TV RIGHTS CLIPS 1: Football: Uefa Champions League, Euro 2012 and more

Football: Italian commercial broadcaster Mediaset acquired the rights to the Uefa Champions League and Europa League in a three year-deal, from 2012-13 to 2014-15, with Uefa. The deal is thought to be worth around €60m ($80m) per season, with the amount thought to be split roughly equally between the two properties. Mediaset will have exclusive free-to-air rights to the first-pick Champions League match on Wednesday night plus highlights of all other matches on Tuesday and Wednesday night. It will show the matches on either the Canale 5 or Italia 1 channel. The broadcaster acquired all Europa League television rights exclusively. It will split coverage between free-to-air channels Italia 1 and Rete 4 and its digital-terrestrial pay-television service, Mediaset Premium. The deal includes rights to the Uefa Super Cup, and mobile and internet rights to all its matches (page 1).
