ITV gets deal with Setanta


by David Allen

Following the world cup qualifying fiasco, where this crucial game for England could only be seen on pay for view channel Setanta, something had to be done before the next round of matches came round to ensure that those viewers who did not see the match live could see the highlights on a terrestrial channel for free.

Even the Prime Minister, Gordon Brown aired his views over the lack of TV coverage for these important world cup qualifying matches.

Now it seems as if there has been a deal struck between ITV and Setanta, where the highlights will be shown shortly after the live away games have been shown. ITV already have the rights to show the home games live.

It is not going to please all of the fans, but seeing the highlights has to be better than not seeing anything at all.
