Best Answer

It was 1962 when CBS and the NFL agreed on a contract to televise all games played. However, games have been televised as far back as 1939 with a game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Brooklyn Dodgers being the first game to be televised by a major network (NBC). In 1950, the Los Angeles Rams and the Washington Redskins were the first teams to have all of their games televised in their local market and many other teams had contracts to televise some of their games that season.
