NFL Announces New Flex Option For Monday Night Football In New TV Deal

The NFL has announced a new television deal on Thursday, which keeps games on ESPN/ABC, FOX, CBS, NBC, Amazon Prime and NFL Network through 2033 season.

The agreement keeps Sunday afternoon games on CBS and Fox, Sunday night games on NBC and Monday night games on ESPN with some games also airing on ABC.

Some of the new changes in the TV deal include ESPN/ABC picking up two Super Bowls during the deal starting in 2026. In addition, there will be three Monday night doubleheaders — with games on ESPN, followed by a game on ABC. There will also be a Saturday doubleheader during the season’s final weekend and one Sunday morning game streaming nationally on ESPN+.

The biggest changes include ESPN’s Monday Night Football having the option of flexing games, starting with Week 12 of the season.

For the first time, Amazon will be the exclusive home for Thursday night games, which will also be on over-the-air channels in the competing teams’ home markets. NFL Network will also air select games.

More access to football is a good thing!
