The deal with IMG Worldwide will “mean games already broadcast in more than 200 countries worldwide are screened on select airlines and shipping lines using technology not available when the last TV deal was struck three years ago.” IMG in a release said that matches "would be shown live and in highlights on the Sport 24 channel on specially-equipped Lufthansa and Gulf Air planes as well as Norwegian Cruise Liners, and that discussions were taking place with a number of other airlines and cruise liner companies" (London TELEGRAPH, 12/4).
