In July, Major League Baseball agreed to a $6.5 billion, 10-year agreement with Fox to bring the National League, National League East and National League West together under one banner for free-to-air television.
Fox Sports will carry the MLB and MLB teams, as well as the National Basketball Association and National Hockey League, as part of the deal, with Fox also making the occasional special broadcast.
The agreement also allows Fox to add more regional sports programming to the lineup, including the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, Major Leagues and more.
“We are pleased to continue our partnership with Fox and the NFL for the long-term,” Fox Sports Chairman of Sports Entertainment Kevin Reilly said in a statement.
“The NFL will continue to be a great platform for fans and our partners to watch the game live and in-depth, with MLB games being broadcast to over 70 million homes.”ESPN has also been part of Fox Sports since its inception in 2003, with ESPN, Fox Sports 1 and the Fox Sports Go app.
