The NFL’s “Sunday Ticket” is about to jump to YouTube.
Google and the NFL are reportedly in advanced talks to bring the popular service to YouTube starting next season, according to the Wall Street Journal. An official announcement could come as soon as Wednesday.
DirecTV has held the rights for “Sunday Ticket” since it first launched in 1994. The service has become a critical part of the NFL season for fans across the country. It allows fans to watch nearly any game regardless of market and because of NFL RedZone.
The deal with DirecTV is up after this season. The league has been hunting for a new home for the service for some time. Other than Google, Apple was a favorite though talks between the NFL and Apple reportedly broke down last week.
