YouTube and YouTube TV now offer 7-day free trials of NFL Sunday Ticket, providing football fans with a way to check out the service before having to pay for the subscription.


YouTube officially took over as provider of Sunday Ticket this year and has been aggressively marketing its subscription options ever since. Over the past few months, YouTube has upgraded the number of streams to unlimited, added the option to pay monthly, and launched a discounted version for students.

Now, YouTube has begun offering free trials of Sunday Ticket as well. The new free trials are available to both YouTube users and YouTube TV subscribers. A free trial is also available regardless of whether signing up to the standard NFL Sunday Ticket plan or the NFL Sunday Ticket with NFL RedZone bundle.


Right now, however, Sunday Ticket free trials are only available when signing up via a computer or mobile browser. Basically, football fans won’t see the option of a free trial when using either the YouTube or YouTube TV apps to subscribe.

In addition, a free trial is only available with the main annual plan options. In other words, it is not possible to get a free trial by signing up to a monthly plan, a student plan, or if signing up through a mobile carrier or internet provider, like Frontier, Verizon, or Wow!. Those already signed up to Sunday Ticket aren’t eligible for a free trial either.

Lastly, it is also worth noting that the availability of Sunday Ticket free trials is still something that’s in the process of rolling out. If, for example, you don’t see the free trial option when signing up, YouTube recommends checking again at a later time, as the option should eventually become available.
