TURIN – The super-challenge Juventus-Inter, which will be played behind closed doors due to the Coronavirus emergency, could be transmitted, in exceptional circumstances, in the clear. In fact, it is not expected that the Serie A matches will be broadcast in the clear, they usually air, exclusively for a fee, on Sky Sport or on Dazn.
Juventus-Inter free to air on Tv8? We need the government's ok.
Sky has proposed to broadcast this big match in the clear, as a gift to all fans who cannot go to the stadium and who do not have a subscription to the satellite platform. The appreciation of the FIGC arrived almost immediately, which has no reason to oppose this decision in such a delicate period for the country. Now only the yes from the government is missing.
But the initiative of Sky, as gazzetta.it writes, first displaced the Serie A League, because the law does not provide that the matches of the Serie A football championship are broadcast in the clear, unless there are higher reasons, as a provision for public order.
Not surprisingly, Codacons asked for an ad hoc intervention by the government that temporarily changes the current regulatory framework. The other TV operators, moreover, have already made themselves heard – RAI first of all – by applying to broadcast the game on free on their channels.
And in via Rosellini they have no intention of creating a diplomatic incident. Moral of the story: without government intervention, Juventus-Inter will hardly be broadcast in the clear (source gazzetta.it).
