The National Football League is facing a $6 billion class action lawsuit over claims it limited televised games and increased the cost of their “NFL Sunday Ticket” package.
DirecTV rights to ‘Sunday Ticket’ ended and the plaintiff’s attorneys are seeking damages for those who purchased the package from the provider since 2011.
According to Front Office Sports, the case will have two plaintiff classes. The residential class which includes at least 2.4 million members and commercial class which includes around 48,000 members.
Last December, the NFL announced Google would be the new home for the Sunday Ticket in a deal reportedly worth $2 billion per year. YouTube TV and YouTube Primetime Channels will have the exclusive rights to the package starting in 2023.
This won’t have an impact on the lawsuit.
