THE NFL has announced a discount for new subscribers to its streaming video subscription service on YouTube TV.
For a limited time, football fans can buy an NFL Sunday Ticket on YouTube at a discounted price, but many are still upset about the price.
The platforms offers a year of Sunday ticket coverage for $399 without a YouTube TV subscription or $299 with a subscription.
Should fans also want access to NFL RedZone, they will have to pay $439 without a subscription or $339 with one.
However, the NFL is offering a $50 discount off the price for the entire season, but it ends on September 19th.
Fans flooded social media with comments arguing that the $50 discount was too small and the service too expensive.
One explained: “50 is not enough.”
Another: “$400 plus for NFL games. No I’m fine.”
A third: “You have disabled replies so we can’t tell you how prohibitive that is. Bring back the monthly payment tiers and student discount.”
And a fourth: “What a rip off. $500 not to be able to watch EVERY game of your favorite team due to local/regional bans.”

Verizon also announced that all existing customers will be able to access one year of Sunday Pass free of charge when they upgrade to an Unlimited Plus plan.
Fans who choose not to upgrade can still save $100 off the Sunday Ticket by taking advantage of Verizon’s +Play plan.
This year, for new customers, the Sunday Ticket is accessible through the purchase of a specific smartphone, which is then activated with an Unlimited Plus tariff.
If Verizon Home internet users currently have a Fios plan, they can access this free Sunday pass for a year by upgrading to a Fios 1 Gig plan.
New Verizon home internet users who have chosen a Fios 1 Gig, 5G Home Plus or LTE Home Plus plan can also get access to the free annual Sunday pass.
