The Olympic Games represent significant revenue for television networks, but in Mexico, the major networks Televisa and TV Azteca will not be broadcasting the events of Rio 2016.
This year, the sporting event will be seen on the Internet platform Claro Sports and public television’s Canal 11 and Canal 22.
America Movil, Carlos Slim’s company, obtained the broadcast rights of the 2014 Sochi Olympic Winter Games and Rio 2016 in 17 countries in Latin America. According to data from El Economista, the agreement between America Movil and the International Olympic Committee amounted to billions of dollars.
Now, one hundred days from the kickoff of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, it was announced that the two main television channels in Mexico, Televisa and TV Azteca, will not have broadcasting rights.
According to a report in Proceso, Claro Sports will broadcast the Olympics on the Internet. In broadcast television, you will find some events on Canal 11 and others on Canal 22, which are public television. On Pay TV, ESPN and Fox Sports will transmit the Games.
For his part, however, Slim said he is still open to negotiations with other networks for broadcast of Rio 2016.
