Here's a copy of a C4 response to a viewer enquiry received around 60 mins ago

Channel 4 does not hold the rights to broadcast this NFL this year. This year it will be broadcast by the BBC.

Hmm I wonder if NFLuk tried to split the FTA coverage up again and give the Super Bowl (and Wembley games?) back to the BBC which Channel 4 then said 'no Super Bowl? then no SNF & highlights' to. Or maybe the BBC were offering to show the Wembley games live on BBC 2 as they all have early kick offs now?

Seems strange Channel 4 know where it's going. You'd think they'd just end negotiations and not care who else took it.

Isn't the Sky deal up for renewal next year?

Not if C4 wanted the package and were just outbid by BBC, Then I would assume that they would know what the outcome was.

Fair comment, the BBC may just see the potential that the growth of the sport in this country has and got heavy handed with the bidding process.

I have missed the big red letters this summer and the 9000 pages on TV rights makes the off season fly by. Another thing how have I gone from Rookie to Pro overnight?

iainbg, welcome to the pros!!
I know I'm not on this forum every day of the week, but am I missing something here? Am I right in thinking that the BBC have the NFL rights for free-to-air?
The BBC??
The British Broadcasting Corporation??? (Or "Bloated", according to the mouth-foaming right-wing bunch of morons employed by The Sun and The Daily Mail, under the delusional pretention of calling them "journalists")

What we know for sure.

Channel 4 have confirmed (after Vernan Kay tweeted about it) that they will not have any NFL on their channel this season.

When contacting Channel 4 they have stated that the BBC have the rights. No one officially has confirmed that from the Beeb.

There is a very good chance that we will get a big announcement in the next couple of days.

Very strange how there is so much chopping and changing of coverage over the years and a shame to see Channel 4 miss it as they'd done a very good job. The writing was on the wall as the highlights programme slipped to later and later in the schedule.
