Now that NBC is married to Vivendi and Telemundo, could their soccer strategies change?
To what, exactly?
Soccer on Telemundo is staying right where it is. If NBC acquires any non-Olympic soccer (and that will be the day) it will be MLS, and until they break their vows with ABC/ESPN/Disney (and again, that will be the day), Dick Ebersol keeps his hands clean of the game of soccer until he dies.
Of course, it could all happen tomorrow, you never know with these things, and Arena Football on NBC was surprising to me, but I don't think GE helped NBC acquire Telemundo to aid their sports programming.
When can NBC afford soccer?
They went down the tubes with the money they spent on the Olympics and the XFL.
What ticks me off about this merger is that Vivendi
plans to sell Newsworld International to Al Gore!
IMHO, NWI is the best news channel on cable! we
sure don't need another partisan yap-fest to add to
FNC,CNN,MSNBC & CSPAN.
Al Gore is a robot
Purchasing a network from Vivendi: $70 million dollars
Having Al Gore head up the cutting-edge youth oriented programming - "cross between CNN and Mtv": Priceless
I watch Newsworld International sometimes. They show highlights of various European leagues on some of their international news programs, which is nice.
