DirecTV to continue to offer Sunday Ticket to residential customers in Puerto Rico and US Virgin Islands

Why would it take until November for YouTube to offer NFL Sunday Ticket in those areas? Do they have to manually enter all the local IP addresses into a database one by one so they know exactly who's eligible?

at least November and they don't have youtube tv in Puerto Rico at all.
maybe they have rights / legal issues that are not yet worked.

Could also be because they don’t exactly have full network service. Like their CBS is a special feed of WSEE in Erie, PA with alternate programming in place of Erie local programming, their NBC is just a simulcast of WNBC via WKAQ-D3, their ABC is just a near-simulcast of WABC via WORA-D1, and their Fox is locally owned WSJP-L2. They likely just can’t come to a streaming deal with their respective networks, especially probably the Fox station, or their contractual agreements with the networks only allow streaming to the mainland US and not also PR & VI.
Heck, entering a PR ZIP code on the YTTV website just tells you straight up it’s not available!
