Your fortnightly PDF is moving to Mondays

The way you receive SportBusiness Media – formerly TV Sports Markets – will be changing.

What is happening and why?

Most of you will be familiar with SportBusiness Media and TV Sports Markets arriving in your inbox on a Friday evening.

But from our next issue (publishing on Friday 26th July), we will be slightly amending the time that the email notification is sent, to Monday morning at 9am (BST).

We hope you will get used to starting the week with SportBusiness Media.

What does this mean for you?

If you are a regular user of our website, very little.

Articles will still be published throughout the week as soon as they are complete.

And the newsletter PDF will still be uploaded to the website on a Friday afternoon, if you must have your SportBusiness Media fix over the weekend.

Only the time of the email notification is changing, to what we think is a more helpful time for you, our readers.

If you have any queries or difficulties, please contact Matt Storey on +44 (0) 207 265 4114 or matthew.storey@sportbusiness.com.

Premier League club Liverpool’s decision to launch ‘paid-for’ content options on global video-sharing platform YouTube is a taster of how the platform will develop its sports-broadcasting partnerships.

TF1 and M6’s joint acquisition of Euro 2020 free-to-air rights was struck at a similar per-match fee as the one they paid for the last comparable edition of the tournament, in 2012.

There are two truisms in the sale of sports media rights which at first glance appear difficult to reconcile. One is that every market has a unique set of characteristics and the value earned is contingent upon those characteristics at the moment the rights are sold. The other is that the early deals in a market-by-market sales cycle create a psychological benchmark which affects how sales in the following markets play out.

The International Olympic Committee extended a long run of media-rights revenue growth in Japan in its latest deal with the market’s free-to-air broadcaster consortium for 2026 to 2032, when the special case of the large Tokyo 2020 sales cycle is disregarded.
