If you want to sign up for NFL Sunday Ticket without ponying up more Franklin, you’d better do it before Wednesday.
Sunday Ticket is now available via Google YouTube TV. The tech giant beat out rivals like Amazon and ESPN for the rights to become the exclusive distributor of the NFL’s out-of-market TV package.
The company has been offering some special pricing, but that may soon be going the way of the dodo. While YouTube TV subscribers are getting a Sunday Ticket deal (probably because they’re already paying $72.99). You can pay $249 for a year’s worth of Sunday tickets, at America today.
On Wednesday, that price will go up to $349.
That’s a steep price, but Google should recoup the reported $2 billion they’re paying each year for NFL Sunday Ticket rights.
Don’t have YouTube TV? Fear not (unless you prefer to pay less for things), because non-subscribers can still get NFL Sunday Ticket for $449.
That’s a steep price for NFL Sunday Ticket, but remember, that’s without paying $72.99 a month for YouTube TV Repeater.
NFL Sunday Ticket has been around since 1994 and is available to Direct TV subscribers for a good portion of that. It will be interesting to see how the service works out for streaming.
YouTube TV recently came under fire as users struggled to watch Game 1 of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals.
