YouTube users and YouTube TV subscribers now have the option of paying monthly for NFL Sunday Ticket. However, the monthly subscription payment option won’t be available in some states.

When preorders for YouTube’s version of Sunday Ticket opened, one of the big issues was that football fans had to pay up front for a subscription for the entire season. Depending on the plan, this could mean paying up to $489 in advance.

Today, that changes. YouTube has now added the option to pay for NFL Sunday Ticket on a monthly basis, and regardless of whether subscribed through YouTube or YouTube TV.

Technically, the new payment option makes it possible to pay over four installments. For example, if purchasing NFL Sunday Ticket through Primetime Channels for $399, subscribers will pay $99.75 for the first instalment and then 3 more payments of $99.75 over the next 3 months.

Due to compliance with local requirements, residents in the following 7 states won’t be offered the option to pay monthly for Sunday Ticket.

  • Georgia
  • New York
  • Minnesota
  • Nevada
  • Missouri
  • Tennessee
  • New Jersey

A subscriber’s location is determined by their Home address, and in the locations listed above, only the option to pay for Sunday Ticket in full will be available.

For those living in any other state, they should now find that the monthly option is already available to them. For example, when attempting to add Sunday Ticket to the YouTube TV base plan, the option to pay over 4 installments or in full is offered.

Another caveat to be aware of is that a monthly Sunday Ticket subscription cannot be canceled once a purchase has been made. After the first payment has been taken, subscribers will automatically continue to be charged on a monthly basis for all remaining payments due for that season.

YouTube also confirmed that new student Sunday Ticket plans will also start to become available within the next week, although no further details on these student plans were provided.
