The Wall Street Journal reports DirecTV representatives have offered different answers when contacted, but multiple customers have said they've received at least some refunds when citing the anthem protests as their reason for canceling the NFL Sunday Ticket service. Although, a spokesman for AT&T - which owns DirecTV - would neither confirm or deny, per Rovell.
The actions of the players angered many and apparently led to some calling DirecTV and cancelling their subscriptions to the popular Sunday Ticket package.
The $280 package is usually something fans can't cancel once the season begins.
"I honestly didn't think I'd get a refund", subscriber Marc Hoffman said.

South Korea's government said it was the first direct address to the world by any North Korean leader. According to its website, the first quake - with a 2.6 magnitude occurred at 12:43 a.m.
The policy here isn't clear: The Wall Street Journal reported that the representatives they talked to had various interpretations of how the refunds actually work.
Once the season starts, fans usually can not cancel their subscriptions, but AT&T, which owns DirecTV, made a decision to change the policy due to the sensitivity of the issue.

The protests during the National Anthem have targeted the treatment of racial minorities, particularly police-involved shootings of African-Americans, and started with former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick past year.
President Donald Trump fanned the flames of the debate during a speech at a rally in Alabama supporting Luther Strange's primary campaign. On Monday night, the Dallas Cowboys chose to kneel in unison before the anthem.
