DIRECTV STREAM is a live TV streaming service that has Bally Sports, NBC Sports and harder-to-find regional sports networks (RSNs).

Sports fans can find the same TV channels as cable TV and satellite bundles with a few exceptions.

ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN3, Golf Channel, ACC Network (ACCN), Big Ten Network, CBS Sports Network, SEC Network, NBA TV, Longhorn Network, MLB Network, Tennis Channel, TNT, TBS, ESPNews and ESPN Deportes are some of the national sports networks on DIRECTV STREAM. 

What’s missing?  NFL Network and NFL RedZone are not on any DIRECTV STREAM plan.

The Choice package costs $99.99 per month. You can get a 5-day free trial of the service without any obligations. 

New subscribers can get $10 off for the first three months of the Choice package. You have the option to add free trials for HBO Max, Starz, Cinemax, Showtime and other premium channels with movies and original series.

The Choice package is the least expensive option for sports fans. 

But you can also find regional sports channels on the Ultimate and Premier channel packages as well. You can record any sporting event you want. Subscribers get unlimited Cloud DVR storage. 

DIRECTV STREAM (formerly AT&T TV) works on most major streaming devices, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV devices, Apple TV and smartphones and tablets. You can watch TV on an iPad or iPhone with current iOS. 

You just need an internet connection or data plan to start streaming live TV. 

You can use apps on supported Smart TVs running on Google TV and Android TV. Subscriptions run month to month and so you can cancel whenever you want.
