The NFL is undoubtedly one of the most popular leagues on the planet. Innumerable youngsters give in their all during their school and college days to get one chance to play for an NFL franchise.

It ain’t easy, it definitely isn’t because football is one of the most physically demanding sports in the world which requires both, flexibility and strength in appropriate proportion.

While players earn massive amounts of money, they also end up sustaining life-altering injuries after taking brutal hits during the high profile games.

When the stakes are this high, when the popularity graph threatens to annihilate all boundaries, you know that broadcasting rights are going to go for an enormous amount of money.

Apple and Amazon Prime are also reportedly bidding to get Sunday Ticket rights

The broadcasting rights in NFL are scattered across the board because of the massive number of viewers who tune in whenever a game is on. For Thursday Night clashes, Amazon Prime is paying the league around $1 Billion every year. The deal has been finalized for 11 years.

On the other hand, since 1994, the ‘Sunday Ticket’ has been with DirecTV which pays the league $1.5 Billion each year. However, after the end of the current season, this deal will expire.

Moreover, as per Wall Street Journal, the NFL is in talks with YouTube TV to finalize a deal regarding the ‘Sunday Ticket.’ This means that YouTube, which is owned by Google, will probably broadcast the Sunday games once both the parties agree for a deal.

As far as the the ‘Sunday Ticket’ prices for the viewers are concerned, they currently pay around $300 for an entire season and this number is expected to change, depending upon the kind of money YouTube decides to give to the NFL for the rights.

Moreover, Apple and Amazon are also in the race to grab the Sunday Ticket rights but as of now, YouTube TV seems to be the frontrunner. For now, any information on the exact amount of money which YouTube might pay is not available. This also means that to know the updated Sunday Ticket prices, fans would have to wait a little more.
