Mexican telecommunications company América Móvil has acquired rights to broadcast the 2015 European Games across Central and South America, further broadening the reach of the inaugural edition of the multi-sport event.
América Móvil, the Mexican telecommunications company owned by multi-billionaire Carlos Slim, has acquired rights for home matches featuring Mexican top-tier football club Universidad de Guadalajara, according to news website La Aficion.
Mexico’s telecommunications regulator, the Instituto Federal de Telecomunicaciones (IFT), is considering forcing Televisa and América Movil to share programming covered by existing ‘exclusive’ rights deals after blocking the media companies from striking such agreements in the future.
