NFL Network es un canal de televisión por suscripción estadounidense propiedad de la National Football League, la liga estadounidense de fútbol americano. Fue lanzado el 4 de noviembre de 2003, ocho meses después de que los dueños de los 32 equipos de la liga votaran unánimemente por su formación. La liga invirtió $100 USD millones para empezar las operaciones del canal.
NFL Films produce comerciales, programas de televisión y realiza filmes para la NFL por lo que es el proveedor clave de la programación de NFL Network, ya que cuenta con más de 4,000 horas de material disponible en su librería. Como consecuencia el canal funciona esencialmente como un comercial de 24 horas para la NFL.
También iniciando en la temporada 2006, el canal empezó a transmitir ocho juegos de temporada regular de la NFL en horario estelar. Como la liga transmite sus propios juegos, ha sido blanco de críticas. El canal también cubre el Draft de la NFL.
Los estudios de NFL Network están en Culver City, California cerca de Los Ángeles.
NFL Network (occasionally abbreviated on-air as NFLN) is an American sports-oriented pay television network that is owned by the National Football League (NFL) and is part of NFL Media, which also includes NFL.com, NFL Films, NFL Mobile, NFL Now and NFL RedZone. Dedicated to American football, the network features game telecasts from the NFL, as well as NFL-related content including analysis programs, specials and documentaries. The network is headquartered in the Los Angeles suburb of Culver City, California, and broadcasts its worldwide feed from Encompass Digital Media (formally Crawford Communications) in Atlanta, Georgia. The NFL Media Campus, as well as the network's headquarters, is scheduled to relocate to Inglewood, California by summer of 2021, where a new office building and studio will be located next to SoFi Stadium.
As of February 2015, NFL Network is available to approximately 71,867,000 pay television households in the United States (totaling 61.7% of U.S. households with at least one television set).
NFL Network was launched on November 4, 2003, only eight months after the owners of the league's 32 teams voted unanimously to approve its formation. The league invested $100 million to fund the network's operations. NFL Films, which produces commercials, television programs, and feature films for the NFL, is a key supplier of NFL Network's programming, with more than 4,000 hours of footage available in its library. As a result, much of the network's highlights and recaps feature NFL Films' trademark style of slow-motion game action, sounds of the game, and sideline conversations between players and/or team staff.
Beginning with the 2006 season, the network began to broadcast eight regular-season NFL games during Thursday prime time, branded as Thursday Night Football. In addition to live games, the network has provided coverage of the NFL Draft since 2006; its coverage competes with that provided by ESPN and ESPN2. It was simulcast in a co-production with Fox Sports for the 2018 edition, though this was only a one-year agreement as exclusive over-the-air broadcast rights moved to ABC for the 2019 edition, which saw ESPN produce a different broadcast for 'casual' fans.
