TVNZ Scores TV Rights for English Premier League Football

TVNZ has confirmed it is partnering with Coliseum Sports Media to bring TV coverage of football’s Barclays Premier League to Kiwi sports fans.

TV ONE will present a match of the week game every Sunday from the start of the season. The channel will also broadcast an hour long highlights show on Monday nights.

The deal will see Coliseum showing the entire competition online and TVNZ showing selected matches and weekly highlights on air. Broadcast details are still being finalised and will be publicised closer to the time of the season kick-off in coming weeks.

Jeff Latch, TVNZ’s Head of TV ONE and TV2, says he’s thrilled to bring the premiership back to TV ONE screens after a gap of many years.

“We’re excited to be working with Coliseum to give TV viewers a chance to see the world’s most watched and closely followed football competition. We know football fans are passionate supporters of the beautiful game.

“These are exciting times to be in the media business and this is a fascinating development for premium sports content that we expect to be welcomed by New Zealand viewers.”

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley

For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
