Fox Sports LatAm rejects talk of Sportflix rights deal

Pay-television broadcaster Fox Sports Latin America has denied reports that it has entered into a rights partnership with Sportflix, a new over-the-top sports streaming platform that will launch in the region this month.

Various reports in Mexican media said Fox Sports Latin America had agreed to make its coverage of the Superliga Argentina top-tier club football competition available to Sportflix.

The 2017-18 Superliga Argentina season kicks off on August 25, just days before Sportflix is due to go live.

However, Fox Sports Latin America has now issued a statement to say that it has “no knowledge” of the deal and “no contact has been established with Sportflix”.

The statement, published in full by Minutouno.com, added: “Fox Sports Latin America categorically denies having maintained or is currently in conversation or negotiation related to our sporting rights with the company Sportflix.

“We have no knowledge of this company and no contact has been made with it.”
