Arena Football League Moving to CBS Sports Network 11/13/12
NEW YORK (AP)
The Arena Football League is moving to the CBS Sports Network cable channel.
The league and network said Tuesday they had agreed to a two-year deal. CBS Sports Network will broadcast 19 regular-season games in 2013 with a Saturday night package, along with two playoff games. The main CBS network will air the ArenaBowl in August.
The AFL was on NFL Network, with Friday night games, the last four years.
NFL Network is in about 25 million more homes than CBS Sports Network, though the championship game will receive a far bigger audience on CBS.
The West Texas Roughnecks open up their season April, 2013.
