NFL’s Patriots extend with local rights partner

WBZ-TV, a regional affiliate of US network CBS, has extended a local rights deal with the New England Patriots NFL American football franchise.

The multi-year renewal will run through to the end of the 2022 season.

WBZ-TV will broadcast all pre-season games and post-season programming, as well as the ‘Patriots All Access’, ‘Patriots GameDay’ and ‘5th Quarter’ programmes.

Patriots All Access offers fans behind-the-scenes coverage of the Patriots and features interviews with players and coaching staff.

Patriots GameDay is a live, half-hour pre-game programme that is broadcast prior to Patriots games, while 5th Quarter is shown after each Patriots game and features post-match interviews and reactions.

WBZ-TV broadcasts in the Boston area of Massachusetts in the US.
