The 2023 NFL season is still five months away, but it's time to start preparing.
On Tuesday, YouTube announced the pricing for NFL Sunday Ticket -- a package that allows fans to watch all of the games outside of their local television market on game days.

Here's a look at the cost breakdown:
- YouTube TV subscribers
- $349 for the entire regular season ($249 if you buy before June 6)
- $389 for the entire regular season and RedZone ($289 early)
- Non-YouTube TV subscribers
- $449 for the entire regular season ($349 early)
- $489 for the entire regular season and RedZone ($389 early)
DirectTV had been the home of NFL Sunday Ticket since 1994 before YouTube struck a seven-year deal with the league last December.
DirectTV charged users $300 for Sunday Ticket last year without needing any other subscriptions, but adding RedZone was an extra $100 (rather than $40 this year). YouTube TV costs $72.99 per month.
Shortly after the announcement, fans took to social media to express some displeasure with the details of the deal:
Others were upset at the lack of variety in the subscriptions. Many fans live outside of the market of their favorite team and would've been interested in just buying single games or single teams every week. That's not an option with YouTube, which has kept Sunday Ticket as an all-or-nothing product.
Fans still have some time to decide if they want to pay up, but it makes sense to buy before June 6 to save $100 on all the packages.
