Frontier launches NFL Sunday Ticket discount through YouTube TV

The deal is part of a partnership that involves Frontier pushing Internet customers toward YouTube TV for their live television needs.

Frontier has teamed up with Google-backed streaming service YouTube TV to offer Internet customers a special discount on the NFL Sunday Ticket package.

From now until August 21st, Frontier Internet customers who sign up for a YouTube TV package can score $100 off NFL Sunday Ticket, which offers access to Sunday morning and afternoon games broadcast on CBS and Fox stations beyond a viewer’s home area.

YouTube TV also includes local CBS and Fox stations in most areas, as well as local NBC stations and live access to ESPN, which means NFL Sunday Ticket subscribers will have the ability to view most NFL games during the season. (Thursday evening games are exclusive to Amazon’s Prime Video, though some games air on local stations within a team’s home market.)

The Frontier deal for NFL Sunday Ticket through YouTube TV is available to new and existing customers alike. NFL Sunday Ticket typically costs $350 a year when purchased through YouTube TV; the deal brings that price down to $250.

As with buying through YouTube TV directly, there are no refunds when a customer pays for NFL Sunday Ticket through the Frontier-YouTube TV partnership.

Frontier began allowing its Internet customers to subscribe to YouTube TV earlier this year. The partnership allows customers to subscribe to YouTube TV through Frontier, and then receive one bill for both their live-streaming TV and Internet services.

“Our partnership with YouTube TV makes it easier for customers to ditch cable,” John Harrobin, Frontier’s executive vice president of consumer relations, said in March. “We take our position as the un-cable provider seriously and are constantly listening to consumers. Many want one source for internet and TV, and that’s what this partnership is all about.”
