NFL Media Rights Deals For '07 Season

The NFL is entering the second year of its most recent TV deals, and has also renewed some previous one-year deals for the '07 season.  The NFL and Yahoo agreed to a one-year renewal for NFL Game Pass, a service that allows football fans in Europe, Asia, South America, Australia and Africa to watch regular-season games live on the Web.  The NFL and iTunes also agreed to a one-year deal whereby fans will have access to '07 regular-season highlights packages, NFL GameDay from NFL Network and historical Super Bowl videos on iTunes, as well as have access to NFL Replay, which replays the weekend's five best games on NFL Network.  Additionally, the NFL is near a deal with Sling Media to become the latest partner for the Clip+Sling video-sharing service, according to well-placed industry sources.  The following presents NFL media deals going into the '07 regular season (THE DAILY).
