Fox Sports has announced it will launch NFL Network in 2017, following the launch of NFL Redzone in 2017.
The move comes just a week after Fox announced that the network would move to the next generation of consoles in 2018, as it continues to make a name for itself as a streaming platform and live sports broadcaster.
The NFL Network will launch with a lineup of all the league’s games and all the players and teams on the field for the 2017-2018 season.
NFL RedZone will debut in 2018.
The network will include a lineup in-depth coverage of the games, including behind-the-scenes interviews, in-game video, and exclusive footage of the action.
NFL Network is expected to debut in mid-2018.
The news comes as the NFL prepares to announce its 2017-19 slate of regular season games.
It will also include a slate of playoff games, the league says, which will include Super Bowl LI, Super Bowl XLIX, and Super Bowl XXXVII.
The launch of Fox Sports’ NFL Network comes just days after the league announced it was extending its contract with Fox to the end of 2021.
Fox has not announced when the NFL will renew its contract, but it has said that it will be open to the idea of expanding the contract to the 2024-25 season.
Fox has long been a leader in live sports, with its network, Fox Sports 1, launching in 1998 and its Fox Sports Go streaming service launching in 2010.
