Media Notes: Spanish Hoops Fans Angry With Mediaset's Plan Sept. 4 FIBA World Cup Game

Spain's FIBA World Cup game against Serbia on Sept. 4 will tip off at 10pm local time, but "it is possible" that the start of Mediaset's coverage of the game will be delayed to 10:50pm due to "a schedule conflict with the Spanish national football team's friendly against France" at 9pm. With the games overlapping, Mediaset, which owns the rights to both contests, "is planning to delay coverage of the basketball game," which has "exasperated fans of basketball." Using the hashtag #AscoMediaset, thousands have "taken to Twitter showing their frustration" with the broadcaster's plan (LIBERTAD DIGITAL, 8/18). ... Before Barcelona's exhibition game against Liga MX side León on Monday, an announcer for Spanish channel TV3 "had some controversial words." The commentator said, "It's not worth it to announce the lineups for León" (LIBERTAD DIGITAL, 8/18). ...
