Abstract

Use it or lose it regime

• A legislated scheme lacks the flexibility required to deal with complex sports rights negotiations and will inevitably result in events being wrongly delisted.

• Any Ministerial decision to remove an event from the list should be a disallowable instrument.

Allegations of Hoarding

• There is no evidence of hoarding by the free-to-air networks. Last year, free-to-air networks broadcast 1648 hours of listed sport.
