LIV Sports bags exclusive mobile & Internet rights to Champions Tennis League

LivSports.inMulti Screen Media (MSM) owned LIV Sports has secured the exclusive mobile and Internet broadcasting rights to the Champions Tennis League (CTL) happening next month (November 17-26).

While the terms of the deal were not disclosed, Sony LIV Sports mentioned that it will be live streaming the tournament on its website and its mobile apps across iOS and Android. It will also be providing tournament highlights on demand to consumers. Earlier this month, LIV Sports had also inked an exclusive tie-up to secure the Internet and mobile broadcast rights for the Indian qualifiers of UEFA Euro 2016.

FIFA World Cup John Doe Order: MSM had launched LIV Sports in June this year, in time for the 2014 FIFA World Cup for which the company had the official mobile and Internet broadcasting rights. A month later, the company had also filed a complaint with the Delhi High Court, following which as many as 472 websites including Google Docs, Google Video and Google’s URL shortener goo.gl were blocked in the country. 

The list was later revised to 219 websites after ISPs appealed and the new list didn’t include any Google websites. Strangely however, the blocks weren’t removed even two weeks after the World Cup 2014 ended.

In January this year, MSM that had acquired exclusive rights to the India-New Zealand TV series, had also received an interim injunction from Delhi High Court, preventing cricket websites ESPNCricinfo, Cricbuzz and the online version of Radio One, from providing live commentary or updates online. Following this, Cricket sites like ESPNCricinfo and Cricbuzz had delayed its live updates from the tournament by 5 overs. (Also readThe War On News, Live)
