Today, YouTube TV added NFL Network to its channel lineup and introduced a new Sports Plus add-on package that will include NFL Red Zone, along with Fox College Sports, GolTV, Fox Soccer Plus, MAVTV Motorsports Network, TVG, and Stadium for $10.99/month.
Before today’s announcement, fuboTV and Vidgo were the only two live TV streaming services to offer NFL Network.
“We are excited to bring NFL Network and NFL RedZone to YouTube TV subscribers, just in time for Kickoff of the NFL’s 2020 season,” NFL Media EVP and chief operating officer Hans Schroeder said. “The opportunity to give NFL Network and NFL RedZone the broadest distribution as possible to our fans remains a top priority for us, so we’re pleased to bring our lineup of exclusive live games, informative shows and award-winning content to the YouTube TV channel lineup.”
The update came at just the right time for football fans to catch the beginning of the NFL season when the Houston Texans play the Kansas City Chiefs on September 10.
“Sports fans have been some of our most passionate members since we launched YouTube TV, so we’re thrilled to introduce NFL Network to our line-up of more than 85 channels, plus NFL RedZone as part of our new Sports Plus add-on package,” YouTube TV global head of partnerships Lori Conkling said. “This partnership further demonstrates our commitment to offer a premium portfolio of content to our members.”
