NFL Network's Bornstein Says No Additional Thursday Night Games Will Be Added
Published October 28, 2013
NFL NETWORK WILL HAVE GAMES: REUTERS' Grover & Baker report Bornstein stressed that the NFL "intends to reserve some live games for its own NFL Network" even if the league decides to offer a package of Thursday night games. He said, "There is no way that this channel won't have live games. It's great content, and gives us an amazing platform to expand into other areas." He acknowledged that the league has "heard from potential bidders for a possible new package of games, but would not name them." He also "would not say how many games would be included in a possible package, but said the league is unlikely to allow two games to be played on a single Thursday night" (REUTERS, 10/28).
FIRST & 10: In N.Y., Miller & Sandomir take a look at NFL Network’s 10th anniversary under the header, “NFL Network’s 10-Year Gains: 13 Games and 72 Million Homes.” Bornstein said, “We were very clear that this wasn’t for the faint of heart. The great thing is that ownership never lost patience and gave us the time to make it happen” (N.Y. TIMES, 10/28).
