Earlier this week, it was reported that NFL was seeking a 100 percent increase on TV rights from all of its network partners. This immediately led to Disney refusing to pay double the price.
Fast forward a few days later, and we now have conflicting reports on the NFL’s relationship with Disney.
According to John Ourand of Sports Business Journal, the NFL has reached a broad agreement on a new media rights deal with Disney.
This deal will result in ESPN renewing Monday Night Football and ABC returning to the Super Bowl rotation for the first time since 2006.
