Channel 4 increases NFL output

Channel 4 will broadcast 21 live NFL matches during the 2014-15 season, the largest number of games ever shown on free-to-air television in the UK over the course of one campaign.

The broadcaster, entering its second year of a two-season contract with the NFL, will show all three matches played at Wembley, 17 other regular-season games and February’s Super Bowl XLIX.

Channel 4 commissioning editor for sport, Jamie Aitchison, commented: “NFL fans in the UK are spoilt for choice this season on Channel 4; the Wembley games feature the likes of the Dallas Cowboys and the Miami Dolphins, two of the biggest names in the sport and icons from our coverage back in the 80s. We look forward to bringing the sport into more homes than ever.”
