The National Football League (NFL) announced today that their NFL Sunday Ticket package will be broadcast on YouTube beginning with the 2023 season.
NFL Sunday Ticket games will be distributed to users in the United States by YouTube TV and YouTube Primetime Channels, which are owned by Google.
“We’re excited to bring NFL Sunday Ticket to YouTube TV and YouTube Primetime Channels and usher in a new era of how fans across the United States access, watch and follow the NFL,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said. “For a number of years we have been focused on increased digital distribution of our games and this strategic partnership is yet another example of us looking towards the future and building the next generation of NFL fans.”
Beginning in 2023, the NFL Sunday Ticket package will be available as an add-on package on YouTube TV and standalone a-la-carte on YouTube Primetime Channels.
“YouTube has long been a home for football fans, whether they’re streaming live games, keeping up with their home team, or watching the best plays in highlights,” said Susan Wojcicki, CEO of YouTube. “Through this expanded partnership with the NFL, viewers will now also be able to experience the game they love in compelling and innovative ways through YouTube TV or YouTube Primetime Channels. We’re excited to continue our work with the NFL to make YouTube a great place for sports lovers everywhere.”
