London Sun Publisher News UK Chases ITV's Digital Rights For FA Cup

Sun publisher News UK "has kicked off negotiations with ITV to try to take over the last year of the broadcaster's contract for the digital rights to the FA Cup," according to Mark Sweney of the London GUARDIAN. The talks "are understood to be at an early stage, with News UK keen to improve its content offering" behind the £2 ($3)-a-week Sun digital paywall. Sun+, which launched last week, "already includes digital Premier League rights secured by News UK" in a £30M ($47M)-plus three-year deal in January (GUARDIAN, 8/8).
