The Sports Rights Thread

Universal thread for tracking the bids, winners and losers in the world of TV sports rights.

The UK’s FTA rights to the NFL are heading to ITV for the next three years, from the BBC.

The deal includes a highlights show as well as live coverage of the NY Giants at Green Bay Packers (from Tottenham Hotspur Stadium) and the Denver Broncos at Jacksonville Jaguars (from Wembley) and, of course, the Superbowl itself in February.
