Long ago, DirecTV offered NFL Sunday Ticket as the go-to service for football fans looking to watch out-of-market games. But now that Google-owned YouTube TV has acquired the rights, NFL Sunday Ticket will become available as a standalone offering on Primetime Channels – as well as being more expensive like premium streaming services such as Netflix or Hulu.
YouTube TV generated considerable speculation when they first announced their plan to purchase NFL Sunday Ticket for 2023 season. Many were worried it wouldn’t offer as many options for team packages or single game purchases like DirecTV did, among other considerations.
That concern proved accurate on Tuesday when YouTube TV announced it will offer NFL Sunday Ticket as an add-on service to subscribers of its subscription services, and as Primetime Channels for anyone in the country without pay TV subscription starting next month. YouTube TV subscribers will pay $349 per season while those not subscribing will have to shell out $489. During a presale period which runs through June 6, costs will vary accordingly: subscribers paying only $349 will get access while nonsubscribers may incur costs up to $489 based on availability versus cost depending on availability – subscribers will pay only $349 while nonsubscribers must shell out $489 respectively for access.
Active duty military members and first responders may receive a discount using code TEAMHUDDLE2022 which can be found on the company website, however the service will still be more costly than competitors such as Hulu or Disney+ which offer sports streaming content.
