SiriusXM and the National Football League recently announced a six-year extension of their satellite broadcasting and marketing agreement.

SiriusXM, the Official Satellite Radio Partner of the NFL since 2004, will continue to feature every NFL game live nationwide from the preseason through Super Bowl LVI in 2022 as well as SiriusXM NFL Radio, SiriusXM’s 24/7 radio channel dedicated entirely to the NFL.

All NFL games are available to SiriusXM subscribers on their satellite radios.  Those subscribers with the SiriusXM All Access package – which includes satellite radio and internet listening – also get authenticated access to every NFL game via the SiriusXM app and at SiriusXM.com.

SiriusXM NFL Radio (channel 88 on satellite radios and on the SiriusXM app) continues to offer the most in-depth radio coverage of the NFL. The daily programming lineup features shows hosted by NFL experts and interviews with players, coaches and executives from around the league, plus in-depth coverage of the NFL Draft, training camps and more.

Now for the first time, SiriusXM NFL Radio programming is available to subscribers on SiriusXM On Demand, giving them access to an extensive catalogue of show episodes, interviews and more that they can listen to whenever they want.

“We are pleased to extend and expand our partnership with SiriusXM into the next decade,” said Brian Rolapp, the NFL’s executive vice president, Media. “SiriusXM has been a valuable partner and provides our fans with tremendous content throughout the year and on gameday.”

“For more than a decade, SiriusXM and the NFL have worked together to provide our subscribers with extraordinary access to the league, giving them the ability to hear every game from anywhere across the country, plus the best, most in-depth 24/7 NFL talk programming on radio,” said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM’s President and Chief Content Officer. “The fans’ appetite for NFL content continues to grow.  We’re pleased it will remain an important part of our lineup for years to come, and we look forward to giving our subscribers the coverage they love on their radios, phones and mobile devices, and now also On Demand.”

As the league’s official satellite radio partner, SiriusXM will continue to have rights to use the NFL ‘shield’ logo and collective NFL team trademarks. For more information and a schedule of NFL games on SiriusXM, visit http://www.SiriusXM.com/NFL.
