Just recently, Google announced that it had landed a deal with the National Football League to launch NFL Sunday Ticket on YouTube and YouTube TV starting in 2023. However, a price was never mentioned in the announcement.
A new estimate gives us an idea of what to expect.
“The price point has not been determined, but one TV person estimated it would be in the neighborhood of $300 for the season,” Peter King of NBC Sports reported Monday.
The package for DirecTV with extra features costs $149.99 per month, with a $79.99 monthly cost for the satellite company’s regular subscription. King added that YouTube TV could provide a “single-team option” for fans, providing an opportunity to see only one team’s out-of-market games while paying a cheaper cost.
When the switch to YouTube TV takes effect in 2023, customers will have the option to add Sunday Ticket to their existing $65 monthly plan or purchase it as a standalone service.
DirecTV had been the exclusive home of Sunday Ticket since 1994. The NFL will make $2 billion annually on the new seven-year contract.
The price that NFL Sunday Ticket costs on YouTube and YouTube TV remains to be officially confirmed, but if this estimate turns out to be true, it could be a win for everyone.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
