The BBC will broadcast two matches from the National Football League (NFL) tonight, as part of a new TV rights deal.
The BBC will broadcast Monday night games, the International Series game from Wembley, Play-off highlights and the Super Bowl in 2013.
The season kicks off with a double-header tonight, with the Cincinnati Bengals travelling to the Baltimore Ravens – kick-off 12am UK time – followed by the San Diego Chargers facing the Oakland Raiders – kick-off 3.15am.
Viewers can access the coverage by pressing the red button on their remote from any BBC channel or via the BBC Sports website at www.bbc.co.uk/sport.
“We look forward to bringing Monday Night Football to our audience, who this summer have shown a great appetite for sport content via our Online and Red Button streams,” said Barbara Slater, the BBC’s director of sport.
“We’re delighted that our relationship with the NFL continues to grow and we look forward to a great season.”
