Fox Sports awarded NFL Thursday Night Football package from 2018-2022 season

The NFL today announced an agreement with Fox Sports to broadcast the next five seasons of Thursday Night Football beginning with the 2018 season.

This is the first time FOX will broadcast TNF having aired exclusively on NFL Network from 2006, on CBS from 2014 and on CBS and NBC for the 2016-17 season.

“This agreement is the culmination of over 10 years of strategic growth around Thursday Night Football, a period during which this property has grown from a handful of late season games on NFL Network to a full season of games and one of the most popular shows on broadcast television with additional distribution via cable and digital channels,” said Roger Goodell, NFL Commissioner.

“As one of the leaders in sports television and a recognized innovator of NFL game broadcasts for many years, we’re excited to be extending our partnership with FOX Sports, one of our most trusted and valued partners, to include Thursday Night Football.”

The agreement awards FOX with a five year deal that includes 11 games between weeks 4-15 (excluding Thanksgiving night) to be broadcast on FOX, simulcast via NFL Network, and distributed in Spanish on FOX Deportes.

In addition, NFL Network will exclusively televise seven games next season, with FOX producing the full slate of 18 games.
