NFL Sunday Ticket Renewal Costs DirecTV Close to $1.4 Billion
DirecTV and the National Football League are reportedly close to extending their annual license deal through 2021 or 2022, but it will cost the Satellite TV provider around $1.4 billion, according to the Sports Business Daily.
The NFL Sunday Ticket package allows subscribers the opportunity to watch every regular season NFL game on Sundays, along with their DirecTV NFL Red Zone channel, which flips live to games when offenses are in scoring position. This is a long-loved feature for Fantasy Football owners.
The NFL and DirecTV are also exploring opportunities in digital distribution, talking with companies like Google.
There are 2 million DirecTV subscribers, and about 10 percent of that customer base pays for the NFL Sunday Ticket package, which costs around $240.
For customers wanting the NFL Sunday Ticket Max package, theyâ€™ll have to pay close to $330. That package includes the Red Zone Channel and Short Cuts, along with mobile and online access to all of the games.
