Arena League moving to CBS Sports Network

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.


CBS and CBS Sports Network are divisions of CBS Corp.
