EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — The NFL’s “Sunday Ticket” package will continue to be available to restaurants, bars, hotels and other businesses that have DirecTV for Business.

DirecTV on Thursday reached a multi-year deal with EverPass Media to provide its business customers with a package of Sunday afternoon out-of-market games on CBS and Fox. The contract does not apply to DirecTV residential customers.

Mike Wittrock, director of sales and services for DirecTV, said in a statement that his company serves more than 300,000 commercial properties.

The NFL reached a seven-year deal with Google last December to distribute the package to residential customers after being on DirecTV since 1994.

NFL owners gave EverPass Media a deal to distribute “NFL Sunday Ticket” during league meetings in March. EverPass is funded by RedBird Capital Partners with the NFL. The league’s strategic investment arm 32 Equity also has an equity investment.

DirecTV for Business also has the same arrangement nationally with Amazon Prime Video for NFL “Thursday Night Football,” MLS for its Season Pass package and Apple TV+ for “Friday Night Baseball” to broadcast games on their satellite equipment.
