Give that the season kicks off in a little over 5 weeks, I find this a bit strange if they have got the FTA rights.
It is becoming an annual thing that FTA rights are announced within a fortnight (or even later) of the season kicking off, regardless of what channel ultimately gets it. I'm starting to think that this is intentional at the request of Sky, so that NFL fans don't hold off on signing up for the different Sky Sports channels required to watch it.

I imagine the NFL don't mind either. Cant hurt Gamepass subs if they drag it out.

True, but it doesn't half get annoying waiting for the announcement.

There's been no announcement and we're only five weeks away! There's only one thing for it...

PANIC!

It's ok I think it's just that Statto00 is missing needing to break out the big red letters every few hours.
