ESPN+ is available for $4.99 a month.
The hour show will stream live on ESPN+ on Sundays at 7:30 p.m ET during the 2019 season. It will be updated with highlights from Sunday and Monday night games. NFL Primetime will be available on-demand until Wednesday night
Chris Berman said in a statement,” ESPN just celebrated its 40tyh birthday and the NFL is celebrating its 100th season. What better way to commemorate both occasions than by bringing back NFL Primetime, now on ESPN+. I hope everyone is as excited as we are.”
Berman and Jackson started NFL Primetime in 1987, and it went on to 2005. The two of them bought excitement to NFL highlights for the viewers. Berman bought excellent deliver and nicknames, Jackson bought fast-paced analysis.
In 2006 the original primetime was redone, NBC gained the rights to extended Sunday night highlights, it focused more on analysis and game breakdowns more than highlights. Berman and Jackson moved on to Sportscenter segment called “The Blitz” on Sunday nights. After that Berman and Jackson would occasionally appear on ESPN for highlights
I am excited for this as a kid watching football; i could night wait to watch NFL Primetime on Sunday nights after the NFL games. There was no NFL highlight show like it. It will be great to see it back on the air, and i will be watching faithfully as i did when i was a kid. Im sure a lot of other people will tune as well.
