Rights & restrictions

Sports rights are a complicated business, but it’s crucial to get them right. That’s why we provide easy-to-understand rights and restrictions information with every video clip so that you know what you can show (and what you can’t). If you still have queries about territories or type of media, you can always call or email our Sports News Desk 24 hours a day.

Thanks to our relationships with over 200 rightsholders, we offer more highlights than anyone else and we are constantly working to improve our portfolio for both broadcast and digital.

For more detailed information on our extensive coverage, please go to our planning calendar.

For a more detailed introduction to our service and to access rights, restrictions and scripting information please get in touch with our Sports News Desk on +44 (0)20 8233 5770
