Ziggo loses appeal to extend Fox Sports contract

Monday 3 July 2017 | 09:03 CET | News
VodafoneZiggo has lost a court appeal to hold onto the Fox football channels under the same terms. The company asked for a court injunction allowing it to continue carrying Fox Sports Eredivisie under the same terms when its current contract expires at the end of July. The court sided with Eredivisie Media & Marketing, saying Ziggo must agree a new contract or face losing the channels. EMM said this was a "victory for Dutch sport fans".
