Norwich City earned £46.07m in Premier League television money for the 2012/13, according to official figures released on Tuesday morning.
The Canaries' 11th placed league finish was matched by their position in the rankings of income shared between the 20 Premier League clubs, based on league positions and television revenues.
City's latest tranche of top flight money was slightly up on last season's £45.6m after finishing one place higher than in their debut campaign back in the big time.
Norwich's 2012/13 is broken down into a merit payment, based on league position, of £7.55m and a facilities fee, based on domestic television coverage, of £5.78m. All 20 clubs earned an equal share for Premier League membership (£13.8m per club) and overseas television revenue (£18.93m per club).
Champions Manchester United earned a record £60.8million after winning the title - but even the club that finishes bottom next season will exceed that income due to the top flight's huge new broadcasting deals.
The Premier League is close to finalising its deals which will see a total of around £5.5billion in broadcasting rights for the 2013-16 period - some £2billion more than the current deals.
The league champions next season can expect to earn close to £100million in broadcast earnings while the bottom club, which this season was QPR, can expect their earnings to go up from £39.8million to around £63million - more than United earned from the most recent campaign.
