IPL Media Rights: Viacom18 wins the digital right, Disney Star gets the TV

  • While Disney Star won the TV broadcast rights, the loss of streaming rights is a setback.
  • That’s because Hotstar, driven by India’s cricket viewership, accounts for more than a third of Disney+’s 138 million paid subscribers.
  • Board of Control for Cricket in India has cracked Rs 44,075 crore for the next five years –  that’s more than twice of what the cricket board earned from Star in the previous five years.[Via]
