No takers yet for Telefonica football licence - report

Monday 15 July 2019 | 10:31 CET | News
Only a few weeks before the start of the new football season and Telefonica has yet to sign any licensing deals for distribution of La Liga, writes El Economista. If no other operator or OTT provider takes the football package, the operator will carry the full cost on its own, while benefiting from exclusive rights to the national and European football leagues.
