While the NFL is required to in the long run total new TV bargains that will far outperform $100 billion and maybe $200 billion in all out worth, the NHL will at that point need to manage the extras.
Right now, the NHL gets $200 million every year in its 10-year, $2 billion arrangement from NBC, which closes at the finish of this season.
With the pandemic harming NHL incomes, the alliance is relied upon to look for an expansion in incomes, beginning with its public TV bargains.
