IPL 2018 on Doordarshan? Key matches, opening and closing ceremony to be telecast on DD, claims report
Indian Premier League 2018 matches will be telecast on Doordashan as well, if reports are to be believed. According to Republic TV, some key IPL 2018 matches, opening and closing ceremony will be broadcast on Doordarshan (DD).
The report also claimed that there will be 50:50 revenue sharing between Star India and Doordarshan for the broadcast of IPL 2018.
Star India, in September, won the television, digital, Indian and global media rights to IPL for the next five seasons, paying Rs16,347.50 crore. Until 2017, Sony Pictures Networks held the television broadcasting rights of IPL for 10 years (since 2008).
According to the Sports Broadcasting Signals (Mandatory Sharing with Prasar Bharati) Act, 2007 (and a 2012 notification), all private broadcasters are required to share live broadcasting signals of sporting events of “national importance” with Prasar Bharati simultaneously, to enable the public broadcaster to re-transmit them on its terrestrial networks and direct-to-home (DTH) networks.
