YouTube has announced a big upgrade to its NFL Sunday Ticket offering, allowing users to watch unlimited simultaneous streams of content across both YouTube and YouTube TV.
This change could mean that some houses will be watching more football when the regular season rolls around in September, especially if they take advantage of YouTube TV’s new multiview feature. If users are not at home, the two-stream limit will still be in place.
YouTube landed NFL Sunday Ticket in December, ending a monthslong process to determine where the broadcasting package would end up after DirecTV.
YouTube’s NFL Sunday Ticket plans currently start at $249, but the plans will get more expensive once the promotional pricing goes away after June 6th. If users are a business, DirecTV will still be selling NFL Sunday Ticket, which might come as a relief to sports bar owners who didn’t want to sign up for YouTube TV.
