The MP & Silva agency has secured a solid increase in the value of Serie A media rights in Turkey, but will wait to see how the market develops before committing to a deal for more than one season.
Turkish pay-television operator Digiturk has appointed Yousef Al-Obaidly as its new chief executive, following its recent takeover by beIN Media Group.
Turkish state broadcaster TRT is set to sublicense a package of Euro 2016 matches to pay-television operator Digiturk.
The renewal by Turkish pay-television operator Digiturk’s of its domestic Süper Lig rights was confirmed by the Turkish competition authority, Rekabet Kurumu, in November.
The Euroleague doubled the value of its media rights in Turkey this month as pay-television operator Digiturk ousted incumbent rights-holder, NTV Spor.
