DirecTV raises NFL Sunday Ticket price 2.4% to $257.94

With the DirecTV's (NYSE: T) yearly licensing fee to the NFL rising slightly from around $1.4 billion every year following last year's renewal of the deal, the satellite TV operator is passing the hurt right along to its customers.

According to TV Predictions, DirecTV will raise the full-season base price of NFL Sunday Ticket package to $257.94 for the 2016 campaign, up 2.4 percent from this season. 

Sunday Ticket subscribers will be paying more for less games, with the NFL planning to live-stream three regular season contests from London next season.
