The NFL has completed its long-awaited new television deals, and to viewers at home they will look a lot like the old TV deals.

NBC will continue to show Sunday Night Football. ESPN will continue to show Monday Night Football. FOX will continue to show the NFC on Sunday afternoons. CBS will continue to show the AFC on Sunday afternoons.

Amazon, which previously had the rights only to simulcast Thursday Night Football on Prime Video, will now have the NFL’s first all-digital TV package with Thursday night games exclusively available through Amazon. The Amazon exclusive will begin with the 2023 season; FOX still has Thursday Night Football for the next two years.

“These new media deals will provide our fans even greater access to the games they love. We’re proud to grow our partnerships with the most innovative media companies in the market,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement. “Along with our recently completed labor agreement with the NFLPA, these distribution agreements bring an unprecedented era of stability to the League and will permit us to continue to grow and improve our game.”

The NFL now has its television deals locked in through the 2033 season, including Super Bowl assignments. NBC will show the Super Bowl after the 2021, 2025, 2029 and 2033 seasons. CBS will show the Super Bowl after the 2023, 2027 and 2031 seasons. FOX will show the Super Bowl after the 2022, 2024, 2028 and 2032 seasons. ESPN/ABC will show the Super Bowl after the 2026 and 2030 seasons.

  1. When will they offer the NFL sunday ticket at a reasonable price to all platforms?

  2. I will never be bullied into Amazon Prime no matter how hard amazon tries

  3. Knowing ESPN they will bring back the Booger Mobile for their turn to air the super bowl.

  4. Goodell is the greatest commish the NFL has ever seen, from the owners standpoint. He’s clearly doing what he’s paid to do. Also, where are the goofballs that said the NFL was crashing and burning?

    What is “reasonable”? The NFL is trying to max out revenues. Period. There isn’t a second goal in mind.

  6. If they truly want to best serve the fans, then they will find a way to offer Sunday Ticket through a streaming platform and not just satellite.

  7. I already get Amazon Prime. They better not raise the price just because they got football on Thursday nights.

  8. What will the impact be on the salary cap, assuming the league returns to a normal revenue stream?

  9. At the end he says helps us improve our league, don’t improve our league, leave it alone it’s perfect the way it was you’re ruining it

  10. Good news apart from ESPN. I was really hoping MNF would move to ABC. I still remember it being there and it’s never really felt the same since.

  11. If they truly want to best serve the fans…that’s never been their goal. That’s not how any of this works.

  12. I have never purchased anything from Amazon and have no intention of doing so in the future.

  13. So does this mean I have to pay for Sunday Ticket AND pay for Amazon? I am glad the TNF games are crap most of the time but to pay good money for not one but 2 subscriptions sucks
