Dutch Public Broadcaster NOS, Pay Channel Sport1 Split CAA Eleven Package
Dutch public broadcaster NOS and pay broadcaster Sport1 have both won UEFA national team rights packages, which "are being sold for the first time by the newly-created CAA Eleven agency," according to SOCCEREX. Free-to-air NOS will broadcast all Dutch Euro 2016 and 2018 World Cup qualifying games, plus a highlights program featuring other games in Europe. The games "were previously covered by rival broadcaster SBS." Sport1, meanwhile, "has taken the live rights to all other European qualifying matches over the same four-year period" (SOCCEREX, 12/13).
