FOXTEL WELCOMES AFL RIGHTS AGREEMENT
Fox Footy to Remain the Home of AFL until 2022
Foxtel CEO, Richard Freudenstein today welcomed the agreement between the AFL and News Corp Australia that will see Fox Footy remain the home of AFL until at least the end of 2022.
“This is great news for Foxtel subscribers,” he said. “AFL fans know that Fox Footy provides superlative coverage of their game, with both great match coverage and informative and entertaining magazine shows that cover every aspect of the competition.
“This deal builds on the strong set of rights Fox Footy has today and ensures that the channel will be the only place where you can see every game of every round, including the final series (excluding the Grand Final), live for many years to come.
“If you love AFL you need to be a Foxtel subscriber, and with our recently reduced pricing there’s really no reason not to sign up.
“Under this deal, for the first time, Fox Footy will be able to be broadcast on all devices, which means that if you subscribe to Foxtel Play or use Foxtel Go, you’ll now be able to watch all games on PCs and Macs as well as tablets, phones and games consoles.
“Foxtel is very proud of its association with the AFL and we look forward to providing an even better service to the League and its millions of fans.”
