    ESPN adds American football coverage to its autumn line-up


    LONDON - ESPN is to broadcast key American football games as part of its UK programme schedule this autumn.

    'Monday Night Football', the longest-running sports show in US history, will show an NFL game each week on ESPN, from 14 September, at 1am.

    The sports channel will also air an accompanying pre-game programme, 'Monday Night Countdown', hosted by Chris Berman.

    One of the biggest parts of the deal is internationally, where ESPN will gain the rights to televise its “MNF” game and “Monday Night Countdown” pregame show in the United Kingdom via its newly launched British cable channel, ESPN UK.

    “MNF” has not been telecast in Britain for the past several years. This deal, however, marks the first time in more than a decade that a TV network other than Sky Sports will carry live NFL programming in Britain
    In a 2003 BBC poll that asked Brits to name the "Greatest American Ever", Mr. T came in fourth, behind ML King (3rd), Abe Lincoln (2nd) and Homer Simpson (1st).

    C5,free to air, broadcast MNF up to last year. A really good show - taking the US commentators

    ESPN is subscription on cable and satellite only.
