NEP are the current behind the scenes production company for both 7 and fox. They provide the cameras, and any at ground equipment needed to air the game. So instead of Ch7 or fox paying for this, the AFL could directly. If you’re outside the ground you might see their trucks, which is where their directors are to change the camera feeds, play graphics and replays. NEP provides 7/fox with a pure output with all graphics for direct play on TV with no intervention.Who or what are NEP?

What/who are PLP?
PLP is premier league productions. They do a combination of what NEP does (they provide all cameras at all EPL games) but also act as the host broadcaster (have commentators at the ground, have people back in the studio for analysis). If you watch EPL outside of the UK, PLP has been the production company behind it.
