TF1's Téléfoot magazine show faces axe as pay-TV broadcasters seek to protect rights

MDR slams ARD over spending on football rights

ARD, the German public-service broadcaster, has come in for criticism from one of its member regional networks for its level of spending on top soccer broadcast rights. The council of MDR has submitted a document flagging up what it feels is the imbalanced share of ARD’s sports rights budget that is spent on soccer and the negative effect that it has on the breadth of sports coverage shown on public-service television. The paper claims that around 70 per cent of the budget is spent on soccer rights, but that the sport only contributes to 29 per cent of ARD’s sports programming output. MDR’s council is looking for a reduction in the soccer rights budget in the long term, along with transparent information on the anticipated production costs when authorizing ARD’s sports rights purchases.

The changing face of football media

The changing face of football media | Broadcast Sport | Scoop.it

There used to be a very well defined football media in England. The established mainstream media had a vice-like grip over opinion and the news agenda. Clubs had little direct access to supporters, so were beholden to journalists who had an influential voice. But the landscape has shifted, and it is continuing to evolve.
