As the NFL season is drawing near, Google TV is about to become a football lover’s paradise with the integration of NFL Sunday Ticket. Google, having emerged victorious in the bidding war for the service last year, is set to make it available (and you can bet they’ll hype it up) on their platform. Besides Google TV, the NFL subscription service can also be accessed through YouTube and YouTube TV.
The product managers of Google TV, Nick Staubach and Sal Altayyar, proudly announced in a blog post, “As we kick off the new football season, Google TV will fully embrace NFL Sunday Ticket in the U.S. via YouTube and YouTube TV. Now, you can tap into live Sunday games that aren’t being played in your area, catch the best highlights, and have your Google TV tell you which games are a must-watch every week.” They went on to say that those YouTube TV users who add an NFL Sunday Ticket subscription will soon spot this feature in the app’s live tabs.
Securing the rights to NFL Sunday Ticket was no small feat for Google, who managed to outbid tech giants like Apple and Amazon in late 2022, breaking DirecTV’s almost 30-year-long control. Want to jump in? The current pricing is $399 through YouTube or $299 if bundled with a separate YouTube TV membership, which is $73 per month. And if you want the NFL RedZone channel for that exhilarating “whip-around coverage of every game on Sunday afternoon,” that’ll be an extra $40 on top.
But wait, there’s more! Google also spilled the beans that they are adding over 25 new free channels to Google TV. They kept the channels a mystery (perhaps just to keep us guessing), but they did reveal that shows like Top Gear and Baywatch would be featured. These unknown networks will soon take their place among Google TV’s already extensive lineup of over 800 FAST (free ad-supported streaming television) channels. Now, who’s ready for some football… and maybe a little lifeguard action on the side?
