LONDON (AP) - The BBC will offer live television coverage of the Oct. 26 regular-season game between the San Diego Chargers and the New Orleans Saints at Wembley Stadium.
Last year's live telecast of the first NFL regular-season game played outside North America, between the New York Giants and the Miami Dolphins, was only on Sky Sports - a satellite subscription channel.
The Chargers-Saints game will start on one of the BBC's main channels, BBC Two, and switch after two hours to BBC Three, a digital channel with lower audience reach. BBC Two also will broadcast late-night highlights.
The first batch of 40,000 tickets for the Chargers-Saints game sold out in 90 minutes last month. The NFL has committed to playing at least one game in Britain over each of the next three seasons.
