Expect some big changes to “NFL Sunday Ticket” after this season — but also new options to access the service.
The out-of-market games package could reportedly cost $300 per season when Google’s YouTube TV takes over. “Sunday Ticket” plans from DirecTV range from $79.99 to $149.99 per month.
Fans will be able to add “Sunday Ticket” to YouTube TV, which costs $64.99 per month, or purchase it as a standalone service.
There may be a cheaper option that would allow fans to watch out-of-market games for one team.
The NFL’s deals with CBS and Fox reportedly include provisions that mandate that the subscription price for “Sunday Ticket” not fall below a certain level.
YouTube won the rights to “NFL Sunday Ticket” in a seven-year deal for a reported annual value between $2 billion and $2.5 billion. DirecTV pays $1.5 billion annually for “Sunday Ticket” in its current deal.
