The contract is for five years.
What I was also told, in the email, is that Sky will have a channel dedicated completely to the NFL. It''ll start in early September and will be called..
Sky Sports NFL.
Here's what will be included in the channel:
- A minimum of five live games each week
- First-pick exclusive game on Sky Sports in the 6PM and 9PM slot every Sunday
- NFL RedZone (yes!)
- Every minute of every playoff game, Pro Bowl and Super Bowl live
- Flagship programming from the NFL Network, including Good Morning Football and Total Access
- Award winning documentaries and other content from NFL Films and NBC Sports
- Brand new weekly shows to review the action and discuss the stories of the league, including original Sky Sports programming
To be fair, it just seems like what we have been getting on Sky Sports before now. However, it'll all be on one dedicated channel.
