After Google's $2 billion-a-year deal to make NFL Sunday Ticket a YouTube TV exclusive, Google has now announced exactly how much football addicts will be paying to get every out-of-market NFL game, every week. The short answer is to not expect any revolutionary pricing packages or offerings just because this is moving online.

 

Sunday Ticket used to be a major sports package on DirecTV, giving people access to around 13 NFL games per week. Between your Sunday Ticket subscription and a normal cable subscription, it's possible to see every NFL game, every week. The new home of the service, YouTube TV, isn't regular YouTube; it's more like cable TV channel bundles—but over the Internet. Instead of getting the usual pile of cable TV channels (CNN, ESPN, MTV, etc.) from Comcast, Spectrum, or whoever your local monopoly is, you can get it from YouTube instead, over the Internet, usually for the same price. Currently, YouTube TV costs $72.99 per month, just like a cable TV subscription.

 

Google has two sets of prices for Sunday Ticket—one for people currently paying the base $72.99 a month fee for YouTube TV and another price for non-subscribers. For subscribers already paying the hefty YouTube TV monthly fee, Sunday Ticket is $349 per season. This is morethan it cost on DirecTV, where the price was $300 per season plus the base rate for a monthly DirecTV subscription, which is around $65. If you don't want to pay for YouTube TV's cable channels, you can subscribe to Sunday Ticket through "YouTube Primetime Channels," where the cost is $100 more or a flat $449 fee for the entire season.

 

Google is offering an early bird plan. If you sign up before June 6, you'll get $100 off the first season. There is no longer a student discount. Google says you can sign up in the YouTube TV app, with the option beginning to roll out to some people today.

From WSJ:   Back in 2015, when a San Francisco pub called the Mucky Duck filed a complaint about how the National Football League handles its out-of-market broadcasts, it was viewed as littl

I think that the NFL definitely helps set the price and it's not just based on maximizing revenue from Sunday Ticket. There are many other considerations at play such as the NFL's business relationshi

Well you don’t even understand what you’re watching so good call!

They're gonna force me to claim residence overseas. I'm not paying that fee.

Even the Sunday Ticket isn't immune to runaway inflation...

I'll pay the 449.00

 

Chicken feed

 

Exactly.  I never understood all the upheaval when it was $199 and $299.

 

It will cost me less than $300 because I'm a YTV subscriber already and that's nothing.  But yeah, I'd pay $449 if I wasn't.  That's $25 per week for the season.  Certainly a lot cheaper than going to a bar or to the actual game.

 

It makes me laugh how so many who consider themselves die hard fans aren't willing to pay more than like $5 to see their team play LOL

Aren’t these annual threads of yours based entirely on not paying or at least getting heavily discounted Sunday Ticket?

 

Ive been paying it for years and never had a problem with doing so, but there are just so many alternatives these days to Sunday Ticket that I have no problem exploring cheaper options that aren’t tied to a YouTube account.

They're not hurting for money and I'm not interested in paying more than I need to. There are plenty of options beyond agreeing to the price hike. No good reason to pay.

 

It's really not a price hike.  The price for subscribers is actually lower than it was for DTV subscribers.

 

What's new is that non-subscribers can still now get the package a la carte without requiring them to be in a long term programming contract.  Now sure that's a little higher cost but that makes a lot of sense since these people aren't helping subsidize the cost to the provider by having a monthly subscription.

 

But hey, if you're a grown ass man who is too cheap to pay a reasonable price for a product you really like and instead pretend you're a college student or in a foreign country to save a small amount of money, perhaps you should have your testosterone level checked.

Yes, absolutely they were.  It was fun to get it for free or heavily discounted but I'd have paid full price in an instant if they hadn't been willing to incentivize me to remain a loyal customer.

 

Not to mention, the almost $200/month I paid for my subscription made it easy for them to throw me a $300 bone once a year...

 

My annual threads weren't about cheating the system, they were about making fun of posters like @oldschool who couldn't seem to get the same customer service treatment.  LOL
