TV Answer Man, I see that YouTube cut the price of the Sunday Ticket by 50 percent. Did they do the same thing for the student price? That would be great! — Carly, Los Angeles.
Carly, YouTube TV and YouTube Primetime Channels last week dropped the price of the NFL Sunday Ticket by 50 percent. The base price for the Ticket on YouTube TV is now $174 (previously $349) while the bundle plan with the NFL RedZone channel included is $194 (previously $389). The YouTube Primetime Channels’ base Ticket plan is now $224 (previously $449) while the YouTube Primetime Channels’ bundle package (NFL RedZone included) is now $244 (previously $489).
Is the Sunday Ticket Student Price Discounted?
But what about the university student discount, you ask? Is that 50 percent off, too? Answer: Sorry, but no. The college base price has been $109 from the start of the season and it remains $109 even though the season is half over. And if you want to add the NFL RedZone channel to the base package, that’s an additional $10.
How Do You Sign Up For the Sunday Ticket Student Price?
By the way, if you’re still interested in signing up, YouTube says on its Sunday Ticket support page that student plans do not include family sharing and only include one signed-in device and one concurrent stream at a time. To sign up for the Sunday Ticket student plan, you must be 18 years of age or older; be enrolled as a student at an accredited college or university; and be verified as a student by SheerID. For help with the verification process, you can contact SheerID or review their FAQs. While you do not need to be enrolled at a U.S. institution to be eligible, you must be located in the U.S. to watch and purchase NFL Sunday Ticket on YouTube.
