    Looks like they may be a thing of the past. Nothing on the ST channels, nothing in the on demand area, and it's not mentioned on the website anymore that I saw.

    I'm seeing it in the Sunday Ticket/Max comparison chart on their website (Short Cuts - See whole games in 30 minutes.). Like you I'm not seeing it in the Guide. Time will tell.

    I was wondering about this as well. Can't find it anywhere on the receiver through channels, search, or On Demand. With the online streaming being added to the base package this year, if they pulled Shortcuts that only leaves the Redzone and Fantasy channels in the Max package. Hardly worth the extra charge IMO.

    It is still listed and part if their promo package for ST.

    Now we just have to get it on a channel.

    This was posted on another site:

    It looks like short cuts on Sunday Ticket max will be on the app only this year and not on 704 and 705.

    This is very disappointing! As of 8/24/16, ATT posted on the official dtv forum that they would be available on 705 and 706: https://forums.att.com/t5/TV-Apps/NFL-SUNDAY-TICKETS-Shortcuts/m-p/4900732#M2589 - I also attached an image of the post in case the thread gets deleted off of their forum. I went on a chat with someone from DTV support earlier today and they said as of now, only available on the app, but that they are trying to get it for TV too, but I think that was just to get me off of the chat.

    They are available on the app and work within the PlayStation app as well. Can anyone confirm if they are available without a Max subscription?

    DIRECTV website says on a Q&A page that we can record Short Cuts to a DVR.

    I certainly hope they get it working like it has in the past.

    Any idea how this can be done? I can't find the Short Cuts in the programming to record them to a DVR.

    And now they removed the reference to 705 and 706 from that page I linked to above... Not looking good! :(

    I just went to your link. It still mentions the channels at the bottom.

    They just haven't scrubbed that particular page yet. They're quickly scrubbing every reference to the channels since they know they got caught false advertising AGAIN. Lucky, I got screenshots earlier this morning of several pages clearly referencing channels 705 and 706 after they didn't debut at Midnight as usual.

    I'd settle for watching them via a website versus my mobile device but can't find them on the Directv website anywhere.

    Not shooting Peds. Short Cuts is my favorite non-Sunday feature of ST. To change it like this just sucks.

    Just logged on DIRECTV's site. Selected Explore DIRECTV-Packages-NFL Sunday Ticket. Sunday Ticket/Max comparision chart still shows "Short Cuts: see whole games in 30 minutes" in Max Colume.

    And with the free trial the first week, everyone should be able to get the shortcuts.

    Last year there was also an on-demand channel with highlights. Looks like that's gone as well.
