New Serie A Television Deal

Recommended Posts

Some very good research in those articles. If you have interest in Serie A, I can highly recommend reading them.

Seems to be good news for the smaller clubs in Serie A and, as such, the league in general.

Read about this - Seems to thoroughly screw over Juventus, but oh well. :ay:

It's still a thoroughly unfair deal for the smaller clubs, even if it is better than the previous deal. As even if a team like Atalanta finish well ahead of Milan, they still will make less money as Milan has a bigger fanbase. It's quite a ridiculous situation.

Some interesting details about the new deal in the article above.

Quote

Mediapro’s entry could prove to be a game changer for Serie A, an outsider bringing fresh ideas to the table. In fact, several provisions have already been made upon completion of the deal. Firstly, the grass on all pitches must be the same height and the density of green must be identical. Secondly, advertising boards around the pitch must have precise colours. And thirdly, and perhaps the most important stipulation, is that the sections of the stadium that are in direct line of the hard camera must be filled with spectators. If clubs fail to comply then they will be sanctioned, a process already in place in La Liga.

This would be good for Serie A i reckon. Mediapro also made an offer for our league's TV rights last year, i wish the government would have accepted it instead of the one from Fox-Turner.

How is Serie A coverage in North America? I keep seeing people complaining about BeIN, who currently have the rights, and them not showing some of the prime games of the season.

The league has actually sold its International rights, for the next deal, cheaper to IMG purely because they expect them to be able to increase the visibility of the league around the world. But this might also involve more non-Sunday 3pm kickoffs, especially after the experiment last season of a Saturday lunchtime kickoff.

Did Serie A tell all clubs to boycott it/terminate it cos that is fucking hilarious if so.

It's okay - BeIN does a decent job, but you don't get to watch many matches that don't include Inter, Juve, AC, or Roma. Even Napoli and Lazio aren't on as much as I would like to think.

Pretty much that. I mean, I'm not surprised - it's a bit similar with US coverage of the prem (although more of the matches are on). But if I want to watch Cagliari, they basically have to be playing Milan, Juve, Inter, or Roma - which is usually not great viewing for Cagliari fans xD - I like BeIN a hell of a lot more than Fox though. Fox's CL coverage was an abomination, so much so that I'm going to watch the World Cup on Univision despite not knowing how to speak Spanish.

The one thing I'll give BEin, is that they have one announcer, not sure his name, but usually does the La Liga games and might be the most entertaining announcer I've ever heard, in any sport. xD

I switched to Fubo.tv, and they have a lot more of a selection of games.

I know who you're talking about, but I also don't have a clue what his name is. He's hilarious though.

Important paragraph at the bottom of the article highlighting that Serie A games will be spread across eight different kick off times, effectively meaning there will only be three traditional Sunday afternoon games.
