NRL announces new broadcast deal with Nine, Foxtel

SYDNEY, 30 MAY 2020 (NRL) – The ARLC has agreed to new broadcast deals with Channel Nine through to 2022 and Foxtel through to the 2027 season.

The new deal extends Foxtel’s for a further five years, with the previous rights agreement having covered the five-year period of 2018-2022.

“I want to thank Foxtel CEO Patrick Delany and Nine CEO Hugh Marks for reaching an outcome that puts the fans and the game’s future first,” ARLC Chairman Peter V’landys said.

“Our negotiations were tough but always in a spirit of goodwill and shared ambitions for the betterment of rugby league. We could not have reached our May 28 restart ambitions without the teamwork and collaboration of our partners.”

Foxtel will continue to broadcast all eight games a week this season, with Nine televising three matches per round plus exclusive coverage of the grand final on October 25 plus the State of Origin series in November.
