Paramount is to increase its free-to-air coverage of the Australian A-Leagues but matches will no longer be shown on its flagship linear television channel, Ten, as part of a new domestic broadcast schedule.

The media group, which operates the Ten Network and Paramount+ subscription streaming service in Australia, will broadcast two A-League Men matches per round on free-to-air channel 10 Bold throughout the second season of its five-season media rights agreement with Australian Professional Leagues (APL). Last season, only one match per round was shown on free-to-air television but was broadcast on the more high-profile Ten.
