Fox Sports Latin America renews NFL rights deal

Pay-television broadcaster Fox Sports Latin America has extended a rights deal for the NFL American football league.

The agreement will run for four seasons, from 2016-17 to 2019-20.

Fox Sports Latin America will broadcast live coverage of over 100 games during the course of the deal, including matches featured in the Thursday Night Football package and the Super Bowl end-of-season showpiece event.

The deal will also include coverage of Sunday afternoon regular-season games, during which Fox Sports Latin America will broadcast highlights and multi-game coverage of other matches taking place at the same time.

Fox Sports Latin America will also become the first pay-television operator to broadcast live all three Thanksgiving Day games as a triple-header.

Coverage of the 2016 regular-season will begin on September 11.
