NFL faces multi-billion dollar antitrust suit over its Sunday Ticket package

·1 min

A class action case challenging the legality of the NFL’s Sunday Ticket package could disrupt television rights deals in professional sports. The case, filed in 2015, argues that the NFL’s restrictions on broadcasting out-of-market games exclusively through the Sunday Ticket package forces customers to pay more. The plaintiffs seek billions in possible damages, with the NFL arguing that the current arrangement offers a wide selection of games at a good value. The case is being heard in federal court and could potentially call witnesses such as NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and team owners.
