdown from every game. It also shows big plays, becoming a helpful tool for Fantasy Football owners trying to track their roster. 

YouTube TV subscribers have options to add both the NFL Sunday Ticket and the RedZone channel to their existing accounts. They can add just the NFL Sunday Ticket for $349 for the season, or add the Sunday Ticket and the NFL RedZone channel for $389.

For those who want just the NFL package, there are options to get just the NFL Sunday Ticket or get the Sunday Ticket with access to the NFL RedZone channel.

The NFL Sunday Ticket package, priced at $449 for the season, includes:

  • All of Sunday’s out-of-market games
  • Ability to watch on unlimited TVs at your house
  • Access to the games on multiple devices, like your phone

The NFL Sunday Ticket package, plus the Red Zone Channel package, for $489 for the seasons, includes everything in the NFL Sunday Ticket package, in addition to whip-around coverage on the NFL RedZone channel. 

Can You Stream the NFL Sunday Ticket on Roku?

The NFL Sunday Ticket can easily be streamed on Roku for package subscribers. You will first need to sign up for the season-long subscription through YouTube TV. Then you can download the app, log into your account, and access the package just like any other app on Roku. With the NFL Sunday Ticket now exclusively available on a streaming service, adding it to Roku is easier than ever.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Watching the NFL Sunday Ticket on Roku

It’s a simple process to access the NFL Sunday Ticket through your Roku streaming player, allowing you to get the game on your TV or other devices in time for kickoff.

Step 1: Purchase the NFL Sunday Ticket Package on YouTube TV

The first step is to purchase the package via YouTube TV. If you are not already a YouTube TV subscriber, you can make the purchase on the YouTube website. If you already have an account, you can add the package through your profile. Click on the Membership link and add NFL Sunday Ticket to your account. You will then be charged using the payment method on file. 

Step 2: Go to the Roku Channel Store and Add YouTube TV

After completing the purchase, go to Roku and add YouTube or YouTube TV from the Channel Store. To do this, select Streaming Channels from the Roku home page. Select Search Channels, and look for YouTube or YouTube TV. Once it appears, click Add Channel.

Step 3: Log In to the YouTube TV App

Once the app is added, open it and log in using your YouTube account information. You can log in through your TV remote or a code activation process used on another device, typically your phone.

Step 4: Tour the App Before Game Day

After you complete the login process, you are ready for game day. Before Sunday, it’s a good idea to spend some time playing around with the app and seeing how the channels are set up, what games will be shown at what time, and what time NFL RedZone channel coverage begins. This will ensure you will be streaming the game in time for kickoff!

On Sunday, if you’re trying to watch a game and it’s not available, don’t panic. Check your live TV listings. If the game is shown on your local Fox or CBS network, then it will be blacked out on the NFL Sunday Ticket and you’ll need to watch it on the local network.

How to Watch the Sunday Ticket on Your Phone

Because the Sunday Ticket is available exclusively from YouTube TV, it’s easy to watch it on your TV via Roku, or on your phone through the Roku or YouTube TV apps. To view NFL games, you will need to add either your Roku app or the YouTube TV app to your phone or other mobile devices. After it is added to your phone, you can then log in and access the programming. With this convenient option, you can ensure you’ll never miss a play from your favorite NFL team throughout the 2023-2024 season.
