BREAKING: The NFL is near a deal with Google’s YouTube for Sunday Ticket

Written by Tony Ghaul

The NFL in advanced talks with YouTube for rights to its coveted Sunday Ticket package which allows fans to watch nearly all the games that air on Sunday. The Wall Street Journal reported the deal could be finalized as soon as tomorrow, after a meeting of NFL owners, who vote on such agreements.

DirecTV currently pays $1.5 billion annually for the rights to Sunday Ticket, according to WSJ. Any new deal would certainly be higher given the league’s ongoing popularity. The Sunday Ticket package had been part of DirecTV since its inception in 1994.
