Eddie Gibbs welcomes industry expert Robin Jellis (@robinjellis) of @TVSportsMarkets to dig deep into the latest UK TV rights deal for English Premier League football announced last week.
5 of the 7 TV rights packages have been sold so far with regular broadcasters Sky and BT making sure they keep as much coverage possible. The new-age tech giants (Facebook, YouTube, Amazon, Twitter etc) have stayed away from the main auction, will they bid for the remaining 2 simulcast packages?
In an in-depth discussion, Robin shares his thoughts on:
- Premier League TV Rights... Past, Present, Future
- How the Premier League rights value matches up to other sports
- International Premier League Rights and the maturing global market
- 3pm block and why UK based Liverpool fans still breach copyright in order to watch every Reds match
