So sanity has finally prevailed and the soccer-loving public can rest assured that there will be no TV soccer blackout after all.
In fact, the deal signed between the PSL and the SABC guarantees unprecedented television soccer coverage considering that only about 100 of 275 matches were broadcast live last season.
According to the new deal, the SABC will broadcast 143 games on SABC free-to-air television, 110 of these will be broadcast by the SABC exclusively. SuperSport has the right to broadcast a minimum of 145 games.
The games include some of the knockout competition finals and-or semifinals. Each broadcaster shall be responsible for the production of the games over which it enjoys exclusive coverage.
A closer look at the deal reveals that everybody wins. Football will now get what it is worth - R1,6billion over five years - after years of being undervalued.
And supporters will benefit in that the league will no longer be under pressure to increase ticket prices with enough television revenue.
The couch potatoes will also enjoy a broader choice of local action.
And the fact that each broadcaster shall be responsible for the production of the games over which it enjoys exclusive coverage will ensure the creation and saving of many jobs.
