Real Madrid Negotiating To Provide Its TV Channel For Free
Real Madrid is "very close" to reaching a deal that will allow it to secure free-to-air coverage for its official television channel, according to the ECODIARIO. The reports suggest that Real Madrid TV would take over the television slot currently occupied by Marca TV. Negotiations are "underway" and the deal could be official in "a matter of weeks." If the deal is completed, Real Madrid President Florentino Perez would accomplish "one of his dreams"-- making Real Madrid TV accessible to all the Madrid fans. Currently, the channel is only available if you subscribe and pay a monthly fee. This would allow Real Madrid to rival Barcelona FC which has Barça TV available to all its fans in Catalonia for free (ECODIARIO, 6/12).
