ESPN Announces 12-Year Deal For Wimbledon Media Rights
Published July 5, 2011
ESPN plans to make some taped programming available on ABC for weekend afternoon programming, including re-airs of the men’s and women’s finals and a three-hour recap during the tournament’s middle Sunday. It also will make matches available via its broadband (ESPN3) and mobile (Watch ESPN) applications. The fact that ESPN is taking Wimbledon rights from NBC, which has been trying to build Versus as a potential competitor, also was an impetus to ESPN’s push for the deal.
