Telemundo Deportes announced seven exclusive Spanish-language live NFL game telecasts on Universo beginning this Thursday, November 9 with Seahawks at Cardinals on Thursday Night Football presented by Bud Light, and culminating with Super Bowl LII live on Universo on Sunday, February 4, 2018, from U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
This presentation marks the fourth consecutive season Universo (previously mun2) will televise NFL games and the second consecutive NBC Super Bowl with the exclusive offering (Super Bowl XLIX in 2015). Prior to Super Bowl LII, Universo will air three of NBC’s Thursday Night Football games, NBC’s annual Thanksgiving night game, and NBC’s two NFL Playoff games. Coverage begins this Thursday, November 9 when the Arizona Cardinals host the Seattle Seahawks, live at 8 p.m. ET.
Universo’s telecasts will also be streamed live via the Telemundo Deportes En Vivo app and TelemundoDeportes.com. Telemundo digital platforms will also stream additional games in Spanish, including all of NBC’s remaining Thursday Night Football and Sunday Night Football games, featuring the SAP offering. Streaming will be available on desktops, tablets and connected TVs.
"We are thrilled to again present NFL regular-season and playoff games, including the Super Bowl, on Universo to the growing Hispanic football audience. Combined with the FIFA World Cup next year, the Spanish-language telecast of these high-profile NFL games, including the Super Bowl, reinforces Telemundo Deportes' commitment to bringing the top global sports events in Spanish-language television and digital platforms to our diverse sports audience,” said Ray Warren, president of Telemundo Deportes.
The November 9 game kicks off Universo’s four consecutive Thursdays with primetime NFL games, and is followed by Tennessee Titans-Pittsburgh Steelers on Nov. 16; the New York Giants visiting the Washington Redskins on Thanksgiving night, and the Dallas Cowboys hosting Washington on Nov. 30. Universo coverage will continue with two NFL Playoff games in January and Super Bowl LII.
