NFL Reaches TV Deal With Mexican Networks
NEW YORK (AP) -- The NFL has struck deals with two Mexican television networks to televise its games for the next three seasons.
The contracts call for the networks Televisa and TV Azteca to carry NFL games for the 2004, 2005 and 2006 seasons, the league said in a statement Thursday.
The networks, which each will carry 23 games, also will televise the next two Super Bowls.
Televisa will air the Sept. 9 season-opener between Indianapolis and defending Super Bowl champion New England on its Galavision network. Galavision also will carry 16 Monday night games, the Thanksgiving Day game between Chicago and Dalals and five NFC playoff games.
TV Azteca will carry 17 Sunday afternoon games on Azteca 7, the Thanksgiving Day game featuring the Colts at Detroit, and five AFC playoff games.

I wonder if the deal is restricted to one of the braodcast medias like cable or satellite or something else?
