Being that cricket
is in the air in India, it's no shock to hear of all these broadcast deals
getting inked at the eleventh hour. Now, Asian Television Network (ATN) has announced that it has purchased the exclusive Canadian rights to broadcast the Champions League Twenty20 Tournaments cricket series for the next three years. The 2008 series will be aired live and rebroadcast on ATN's CBN and ATN-Cricket Plus in the Great North, and more importantly, the events will be telecast in high-def across Canada next year. Not quite sure too many Canucks will choose this over hockey
, but having the option sure will be nice.
