Sport TV wins soccer rights

Portugal's leading sports channel Sport TV has renewed soccer broadcasting rights for the First and Second Nacional Leagues known as Liga BWin and Liga Vitalis until the season 2011-2012.

The acquisition was made together with operator PPTV belonging to Olivedesportos. From now on the sports channel will have to negotiate with other free-to-air channels such as RTP, SIC and TVI for the broadcasting of a weekly match in the clear.
