YouTube has announced its pricing tiers for the newly acquired NFL Sunday Ticket package. And, as expected, the service will cost a pretty penny.
The streaming giants have gotten the rights to Sunday Ticket following the expiration of the league’s deal with DirecTV, paying an arm and a leg to secure it. So it was never going to come cheap.
The pricing might be a bit confusing, but we’ve got a breakdown here.
Per the announcement, YouTube TV subscribers will pay $249 for the season-long package for out-of-market games but would only get it at that price if they sign up during the presale period (from today to June 6).
The addition of the RedZone channel would take the price to $289.
Persons who sign up after the presale will pay an extra $100 for the basic package ($349), which goes up to $389 with the RedZone channel.
RedZone is available through YouTube TV as a standalone for subscribers who buy the Sports Plus add-on for $10.99 monthly.
Those looking to subscribe to Sunday Ticket via YouTube’s Primetime Channels will be required to pay $349 for the basic package during the presale, $389 with RedZone included. The price goes up to $449 for the basic and $489 for the full package after the presale ends.
The YouTube TV deal seems like the better one here. However, it also comes with a monthly fee of $72.99, so it’s expensive either way.
The company did not announce a price for out-of-market games for a single team, which suggests the feature won’t be available.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
