As some football fans are expressing anger over NFL players kneeling during the national anthem, DirecTV is reportedly allowing customers to get a refund on its NFL Sunday Ticket package.

The Wall Street Journal first reported 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.

Once the season starts, fans usually cannot cancel their subscriptions, but AT&T, which owns DirecTV, decided to change the policy due to the sensitivity of the issue. The price of the package, which allows fans to get out-of-market games, is about $280.
