HotSports cautions FG on sports broadcast rights, urges backing for NTA

first_imgRelatedPosts FG seeks collaboration with agric stakeholders to curb post-harvest losses Strike: Group urges FG, ASUU to embrace dialogue COVID-19: JOHESU issues seven-day warning strike notice to FG Nigeria’s leading sports marketing and broadcasting company, HS Media Group, has urged the Federal Government to strategically support the local industry in line with its recent reforms, which is aimed at competitiveness in sports broadcasting in the country. HS Media Group, which provided live broadcast for the Africa Cup of Nations held in Egypt last year, said the government should empower and position the nation’s public broadcaster, Nigerian Television Authority, to bid for sports broadcast rights of premium tournaments, including the English Premier League and Spanish LaLiga in addition to the existing partnership with the Federation of International Football Associations and the Confederation of African Football. According to HS Media Group President/CEO, Taye Ige, NTA has the competences, equipment and reach to provide viewing experience for Nigerians in every corner of the country, while other stations would benefit from the rights. He said the liberation of the Nigerian economy has worked positively for the country in several aspects, making reference to the telecommunication sector where opening up the industry has encouraged competitiveness among players and multiple choices by the consumers. Ige however urged the government to be cautious by not breaching the spirit of liberalisation through an immediate review of ongoing broadcasting right. “In the case of SuperSport for instance, the exclusive right to air the English Premier League for sub-Saharan Africa is expected to run till 2022,” he stated. “The government should allow that contract to run its full course while preparing the Nigerian broadcast sector for the next bid round. The government should remember that right issues are purely economic decisions that cannot be regulated by fiat but by market forces.” Ige advised that the government should encourage broadcast operators in Nigeria to become competitive with their foreign counterparts in line with the pronouncement by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, to reposition the industry. In his words: “It is gladdening to hear the Minister of Information and Culture say that the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) would immediately implement measures aimed creating jobs, promoting local content, boosting the advert industry and bringing the broadcast industry up to par with the best practices from around the world. I will therefore expect the government to follow its words with action by aggressively supporting local broadcast entities in all ways.” NTA and HotSports, the leading subsidiary of HS Media Group, jointly provided live broadcast for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations. Not only was HotSports the Official Marketing Agency for NTA’s AFCON transmission, the company also produced all AFCON 2019 matches from its Lagos studios on terrestrial stations of NTA across the country. Founded in 1996, HotSports has exciting and authoritative sports broadcasting packages that offer brand owners a vehicle to the widest sports loving audience in Nigeria. It is the Official Media Partner as well as marketing consultants to the Nigeria Football Federation and has become reputable as a go-getting company committed to adding value to clients’ sponsorship investments.
