Euroleague extends Spanish rights deals

Spanish public-service broadcaster TV3 Catalunya and the Movistar Plus broadcast platform of telco Telefónica have extended rights deals for the Euroleague continental club basketball competition.

The lengths of the agreements were not disclosed, although Euroleague Basketball, which operates the competition, said that the deals would cover the “coming seasons”.

TV3 Catalunya has been a broadcast partner of Euroleague Basketball for more than a decade and serves as the host broadcaster of Liga ACB and Euroleague team FC Barcelona Lassa.

It covers the Euroleague in its entirety, including a selection of games featuring other teams and the league’s weekly highlights show.

Euroleague Basketball said the investments from both TV3 Catalunya and Telefónica are “much higher” than before.
