NFL Sunday Night Football games to be shown live on Sky Sports
Last Updated: 26/08/15 3:30pm
Sky Sports will be showing NFL's Sunday Night Football live for the next two years, bringing viewers an additional game a week and taking the schedule to more than 100 live matches a season.
NFL fans with Sky Sports can enjoy more coverage than ever before across TV, online, mobile and tablet devices with at least five games a week across the regular season, every play-off clash, the Super Bowl and the Pro Bowl.
Also new for this season is Monday Night Football, which alongside Thursday and Sunday games, provides viewers with more matches during the regular season. Sky Sports will also be showing exclusively live pre-season coverage for the first time in seven years, as New Orleans Saints host the Houston Texans on Sunday 30 August.
There will be all the drama and scores from around the NFL each Sunday of the regular season from RedZone, available via the red button and Sky Sports Xtra, which is available to customers through skysports.com and the Sky Sports iPad app.
Sunday Night Football is America's most watched programme and from week five of the season, the NFL's flexible scheduling ensures that a key match-up with play-off implications is featured. In the final six weeks of the regular season Sunday Night Football will also be simulcast live on Sky One. Commentary comes from NBC's award-winning pairing of Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth.
