US Aussie Rules football fans are going to be denied full coverage of the 2014 AFL Grand Final due to a rights dispute between Seven Network in Australia and Fox Soccer Plus in the United States.
According to AFANA (afana.com), viewers will only able to watch the game itself and will be denied access to the pre-game festivities and post-game celebration because Seven is insisting on payment for music rights for all of the music used in the pre- and post-game shows.
This was never an issue until the 2013 Grand Final. This is not an issue during the regular season with highlighted games, like ANZAC weekend, so why is it only an issue for the Grand Final?
Fans in the US want and deserve full coverage! We want Seven, Fox Soccer Plus, and the AFL to resolve this impasse and restore full coverage of the 2014 Grand Final!
Airing pre- and post-game segments will allow new fans and casual viewers the opportunity to learn more about this sport.
