Pakistan Cricket Board Signs TV-Rights Contracts With Ten Sports, Geo Super Channels

Dubai-based TV channel Ten Sports and Pakistani sports channel Geo Super bagged the television rights for Pakistan's upcoming series against South Africa and Sri Lanka, in the UAE, respectively. The values of the deals have been kept confidential by the PCB, but the board said they are "higher" than the previous contract. Both the broadcasters will cover the production cost as well as that of the technology used for the DRS on their own.

"The PCB will not be announcing the rights-fee amounts finalized for these tours," a PCB spokesman said. "The offers, however, are significantly higher than the values that PCB had received for these series under the previous media rights contract."

Ten claimed a series of two Tests, five ODIs and two T20s, while Geo will be televising three Tests, five ODIs and two T20s along with the one-off T20 between Pakistan and Afghanistan. Pakistan's previous five-year deal with Ten concluded in July, with the PCB contemplating series-by-series deals while the caretaker board set-up, led by Najam Sethi, is in charge; the interim setup of the PCB affected the chances of securing a long-term deal, with Sethi's powers limited and reduced to a day-to-day basis. - See more at: http://www.pakistantoday.com.pk/2013/09/07/news/sports/pcb-strikes-up-short-term-tv-rights-deals/#sthash.vwxvPBPG.dpuf
