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.

Channel 4, who first brought American football to UK TV in 1982, will begin its coverage on Sunday when the Denver Broncos host the Indianapolis Colts. Super Bowl XLIX will be broadcast live from Glendale, near Phoenix in Arizona, with last year’s season showpiece watched by more than one million viewers.

Live NFL on Channel 4

Aug 312013

Channel 4 is to become the new terrestrial television home of the NFL and Super Bowl as part of a new two-year deal with the National Football League.

The deal sees Channel 4 become the NFL’s exclusive free-to-air TV partner in the UK.

Channel 4 will also feature live coverage of the NFL’s annual games at Wembley Stadium – beginning with the two games scheduled in 2013 – and the Superbowl, previously shown by the BBC.

Channel 4 will air:

Super Bowl live: The 2013/4 Super Bowl XLVIII will be played in New York/New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium on Sunday February 2.

NFL International Series games live: The NFL will stage two games at Wembley in 2013: Pittsburgh Steelers at Minnesota Vikings (September 29) and San Francisco 49ers at Jacksonville Jaguars (October 27).

Sunday Night Football live: The NFL’s biggest game of the week, which has been aired on Channel 4 over the past three seasons, kicking off at 1:30 a.m. The new season begins on Sunday September 8.

Channel 4 was the first UK station to feature regular NFL coverage when it began its ‘American Football’ programme after its launch in November 1982. The station’s coverage evolved into a mix of live games, highlights and magazines shows and continued until January 1998.

Channel 4’s NFL coverage will kick off on Sunday September 8 with a traditional NFC East division rivalry as the Dallas Cowboys host the New York Giants. The London-bound 49ers, Super Bowl runners-up last season, feature in Week 2 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Sky Sports will continue to broadcast the Thursday night game, and the two Sunday afternoon/evening games, as well as the Super Bowl.
