How do you separate watching the Bills and not drinking the NFL koolaid? Like it or not, watching the Bills is sipping from that cup.

Life is not black or white but shades of grey... I don’t pay to watch...

-Disney biggest winner. ABC getting SB and other games = retransmission fee hikes.  Also ESPN had smallest % increase. 

- CBS, NBC, and now Fox have all walked away from TNF. Not sure that will ever come back to broadcast TV.

- Mostly status quo except more money

will TNF still be on Prime Video too?

 

 

 

Nevermind, last paragraph of the article:

 

”The biggest change will be with “TNF,” which will move from Fox to Amazon Prime and NFL Network. It is unclear what Amazon would be paying.”

It’s a lot more money it sounds like. 30% increase from Disney, and 2x from the networks for Sunday games. It seems the only thing left up in the air is the value of the Amazon deal and what happens with any sort of subscription, ie. Sunday Ticket. 
 

There shouldn’t be any issue with the cap making a large jump.

The biggest question is who will broadcast the SB for ABC/ESPN. Steve Levy? Beth Mowins? Tessitore? Maybe Fowler and Herbie?

 

Enquiring minds want to know?

Probably a LOT to get in on it...they had a few games shown via Prime during the year this year but I am assuming they paid a pretty penny.

Deal reached with Disney.  ABC will carry a Super Bowl.  Amazon Prime now will carry TNF games instead of Fox.  TNF still broadcast on NFL Network.

 

 

 

Except the NFL is saying no deal has been reached.  Sounds like Disney announced something a little too early or some details still to be worked out, but likely close

 

For those who have access to The Athletic good article there today too about broadcast rights and  more details.

 

This article does clear up one thing that's been discussed on prior posts.  There were some posts stating this is all bogus, there are no new TV deals coming as the NFL just signed new deals with Fox and CBS so nothing is being announced.  This article explains while that is true, this deal now spells out the rights and $$ for once those existing deals run out.  Basically it's a contract extension so everyone will know what the amounts coming in for close to the next 10 years.  The only actual new $$ coming will be the ESPN deal as that expires very soon.

 

The other thing it addresses is all the talk here about how the bulk will be going to a streaming package, because this is a long term deal, likely the opposite is true, the NFL has no plans for any expanded streaming with the exception of Thursday night package.

 

Sunday Ticket may also go to streaming, but may be some type of split transmission deal and that is the one rights package that likely could go down in value as DTV way over paid for it as it was a "loss leader " to them to generate DTV subs.  To a new player in town, it will become their bread and butter so need to make money on it.

The NFL is looking at several possible ways to expand access to our fans across as many entertainment platforms as possible.

Stealing is black and white. I bet if it was your money then you'd be bitching up a storm. 

 

But gouging people is cool. I'd guess you are cool with Texas charging people 20K for electricity over a few days also.

Two different scenarios.  You pay for entertainment one way or another. Do you work for free?
