NFL Thursday Night Football to air on CBS and NBC from 2016

NFL’s ‘Thursday Night Football’ will air on both CBS and NBC from next season.

The NFL today announced that it has agreed a two-year deal with the networks. CBS had broadcast games in partnership with NFL Network the past two seasons.

Both CBS and NBC will each air five Thursday matchups in 2016 and 2017, increasing the number of games on traditional broadcast TV from eight to 10 per season. Those will again be simulcast on the NFL Network.

NFL Network will still televise eight games exclusively, which will include late-season Saturday game and other to-be-determined games.

All eighteen TNF games will air on Sky Sports in the UK.
