CBS Sports Network extends rights to Army football

US pay-television broadcaster CBS Sports Network has agreed a five-year rights extension with the Army Athletic Association for the body’s college American football games.

The agreement renews CBS Sports Network's rights for coverage of every Army home football game and select neutral site games in which Army is the home team. The new contract begins with the 2015 season, continuing through 2019.

The partnership provides that a majority of Army home football games will be played on Saturday afternoons beginning at noon. Additionally, a live web stream of all Army's home broadcasts will be made available free of charge to US military personnel around the world.

CBS Sports Network began televising Army home football games in 2009 and entered a five-year partnership in 2010. In addition, CBS annually broadcasts the Army-Navy Game. The most recent edition of the game saw the Navy Midshipmen defeat the Army Black Knights 17-10 on December 13 at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.
