A thread to discuss TV / Radio sports rights when announced as it doesn't fit in with the discussion on presentation.

So to start, ITV pick up La Liga rights in a 3 season deal. They will show 10 live games per season.

It was reported that they were interested back in April in The Times.
The article also suggested they were interested in the rights to the ATP and WTA tours which Prime Video has until the end of 2023 and 2024 respectively.

I wrote a piece this evening for a tennis website that explains what it means for tennis fans.

Virgin Media Ireland have announced today that they have acquired the official Republic of Ireland rights to broadcast the Autumn Nations Series Rugby tournament in November for the very first time.

Coverage of these matches also include Ireland 'A' vs New Zealand in the RDS and Munster vs South Africa.

This could also mean for Ireland Rugby fans who are either in the UK or watch Channel 4's coverage in Ireland. It could mean that Channel 4 could also be losing these rights to Amazon Prime Video.

Is there any official chance for the Ireland rights for this tournament to be updated this year for Channel 4 again because the last set of rights for these rugby matches have only expired this year?
