The "Sunday Ticket" package of out-of-market Sunday afternoon games will be available on the internet through a multiyear agreement between the National Football League and the internet giant.

The package, which has been on DirecTV for more than 20 years, was being sought by the National Football League. The eight-year contract with the satellite provider ends at the end of the season.

During an interview with CNBC over the summer, Commissioner Roger Goodell stated that the next move for "Sunday Ticket" would be to a streaming service.

With Thursday's announcement, he continued that.

"For a number of years we have been focused on increased digital distribution of our games and this partnership is yet another example of us looking towards the future and building the next generation of NFL fans."

In less than two years, the league has partnerships with streaming services to show games. The league has an 11-year deal with Amazon Prime Video.

Apple and Disney expressed interest in the package.

As the ways fans enjoy NFL football evolve in a changing media landscape, partnerships with innovators like YouTube will ensure that more games are available to more fans. Future generations will be able to follow their favorite sport thanks to this partnership.

Since 2015, the NFL has had a presence on the video sharing site. It now includes channels for all 32 teams and 10 official league channels.

The NFL Network and NFL RedZone are available on the internet.

"With this expanded partnership with the NFL, viewers will now be able to experience the game they love in compelling and innovative ways through YouTube TV or YouTube Primetime Channels," Susan Wojcicki said in a statement. We are excited to continue our work with the NFL to make YouTube a great place for sports fans.

"Sunday Ticket" will be an add-on package on TV and a la carte on the internet.

In June, the company said that it had surpassed 5 million accounts and was the largest internet-based pay TV service in the US.

The service allows users to subscribe and watch content from streaming services on the app.

The Sunday afternoon games are carried by CBS and Fox and the price is not expected to go down.

The package averages 2 million subscribers and is paid for by viewers.

The league will work with YouTube to find ways to support the distribution of "Sunday Ticket" in commercial establishments.

Amazon and DirecTV agreed to make Thursday night games available in bars and restaurants.
