UK government may extend reserved sports in digital domain – Digital TV Europe

The UK government is to review broadcast rules around major sporting events to look at whether public service broadcasters should be guaranteed the opportunity to buy digital rights.

The Digital Rights Review, launched today, will look at whether the government’s free-to-air ‘listed events’ rules should be reformed so that public service broadcasters including the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5 are guaranteed the opportunity to show certain major events such as the Olympics and World Cup on their digital platforms rather than just focusing on traditional TV broadcasting as is the case today.
