On October 15, 2012, NASCAR and Fox Sports Media Group (FSMG) announced a new eight-year contract worth $2.4 billion, a 30% increase over the previous contract.  On July 23, 2013, NASCAR and NBC Sports Group announced a new 10-year, $4.4 billion contract.    Ten days later, on August 1, 2013, NASCAR and Fox renewed their contracts by paying an additional $1.4 billion to complete NASCAR`s new TV package by the 2024 season.   On September 19, 2012, The Sports Business Daily reported that Major League Baseball would agree to split eight-year television contracts with Fox Sports and Turner Sports by the 2021 season. Fox would pay about $4 billion (nearly $500 million a year) over eight years, while Turner would pay about $2.8 billion (more than $300 million a year) over eight years. Under the new contracts, Fox and Major League Baseball on TBS coverage would be roughly the same as in the 2007-2013 contract, with the exception of Fox and TBS Splitting Division Series reports, which TBS broadcast exclusively in 2007. More importantly, fox would wear some of the games (like the Saturday afternoon game of the week) on its all-sports channel Fox Sports 1. Sources also said it was possible that Fox could sell a few Division Series games to MLB Network, which happened in the end. ESPN has become a new channel in 2018. The network has unveiled plans to show more than 100 hours of F1 programming during their first season back in the sport. These include plans to show each training and qualification session in any capacity.
The race broadcasts will be broadcast on ESPN and ESPN2, with plans to broadcast live coverage of the Canadian GP, the American Grand Prix and Mexico live on ABC, while showing the Monaco Grand Prix on the band`s lag.  On March 1 of the same year, they announced the launch of their own over-the-top media service, F1 TV Pro, which features live and on-demand racing.  Bowl games after the season, including the college football playoffs, are currently all televised, most of them by ESPN networks.  The television rights for the six CFP-Bowls and the National Championship belong to ESPN at least until the 2025 season.  ESPN then secured 12-year agreements to retain the Rose Bowl, Orange Bowl and Sugar Bowl rights after the dissolution of the Bowl Championship Series.  In November, ESPN was awarded a 12-year contract to broadcast the remaining three bowls, the championship game, as well as shoulder programming as ranking shows; In total, the contract is estimated at approximately $470 million per year, or nearly $5.7 billion for the duration of the contract.  Agreements on web broadcasting should contain similar elements. The new incarnation of the XFL has split its broadcast rights between ESPN on ABC/ESPN and Fox Sports on a three-year contract. XFL games have been split between ABC, Fox, ESPN and Fox Sports 1 (with a small number of games scheduled for ESPN2 and Fox Sports 2). ESPN is expected to broadcast the championship game.
The Wall Street Journal reported insider sources that neither the channels nor the league prepayed, but that the XFL sold the sponsorship inventory in the game.
