Every year, CBS, NBC and Fox pay about $3.1 billion for the rights to broadcast Sunday NFL games, up from $1.94 billion under the previous contract. Meanwhile, the ESPN weekly broadcasts of Monday Night Football set Disney back $1.9 billion per year, up from $1.1 billion paid out in the previous contract. And despite the fact that overall viewership has decreased since 2016, the fees for the rights are nonetheless anticipated to surge, particularly as the rest of the TV landscape collapses beneath its feet.
