The SportsXchange

Notre Dame and NBC announced they have renewed their football media rights deal for 10 additional years, with the agreement now running through 2025.

"Coming off one of Notre Dame's best and most dramatic seasons in decades, we could not be more proud to extend this historic partnership, which continues to be one of the most innovative in sports-media history," said NBC Sports Group chairman Mark Lazarus. "We are particularly excited that this extension offers enhanced rights that allow us to bring Notre Dame Football to fans on more platforms than ever before."

NBC Sports Digital has been providing live streams of Notre Dame home football games since 2009.

The partnership began in 1991, and Notre Dame said nearly $80 million in aid for approximately 6,300 undergraduate students has been generated by revenue from the contract.

In the extension, the NBC Sports Group retains multi-platform rights to at least seven home games per season. Some games could air on NBC Sports Network.

"In addition to the national broadcast of our home football games, this longtime and valued collaboration with NBC has made a Notre Dame education possible to literally thousands of students," Notre Dame's president, Rev. John I. Jenkins, said. "We are delighted to extend our partnership to bring Irish football to our fans, to continue to help support financial aid, and to tell the Notre Dame story."
