NFL will rack in 6.45 billion next year alone for TV rights
The NFL announced Wednesday that the league and DirecTV have reached an agreement on a new deal that, according to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, is worth $1.5 billion per year for the next eight years.
That means the latest contract is worth $8 billion more to the NFL (over four additional years) than its last deal with DirecTV.
@darrenrovell: $6,450,000,000: Revenue NFL will pull in for television rights deals next year alone.
That’s a lot of money for company that some feel will fold.
