The National Football League announced Thursday that it has signed long-term agreements with media partners CBS, ESPN/ABC, FOX, NBC, and Amazon.
Overall, the deal is worth over $100 billion dollars and runs through the end of the 2033 season.
Here are the major details:
AMAZON: Amazon has acquired the exclusive rights to Thursday Night Football. The number of games Amazon will stream is still to be determined but is likely to be 15 games per season, the WSJ reports. Those games won’t be available on TV, save for the local markets of the two teams playing.
CBS: CBS retains the rights for the Sunday afternoon AFC package. All games will also steam live on Paramount+.
ABC/ESPN: The NFL says, “ESPN will continue to be the NFL’s television partner for cable’s most-watched series, Monday Night Football. Additionally, ABC has acquired the rights to televise two Super Bowls along with exclusive regular season games.”
FOX: FOX retains the rights for the Sunday afternoon NFC package.
NBC: NBC holds onto Sunday Night Football and will simulcast each on Peacock.
Here is the upcoming Super Bowl schedule:
- CBS: 2023, 2027, 2031
- FOX: 2024, 2028, 2032
- NBC: 2025, 2029, 2033
- ESPN/ABC: 2026, 2030
A major win for everyone involved.

Guess I won’t be watching Thursday Night Football…
Yep. Cancelled my Prime in January. TNF games often suck anyway.
Big Fail. i won’t turn on Amazon again or Espn, so the $100 billion is a lie. no way these media partners are gonna pay without adjustment.
goodell has just sent the NFL down a pay per view path. fewer eyeballs on your product means fewer future fans. You idiots.
somewhere Pete Rozell is turning over in his grave. Football games should be free on TV and yet it no longer is. good luck filling stadiums.
the next couple years will be interesting with all the ‘wait and see’ 1 year huge contracts.
Stop the Woke and the Anti Fan Protests!!
We live in interesting times….we are literally watching them kill the golden goose. Couldn’t happen to a better bunch of wokes and criminal supporters.
The NFL won’t decline as fast as the NBA but it wouldn’t surprise me if the NFL is a shell of itself in 5 years.
Next will be rate hikes for Prime, Peacock, etc….
No interest. Which is crazy for me.
