Which NFL teams are getting most new TV deals?
The NFL has the largest share of television deals in the sports world, but the league has also gotten more than half the new deals it has signed since 2011.
According to a new study from comScore, which tracks the deals made to broadcast and cable networks, the league is receiving a whopping $1.35 billion in television deals this year.
The study says that the average TV deal for the NFL is now at $4.2 billion per season, up from $3.8 billion per year in 2011.
The total for all sports leagues is $1,062.2 million.
The data was obtained through comScore’s SportsData.com, which is owned by Comcast and ESPN.
The most recent TV deal made by the league was in 2017, when the NFL agreed to a deal with DirecTV worth $400 million a year.
“It’s great for the league and it’s great to see the number of deals increase,” said Jason Levien, a sports business analyst at comScore.
“It’s a testament to the value of the league to be able to bring those deals forward and get more done in the coming years.”
The NFL’s biggest TV deal has been with DirenTV, which also owns NFL Network.
The league signed a five-year deal worth $1 billion last year, but it has also had to negotiate several deals with cable companies.
The deals have been lucrative for the broadcast networks, which are making big bucks for their programming.
The NFL also has had a deal signed with Time Warner Cable, which provides access to the NFL Network and NFL RedZone.
The new deals are the most for any sports league in the last decade.
The average cable contract for the Super Bowl alone is $5.4 million.
ComScore’s study said the average cable deal for NFL games now is at $1 million a game, up $150 million from last year.
It also says the average television deal for all the NFL games is $2.4 billion per league, up nearly $2 billion from last season.
