The Cablers: TNN tackles rights to XFL

Games to air on Sundays Feb. 11 to April 8

NEW YORK — The National Network (TNN) has landed exclusive cable rights to the XFL, which will begin airing on the Viacom-owned cabler in February.

The smash-mouth football games will air live on TNN on Sunday afternoons, Feb. 11 through April 8.

TNN is hoping that franchises that appeal to young men such as the XFL will help the net transform itself from a country-oriented channel to a general entertainment network.
