Channel 5 win Football League rights


Channel 5 are set to announce a three-year deal to show all Football League and Capital One Cup highlights. The deal will begin next season with a 9pm slot lined up for the show.

The news comes soon after it was revealed that the BBC could lose the right to show Premier League highlights for the first time since 2004. It emerged last month that ITV was preparing to bid for them.

If ITV won those rights, the BBC could potentially be left with only the FA Cup and international tournaments to show.
