Sky Sports to launch dedicated NFL channel
UK NFL fans can now watch the entire season live.
Sky has announced a brand new Sky Sports channel, which will air all the action from the National Football League.
The channel, Sky Sports NFL, is part of a five-year agreement between the two organisations, which will allow Sky to broadcast games from across the NFL season, when it begins on Thursday, September 10th.
Sky Sports NFL promises to be the ultimate location for UK NFL fans, offering:
- Minimum of five live games each week
- First-pick exclusive game on Sky Sports NFL in the 6pm and 9pm slot every Sunday
- Every Thursday Night, Sunday Night, and Monday Night Football
- NFL RedZone
- Every minute of every playoff game, Pro Bowl, and Super Bowl live
The new channel is capitalising on the increasing popularity of the sport in the UK, offering the chance to watch every game live for the first time.
Previously, only select games and the Super Bowl were available to watch live, but now fans can catch all the action alongside a number of original shows around the league.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said that the partnership represented a great opportunity for Brits to get into American Football.
“Sky Sports has been a fantastic broadcast partner for a quarter of a century. This new five-year agreement and the launch of a dedicated Sky Sports NFL channel will undoubtedly continue our rapid growth in the UK and Ireland. We are excited that our expanded partnership with Sky will provide even more NFL content to our millions of UK and Irish fans.”
The channel will launch on September 3rd and will join the roster of other dedicated Sky Sports channels, including Golf, Premier League, F1 and Cricket.
