Default Google to host NFL games on Youtube?

Will Americans tune into YouTube for Sunday football games in the next couple years? A recent report raises the possibility.

AllThingsD reports that top execs from Google and YouTube met with the National Football League on Tuesday to discuss the possibility of picking up the Sunday Ticket package, which broadcasts games not being shown in the local market.

DirecTV currently has rights to the Sunday Ticket package — something it pays $1 billion a year for — but that deal expires at the end of the 2014 season. That said, the NFL appears to be in the early stages of talking with other possible partners.

Google did not immediately respond to our request for comment on the report. A rep for the NFL told Mashable that it would not comment on "any specifics," but noted that it often meets with Silicon Valley companies.

"Members of our office meet often with innovative leaders in Silicon Valley and around the world," the NFL rep said. "We are constantly looking for ways to make our game better on the field, in the stadium, and for fans. We are not commenting on any specifics of the meetings."

http://mashable.com/2013/08/21/google-nfl-talks/

Far more stunning than the potential loss of the NFL Sunday Ticket package by DirecTV could be its new landing spot.

According to All Things Digital (via SportsBusiness Daily), the rights held by DirecTV since 1994 were “among the topics of discussion” that came up during a Tuesday meeting between Google CEO Larry Page, YouTube Head of Content & Business Operations Robert Kyncl, and a delegation from the NFL that included Commissioner Roger Goodell.

It was mentioned here but I thought it deserved its own thread.

DirecTV currently pays $1 billion per year for the package. DirecTV CFO Pat Doyle said in March that the satellite giant could strike a non-exclusive deal with NFL or dump the package completely when the current deal expires after the 2014 season.

Why would they buy it from DTV? They could just outbid DTV and enter into an agreement with the NFL.

I would love this. Google will find a way to put this out for free (ads) or on the cheap. I can then have the Youtube video streamed to my computer, my phone, or to my tv with Chromecast or some other streaming technology. No need to have a satellite attached to my roof, a special cable box installed, installation fees, wires ran through the house, or dealing with Direct tv. Win, win, win, win, win.

I know I'd ditch TV entirely if the NFL went to Youtube. I can't tell you just how few ****s I give about Storage Wars, Dancing with the Cosmos, and Real World Latvia.

they could pay so much more than the 1 billion DTV pays because the audience they would reach on the internet would be astronomical in size compared to one satellite tv provider.

Make this happen google

This could certainly be the event that reshapes entertainment delivery. No reason why a Roku or homegrown solution couldn't do it all.

I don't know why the NFL just doesn't stream it themselves.

I would love to be able to take down that hideous dish on the side of my house and get rid of that hotplate receiver that eats energy even though I not get programming from it after the Football season ends.

If Google and youtube do get it it better be HD with no streaming issues.

I hate this Exclusive set up. This is America, don't we have monopoly laws and ****?

I guess they could use chromecast:

http://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome...ecast/#netflix

HD solutions will grow, the market for them would be massive. If they don't have to pay for Direct TV, they could afford higher bandwidth internet. This all falls in line with Googles dream of pushing fiberoptic internet throughout the country.

I have no idea how this will pan out, but...with that said...

There's no way YouTube/Google outbids Directv/Comcast/etc and then offers this for free.

Only fooling yourself if that's what you're hoping for.
