Recently YouTube TV announced special NFL Sunday Pricing compared to other customers who want to get NFL Sunday Ticket without being a YouTube TV customer.
For our YouTube TV subscribers with a Base Plan, the NFL Sunday Ticket add-on is available during the presale at $249 for the season, a special launch offer savings of $100 off the retail price of $349 for the season. YouTube TV will also offer a bundle option with NFL Sunday Ticket and NFL RedZone for a total of $289 for the season during the presale, another launch offer of $100 off the retail price of $389 for the season. YouTube TV subscribers will have access to every Sunday game, including local, national, and out-of-market games.
If you are not a YouTube TV subscriber NFL Sunday Ticket is available on YouTube during the presale at $349 for the season, a special launch offer savings of $100 off the retail price of $449 for the season. And the bundled NFL Sunday Ticket and NFL Redzone option is available during the presale at $389 for the season, a launch offer of $100 off the retail price of $489 for the season. This will allow you to watch out-of-market games on YouTube without YouTube TV.
To get this pricing, you need to preorder before June 6th, 2023. Signups for this preorder are now live on YouTube TV and YouTube.
There is one big catch, though if you pay for YouTube TV through 3rd party billing, you are unable to sign up for the NFL Sunday Ticket add-on. This includes if you pay through an internet provider like Frontier or even bill through Google’s Play Store, for example.
Apparently, according to YouTube TV support, the issue has to do with how the billing is handled. YouTube TV is unable to apply the billing to Frontier customers’ accounts or any 3rd party billing service, preventing them from signing up for YouTube TV’s NFL Sunday Ticket pricing.
This news comes as recently YouTube TV and Frontier partnered to allow customers to bundle YouTube TV and Frontier internet into a single bill. Now though, some are finding out there are some hidden catches with that offer.
Google has confirmed to Cord Cutters News that a fix is being worked on for Frontier customers and that they will honor the discounted price for Frontier customers and all 3rd party billing customers. Google went on to say they would even honor the price if Google is unable to fix this issue before June 6th, 2023.
If you are paying through other 3rd party options like the Google Play Store, it has been reported that canceling and signing back up with a credit card directly through YouTube TV fixes the issue.
No timeline has been announced for when this issue will be fixed.
