Fox sports and Channel 9 secure NRL TV rights

The Australian Rugby League Commission says it hopes the new broadcast rights will be welcomed by all NRL clubs and fans across the country.

The $1.025 billion deal, sees the Nine Network and Fox Sports secure the NRL television rights for the next five years.

Chairman of the Commission, John Grant has outlined the benefits of the agreement this morning at a press conference, saying the scheduling will change for the season, with all games up to round 20 scheduled prior to round 1.

The structure of the games remains the same, with Channel 9 retaining 3 live games, while Fox Sports remains the home of NRL.

The New Zealand broadcast rights, along with the internet and mobile rights are yet to be determined.
