Updated on Sunday 18 January 2015 by @TVNewsroom

The National Football League will continue its partnership with CBS to produce and televise the Thursday Night Football for the 2015 season.

CBS will broadcast the first eight Thursday Night Football games which also will be simulcast on NFL Network. NFL Network will exclusively televise eight games in the run-up to the playoffs.

The mix of games will include 14 on Thursday nights and two late-season games on Saturday.

The full slate of 16 regular-season games will be produced by CBS with its lead broadcasters and production team on all Thursday night games. The pregame, halftime and postgame shows will continue to feature NFL Network and CBS Sports hosts and analysts.

“We are pleased to extend our partnership with CBS for Thursday Night Football,” said Roger Goodell, the Commissioner of the National Football League.

“The promotion and production by CBS and NFL Network last season made Thursday night a night for NFL football. We look forward to working again next season with CBS.”

Sky Sports in the UK will also broadcast all 16 games, including the two Saturday night games.

The announcement comes of the day of the AFC and NFC Championship games. CBS will air the AFC clash between New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colt (8.05pm GMT / 3.05pm ET), while Fox airs Seattle Seahawks v Green Bay Packers for the NFC Championship (11.40pm GMT / 6.40pm ET)
