Broadcasting

CBS Sports, Turner Sports and NFL Network serve as the Alliance's broadcast partners for the 2019 season. The CBS Sports deal, announced at the time the league launched, had the inaugural games regionally televised over-the-air on the CBS broadcast network, will have the championship broadcast nationwide on the same network, while CBS Sports Network carries a game of the week throughout the regular season on Sunday afternoons. The Turner Sports contract includes one regular season game on February 16 and one playoff game on TNT and a Saturday-afternoon game of the week on Bleacher Report's pay-per-view live streaming service. NFL Network will carry the remainder of the league's games, two for each week, each on Saturday and Sunday nights. The Turner and NFL Network contracts were announced less than two weeks before the season began.[2]
