As tension grows among football fans over some NFL players kneeling during the national anthem, customers are reporting on social media that DirecTV is allowing customers to get a refund on the NFL Sunday Ticket package.
The Wall Street Journal also confirmed that DirecTV is offering some refunds.
NFL Sunday Ticket is a DirecTV service that allows customers to watch NFL games that are not available through local or national stations.
The DirecTV Sunday Ticket package goes for up to $281 a year on the satellite television carrier. Once the season begins, DirecTV policy does not allow for refunds.
But after a contentious weekend involving President Donald Trump sparring with some NFL players, a number of fans have said on social media that they were granted a refund after complaining.
DIRECTV is letting us cancel NFL pkg. had to threaten to go with cable. Took half hour of arguing with them. They are getting lots of calls.
