The NFL’s “Thursday Night Football” will have a new home in 2018 and for the foreseeable future, moving from CBS and NBC to Fox effective next fall. Fox will broadcast 11 Thursday night games in 2018 as part of a deal that runs through the 2022 season. The games also will be seen on NFL Network, as in the past, and the cable network solely will televise the seven Thursday night games that Fox doesn’t.
The digital rights, last held by Amazon, still are up for grabs.
Fox is reportedly paying out more than $60 million per game in this new deal, according to ESPN, which is up significantly from the $45 million that CBS and NBC paid for each game in the 2017-2018 season.
