MILAN, June 5 Four broadcasters, including
Italy's Mediaset and Sky Italia, have presented bids to
obtain rights to televise Italy's top-flight soccer league
between 2015 and 2018, sources with knowledge of the matter
The other bidders are Fox and Eurosport, the two
sources said, adding that no telecoms operators had bid for
broadcast rights via internet.
Italy's deep recession has hit spending on luxuries like
television football subscriptions hard but broadcasters have
also been worried by a slide in matchday attendances.
