Weekend fliers on JetBlue will be getting two tickets instead of one, starting Oct. 3.
That is when the airline will add NFL Sunday Ticket to its existing DirecTV lineup of 36 free channels.
DirecTV's NFL Sunday Ticket provides access to all Sunday afternoon games, as well as pre-game and post-game action.
Between Oct. 3 and Jan. 2, some of the carrier's 36 in-flight channels will be replaced by Sunday Ticket game feeds. JetBlue also happens to be the "official airline" of the New York Jets, as well as the Buffalo Bills, the combatants in one of the pro football league's 1 p.m. (ET) contests this Sunday.
