Following the collapse of ITV Digital last week, the League is ‘parcelling up its rights,’ to prepare them for sale, according to a source close to negotiations.
‘The League will have to find a way to sell its rights,’ added the source, ‘it’s got to be sorted out this summer and ready and able by August’.
The source said it is likely that the party that will buy the broadcasting rights will be free-to-air television instead of pay-tv.
The League will also seek ‘legal procedures against ITV Digital and Carlton and Granada’.
