Scudamore: Premier League TV deal up in the air
Wednesday 21 March 2012
Richard Scudamore, the chief executive of the Premier League, said yesterday that his organisation is still considering selling its TV rights on a pan-European basis when they are next up for sale in 2013.
The deliberations are because the European Court of Justice last year stated that homeowners could buy decoders showing foreign broadcasts without penalty. "There's not a decision yet as to whether we're going to do a domestic deal or not," Scudamore said. "We are still working on whether we go pan-European."
