Verizon announced today that it’s giving new and existing customers the opportunity to get NFL Sunday Ticket for free. Yes, there are some details, but the bottom line is a whole bunch of folks are going to be able to watch out-of-market NFL games this year on YouTube or YouTube TV, and not pay an extra cent for it. (And some will at least get a $100 discount.)
The deal will be available starting July 27.
“Verizon has been a strategic partner with the NFL since 2010, and today’s announcement is just the latest extension of this outstanding relationship,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a press release. “They have consistently helped us provide best-in-class experiences and content to fans wherever they are.

There’s a little more fine print (and we recommend you read it for yourself) that’s worth knowing. If you cancel your service before February 29, 2024, Verizon will charge you back the value of the NFL Sunday Ticket subscription. Also, said subscription will automatically renew for the 2024-25 season. And if you live in a city with an NFL team, you might not be able to watch it on NFL Sunday Ticket.
