Puls4 Takes Dispute With ORF Over Champions League Rights To Media Authority
Austrian TV channel Puls4 "will take its dispute with public broadcaster ORF to the country's media authority KommAustria," according to KURIER. ORF "has won the Champions League rights in December and will once again live broadcast the competition starting with the '14-15 season." Puls4 "does not want to accept this outcome and takes its complaint to KommAustria." Puls4 said that ORF has purchased the rights for an "inflated, commercially unjustifiable price," therefore, ORF has distorted the competition. Puls4 calls on KommAustria "to review the process and ultimately reverse the illegitimate process." ORF called the accusations "unprecedented" (KURIER, 1/23).
