NBC Sports Network has acquired multiyear rights from DirecTV to air "The Dan Patrick Show," it was announced Sunday night.

The show will make its debut on NBCSN tomorrow, and air weekdays from 9 a.m.–noon.

As a bonus, DirecTV will relocate NBCSN from channel 603, the Sports Pack, to channel 220, which is the basic package.

“Dan and the Danettes generate buzz and relevance every day with their entertaining format and top-line guests, making The Dan Patrick Show a perfect morning fit for the NBC Sports Network and its new channel position on DIRECTV,” Jon Miller, president, of programming for NBC Sports and NBC Sports Network, said in a statement.

“I’ve loved my time working for NBC Sports, on both 'Football Night in America' and the Olympic coverage, and I really wanted to see our show on NBC Sports Network,” Patrick said in a statement. “This is good for the show, the channel and, most of all, the fans. I think the show that we have created with DirecTV will be perfect for NBC Sports Network as part of its daily lineup.”
