YouTube has upgraded the number of streams it offers with NFL Sunday Ticket to unlimited. For those that have already signed up to the NFL add-on, or are still considering signing up, this is a major upgrade, and at no additional cost.

Previously, YouTube was only providing Sunday Ticket subscribers with two streams. This was the same limitation provided to YouTube TV subscribers, and even though YouTube TV members get three simultaneous streams as standard with their live TV base package.

Now, and after ‘hearing user feedback’, YouTube has confirmed it is upgrading the number of NFL Sunday Ticket streams to unlimited. As to be expected, there are some limitations that are still in place, with the main one being that only streams at home will count towards the unlimited quota.

If, for example, either a YouTube user or YouTube TV member is watching NFL Sunday Ticket while away from the home network then this will count towards the two-stream limit that’s still imposed on away-from-home streams.

For those subscribers that have also bundled NFL RedZone with their Sunday Ticket subscription, RedZone will be limited in exactly the same way. In other words, NFL RedZone streams at home count towards the unlimited streams, while watching RedZone away from home count towards the two on-the-go streams.

Due to the way many people watch football at home, this was a major limitation, and so it is good that YouTube has managed to find a way to unlock unlimited streams, and just as impressively, at no additional cost to subscribers.

While YouTube TV does also offer the option of unlimited streams for its base plan, the additional streams are only available to those that pay extra for the 4K Plus add-on each month. For those wondering, that base plan limitation still applies if you are signed up Sunday Ticket.

The unlimited streams upgrade announced today is only for NFL Sunday Ticket and not the base plan.
