Rumors are spreading around social media, with YouTube TV subscribers saying NFL Network and a new sports add-on will be added to the streaming service ahead of the start of the NFL season. Subscribers say when they searched for “NFL” last night, NFL Network and NFL Redzone showed up in the search results.
Some Twitter and Reddit users have also been posting that they’ve seen placeholder pages for the channels, though it looks like nothing has been confirmed just yet.
In a screenshot that has been circulating, TVG, Stadium, GOLTV, NFL Redzone, Fox Soccer Plus, MAV TV, and Fox College Sports are listed under “Sports Plus,” suggesting that there will be an add-on bundle for sports fans.
YouTube is still not offering up any details.
YouTube TV raised its price from $49.99 per month to $64.99 per month in June, along with adding ViacomCBS channels to its base package. While a $15 increase seemed high, even with the 14 new channels, the price hike would make more sense if the plan was to include NFL Network in the new block of channels.
