AFL Tasmania has pulled out of negotiations with ABC Television over the broadcasting of state league football.

The broadcaster has told leagues in South Australia, Victoria, Western Australia and Tasmania it wanted them to contribute more money and centralise games.
AFL Tasmania is now in talks with Southern Cross.
The league's general manager, Shaun Young told ABC News he is looking at other options to broadcast live matches, such as the internet.
The ABC says it needs to assess what impact the league's decision will have on sports coverage in Tasmania and elsewhere.
