NFL Sunday Ticket moves to YouTube TV and YouTube for the 2023 season, but it’s YouTube TV members who will get the best price — especially if they sign up early.
NFL Sunday Ticket is a premium service that offers access to all out-of-market Sunday afternoon games during the regular season.
What You Need to Know Before You Sign Up for NFL Sunday Ticket
With the move from DIRECTV to YouTube TV and YouTube, NFL Sunday Ticket will be available without a satellite dish. A high-speed internet connection and a supported streaming device are required.
There are two ways to get NFL Sunday Ticket for 2023:
- Purchase an add-on to YouTube TV’s base plan
- Purchase standalone through YouTube Primetime Channels

YouTube TV members get a price break on NFL Sunday Ticket, but you must maintain an active YouTube TV subscription if you choose this deal. The base plan is currently $72.99 per month.
With the YouTube TV base plan, you’ll also get the networks that carry local and national NFL games like CBS, FOX and NBC.
For those who don’t see the value in the YouTube TV base plan, Google is offering NFL Sunday Ticket as a standalone service through YouTube Primetime Channels.
Whether you sign up through YouTube TV or YouTube, you can get the service with or without NFL RedZone.
IMPORTANT: NFL RedZone will still be offered outside of the NFL Sunday Ticket bundles. YouTube TV base plan members can get NFL RedZone with the Sports Plus add-on for $10.99 per month.

Which NFL Sunday Ticket Plan Should You Choose?
If you want NFL Sunday Ticket, should you buy it through YouTube TV or YouTube Primetime Channels?
Here’s the way I see it:
If you’re someone who watches a lot of TV on local channels and cable networks, purchasing through YouTube TV probably makes sense. Just make sure the service has your must-have channels if you haven’t tried it.
If you don’t need a pay-TV bundle because you have an antenna to follow your local NFL team, YouTube Primetime Channels may be a better choice for NFL Sunday Ticket.
In this case, NFL Sunday Ticket will cost more but you won’t have to pay $72.99 per month for YouTube TV.
Still, I’m hearing from a lot of people who say they’re going to pass on NFL Sunday Ticket and just subscribe to NFL RedZone through a live TV streaming service or NFL+ Premium.
