The National Football League (NFL) has extended its domestic radio broadcast rights partnership with SiriusXM for a further five years.
The extended contract, which dates back to 2004, will see SiriusXM continue as the league’s exclusive third-party audio provider for every NFL game.
Subscribers will continue to have live access to all fixtures via Sirius’ radio and SXM App, as well as SiriusXM NFL Radio, the network’s 24/7 dedicated NFL channel. With 32 channels – one for each NFL franchise – the SXM App provides official radio broadcasts for all teams.
From the 2022 season, channels on the SXM App will also feature each team’s pregame and postgame programming.
Sirius will also provide team-oriented content for all clubs, such as coach shows and press conferences, which will be available to subscribers via the SXM App.
“SiriusXM continues to be an important part of the NFL family, providing fans access to live game audio as well as all the news and information around their favourite teams in addition to SiriusXM’s great 24/7, 365 League coverage on SiriusXM NFL Radio,” said Brian Rolapp, chief media and business officer at the NFL.
Scott Greenstein, president and chief content officer at SiriusXM, added: The popularity of the NFL, and the passion of their fans, is extraordinary. Since 2004 the NFL has been an important component of SiriusXM’s programming lineup as we deliver those fans exceptional access to all their favourite teams.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to now be expanding our relationship with the league, ensuring our listeners will continue to get comprehensive access to the NFL.”
