YouTube TV subscribers will now be able to get NFL programming for the upcoming 2020 season.
The NFL Media and YouTube TV have announced that the NFL Network and NFL RedZone will be available for their subscribers. The NFL Network will be available immediately as part of their base membership. According to the two sides, the NFL RedZone will be available as part of YouTube TV’s new add-on package, called Sports Plus.
The addition of the NFL Network allows YouTube TV subscribers to now view live NFL games, live studio programming (Good Morning Football, NFL GameDay Morning, NFL Now and NFL Total Access), plus NFL shows such as A Football Life, NFL 360 and America’s Game.
“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,” said Hans Schroeder, EVP and Chief Operating Officer of NFL Media. “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 NFL brand continues to be the most popular programming on TV, accounting for 47 of the top 50 shows on television in 2019.
