Seven (Southern Cross)

I wonder if 7 (or maybe the AFL) bothered to negotiate for the local rights to the Tasmanian team’s games considering they obviously don’t (currently) own 7 Tasmania.

I believe there is something within the deal that provides a variation (over the current deal) for a Tasmanian team.

That is the problem with the different schedule. It could hit 10:30 and suddenly cut to the Melbourne feed with election coverage which 7 Tasmania are trying to hide. WIN will not cut to Melbourne coverage as 9/9Gem are switching to the Sydney feed from at least 12:30pm to at least 6:30am the next day.

I am sure that Seven are aware of where their assets are and where they are not

There would have to be a provision in there. Having the local teams on FTA rather than locked away on pay services is also in the AFL’s best interests.

When does this deal run to again? The team certainly won’t be playing until 2027/8 at the earliest!

2025-31. Tasmania was bidding for a team in 2025 but the process is taking its time.
