Hey football fans, more games could be coming your way soon!

According to a report from the Associated Press, the Supreme Court is about to consider a case brought on by people and business owners who bought the “NFL Sunday Ticket” package from DirecTV.

When a lower court recently decided that the satellite deal limits competition, and therefore violates federal law, the NFL tried to appeal.

However, the Supreme Court rejected that request, and is now moving the case forward.

The deal between the league and DirecTV goes back to the mid 1990s.

If the court decides against it, those games could get divided up among the broadcast and cable networks, putting them in front of millions more fans. That is, of course, if blackouts and other issues don’t interfere.

Game on?! It could very well be!
