Just in time for football season, YouTube TV has added NFL Network to its channel lineup.
This development had been rumored for a couple of days, but YouTube TV confirmed the news in a tweet on Thursday, September 3.

The addition of NFL Network comes at no extra charge for YouTube TV subscribers.
The streaming TV service sharply raised its monthly price from $50 to $65 in June 2020 when it added ViacomCBS networks to its base plan.
Sports Plus Add-On
Although NFL Network is available to all subscribers, YouTube TV has launched a Sports Plus add-on for premium networks.
Sports Plus includes seven networks for an extra $10.99 per month: NFL RedZone, Fox College Sports, GolTV, Fox Soccer Plus, MAVTV Motorsports Network, TVG and Stadium.
NFL Network and the new Sports Plus add-on are available immediately.
If you’re a new YouTube TV subscriber, the service is advertising a two-week free trial if you sign up before September 14. Normally, the free trial is only a week.
