Fox is getting the NFL'sThursday Night Football package for the next five years. FOX Sports will broadcast 11 Thursday night games per season, ranging from Week 4 to 15. As Ourand said in his tweet, Amazon ran the digital package previous year, but those rights are still undetermined for 2018.
During the 2014 and '15 season, CBS paid $37.5 million per game, and NBC linked up with CBS the last two seasons at $45 million per contest. Goodell told the media on a call Wednesday morning that the National Football League with Fox will also decide on a partner to take on the digital rights to live-stream the games. NBC's "Sunday Night Football" was the top-rated prime-time program a year ago, according to Nielsen, although it, too, suffered a ratings decline; and 37 of the 50 most-watched programs in 2017 were NFL games, per the Los Angeles Times.
As in recent years, Fox will have to share some of the rights for Thursday Night Football. It's appeared on NBC, CBS, Universo via Telemundo Deportes, and most recently, Amazon Prime in 2017 for select games.
"Football is in our blood at Fox and we understand that nothing beats the NFL when it comes to television that captures people's attention and defines American culture", said Peter Rice, President of 21st Century Fox.
Given that "New Fox" will be a much smaller company after the pending $52.4B deal with Disney, shelling out for rights could have a "disproportionate impact on earnings" at Fox, Nathanson wrote. Although ratings for Thursday games were down in 2017, "TNF" still had better numbers by a wide margin than any non-sports programming on either network.
The network and the league are working out an agreement on the broadcast package, Bloomberg reported. This season's broadcasts have faced ongoing viewer dissatisfaction with anthem protests by players as well as a flood of games on the schedule, something even Fox executives had previously criticized.
