The BBC will show three live American football games from Wembley and the Super Bowl after signing a two-year deal with the National Football League (NFL). The deal also includes a weekly highlights show, which begins in November.
The first two games, between the New York Jets and Miami Dolphins, and the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Buffalo Bills will each be shown live on BBC Two on 4 October and 24 October respectively. The third and final clash between Detroit Lions and Kansas City on 1 November will be available via the BBC Sport website and Red Button. Highlights will also be on BBC Two.
A weekly highlights package called the The Road To The Super Bowl will also be shown from the beginning of November. The show will feature action from every game in the run up to the 50th Super Bowl, which will be live on BBC TV, radio and online on 7 February 2016.
Sky Sport looked set to the sole broadcaster of NFL action this season after Channel 4 opted out of renewing its deal for coverage. However, doing so has opened the door for the BBC to get the live matches and highlights, as well as on-demand video clips through its mobile app and website.
BBC Sport Director Barbara Slater said: "NFL has a growing fan base in the UK and I'm delighted that the BBC can bring it free-to-air for our audience. We look forward to delivering all the best action and drama of American Football for the next two years on BBC TV, Radio and Online at the BBC Sport website."
