Every Thursday, Sunday and Monday night NFL Game to Air on ESPN
ESPN, the long-standing home of NFL in Australia, announces that every Thursday night, Sunday night and Monday night regular season contest will be broadcast live and exclusive starting September 8th. ESPN will also be televising every 2018 Playoff match, for a total of up to 64 live games.
There is no bigger stage in NFL than Monday Night Football and ESPN will bring Aussies every minute of the action live. ESPN will provide Australian NFL fans with the most in depth coverage and expert analysis, both on television and digitally on their website – ESPN.com. Add to that NFL Gamecast, NFL RedZone and a “Fan Only” forum, ESPN has this year’s NFL action covered.
“We’re very excited to announce that we’ll be bringing fans up to 64 LIVE games this season as well as NFL RedZone each week, and unparalleled array of ‘game around the game’ programming,” Haydn Arndt, ESPN’s General Manager AUS/NZ said.
Here’s a rundown of what NFL fans are in for:
NFL RedZone: Airing LIVE on ESPN2 each Monday, NFL Red Zone whips around every NFL game being played on Sunday afternoons in the US delivering the touchdowns and most exciting moments as they happen and in high definition. When a team goes inside the 20-yard line, NFL RedZone takes fans there. It keeps fans up-to-date in real time, switching from game to game with live look-ins, highlights and a chance to see key plays.
Full Game Replays: ESPN on Foxtel will also be showing replays of their Live offerings that same evening or shortly thereafter, a convenient option for those who are forced to miss the morning action.
Moreover, ESPN’s NFL coverage throughout the season will include-
Thursday Night Football: Every Thursday Night Football game Live, to air Friday morning in Australia, for a total of sixteen must see matches, plus two more on Thanksgiving Day.
Sunday Night Football: Every Sunday Night Football game televised Live, to air Monday morning in Australia, for a total of seventeen key contests. (Includes two Sunday fixtures during week 15).
Monday Night Football: Each and every game of the NFL’s flagship event broadcast Live, to air Tuesday morning (AUS), for a total of seventeen marquee match-ups not available on Free to Air NFL in Australia. (Includes two Monday Night fixtures week 1)
Additional Live games to include one contest held on the Thanksgiving Holiday in the US (Friday AU), two exciting Christmas match-ups that fall on Boxing Day in Australia, every NFL Playoff game (10 total), plus one of the world’s biggest sporting events, Super Bowl 52 (February 4, 2018). So while you can’t watch Thursday or Monday night NFL on Free to Air, you may wish to review Foxtel Play‘s Free trial offer with no lock-in contract, which means you can discontinue your service at anytime.
