No live FIFA World Cup on DD

Ten Sports, which won the global telecast rights for FIFA World Cup, has asked DD Sports to provide only deferred transmission on its terrestrial network.

According to Doordarshan sources, Ten Sports has written to them asking not to air the Cup matches on the terrestrial network at the same time that Ten Sports airs the matches. They have also communicated that airing realtime is not possible as Ten Sports has the exclusive rights to air the matches.

This implies that Doordarshan will not be allowed to air the football matches real-time and instead viewers will be dished out recorded versions of the game. DD Sports has rights to air the World Cup matches on its terrestrial network.

The sources also pointed out that DD is at present examining the proposal from Ten Sports and a decision will be taken soon.
