If you are currently considering signing up to NFL Sunday Ticket through YouTube then you might have some questions about how it all works. Hopefully, we can answer many of the most common ones for you right here.
Before jumping into the Sunday Ticket FAQs, it is worth mentioning that there are now two ways to subscribe to Sunday Ticket – through YouTube as a standalone Primetime Channel subscription and through YouTube TV as a paid add-on which needs to be bundled with the base live TV plan.
While most of the benefits and limitations are the same for both subscription options, there are some differences which may help in deciding which one is the best option.
Sunday Ticket On YouTube FAQs
Below you will find answers to questions on what’s included, the cost, watching more than one game at the same time, and more.
What’s included with Sunday Ticket?
Regardless of whether signing up through YouTube or YouTube TV, Sunday Ticket subscribers get access to every out-of-market Sunday afternoon game during regular season.
If signed up to YouTube TV, subscribers also get access to local games, unlocking access to every Sunday game, including local, national, and out-of-market games.
For those that want access to some addition NFL content during the season, it is also possible to bundle Sunday Ticket with NFL RedZone. The option to bundle both services is available to both YouTube and YouTube TV subscribers.
How much is NFL Sunday Ticket in 2023?
The cost of Sunday Ticket depends on whether you plan to sign up through YouTube or through YouTube TV, and whether you want to bundle with RedZone.
|with RedZone||$389 presale|
In addition to the costs listed above, YouTube TV also requires Sunday Ticket subscribers to be signed up to its base plan to maintain access to Sunday Ticket. This essentially means that Sunday Ticket through YouTube TV requires an additional $72.99 per month during the NFL Season.
Neither YouTube nor YouTube TV offer a refund on Sunday Ticket, so it is important to pick the right subscription method before signing up.
Can you pay monthly for Sunday Ticket
No. Neither YouTube nor YouTube TV offers an option to subscribe to Sunday Ticket on a monthly basis. At present, the annual (season) plan is the only option.
Is there a Sunday Ticket free trial?
No. Neither YouTube nor YouTube TV offer a free trial with Sunday Ticket. Instead, anyone signing up to Sunday Ticket will be required to pay the full cost in advance and when signing up.
If signing up to Sunday Ticket through YouTube TV, and not currently a YouTube TV subscriber, then you may be able to take advantage of a YouTube TV base plan free trial. If you have been a YouTube TV subscriber in the past, then it is likely you will be eligible for a base plan free trial.
If you are eligible for a base plan free trial, you will still need to pay for the NFL Sunday Ticket subscription when signing up for the YouTube TV free trial, assuming you are signing up to both services at the same time.
Is there a Sunday Ticket student discount?
No. Neither YouTube nor YouTube TV offer a student discount.
How many devices can you watch Sunday Ticket on?
You can watch Sunday Ticket on a maximum of 2 devices at the same time. This is irrespective of whether signing up through YouTube or YouTube TV.
If signed up through YouTube TV and currently share the live TV subscription with family or friends then ‘family members’ will also be able to watch Sunday Ticket, providing the subscription was purchased by the family manager (account holder). However, the 2-stream limit applies to all members, so only two people can watch at the same time on different devices.
While YouTube TV does come with its own simultaneous streams limitations, Sunday Ticket is a completely different subscription. In other words, Sunday Ticket streams do not affect YouTube TV streams and vice versa. Those signed up to YouTube TV can somewhat get around the 2-stream limitation by utilizing the new multiview feature.
How does multiview work?
Multiview offers the option to watch up to 4 streams at the same time on the same screen. Essentially, the screen is broken down into four smaller windows and each of these windows can be used to watch a different game.
Four is the maximum here and not the default, so it is also possible to watch a minimum of 2 feeds at the same time when wanted.
Multiview is currently only available to YouTube TV subscribers. YouTube has said that the plan is to make it available to standard YouTube users in the future. While there is currently no firm date on when that might happen, support is expected to be added before the start of the season.
Does Sunday Ticket automatically renew next year?
Sunday Ticket does automatically renew if signed up to the Primetime Channel through YouTube. Standard YouTube users can adjust this by navigating to the Primetime Channels settings on YouTube and canceling auto-renewal.
Sunday Ticket does not automatically renew if signed up through YouTube TV. Instead this is a one-off subscription which will need to be manually purchased again next year.
