Iñaki Ferreras | 30-09-2012

Spanish free to air sports channel Marca TV has acquired a package of La Liga rights from the Mediapro agency.

The deal runs for the duration of the current season and entitles Marca TV to live rights to one top flight Spanish football match per week.

The free-to-air package has previously been held by La Sexta, a sister channel of the RCS MediaGroup-owned broadcaster, but La Sexta is currently the subject of a takeover bid by rival broadcaster Antena 3.
