NEW YORK (AP) - Six television stations owned by Tribune Co. will each carry a football game previously licensed only for cable and satellite distribution through the league's NFL Network, Tribune said Tuesday.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The National Football League has tried to enhance the appeal of its own cable channel by withholding a number of live games from traditional broadcasts and reserving them for its own network.
The NFL Network is carried by the satellite broadcaster DirecTV, but the network has clashed with major cable providers, some of which are not carrying it at all or are placing its offerings in premium tiers with relatively few viewers.
The NFL reaches deals with local stations to show games on free TV.
The six games covered by Tuesday's announcement are:
- Denver vs. Cleveland, Nov. 6, KWGN, Denver.
- New York Jets vs. New England, Nov. 13, WPIX, New York.
- Oakland vs. San Diego, Dec. 4, KSWB, San Diego
- New Orleans vs. Chicago, Dec. 11, WGNO, New Orleans.
- Indianapolis vs. Jacksonville, Dec. 18, WXIN, Indianapolis.
- Baltimore vs. Dallas, Dec. 20, KDAF, Dallas-Fort Worth'
