Foxtel may win in possible changes to anti-siphoning list
Dept of Communications reportedly advises Minister to make minor changes to the "anti-siphoning list."
Foxtel could nab more sports rights after the Department of Communications advised Communications Minister Mitch Fifield to make minor changes to the “anti-siphoning list.”
Fairfax reports it recommended removing some “minor” events – such as the FA Cup final – from the list of 1300 sports events
Foxtel chief executive Richard Freudenstein has called repeatedly for events such as the FA Cup final, the US Masters golf, the US Open tennis and matches in the FIFA World Cup not involving Australia be taken off the list.
No changes are expected to NRL, AFL or the Melbourne Cup.
