Decline in ​NFL Popularity ​Expected to Cost TV Networks $500​-Million this Season

November 28, 2017 Daily Wire 0

P​rotests against the National Anthem by NFL players have contributed to the organization’s loss of one-million viewers compared to 2016. According to OKTC’s Clay Travis, the four networks that carry the NFL (CBS, ESPN, Fox,​ and NBC)​ are on pace to lose $500 million this season compared to last year due to the ratings slide. The top reason for the loss is “cord-cutting” which is cancelling subscriptions to multi-channel television services on cable.
