Despite Steelers vs. Washington taking place on a Monday, it's not a national television broadcast. DirecTV has ensured that all of its subscribers will be able to watch the game, though.

The coverage map for Pittsburgh-WFT features mostly midwest and northeast cities, with much of the country unable to watch the game rescheduled from Sunday on their local Fox affiliate. But if you're in a grayed out area on the map below and subscribe to DirecTV, you're in luck: The game is available to all DirecTV subscribers as part of an NFL Sunday Ticket free preview. 

DirecTV confirmed to Sporting News that all of its subscribers can tune to Channel 712 to watch the game at 5 p.m. ET Monday, regardless of whether they normally subscribe to NFL Sunday Ticket or not. Below, you'll find more information about accessing the game as a DirecTV subscriber.

What channel is Steelers vs. Washington on?

  • DirecTV channel: 712

The early 700 channels on DirecTV are all part of the NFL Sunday Ticket package. But anyone who subscribes to DirecTV can tune into 712 to watch the Steelers play the Washington Football Team, even if they're not a Sunday Ticket subscriber.

That's due to a decision made by DirecTV and confirmed to Sporting News which is an attempt to keep its subscribers from being shut out from watching Monday's early evening game.
