YouTube and YouTube TV are the new home of the NFL Sunday Ticket this year. Right now, YouTube TV is offering a special deal that if you pre-order, you can get a discount on the cost of the service. This has left many to wonder what will happen if they want to cancel YouTube TV but keep NFL Sunday Ticket.
According to Google, sadly, if you cancel YouTube TV, you will also lose access to NFL Sunday Ticket, and you will not be getting a refund.
Here is what YouTube TV says on its support page about this issue:
To buy and access NFL Sunday Ticket on YouTube TV, you must have an active YouTube TV Base Plan subscription. If you cancel or pause your Base Plan, you lose access to NFL Sunday Ticket at the end of your current billing cycle and won’t receive a refund. You will also lose access to any NFL Sunday Ticket free trials you may have claimed.
To regain access to NFL Sunday Ticket, simply restart the YouTube TV Base Plan from the account you used to sign up. Learn how to manage your YouTube TV membership.
