YouTube TV is a good live TV streaming service, and especially for sports fans. When it comes to NFL, one of the benefits of YouTube TV is that the base plan includes access to NFL Network at no additional cost.
For those that want to watch every out-of-market Sunday game with NFL RedZone, they will need to pay extra for either the Sports Plus or NFL Sunday Ticket + NFL RedZone add-ons.
NFL RedZone with Sports Plus
While NFL RedZone is not included in the base plan, it can be added to an existing YouTube TV live TV plan through the Sports Plus add-on.
Sports Plus costs an additional $10.99 a month and unlocks access to the following sports channels:
- beIN SPORTS / beIN SPORTS XTRA
- Billiard TV
- FOX Soccer Plus
- MAVTV Motorsports Network
- NFL RedZone
- Tennis Channel
- FanDuel TV
- Fight Network
- Impact Wrestling
As NFL RedZone is available through an add-on, consumers will first need to subscribe to the service’s base live TV plan.
With the base plan priced at $72.99 a month, the total for the base plan and Sports Plus (including NFL RedZone) comes to a minimum of $83.98 a month.
NFL RedZone with NFL Sunday Ticket
In addition to Sports Plus, it is also possible to bundle NFL RedZone with NFL Sunday Ticket.
YouTube and YouTube TV are now the streaming homes of Sunday Ticket. For those already considering signing up to Sunday Ticket through YouTube TV (or even YouTube), this is likely to be the cheapest way to subscribe to NFL RedZone as well.
Basically, NFL RedZone costs an additional $40 a season on top of the cost of NFL Sunday Ticket. When signing up through YouTube TV, and excluding any limited-time deals, the combined price of Sunday Ticket and NFL RedZone comes to $389 a year. This is on top of the cost of the base plan.
YouTube TV also offers the option to pay for NFL Sunday Ticket on a monthly basis, and this also includes the NFL RedZone bundle.
The monthly payment option splits the full season cost into four monthly payments, bringing the total down to $97.25 a month, excluding any limited-time deals. Once again, this is on top of the cost of the base plan.
|Sunday Ticket + RedZone||$389||$97.25|
Regardless of whether subscribing to NFL Sunday Ticket + NFL RedZone on a monthly or annual basis, the subscription will automatically renew each season at retail price, unless canceled.
