This weekend, or rather tonight, when the Detroit Lions play the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday Night Football, the NFL season officially begins. On the other hand, Sunday and Monday night schedules are completely booked. So, this weekend marks the debut of the NFL Sunday Ticket on YouTube and YouTube TV.
Excited right But hold on, we have another piece of information that will ignite your excitement level to even higher degrees. In order to provide users with a great NFL season, YouTube and YouTube TV have come forward with a free trial. Reportedly, the trial will be one week long and provide users with access to NFL Sunday Ticket. It will begin on Sunday, September 10, 2023. However, there are a few limitations to the free offer.
The offer comes with several limitations
Although the trial is free, it will only be available to those users who sign up for NFL Sunday Ticket. The free trial will be rolled out in phases, according to YouTube. If a user signed up a few months ago, he might not be eligible for this free trial. The help page published by YouTube states that only those who sign up for NFL Sunday Ticket or NFL Sunday Ticket with NFL RedZone on YouTube or YouTube TV are eligible for 7-day free trials.
Besides a few other restrictions, users are required to sign up without a mobile carrier or ISP. One thing to notice here is that recent and previous NFL Sunday Ticket or NFL Sunday Ticket with NFL RedZone subscribers on YouTube or YouTube TV are ineligible for this offer.
So, the free trial is targeted at a very small number of users. Of course, it is different from the offers rolled out by YouTube on holiday weekends on premium channels like MAX, SHOWTIME, Cinemax, and others. It seems like the basic purpose of this offer is to compel users to sign up for an NFL Sunday ticket, which is not at all cheap. It is priced at $299 with YouTube TV and $399 without YouTube TV. It is the price for the complete season, which is five months long. Anyway, it is a good approach to attracting users.
