SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Notre Dame and NBC announced Saturday that they have agreed to extend their media rights agreement, keeping Fighting Irish Football on the network through the 2029 season.
NBC has been the home of Notre Dame home football games since 1991. Its current deal was set to expire after the 2024 season.
The current deal with NBC pays Notre Dame about $22 million a year. Financial terms of the new deal were not disclosed.
“We are thrilled to continue our historic collaboration with our partners at NBC Sports,” said Notre Dame Athletic Director Jack Swarbrick. “In the next generation of this partnership, we will collaborate to offer our fans even more Notre Dame content across a variety of NBCUniversal distribution channels while continuing to put our student-athletes and their stories at the center of our messaging.” .
The new deal will allow certain football games to be broadcast exclusively on Peacock, NBC’s subscription streaming service. Peacock has broadcast at least one Notre Dame football game since 2021.
Peacock also broadcasts the entire Notre Dame hockey schedule in 2023-24.
