NFL considers Sunday-afternoon rights reshuffle – report

The NFL American football league, together with some of its US rights partners, is considering reworking its Sunday-afternoon packages, according to Variety.

The website, citing two people familiar with the matter, reported that the CBS and Fox networks are weighing up a potential shake-up of their packages.

Variety added that the two networks may end up broadcasting packages that include both NFC and AFC fixtures. Currently, the NFC is aired on Fox and the AFC is shown by CBS.

One of Variety’s sources stressed that the talks are “extremely preliminary” and may not come to fruition.

Fox, CBS and NBC hold rights to NFL’s Sunday packages until 2022. ESPN has rights to Monday Night Football until 2021.
