The NFL continues to move more into the streaming world, announcing Thursday a multi-year agreement to showcase the NFL Sunday Ticket on Youtube TV and YouTube Primetime Channels.

According to a press release from the NFL, the move from DirectTV to YouTube starts next season in 2023.

“We’re excited to bring NFL Sunday Ticket to YouTube TV and YouTube Primetime Channels and usher in a new era of how fans across the United States watch and follow the NFL,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in the league’s press release. “For a number of years we have been focused on increased digital distribution of our games and this partnership is yet another example of us looking towards the future and building the next generation of NFL fans.”

NFL Sunday Ticket includes out-of-market games for all football fans to watch.

“Starting next season, NFL Sunday Ticket will be available on two of YouTube’s growing subscription businesses as an add-on package on YouTube TV and standalone a-la-carte on YouTube Primetime Channels,” the press release reads.
