Sky Sports has been awarded exclusive rights to the NFL’s Sunday night football games for two years.

Previously broadcast by Channel 4, Sky Sports will now air two early kick-offs on Sunday at 6pm and 9pm culminating with a midnight game.

In addition to this are the Monday Night football games alongside regular Thursday games.

Viewers will now be able to watch over 100 games each season on Sky Sports with additional digital and On Demand offering.

NBC’s Sunday Night Football is America’s most watched programme.

Alistair Kirkwood, managing director of NFLUK, added: “We are very excited about Sky Sports' plans for NFL coverage. The addition of Sunday Night Football this season will further deepen the outstanding partnership we have enjoyed for more than two decades and demonstrates Sky’s commitment to the sport here.

"We are looking forward to the programming and promotion of the NFL that they will be bringing to UK and Irish fans in this upcoming season and beyond.”

The first game between the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers will air on Thursday 10 September at midnight.
