Business of NFL - Broadcasters

The largest annual deal that the NFL has in place is with DirecTV, worth $1.5 billion annually across an eight-year period. DirecTV will offer fans the chance to watch live Sunday afternoon games outside local markets.
CBS, ESPN, FOX, and NBC pretty much ran the entire NFL media landscape in 2022, as all regional deals signed have been linked to one of these four networks. These deals ensure fair access to the club fans to view live games in home markets typically pre-determined close to the franchise’s home venue. This enables fans to watch their team’s games even if the national broadcaster has not picked up the rights or they are unable to attend the game in person.
