More Details on UK Premiership Rights Rejiggering; Mobile Clips During Matches

After the European Commission approved an English Premier League deal to divide soccer TV rights in UK, some more details emerge, especially on the new media side. Some of the Premiership’s biggest matches could be broadcast exclusively over the internet from next year rather than via pay TV…live games would be offered on a “technologically neutral” basis for the first time.
Mobile phone companies will also be able to offer goal clips during matches rather than at the end, and clubs will be able to podcast their games to internet subscribers from midnight on the day they are played.
