FINAL WIMBLEDON BIDS MADE BY NBC AND FOX
Published November 10, 1994
Yesterday, NBA and Fox made their final bids on a new 6-year Wimbledon contract. Incumbents HBO and NBC "most likely" bumped their annual fee from a current combined figure of $20M to $25M- plus. Fox Sports spokesperson Vince Wladika denied Fox and its fX cable partner met the $35M a year goal they would need to win the U.S. rights. Wladika: "That's the wrong terms and dollars, and it's not just for U.S. rights." Fox hopes to combine European and Asian satellite rights, which NBC and HBO contend should be separated from U.S. rights (Rudy Martzke, USA TODAY, 11/10).
