Here are the main highlights of the improved coverage on Setanta Sports this year:
Setanta will have exclusive rights to broadcast the following:
- Up to 3 LIVE AFL Matches for each round of the Premiership Season (coverage in April will begin with at least 2 live matches per week)
- Beginning in 2008, selected matches in NAB preseason Cup also live
- All Matches in the AFL finals including the Grand Final live
- International Rules Series - live if it continues
- Delayed broadcast of 5 AFL Matches for each round of the Premiership Season
In addition, Setanta will continue to air the AFL one hour highlights program on an non-exclusive basis. This provides fans outside Australia coverage on a par with that in major Australian cities for the first time. AFANA congratulates Setanta and the AFL on this ground-breaking deal and is pleased we were able to be supportive throughout the long negotiation process. MHz Networks will continue to carry the one and two hour taped programs as they did last year.
We will continue to update this story more information becomes available. Fans should also see our Chairman's blog related to this.
