NFL's 'Thursday Night Football' has found a new home on Fox

FOX obtains rights to 11 NFL Thursday Night Football games

Fox reportedly near deal to win broadcast rights to Thursday Night Football

Thursday Night Football is reportedly moving to Fox in 2018, according to John Ourand of Sports Business Journal.

The deal will give Fox Sports an additional 11 games per season, with the games running from week 4 to week 15. (This excludes the Thanksgiving night game, which will still air on NBC). Fox already airs Sunday NFC games. As Ourand said in his tweet, Amazon ran the digital package past year, but those rights are still undetermined for 2018. Those games will be simulcast on NFL Network and a digital partner still to be named.

"This agreement is the culmination of over 10 years of strategic growth around 'Thursday Night Football, ' a period during which this property has grown from a handful of late season games on NFL Network to a full season of games", Roger Goodell said in a statement. Also of note is that FOX's top National Football League broadcasting team of Joe Buck and Troy Aikman will not be calling the games, which is a change from the National Football League previously requiring CBS and NBC to use their top duos for the broadcasts. The WSJ reports that an announcement could be made as early as Wednesday.

The announcement of the deal comes less than two months after 21st Century Fox's announcement of a planned sale of assets to Walt Disney Co. for $52.4 billion, including its regional sports networks, cable channels FX and National Geographic, movie and TV studio, and global assets.

Despite the comparatively good TV ratings, the Thursday night games have been criticized from all sides. The addition of a top-tier sports rights package also suggests that Fox is prepared to depend far less on general-entertainment programming if and when its $52.4 billion sale of studio and cable network assets to Walt Disney Co. wraps. Amazon paid $50 million this past season to stream the games on Amazon Prime, up from the $10 million Twitter paid in 2016.
